In my youth it seemed that overdiagnosis and overtreatment weren’t much of a part of growing up for many people. Sounds like the “good old days” in some ways, I know.

I’ve found that prayer is crucial to everything I do and believe. So you can imagine how interested I’ve been to find prayer surveyed and reported as part of national studies on alternative and complementary therapies. A 2007 report indicated that 77% of the public used prayer in connection with their health and that prayer was among the 10 most common complementary and alternative (CAM) therapies.Continue Reading

I came to the Southern California area in the late 50’s from the Midwest to begin a teaching career. I loved the youthful spirit I found and the encouragement of that “can do” mentality.
