We are Women Empowered

On this episode, Nikki talks to Dr. Cesar Lara about how he has helped his patients heal themselves from the inside out.  Dr. Lara shares how after being a family doctor for a while, his mother came to him and told him she just felt terrible and wanted to know if he could prescribe her something to make her feel better.  She had diabetes that was being managed by insulin, so he ran her bloodwork to check for problems, and after it came back normal, he thought maybe an antidepressant would help.  When the antidepressant didn't work, he began to wonder if her medications were the problem.  He managed to get her off all of her medications and she felt wildly better, and Dr. Lara realized he wanted to start helping his patients heal themselves without medications when possible.   Now he approaches his patients with a global perspective, considering their emotions and the stories they tell themselves as a way to heal many health issues.  He shares how he has developed this approach, and also discusses how we should approach COVID-19.
