I had the pleasure of meeting Dr. Helane' Wabeh for lunch yesterday. Helane' (pronounced Helen-ay) is a doctor of naturopathic medicine here in the Northwest. She is on faculty at the National College of Naturopathic medicine and is conducting research at Oregon Health Sciences University on the effects of mindfulness meditation on people with PTSD. Like myself, Helane has become convinced that healing from PTSD is a multidimensional process that needs to incorporate a spiritual component.
In her private practice Helane' uses a process called "drainage" to work homeopathically with stress related disorder, a treatment that was pioneered by Dickson Thom, ND.
She has a Mindfulness Meditation CD available for purchase at $20.00.
As Helane's research proceeds, I will keep you up to date!
