Perhaps the best part of writing a book is that once people start to read it, they send letters and emails suggesting that I look into some aspect of the subject that they have looked into or heard about. As many of you know, my heart book, Human Heart, Cosmic Heart, has been out for about three weeks, and the new ideas are already rolling in.

Dear friends, October 1 was a milestone day for me: my 60th birthday. It was a time for me to reflect on what I have done in my life, the people I have met who have helped me along the way, and also to realize that I am well into this journey we call life. These reflections, especially the last one, has motivated me to no longer put off things that are important in my life. Hence, this letter. More than 30 years ago I learned that Rudolf Steiner said...

The first is that using the heat-sensing camera allows me to see certain abnormalities that can lead us to a more accurate diagnosis. An example is people whose camera images clearly demonstrate a line of elevated temperature emanating from their spinal column along the distribution of a nerve root. I have seen this line in both the neck and lower-back areas. These findings often correlate with symptoms of nerve pain...

Thanks to my steady private practice and my growing family business, Dr. Cowan’s Garden, it has been quite a busy time for me these past six months or so.

It has been truly gratifying to hear comments from all those who have enjoyed our powders. The other big news is that my heart book, Human Heart, Cosmic Heart, published by Chelsea Green, has...

Hello, everyone.

One of the most crucial and often agonizing medical decisions people have to make these days, as well as one of the main reasons people consult with me, is whether to take statin drugs prescribed by either their family doctor or their cardiologist. Statin drugs are a family of chemicals that has been in use since the 1960s that work in the same way: They inhibit the action of the HMG- CoA reductase enzyme in the liver, which prevents the liver from synthesizing cholesterol, particularly the so-called “bad” cholesterol, LDL....
