An 18 year-old young man with autism walked into my office yesterday, checked out my altar replete with seeds and crystals and candle burning, and immediately told his parents: We're safe here.
I don't do my work to impress so-called important people. I do it for people like him, and for all of these young spiritual teachers that I have the privilege of treating. This young man knows that it doesn't matter that I am the doctor and he is the patient. We are part of the same tribe of healers.
Moments like that make everything I do 100% worthwhile. ❤️

Are cell phones the new tobacco? We have not forced safety research and there is little regulation, even though the science so far is concerning. Detaching from phones is a hard one for all of us. At a minimum, consider using headsets or speaker phone instead of holding the phone to your head, and putting it in airplane mode while you're sleeping.
One of the most basic gifts of childhood--running around and moving--has been taken away--and kids are paying for it with their brains and their bodies. Children with ADHD are losing the most. "Physical activity is clearly a high, high-yield investment for all kids, but especially those attentive or hyperactive. This brand of research is still published and written about as though it were a novel finding, in part because exercise programs for kids remain underfunded and underprioritized in many school curricula, even though exercise is clearly integral to maximizing the utility of time spent in class."
