I am a registered nurse with a doctorate in public health (Johns Hopkins) and 60 years experience as a nurse practitioner, educator, author, and researcher. 12 books and book chapters, over 100 articles and international presentations, and numerous awards including the Distinguised Career Award from the American Public Health Assn. and a listing on Wikipedia. I am also a 38 year lung cancer survivor (longest living) who was given 6 months to live by traditional medicine so I refused chemo/surgery and used all natural interventions. Two of my books have been on using natural interventions to live to old age free of chronic illnesses and prescribed medications, and the other will be published November 30, 2012 on my lung cancer experience and remaining cancer free using natural interventions with additional chapters by some of the top alternative physicians and health practitioners nationally. At age 80 I currently produce and host the holistic health show (www.HolisticHealthShow.com) on BBS Radio to help others learn about natural ways to deal with conditions such as cancer, diabetes, arthritis, low back pain, seasonal allergiers and others. I have an average of 85,000 people come to my website monthly.
