JUNE 10th, 2011 @ 4PM EST on FOX

Announcement for airing of Dr. Pina on “The Dr. Oz Show" was made today.

“I want you to write down what we are talking about today, you have a world expert teaching us, “ said Dr. Oz to a full studio audience, referring to Dr. LoGiudice.

The medical research team at the Dr. Oz show chose Dr. Pina LoGiudice, naturopathic physician and acupuncturist, for her expertise in natural medicine.

NY Licensing Effort Go Fund Me Support Page

4.27.2017

A letter from Dr. Peter Bongiorno:


Hi family and friends of Inner Source Health,

As you know, naturopathic doctors are not yet licensed in New York State even thought 21 states have naturopathic physicians licensed.

As president of the New York Association of Naturopathic Physician (NYANP),I have been working hard to move this through in Albany, but have had resistance from the conventional medical doctors and legislators that are influenced by them for they want to hold down the holistic and natural medicine movement and keep it away from the public.

Nevertheless, we’ve had some interesting events unfold recently:

- In December of 2016, Massachusetts was licensed, which was a big political win for naturopathic medicine over conventional care which tried to stop this

- at same time, a new legislative sponsor, Assemblyman Felix Ortiz, took the helm for us in Albany. Assemblyman Ortiz was the man who created the hands free car cell-phone bill which passed in New York. This bill also went nationwide and as a result, he has become a national figure with political influence. He is a strong supporter of naturopathic medicine, and unlike a lot of politicians, he cares about passing bills he believes in, not ones that are politically helpful for his career or to cater to special interests.

- in late 2016, we saw the indictment and imprisonment of the corrupt leaders both the NY State Senate and the House (Senator Skelos and Assemblyman Silver, respectively)

All three of these events together have created a new political climate that I believe can help the naturopathic medicine licensing move forward.To take advantage of this situation, we need to work with some lobbyists and other state government influencers right now.

The NYANP set up a GoFundMe campaign, and basically, we need to raise about $50,000 for legislative education and lobbyist work to help make this happen. We have identified key lobbyists with excellent contacts that can help, but we need the money pay them for their services.


So, I am writing today because I need your help with three things:


1 - please support the NYANP by going to the link below and to learn more through the video link:

https://www.gofundme.com/license-ny-naturopathic-docs

and donate whatever you can: $5, $20, $100, $500…. whatever you can do would be amazing. 100% of the money goes to this effort.


2 - please send a personal note to your friends / family and on social media, email, newsletters, etc… so we can get the word out. You can forward this email.


3 - If you know anyone that you think I should talk with who is influential or you believe would be interested in helping this movement, please make the connection or send me the contact info.



We are unveiling this campaign officially Thursday, April 27 at noon.


It is a David and Goliath Story that I know we can win, but we need your support too.


If you believe in naturopathic medicine , then please help naturopathic medicine get licensed in New York. Check out the video here:

much love and great appreciation,

Telomere Length and Depression

2-5-2017

Telomeres are basically little caps at the end of your genetic material – sort of like the little covers (called aglets) on your sneaker laces. When the aglet breaks, your shoe string will fray into broken strands. Similarly, when a telomere breaks, your genetic material can start to fray and be subject to getting damaged, which can lead to mental conditions like depression and anxiety....
