· Only 8 percent of the homes had a telephone.

· The maximum speed limit in most cities was 10 mph.

· The average British wage in 1915 was £15 per year.

· More than 95 percent of all births took place at home.

· Ninety percent of all Doctors had no university education.

· Most women only washed their hair once a month

· Canada passed a law that prohibited poor people from entering into their country for any reason.

· The five leading causes of death were:

• Pneumonia and influenza

• Tuberculosis

• Diarrhea

• Heart disease

• Stroke

· The American flag had 45 stars.

· The population of Las Vegas, Nevada was only 30.

· Two out of every 10 adults couldn’t read or write

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.
