Description

Publisher’s Description:
 
This is the captivating story of centenarian Dr. Gladys Taylor McGarey, the Mother of Holistic Medicine, as she takes us on her personal journey to evolve her own paradigm shift into Living Medicine. Filled with wisdom derived both from and for her physician colleagues and patients, this book serves as an introduction as well as a guide to what it takes to create true healing and individualized well-being.
 
Dr. Gladys has long been a medical visionary and pioneer. It’s no coincidence that her vision led her to cofound the American Holistic Medical Association over forty years ago. Out of her personal experience and understanding that life and love are the true teachers and healers, Dr. Gladys has once again given birth to medicine’s next evolution–Living Medicine. She helps the reader glean the roots of medicine’s past and glimpse what’s possible in its future from the perspective of practicing her craft for over eighty years. She teaches us what it means to “age into health” and shows us–by example–how to do it.
 
Those who read the first edition of this book, which is truly her signature work, will likely be surprised and amazed by how much she has grown since then. Don’t miss this opportunity to grow along with her on this journey and get a taste of what’s to come in this field.
 
To heal the broken disease-care system we now have in medicine requires the wisdom and experience of teachers like Dr. Gladys. Aspiring young medical students, as well as residents across all medical specialties, will do well to heed her wisdom as they embark on their unique and individual career paths. Readers of all ages, nationalities, faiths, and creeds will find this fascinating book hard to put down. Lives will be changed as a result, just like “once you’ve seen the cow’s face in the ink blot, you can never go back and not see it.” Reading this book will leave you inspired and looking forward to whatever Dr. Gladys does and discovers as she begins her next one hundred years!
