Case Report: Lymphoma Treatment with Pacific Yew and Pokeroot

Michael Friedman, N.D.

The patient is a fifty-four-year old Caucasian female who has suffered from nineteen different pathologies.

Migraines And Mood Disorders: Nutritional And Dietary Intervention Based On Laboratory Testing

Cass Nelson-Dooley, MS; Stephanie Kaplan, ND; J. Alexander Bralley, PhD

Current conventional treatments for migraine head- ache, depression, and mood disorders often fail to address the underlying cause(s) of these conditions and therefore usually require long-term medication without hope for cure or, in many cases, adequate symptom relief.
