We have been involved in the use of this treatment early on and continue to research new diseases that respond to the application of light. Recently, while presenting a course on Light Therapy to… Continue reading

For all of those who have been patiently waiting (other than Jess, that is), Olivia arrived this past Saturday morning to very excited parents.

At the time of this writing, Hurricane Irma has devastated islands in the Caribbean, made landfall in Florida and is moving into Georgia to wreak havoc there.

Oh, the doldrums of winter. The holidays are done, with only the credit card bills left. We can try to think spring, but it certainly doesn’t look or feel much like it outside. How about our canine and feline friends? Do they suffer from the “downer days” of January and February like their owners? In… Continue reading
