There is almost daily doses of these studies disguised under science that are fed to the public but don’t believe everything you read or watch.

Recently there was a study that came out stating “Diet soda helps weight loss”. Before you rush to take a gulp, stop and recognize that ….


  • If the study contradicts some very basic knowledge, beware.
  • If the Fox is guarding the Hen House (i.e. the research sponsor benefits from the study), Beware.
  • If the study seems to be overmarketed by Media, beware.
  • If the study is NOT large enough (sample size) e.g. 300 participant in the Diet soda study, Beware.
  • If the study gives nothing more to describe its findings, then Beware.
  • If the study is not independently validated or published in a reputed journal, Beware.

STOP and REFLECT on what you heard/read.

By training, I am a American Board Certified Pediatrician. But in my younger years I grew up with natural alternatives. As a mom I have tried to incorporate both for my kids and it has worked wonders. And finally, as I am studying natural & alternative medicines, I realize the beauty and wisdom of living closer to earth. Hence in my practice I integrate both...for acute ailments I follow American Academy of Pediatrics recommendation but for simple and/or chronic conditions I prefer natural alternatives. In western training we were raised to think that "health is the absence of symptoms and problems". But eastern sensibilities has educated me that "Health is state that allows one to use the full capabilities of their body, mind and intellect. Therefore, healthy living is a balanced state of well being: physically, mentally, socially and spiritually." This implies that healing is not a "one-pill-fits-all", but a personalized experience.
