My colleague Wendy Margolese in Ontario, Canada, published an article with a unique perspective on how spiritual reasoning can arrest fear and prove that health is not dependent on the body. I thought Wendy’s analogy of the ice-axe is worth sharing with my Southern California readers.Continue Reading

“Me heart broken,” my 3-year-old grandson said with tears in his eyes as he hugged his mother. This after he had gotten a little too rough in playing and had accidentally hurt her. Her physical hurt immediately drew a reaction from him – a reaction of sympathy, sorrow, and seeking forgiveness.Continue Reading

Truth is one of the seven synonyms of God as described by Mary Baker Eddy, health researcher and the founder of Christian Science. From Science and Health, Eddy says, “The utterance of truth is designed to rebuke and destroy error. Why should truth not be efficient in sickness, which is solely the result of inharmony?” Every time God’s qualities are expressed – like Life (think joy, exuberance, activity), Soul (think music), and Love (think forgiveness) – health is found and cultivated. And now we have a new study that shows that being truthful is health giving!Continue Reading

Health care seems to be getting more complicated, expensive, and unnecessary over time. 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 think that sports, daily chores, school work, and many other activities all added up to a healthy lifestyle.Continue Reading

For the past couple of years the focus of this blog has been on health. For me health is the domain of spirit. Nineteenth-century health researcher Mary Baker Eddy wrote, “…being is sustained by Spirit, not by matter, and… [you] find health, peace, and harmony in God, divine Love.” But I found this blog, “A Critical Question for Doctors: What is Health?” interesting because the author really delves deeply into the different definitions of health.Continue Reading
