I am a big proponent of holistic medicine when needed, which means Western and Eastern medicine.  A lot of people think holistic means alternative, but wholeness means everything; balance.  However, whether it's acupuncture or antibiotics  to me the key to healing is to learn and grow from our illness and disease.  The four best forms of "medicines" I recommend are:

  1. Being honest with yourself and listening to that quiet, subtle voice in you called intuition.  Your body has wisdom and so many people blow by those intuitive voices and end up paying the price;
  2. Body basics: a whole and balanced diet, exercise, a daily and weekly rhythm, and rest;
  3. Connection with others and the Divine;
  4. The ability to withstand pain, as well as joy in life, and the practice of critical thinking (mental health tools)
