8Greens Cookbook: Eastern Medicine Warning Signs. My focus on health started when I was diagnosed with cancer in 2000. I got a really bad bone infection after my tumor removal and couldn't receive radio- or chemotherapy. I researched and tried dozens of different non-traditional approaches, many good, some neutral and some very concerning. I write about this, and the places I do think do it right, in my book, but my summary warning signs that a center or person is not someone to deal with are 1.) If they name-drop celebrities...find somewhere else 2.) If they instill fear in you that if you do not do X then Y will happen...find somewhere else 3.) If there is a huge bouquet of fresh flowers in the waiting room...find somewhere else.
The photograph in this post was taken by my husband on our honeymoon in Bhutan, a country that gets its way of living so right. It measures Gross National Happiness, not GDP, we can all learn from that.
