A White Man's Thoughts on What Is Going On
The title says it all, my friends. Just listen and pass it on to someone you know who needs to hear it. If you're not sure who that is, it's anyone you know who currently lives in America, especially if they aren't sure what to make of what's going on right now.

An Episode That Has Nothing To Do With The Current Situation
I take a step back here and talk about something that has nothing to do with what is currently going on in America.

Coronavirus XIV with Dr. Neil Morris
In this episode, we have an incredible interview with Dr. Neil Morris amongst some record-setting rocky audio quality. Nevertheless, Dr. Morris brings the heat in this one and talks about a ton of different things regarding Covid-19 and how naturopathic medicine can help, including Ozone therapy. I hope you learn a ton in this episode as I did. If you'd like to keep up with Dr. Morris, check out his Facebook page and Instagram.

Let’s give a warm welcome to Dr. Carleigh as the first physician to ever be a guest on this podcast. As a licensed naturopathic physician, she shares her experience so far with Covid-19. In this episode she speaks to how NDs and NMDs can contribute to the fight against the Coronavirus and what the AANP is doing to offering a solution during this crisis. We also discuss how people should approach natural treatment and prevention for Covid-19 as well as the irony of how the foundations of health play such a large role in an era when technology is king. If you'd like to keep up with her, here is Dr. Carleigh Golightly's website and Instagram.

Coronavirus VIII- A Quick Reminder
This is a straight forward message: what you're doing matters, we are making a difference with social distancing, its too soon to say when this will be over and its also too soon/too important to give in.

Coronavirus V
I'm back!  After taking a few days to myself to recover from the 2nd hardest quarter in my years of medical education, I took some time to think about how to go forward with this podcast. Also, I spent a lot of time reading through the information that has come out since the last time we talked. Here's what I discuss today: Dr. Courtney Cronin's article on Covid-19 CovidActNow Joe Rogan's Episode Clip about what's going on at the top President Trump's Approving Washington's Disaster Relief Package President Trumps Press Conference from this evening Remember, we are all in this together and you have more control over your risk than you think. Stay well my friends.

Coronavirus IV
In the longest episode to date, I cover a ton of topics about the Coronavirus both public health and otherwise. There are several things going on at a local level here in Seattle as well as on a national and global scale. After discussing them, I provide what seems to be the only three ways this pandemic ends in America, and even speak to some of the articles being published saying we are overplaying this thing. *This will be edited to include links and references later this week. I took 5 finals between yesterday and today and have 2 more tomorrow and 1 Friday so I didn't have the time to get them all written up without delaying the episode.

Until then, let's defer to the experts and follow what we are being asked to do to help out our neighbors so we can get through this thing together.

Coronavirus I
This is the first episode of at least a few on the Coronavirus. As a naturopathic medical student (for the second time) as well as someone with a Bachelor's degree in community and public health, and living half a mile from Kirkland, WA I feel like I have something to offer.

Here is the article I referenced in the episode: Coronavirus: Why You Must Act Now

Why I Wish Doctors Would Stop Telling People They Can Be Healthy
There is a growing trend, especially in the naturopathic and holistic health communities to make promises on social media regarding people's health outcomes. It's well-meaning, but it also hurts people. In this episode, I talk about why we have to be diligent with our words and not over-promise something we can't deliver to patients.

What Actually Makes Naturopathic Doctors Different
Natural Medicine isn’t what makes NDs different from MDs. It isn’t prescription drugs, diagnostic, or even the additional treatment tools we learn about. Find out in this episode the actual difference between a naturopathic doctor and a conventional one.

What Makes Naturopathic Medicine Special
With academic stuff out of the way, we dive into what naturopathic medicine means for the American population, what made me go into it vs. conventional medical school, and what is unique about it. I talk specifically about why naturopathic medicine is the answer that so many are searching for in America right now, whether or not they know it. Enjoy!

The Therapeutic Order
This is part II of what we talked about in the last episode. The therapetic order is the main guidelines that aid naturopathic physicians in the best way to treat their patients with whatever is causing them harm and disease.

Go, Do
It is December. Christmas is coming and after that, all of the expectations and "new" years resolutions.  You either know what you're going after or you don't. Your message is either clear or it's not.  If it's not, take time in December to stop doing, and start looking. Clarity is everything when you are putting your stuff out there. If your message is clear or your goals are defined, don't wait until January. December gets lonely and could use a boost from your passion.

My Reaction To Attending an Alcoholics Anonymous Meeting
I got the chance to attend an alcoholics anonymous meeting last week and I came out of it full emotions. I was so so proud of the people there and at the same time discouraged for most of the rest of us. Part of the reason America has such a mental health crisis is because of our judgement. I'm all about discipline and responsibility, but that's a very different thing that judging someone who is already struggling. I'm guilty of it too and I want to do what I can to stop it so more people can get help. I feel like this episode may rub some feathers, and I'm cool with that. :)

Do I Regret Not Going To Conventional Medical School?
I get this question pretty frequently. In this episode I break down the mixed answer and why I'm happy with my training choice of naturopathic medicine.

Apologies, why I’m really doing this, and what my day looks like.
