A Case of Abdominal Pain

December 20, 2018

I wrote Healing The Power in You;  Tapping into Courage, Hope, and Resilience  because this information has changed my life, and in fact has saved my life.  I share these cases with you because I hope it can help you too or help someone you love.   I share with you excerpts from the second chapter; the story of a Marine presenting to an Emergency room with abdominal pain and vomiting.   On the next blog, I will include an expert from a professional young man who is a serious marathon runner who came to my office because of persistent tendonitis.    A Case of Abdominal Pain  We look for medicine to be an orderly field of knowledge and procedure. But it is not. . . . There is science in what we do, yes, but also habit, intuition, and sometimes plain old guessing. – Atul Gawande, MD  In the mid 1980s, before I began studying alternative methods, I worked as an emergency physician in the Boston area. In the ER, there was only one physician in charge at a time. When my shift started at 3:00 p.m., I assumed responsibility for the patients, taking over from the physician who…

FOOD ~ Adopting “The Right Stuff”

December 20, 2017

As an adoptee, it seems I’m always trying to improve myself. Longtime fitness buff- skier, hiker, former marathon runner, I thought I was doing fine in the food department. Maybe not everything right, but OK. When I took a weekend course in Culinary Healing from Dr. Joalie Davie, I learned how to do much better. Eating ones way to better health involved much more than I’d imagined. Shopping wisely, learning about the differences in nutritional value of foods that looked but aren’t alike and using spices and herbs to heal…these were just a few bonuses of the culinary weekend.

The Santa Fe New Mexican profiles Dr. Joalie Davie:

December 1, 2017

When Santa Feans mention enrolling in a tapping class, they may not be talking about dance lessons. Instead, the class probably involves EFT — or emotional freedom technique, informally called tapping. EFT is among several alternative medical treatments offered by Dr. Joalie Davie. Davie, a former emergency physician, is a Santa Fe practitioner who supplements her Western medical training with alternative therapies. “If you had told me 20 years ago that I’d be practicing alternative medicine — from ancient Eastern techniques to innovative, new ones, I would have said, ‘Absolutely not. This is quackery.’ But I have been convinced differently — reading many scientific studies and witnessing the success of alternative medicine — for myself and my patients,” she said. After more than three decades practicing conventional Western medicine and caring for more than 30,000 patients, Davie continued her quest to find the best possible ways to help her patients….Continue reading

Dr. Joalie Davie’s talk at her 40th Harvard College reunion this fall:

October 20, 2015

I am a Boston, Massachusetts, educated and trained physician. Today, I devote my practice to mind-body medicine—at Health from Within, a practice I founded in Santa Fe New Mexico five years ago. If you had told me twenty years ago that I would be practicing alternative medicine, I would have thought that was the most preposterous idea and replied that I believed any alternative therapy was quackery. My years-long transformation began in 1996 with a mind-bending reaction to a simple comment made by Dr. Harley Haynes, who at the time was Chief of Dermatology at the Brigham & Women’s Hospital.  Harley’s comment was a response to a question on how he treated recalcitrant warts.  He said that if the condition worsened despite his best efforts over six or more months, he sent patients to “the psychologist down the street, and they were better in three months.”  He then mentioned several studies  published in the 70s  by Hackett and others where patients who had failed medical therapy for years were cured of their warts within three months of seeing a psychologist. How could that be?  Here it was—scientific proof that unconventional therapy worked better than conventional medicine alone!   Yet it was never…

Water Under The Bridge

June 24, 2014

By Joalie Davie, M.D., Harvard University Class of 1974 WATER UNDER THE BRIDGE In the forty years since we graduated from Harvard, I suspect all of us have undergone many changes—as have our fields and professions.  Scientific and technological advances have changed our lives.  But the  traditional practice of medicine, as I first learned it at Harvard and The University of Massachusetts Medical School, has remained almost constant.  We have new tools, but the basic philosophy and treatment regimens are the same as they have been for decades. I and my fellow students were taught to treat diseases and their symptoms at the physical level.  We excelled at diagnosis and followed prescribed treatments aimed at eliminating the physical manifestations of the problems with drugs, surgery or other invasive procedures. But as the water flowed under the bridge, I failed to recognize that in many cases, traditional medicine had missed the boat.  As an emergency physician, I treated patients, often saving their lives, only to see them return with progression of their disease a few months or years later.  Yes, they received expert medical treatment for their diagnoses, but the root of their problems remained.  I was treating, not healing.  So…
