Dr. Tieraona Low Dog is one of the country’s most knowledgeable experts on integrative medicine. As Director of Fellowship for Dr. Andrew Weill’s Integrative Medicine Center at the University of Arizona, she helps other doctors learn how to combine conventional medicine with alternative and holistic approaches. How did she become interested in this unusual approach to healing? Dr. Low Dog shares her own story with us.
She also shows us how to make smart choices every day so that ordinary activities like eating dinner, meeting a friend or heading off to work can contribute to our health instead of tearing it down. What supplements are really helpful and which drugs may create nutritional deficiencies? How can you get enough sleep? Does loneliness pose a health hazard? Dr. Low Dog brings you the practical information you need on how to arrange your life so that it is your best medicine.
