Women and Heart Disease

Kalpana (Rose) M. Kumar, M.D.

When asked what a well-educated woman considers her greatest health hazard, 9 out of 10 times her answer will be breast cancer.


Heart disease is actually the nation's number one killer, causing more deaths than all cancers combined. Women account for 51 % of all cardiac deaths per year in the U.S. It is the leading cause of death in women age 20 and greater. The fastest growing users of prescription drugs for heart disease are men and women, ages 29 to 44. Among women, however, there is no improvement in mortality. In fact, their mortality rate has been rising over the past ten years. 

Chinese Medicine in the 21st Century

Aimee Brown, Lac, MSOM

Traditional Chinese Medicine has been practiced for thousands of years and contains five branches of healing.  While most of us know of the benefits of acupuncture, we don't realize that acupuncture is one branch of Traditional Chinese Medicine.  And, we don't often hear about another branch - Chinese herbal medicine.  The Cleveland Clinic has taken a ground-breaking step and introduced Chinese herbal medicine as a routinely available system of care. Osher Center for Integrative Medicine at Northwestern University and North Shore University Health System, affiliated with the University of Chicago, both include Chinese herbal medicine among their offerings.  Take a look at this linked, April, 2014, article from the Wall Street Journal; it describes what the Cleveland Clinic is doing.  


Our acupuncturist, Aimee Brown, has a Master of Science in Oriental Medicine and is trained in the use of Chinese herbs.  Call our office at 262.695.5311 to schedule an appointment with her.

The Individual Language of Homeopathy

David A. Johnson, Certified Classical Homeopath

In this thought-provoking YouTube video, world-renowned homeopath, Rajan Sankaran, MD, discusses homeopathy and self-healing. He points out the need for individualization of care with each and every homeopathic client, as well as need for the client's own self-reflection and desire to make a change. In most states of dis-ease, the client speaks a "language" pointing to a broader state of distress, and in the homeopathic consultation, the client and homeopath work together to understand this broader experience. Nature, in turn, has very, very specific answers for the different dilemmas we find ourselves in, and homeopathic remedies are matched with these dilemmas. In concert with our own desire for healing, the ultimate aim for a remedy is self-healing on all levels of being, such that we're free to pursue 'the higher purposes of our existence'.

Creating a Life Worth Living

Boris Matthews, Jungian Analyst

Author and Jungian Analyst, James Hollis PhD is one of the most prolific Jungian analysts in the country. View the attached link in which he discusses finding your own individual path. If we indeed want to create a life worth living, we have to do our inner work -- something we sometimes forget in a shallow, fast-paced culture which seldom challenges us & spoon-feeds us comforting junk food instead of genuine nourishment. Find out what Hollis can teach us about creating a life and finding our path, a pragmatic guide to individuation-the creation of a meaningful life worthy of its soul.   


Here, at the Ommani Center, Jungian psychoanalyst, Boris Matthews is available to accompany you on your journey of creating a life worth living.  Call 608.217.5184 to schedule an appointment or talk to Boris about the process; click here.  

Body Wisdom

Shelly Carpenter, PT, RYT, Reiki Master/Teacher

When we experience pain or other health issues it is easy to feel like a victim. Another option is to look for the lessons as we consciously explore possible causes and contributing factors. 


What message is your body trying to give you? Do you pay attention and honor those messages, ignore and push through, or just give up?
