I feel that western medicine has so much to offer us, but I recently have had the misfortune of experiencing its "dark side." Instead of being treated as a whole person, we are shuttled from one specialist to another to address our parts: We have the cardiologist, dermatologist, neurologist, urologist, gynecologist, and so forth.

Then there are a few delightful squeals from my 10-month-old daughter as she happily watches me crush herbs with my mortar and pestle. I only hope that one day she might be doing the same – enjoying an evening cooking with her daughter.
