Robin Williams: Another Victim of Excess Adrenaline

It is very frustrating to know that there are thousands of people working in Hollywood who are suffering with problems related to excess adrenaline. This is a hormone that doctors, including psychiatrists, never talk about. Creative people are the one's with the most adrenaline. They suffer for years with adrenaline-induced depression, anxiety, insomnia, alcoholism, drug addiction, [...]

“Adrenaline Dominance”

I am pleased to be able to report that my latest book has just been released. It is appropriately named "Adrenaline Dominance", and it should be of interest to many of the readers of my blogs.

Primary Care Doctors: An Endangered Species

At dinner tonight, my wife asked me how I saw the future of medicine. Her concern surrounds the anticipated doctor shortage brought on by a combination of a growing population along with an increased  disenchantment felt by doctors. The prospect of doctors opting out of primary care is one of the anticipated results caused by [...]

“Curing” Cancer With Statistics

I was listening to an ad on television paid for by the American Cancer Society (ACS). In an obvious attempt to solicit funds and give viewers the idea that the ACS is actually doing something, they announced that 50% of people with cancer have been cured. Please keep in mind that the ACS supports traditional [...]
