Toward a New Metaphysics of Medicine

Toward a New Metaphysics of Medicine

 Science and philosophy must flourish together, for it is not possible to be deeply informed in one without an equal understanding of the other. –Manly P. Hall, Words to the Wise by Larry Malerba, DO, DHt – Modern science is not always what it claims to be. It is increasingly faith-based, it is not conducive to freethinking, and medicine in […]

The Impact of Neglecting Medical Philosophy

The Impact of Neglecting Medical Philosophy

Adapted from Dr. Larry Malerba’s new book, Metaphysics & Medicine: Restoring Freedom of Thought to the Art and Science of Healing. For quite some time now, freedom of thought has been under siege within the medical profession. More often than not, the war against new ideas is justified in the name of science. When a discipline like science becomes so […]

The True Causes of ADHD

The True Causes of ADHD

By Larry Malerba, DO – There is no one causative factor that can be ascribed to attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). It is a complex and multifactorial spectrum of problems. The tendency for mainstream medicine to attribute ADHD to faulty brain chemistry is a false premise and gross oversimplification that comes from its limited reductionistic perspective and its desire to […]

How Suppression Causes Chronic Illness

How Suppression Causes Chronic Illness

By Larry Malerba, DO, DHt – Most doctors and patients have some awareness of the concept of suppression as it applies to medicine – but what is it really and what impact does it have upon health? The average person tends to describe suppression in immunologic terms; in other words, it is believed to be a type of weakening of the […]

A Healing Vision for the Future

by Larry Malerba, DO, DHt – With the end of the Mayan calendar now upon us, I would like to offer some thoughts regarding where we have been, where we are going, and what this may all mean for our present lives and the future of humankind. The more aware we are about the choices we make, the less likely we […]

The Paradox of the Wounded Healer

The Paradox of the Wounded Healer

by Larry Malerba, DO, DHt – Archeologists recently discovered yet another ancient sanctuary dedicated to Asklepios thanks to a road construction project about 125 miles north of Athens in Greece. Over 300 such temples have been previously identified all across Europe and Northern Africa. While many are familiar with Hippokrates, the father of medicine, few are aware of Asklepios, the […]

Is Modern Medicine More Science or Religion?

Is Modern Medicine More Science or Religion?

By Larry Malerba, DO, DHt – Is modern medicine more science or religion? Medicine projects the image of scientific rigor but has all the hallmarks of a system of religious belief. The practical consequence of its insular perspective is the dead-end system of Western medical materialism that we have today. Repair of the physical body is erroneously equated with healing. […]

What Is the Green Medicine Revolution? (Part III)

What Is the Green Medicine Revolution? (Part III)

Larry Malerba, DO, DHt – One Size Does Not Fit All: The rising green revolution will not settle for the conventional medical status quo. Green medicine transcends the cookie-cutter model that erroneously believes that most, if not all, persons with the same medical condition should respond to the same treatment. It seeks to improve upon the pharmaceutical/surgical tunnel vision of corporate medicine […]

Isn’t it Time to Occupy Big Medicine?

Isn’t it Time to Occupy Big Medicine?

by Larry Malerba, DO, DHt – With all the buzz surrounding the specter of cataclysmic change that may soon be upon us as the Mayan calendar comes to an end in December, it’s a good time to take stock of life here on planet Earth. While doomsday predictions will no doubt garner much of the attention from the mainstream media, […]

Medical Apartheid is Dividing Healthcare

Medical Apartheid is Dividing Healthcare

by Larry Malerba, DO, DHt – Let’s face it, we have created an increasingly divided medical system that resembles a form of apartheid. This medical apartheid is, not surprisingly, a reflection of the polarized society in which we live. The etymology of the term “apart-heid” essentially translates into “separate” “hood.” The unnatural divide has reached extreme proportions as the balance […]

What Is the Green Medicine Revolution? (Part II)

What Is the Green Medicine Revolution? (Part II)

by Larry Malerba, DO, DHt – A green medical approach seeks innovation and is open to all healing methodologies, new or old, Western or Eastern, left-brained or right. Green medicine brings together the best of conventional and alternative resources. It is not about eliminating one in favor of the other. It is about achieving a balanced approach that seeks unity but […]

The Bioenergetic Basis of Illness (Part II)

The Bioenergetic Basis of Illness (Part II)

By: Larry Malerba, DO, DHt – In Part I we discussed how some of the energy of a moving car is transferred to the persons in the vehicle after a crash. Thus, we can conceptualize whiplash, for example, as more than just physical trauma since it also manifests as a result of energy becoming locked, so to speak, in the […]

Understanding the Roots of Medical Dysfunction

Understanding the Roots of Medical Dysfunction

By Larry Malerba, DO, DHt – Aside from the obvious fact that modern medicine has devolved into an industry that markets products to medical “consumers,” there are a number of more basic problems that must be addressed if the system is ever to be healed. Since those medical products tend to create more sickness than health, it virtually guarantees an […]

The Bioenergetic Basis of Illness (Part I)

The Bioenergetic Basis of Illness (Part I)

By Larry Malerba, DO, DHt – Mainstream medicine tends to balk at the suggestion that there may be subtler energetic forces at play in disease processes, as if this notion was some sort of science fiction fantasy. However, if the laws of physics determine all chemical and, therefore, all biological processes, then the answers that we seek in the quest […]

What Is the Green Medicine Revolution? (Part I)

What Is the Green Medicine Revolution? (Part I)

By Larry Malerba, DO – Everywhere we hear the call for the greening of American culture, and many are coming to understand that the same is needed for our medical culture. The complex issues surrounding the human experience of illness, disease, death, recovery, health and cure are too diverse and multifactorial to be confined to the limited parameters that orthodox […]

Let’s Talk About Real Health Care Reform

Let’s Talk About Real Health Care Reform

by Dr. Larry Malerba The system is badly broken and in need of repair: While universal health coverage for all Americans regardless of age, infirmity, or economic status would be a critical step in the right direction, it would still only provide access to the same flawed and dangerous practices that make medical care the third leading cause of death […]

About SS&H

Spirit, Science, & Healing is a forum for cutting edge ideas regarding holistic health and green healing.
