Question #29: Is there an algorithm for the next step of your life or is your match already out there?

Question #28: Is poverty, or wealth, in the eye of the beholder?

I started as an undergraduate student in a PharmD program.  Yes, I was studying to become a pharmacist.  Hindsight is 20/20 and so I realize now that I probably couldn’t have maintained the career choice without some endorsement from the AMA or other powerful organization that healthcare teams are required to prescribe whole foods as…

Question #8: What does a macrobiotic vegan eat during the Super Bowl (or the Olympics)?

This post isn’t going to follow my prior style of story-telling.  I just wanted to share what I made for the Super Bowl (with all credit due to “macro mom”).  I’m not sure if it has an official name so I’m going with tofu miso spread. T minus 3 days til game day: 1) Cut…

Question #5 revisited: Why does our society allow one to be tortured enough by “labels” to take their own life?

by • February 3, 2014 • 0 Comments

I recently wrote about the concept of “labels”.  It seems beyond coincidental that just a couple of weeks later I heard word from my mother, a school nurse, that a student in the district had taken his own life after much time struggling with bullying.  Now, unfortunately, we hear these stories all the more frequently…

Question #7: Is the tire half flat or half full?

It’s a beautiful morning and I wake up, with my dogs cuddling me on either side, to the sound of my mother’s voice, “You better get up and get ready to head back home. I have tea, brown rice and greens waiting for you downstairs”. No I’m not 12 years old (though my height might…

Question #6: How will you use your inquisitive nature, in this moment, to propel the evolution of humanity to a healthier place?

by • January 22, 2014 • 2 Comments

The act of asking for information, or the process of inquiry, is not restricted to those pursuing higher education.  It is basic human nature.  In fact, it really is nature.

Question #5: What significance do “labels” carry?

by • January 21, 2014 • 1 Comment

In all honesty, the reality TV drama helped motivate me to get a blog going, however, it was an interest I had for a while prior. I’ve wanted to write about the struggles of balancing my sometimes “hippie-ish” lifestyle with my firey Italian-Puerto Rican Jersey girl personality and academic commitment to evidence based medicine all…

Question #4: In regards to making lifestyle changes, how does a future outcome compare, in significance, to the present moment?

by • January 18, 2014 • 2 Comments

The allopathic medical student that I am was taught to follow evidence-based algorithms for unveiling clinical mysteries.  Considering that implies we are also taught numerous different diseases to fit those protocols, the hypochondriac that med school brought out in me, had a few health scares recently.  Despite knowing the epidemiology of terminal diagnoses in my…

Question #3: Does the definition of disease depend on the definition of health?

by • January 14, 2014 • 3 Comments

Question #3: Does the definition of disease depend on the definition of health? For my first blog post directly related to the scientific process, I decided to start with the most official scholarly search engine, Google. Yes, I know I’m being sarcastic, however, you’d be surprised how despite many lectures on the technical tools available…

Question #2: Is reality TV all that bad?

by • January 14, 2014 • 2 Comments

So I’m sitting here, watching reality TV with my roommate yet another night as an attempt to give our brains a break after a hard day of work and I get inspired… by one of the seemingly least inspirational shows I’ve seen.  Well, let me back up.  I mentioned work. What do I do for work that…
