Medical Marijuana: The Pros and Cons

By: Larry Malerba, DO, DHt – I want to review some of the pros and cons, as I see them, of marijuana use and abuse.

Of Dogs, Dreams, Death and Dying

by Larry Malerba, DO – I’m pretty confident that the longevity of our beloved family German Shepherd was due to a lifetime of homeopathic health care. Early on, she had shown signs of being a little skittish but, thankfully, we found that an occasional dose of homeopathic Gelsemium always worked to set her straight no matter what the problem seemed to […]

Can Grief Cause Chronic Illness?

Can Grief Cause Chronic  Illness?

By Larry Malerba, DO, DHt – Aside from the many self-inflicted and medically induced causes of illness such as smoking, poor nutrition, alcohol and drug abuse, pharmaceutical side effects, allopathic suppression, and surgeries gone awry, perhaps the most common “natural” cause of chronic illness is unresolved grief.

The Medicalization of Grief

The Medicalization of Grief

by Amy Cavanaugh I love going to Goodwill to buy books. I notice that there are always a good number of books on wellness and spirituality, and I never know if the person who donated the book did so because they had healed themselves by reading it or merely gave up. Either way, it has been a goldmine for me, […]
