This letter came in this morning from the desk of Dr. Jay Gordon, our family's pediatrician. We treat our family, but have Dr. Gordon as our Western pediatrician and rely on his expertise and good judgement in child development and health.

Here is a list of vaccine friendly docs in your area. If you are looking for a pediatrician who will listen to you and work out your feelings and concerns, this list may be helpful for you. Too many docs have the my way or high way attitude making it difficult to feel comfortable about your child's healthcare. Of course, using excellent preventive medicine, where clinics like ours come in is paramount, but having your western pediatrician on the same page as you is also!
Check out this list and if you know someone who is not on it, post a comment below!

Traditional ideas about food come up in this article. I think it is a great article, and speaking from personal experience I have found much of the information in it applicable to my own life. I never had such a great metabolism as I have had since diverting from vegetarianism to a heavier meat and fat diet (with lots of healthy veggies as well of course).
This is a must read. Oh, BTW- if you will be eating cookies and cakes-we suggest they be naturally sweetened!

Any one who is familiar with Bomamed knows how we feel about water. There has been a plethora of research regarding what we are drinking when we are drinking tap water-even with very sophisticated filters. Medications, chlorine and more may be found in our drinking water. Interestingly, I never thought about what I just read today. This is an interesting article on what else is being found in our water and you wont believe it! Something that we tell all of our patients to stay away from in food bc it causes so many health problems. Don't miss this article:

I thought this was a very insightful article written by Dr. Mercola regarding the hot topic of HRT.
I am less likely than it sounds like he is to recommend bio-identical HRT, but, I do agree that much must be done in addition to it if indeed it is being used. And, I also think that the implementation of diet and lifestyle issues is of great importance. Using herbs that encourage the body to optimize its own hormones may often be an even better approach than the use of bio-identical hormones. Here is what Dr. Mercola says:

There are often serious side effects to commonly used medications for common problems. The following article discusses some pretty serious side effects that may be experienced with common asthma medications.
Considering alternatives to generally used medications for conditions such as asthma is much less risky in that one is not subjecting themselves to the serious side effects of these medications.
