Anxiety & Stresses of Modern Life 
Getting Older, Getting Better
I was rollerblading a few months ago and though I was dutifully wearing my helmet, I was taken aback by a white wisp of hair flying across my cheek. Whose hair could that possibly be!? The idea of salt & pepper has a certain appeal to me, but when the salt takes over, I was incredulous! I am happily heading toward 60, but keep saying, how can it be? I was just 25! 

And our patients are getting older too. Some people really resist this idea of growing older, but honestly, what's the alternative!? So much is determined by our genes. And we influence how our genes play out by living as healthy a lifestyle as possible and by using gentle, natural medicines when needed, like homeopathy. 
Those who have studied with us, come back for a clinical class this year where we will turn our focus to our older patients. And for all of us, may we be blessed with long healthy, productive lives, with at least a modicum of grace, opportunities for new experiences and hopefully a little bit of fun thrown in there, too!

Love & light,

Getting Older Getting Better:
Healthy aging with homeopathic and natural medicines
By Amy Rothenberg ND
Getting Older  
I will never forget the first time I treated an older patient. I was a mere 26 years old, fresh out of naturopathic medical school, and before me sat a woman of 98 with long, flowing white hair and bright eyes that lit up her face. The fine wrinkles around her mouth broke into an easy smile when I walked into the room. Perhaps she was amused at how young they were letting people practice medicine, and a woman to boot!

She shared her story of deep and overpowering sleepiness ever since she'd had cataract surgery four months earlier. Falling asleep frequently might not seem to be a real complaint in someone of this age, but for this patient, it was. Her 80-year-old daughter, who had brought her in to see me, confirmed that her mother had never been like this before the surgery. As I sat in awe of these two older women and the grace, gentleness, and good humor with which they related to one another and the world, I had found yet another reason to love my job.
