Redefining Love in Midlife

Kalpana (Rose) Kumar, M.D.


It seems natural to write an article on love in February as we have an opportunity to reflect on this topic this month. We need to begin understanding the difference between healthy and unhealthy love. Healthy love does not involve compromise. We maintain our sovereignty and truth when we are in a relationship that is based on healthy love. Many of us have been conditioned to compromise ourselves in the name of love. We were taught to subdue our inner wisdom which warns us when we compromise our needs in relationships. It is not uncommon for us to put aside our inner longings and behave in ways that are expected of us by society. A relationship that is based on a dynamic like this is unhealthy. Healthy love always coexists with our truth. Compromising our truth is unhealthy. It results in codependency.

Thoughts on Depression

Stephanie Delmore, MA, LPC


Through my years of clinical practice, my understanding of depression has evolved. The symptoms of depression can look very different in different people, and the contributing factors or "causes" are varied as well. In some people depression looks like someone who cannot get out of bed or is tearful most of the day. In others, depression presents in that the person appears unusually irritable or quick to anger. My experience is that depression most often comes from one of three factors: a physiological/hormonal imbalance; a response to a specific life event; or negative/dysfunctional thought patterns.

  February 19, 2013 is the Ommani Center's 12th Anniversary!

Anniversary Hearts

The Ommani Center was born from an intention to create a health care model whose context for health is deeper than just the physical. How one lives and relates to life has a significant influence on one's health.  Inclusive of modern technological advances and high standard-of-care traditional medicine, we are an integrative health care model that is sustainable, cost effective and promotes real health care.  We hold this vision of Ommani sacred as we continue to facilitate true health and meaning for our patients and the world. 


Our Celebration includes our sincere and heartfelt appreciation to all of you who are a part of our community. 


Thank you for your dedicated and faithful support.
