DNA Does Not Have to Be Your Destiny!

by Robert Schneider, MD

The cutting edge of modern medicine is coming to the place where mind meets body; where mind meets DNA; where we have control over DNA; where we can modify effects of our genes from the inside out. And this development of modern medicine much parallels the science of meditation and its description and technologies for developing the mind/body connection.

The latest research in modern medical sciences says your DNA is not your destiny. The old paradigm––that your genetic code was fixed, has been superseded. New scientific discoveries show that your lifestyle choices–– what you think, and how you […]

The Antidote to “Super-Doctor Syndrome”

By Lorenz Iannarone MD
“Super Doctor Syndrome” refers to a common condition afflicting a large percentage of physicians and other healthcare providers. Left untreated, it is known to lead to burnout. Dr. Iannorone’s biographical essay provides a classic example.

Do you know how “Storm Chasers” in Oklahoma get pumped just by getting into their high-tech machines and going out in search of tornadoes? Or how big game hunters get a rush of adrenaline in seeking “the big kill?” Sometimes I wonder if I just sought out stress for the same rush. People tell me that I’m at my best in a stressful […]

Calculating Burnout

What is the cost of physician burnout? Now hospitals and practices can take a hard look at the financial impact by using an online physician burnout calculator created by the American Medical Association (AMA).

Data shows that it costs between $500,000 and $1 million to replace an existing physician. According to Christine Sinsky, MD, FACP, vice president of professional satisfaction at the American Medical Association (AMA) and practicing general internist, “This is a conservative figure. It doesn’t include many, many other sources of financial costs to burnout.”

In addition to quitting their jobs, physicians may respond to burnout by cutting back to […]

AMI Medical Conference Discusses How Meditation Combats Physician Burnout and Helps Alter Our Genetic Code for Health and Well Being

How meditation can alter our genetic code to provide good health and wellness is among the topics discussed at The American Meditation Institute’s annual CME conference. If there’s one mental practice that has stood the test of time and rigorous laboratory testing, it’s meditation. In an article published in the Psychoneuroendocrinology journal, a 2014 clinical study reports that mindfulness meditation training can lead to epigenetic alterations of the genome. These changes down-regulate genes previously implicated in inflammation and accelerate cortisol recovery time from social stress. “To the best of our knowledge, this is the first paper that […]
