Drawing upon her many years as a leading educator, physician, midwife, researcher, and National Geographic author, Dr. Tieraona Low Dog informs and inspires audiences with her ability to weave science and ancient wisdom into a message of hope and transformation for the 21st century.
Dr. Low Dog will present “Life is Your Best Medicine,” the 11th Annual Leonore Annenberg Lecture sponsored by the Annenberg Center for Health Sciences at Eisenhower.
It is said that when we are born, we are set upon our medicine road. And that everything we do in our lives, from the food that we eat, to the way we move in the world, to the way we treat a stranger – affects us. Modern science is now confirming what many indigenous peoples long believed, that much of our health and vitality comes from the way we live our lives.
Dr. Low Dog’s exploration of natural medicine and its role in modern health care began more than 35 years ago as she studied midwifery, herbal medicine, massage therapy, and martial arts before earning her medical degree from the University of New Mexico School of Medicine. She currently serves as the Fellowship Director for the Academy of Integrative Health and Medicine.
Dr. Low Dog will discuss:
- The effect of chronic stress on your well-being;
- How to improve your physical and emotional health;
- Strategies for reducing fatigue and improving sleep;
- Ways to enhance your nutrition
