Outside The Box of Conventional Medicine: History Shows Slow Progress for Functional, Integrative and Other Approaches

Do you ever see the information about 'outside the box' health and think 'that makes SO MUCH SENSE, why didn't I hear about that before now?' Or 'why isn't EVERYONE doing this already, if it's been known for a while?'.  I hope this topic will help provide some answers. This will likely be a topic I add onto and improve upon as time goes on.  read more »

Dr. Rodger Murphree is one of the resources Dr Spurlock, Lumigrate's 'in house' FM/CFS/environmental medicine specialist, suggests people learn from, saying "he's one of my mentors".
