The way forward through the mess Earlier this week I attended a meeting of the great and the good, held in the  House of Lords in the UK’s Parliament and chaired by Lord Andrew Stone and my good pal Dr. Jude Currivan. In the midst of those hallowed corridors, packed with likenesses of powerful prime […]

I was watching the BBC news the other day, which featured a man in his nineties, who’d just written his second novel 50 years after the first one. Naturally, the BBC presenters were interested in why he felt compelled, all these years later, to write again. The author had set the book in 1940 in […]

Seeing clearly now Ask most doctors why people develop eye diseases like glaucoma, cataracts and macular degeneration, and they’ll blame it on the fact that eyes just inevitably wear out. Two of those conditions—macular degeneration and cataracts—even have ‘age’ attached to a particular version of them, as in ‘age-related cataracts’ and ‘age-related macular degeneration’ (AMD). […]

Lead like a lady As a woman myself, I am naturally happy to see more women running for high office, but I have to say that I have been hugely dismayed the latest female candidates like Hillary Clinton and Theresa May for one simple reason:  they aren’t acting like women in the highest sense of […]

It’s time to stop rewarding the bad  The result of the latest British election, which ended up with a hung Parliament, and no clear majority, is a neat metaphor for why our current system is collapsing, and a clear direction about what needs to replace it. In case you don’t follow British politics, the Conservative […]

Mental starvation Entire industries in modern medicine—psychiatry, the drug industry, even many therapeutic arms of psychology—are predicated on the idea that chronic, crippling stress, anxiety and a number of other forms of so-called mental illness are incredibly tough nuts to crack, requiring years of strong medication that, at best, can only control symptoms. In fact, […]

How to stop growing terrorists What on earth possesses someone to become a suicide bomber or a terrorist? For years I’ve been mystified about the thought process of, say, a Palestinian like Hanifah, beautiful and intelligent, a woman with a law degree, a one-year-old daughter and everything to live for, when she walks into the […]

In 1992, I got held up in a store robbery.  I was with my daughter, Caitlin, then age 3, and we were in a north London health store, of all places.  The health store had a little café in the back, where we’d often take time from a shopping trip to go to have a […]

A big mental adjustment Despite being the world’s most popular form of alternative treatment, chiropractic has lately had a bad press, particularly in the UK. It began when Simon Singh, the self-appointed attack dog on all things alternative, decided to promote his book Trick or Treatment: Alternative Medicine on Trial by writing an article in […]

Broadcast journalism has landed many low blows before when it comes to alternative views about medicine. I was eight months pregnant with our first child when we launched WDDTY, and a few moments before I was due to have a live debate with a media doctor, he leaned over and murmured, sotto voce: ‘Did you […]
