Can You Wait 5 Minutes? A Guide to Quit Smoking

You didn’t become addicted to cigarettes overnight, and in my personal experience, it is best not to try to quit overnight.

In this article I hope to provide those who want to quit smoking with a method that I used to quit. I found that breaking up this big job into a bunch of little ones made it much easier to do. It worked for me, and after ten years, I would go so far as to say that the process has been permanent.

AOM Day Goodwill Message, Oct. 24, 2009

AOM Day

To my good friends of the AOM profession in Pakistan,

A Pakistani acupuncturist recently confided in me how frustrating it is that there are untrained and illegitimate “physicians” practicing acupuncture in Pakistan.

I believe that many MDs in the US have just as much of a problem with doctors of Chinese medicine.

Over the past few years, I have been presenting continuing medical education (CME) lectures to MDs, nurses, and allied health care providers. Hospitals regularly provide lunchtime lectures for their doctors. I was on a circuit providing those lectures.

I had hoped to present the benefits of integrating drugs and Chinese herbal medicines which is my own practice focus. I presented numerous Chinese research studies that demonstrated how therapeutic outcomes improved, drug dosages could be lowered and side effects could be averted.
