Dr. Jacqueline Campbell, my former physician and friend, is pursuing yet another avenue to deseminate life-saving, health-enhancing medical information that can keep us physically well. As a blogger I not only endorse this avenue of communication but to welcome her to Blogger’s world.

Dr. Campbell has been our family physician since 1991. If she specialized in veterinary medicine as well, our pets would go see her too. She truly knows her stuff and I cannot express how much I appreciate the fact that she promotes and believes in alternative medicine. I am a big fan of homeopathic and naturopathic approaches but live in a country where a lot of medical doctors shun it. Hats off to you Dr. Campbell! Before there was a pharmacy, all we had was the bushes and herbs and the human race strived well on them. You’re brilliant! Looking forward to more.
