Representative Patrick Kennedy has personally asked me to be his guest at the One Mind For Research Conference in Boston this month. This invitation only research conference is comprised of a group of 250 scientists, doctors and patient advocates. I feel honored to be chosen to attend the three days of meetings which launch a ten year project to solve the mysteries related to treaments for the brain. My own family as well as the families of almost every patient I have treated are directly impacted by brain related disorders including depression, bi-polar, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, drug and alcohol addiction as well as the related conditions such as compulsive overeating, migraine headaches, fatigue, ADD and ADHD. Please take the time to read more about this event at: www.1mind4research.org This is no ordinary medical conference; the keynote speaker is the Vice President of the United States, Joe Biden. Planning committee members and speakers include Steven Hyman, MD, Provost of Harvard University, the Director of the National Institutes of Health, the Director of National Institutes of Mental Health, the Commissioner of the FDA, Nobel Laureates and mental health patient advocates including the actors Martin Sheen, Glenn Close and the Kennedy family. Additional speakers include the Chairs of Neuroscience and Psychiatry from every major university and brain research lab in our nation, including MIT, Yale, Georgetown, Johns Hopkins, the Salk Institute, Stanford, Columbia, UCLA, UCSF and the University of Pennsylvania. It is a collection of the best and brightest in the field of brain research presenting a comprehensive plan for uniting this area of medicine. I have a seat at the conference to represent natural medicine. Many of you have experienced my work, either through lab testing for brain chemistry imbalances or through correcting adrenal hormones. If you have a story to tell about natural health programs benefiting brain related conditions please follow this link: www.box.net/shared/j83rbcdl5u and email to my office so that we can document your experience and you can contribute to this national effort to help those suffering from brain and stress related conditions.
