REFLECTIONS ON ADDICTIVE DRUGS, SOCIAL SYMBIOSIS AND RECOVERY

Just yesterday, I was contacted by a drug treatment center called Steps to Recovery.  Amy, one of their staff writers, had written an interesting and informative article about the prevalence of Adderall abuse and addiction amongst college students seeking to improve their mental, cognitive and athletic performance levels.  Adderall, it turns out, is a psychoactive […]

GREEK MEDICINE AND CLIMATE CHANGE

On October 25th of this year, I saw, right here in Bucharest Romania, and extreme weather event that I never thought I would ever see.  For two days straight, we were snowed in by a huge blizzard.  My landlady here told me that she had been listening to the news, and that the blizzard came […]

Reflections on the Sorry State of America’s Healthcare System

Like many progressive people in the USA, I was extremely disappointed in the weak, watered down healthcare reforms that were passed by congress during this past year.  Even though it could be argued that the healthcare reform bill that was passed was a major step in ending the worst abuses of the private, for-profit health […]

GETTING THROUGH THE HOLIDAYS WITH HERBS

Christmas time is here, by golly, disapproval would be folly, Deck the halls with boughs of holly, fill the cup and don’t say when! So opens a satirical song on Christmas by Tom Lehrer.  Its tongue in cheek sarcasm captures the way many of us feel about the holidays:  It’s nice to be joyful and […]
