Websites I Love with Carla Wrenn

by Carla Wrenn
Websites I love… Well there are a lot. So I had to narrow it down to just a few. These are sites by some of my ‘hero’ practitioners, the ones that inspire me. Click the links below, hopefully you will learn something and love them too.

Dr Mark Hyman – I loved meeting Mark in Atlanta Georgia at my Institute of Functional Medicine training in 2015. What an inspiration he is, you can read all about why on his site www.drhyman.com or on his numerous Ted Talks and Podcasts. I particularly like this blog post http://drhyman.com/blog/2015/08/07/5-strategies-to-prevent-and-treat-cancer/

Dr Jeffrey Bland – I can’t wait to have a total fan girl moment with Dr Bland in just a few weeks at The 2017 International Congress on Natural Medicine, we are sharing dinner together!! Since reading his book ‘The Disease Delusion’ I have loved his work. I have also just discovered his podcasts Functional Medicine Updates I encourage you to click over and read more www.jeffreybland.com Watch this space for my posts on meeting him and maybe a Selfie or two!

Here are some of my favorite quotes from Dr Bland:

“We can now start to see the future of health care and medicine more clearly. We are moving from a medicine for the average to a medicine for the individual. We are starting to recognize that lifestyle, diet and environmental factors influence how our genes are expressed into our health and disease patterns”

“We need to listen to the patient’s story and develop a response to it. The approach to complex syndromes may be much more profound than just trying to pound a round peg into a square hole to get a singular diagnosis.”

Dr Lise Alschuler – I met Lise in Melbourne 2016 and am an avid user of her training, books, charts, strategies and words of wisdom with my patients. If you have heard me speak professionally you have no doubt heard me mention Lise and her amazing work as a Naturopath in Integrative Oncology. Check her and her podcasts out at www.drlise.net

Here’s a wise word from Lise:

“As a naturopathic oncologist and cancer survivor myself I know the power of natural therapies to bring health and healing to people diagnosed with cancer. The safe and effective use of natural therapies improves results from conventional treatments, maximizes patients’ health after treatment and reduces ​risk of cancer recurrence.”

“While cancer rears its ugly head in far too many people’s lives, with some reluctance, I do grant it respect. For people affected by cancer, in spite of legitimate terror, this disease can stoke a smoldering ember of vitality into a roaring fire of hope, love and courage. These are the gifts of cancer and, ultimately, forge our triumph over it.”
