The Classical Medicine Journal serves as a compiler of relevant information in the realm of healthy living, alternative medicine, homeopathy, and information on oversights of the FDA, as well as new technologies developed in the world of western medicine. The idea is to strike a balance between new medicinal technologies and alternative healing to find the treatment or diagnostic measure that you need most. I should know. I’ve split my life between both ancient and modern medicine.
I spent the first half of my career on a one-way street to medical stardom. I was at the top of my class at the Tufts University School of Medicine and took a top-tier residency in Boston. I studied primary care, which means I know a little bit about a lot of things, and I have the professional skills to sniff out medical B.S. when I see it. However, after working in the field for 20 years, I decided to take a detour.
I needed a change of pace. The sterility of the hospital was wearing me down, and I knew that some of the treatments I was being pushed to recommend weren’t what was best for the patient. So, I took a leave of absence and enrolled in a holistic health coach program and an alternative medicine certification. It took around a year for these courses to really set in, but once they did, I was never the same.
I’m back at my job as a primary care physician, but I now have the resources and knowledge base to recommend alternative treatments when I don’t think western medicine is the correct path forward for an individual. I’m transferring that knowledge into this site, the Classical Medicine Journal. I want this to be a landing page for everyone curious about treatment options available, what’s new in the realm of alternative medicine, and what technologies are fusing modern and alternative practice.
I want to stress the fact that this site is provided for reference and/or educational purposes only and should not be a substitute for professional health care. While I do my best to bring you the most recent healthcare developments, I do not want this site to be relied on for treating or diagnosing symptoms, conditions, and/or illnesses.
