Welcome to the inaugural post of my blog, 'Meditations on Medicine'. I plan on posting here on a weekly basis on a variety of topics in medicine, spanning the width and breadth of this vast field. As a naturopathic doctor, I will be writing from the perspective of someone concerned with promoting the body's innate healing ability and traditional healing methods, but with a broad view, taking in the latest medical advances in treatment and diagnostics. I hope to make this helpful for both laypeople and medical professionals, and it will grow in time, as I learn and grow in my practice. Thanks for reading and stay tuned!
