I am a board-certified physician of Internal Medicine in practice in the South Suburbs of Chicago. I am also a Pastor's wife, and mother of four.
My approach to medicine is to recognize that we are body, mind and spirit--and these aspects of our being interact and influence each other. My first book, Spiritual Secrets to Weight Loss, examines this truth. It is a 50-day journey which focuses on how our spiritual lives influence our physical lives, including weight loss and healthy living.
My third book, Spiritual Secrets to a Healthy Heart, is devoted to lowering the risk for heart disease, which is the number one killer of women in the U.S. It examines the role of lifestyle (i.e., nutrition, exercise, smoking) but also looks at the way our mental, spiritual and emotional health impact the condition of our hearts.
