Dangers of Adaptation and Complacency

Kalpana (Rose) Kumar, M.D.


Once we are in midlife, we are better able to use the wisdom of our life experiences to identify healthy and unhealthy patterns of behavior.  One of these patterns is adaptation.  Adaptation is a process that is common to all of us on planet Earth.  It is necessary for our survival, but is dysfunctional when we adapt to the point of complacency.  When we are young, we adapt to our environment to fit in with our families, our friends and our surroundings.  Adaptation helps us survive stressful situations.  We adapt to aid our resilience and recovery from life experiences.  This form of adaptation is familiar to all of us and is necessary for our survival.

What Should You Know About Drug Reactions?

 Genevie L. Kocourek, M.D.


Millions of people take medications and supplements to manage high blood pressure, diabetes, cholesterol, and other conditions.  These medications can be tremendously beneficial for your health.  But, many people do not know these medications can interact with each other, with herbal preparations and supplements, with foods or beverages, or with a medical condition.  Some interactions may cause minor symptoms such as temporary nausea or diarrhea, but some interactions can be deadly. There are many different examples; consider some of the following:

A Different View of Why We Are Here

Boris Matthew, Ph.D., Jungian Analyst


Let's face it: Why are we here on the planet? Apparently other people have asked this question before. I just googled "Why are we here on earth?" and got more than ten pages of hits. I'm not going to review them here. If they interest you, you can google and follow up. What I want to do is to suggest a viewpoint that makes more and more sense the older I get. Maybe it will make sense to you, too. And then I will reference an interview with the late psychologist, James Hillman, who elaborates this point- of-view with his interviewer.

Ommani Conversion to EMR

Sherris F. Corby, Practice Manager

We are pleased to announce The Ommani Center will begin using electronic medical records (EMR) in late-August.  We are proud to be the first integrative clinic in southeastern Wisconsin authorized to be a part of this system.  Doing so will bring us into compliance with requirements of the Affordable Care Act.


 All of our practitioners and staff are currently participating in training to acquire proficiency in the system. Once the conversion is complete and we've adjusted to the new program, our protocols should be more efficient and secure.  Additionally, our patients will be able to take advantage of a feature called "My Chart" which is a secure online system permitting direct access to the medical chart and allowing confidential and direct communication with your physician or practitioner.


If you have any questions about the change, don't hesitate to ask our staff.  We appreciate your patience with our learning as we make this important change.
