There are many individuals and groups I am aligned with in forwarding Integrative Health. Here are several that I recommend:
Robert Whitaker won the 2011 highest award for Investigative Journalism for his book, Anatomy of an Epidemic, which documents the long-term effects of psychiatric medications. Whitaker has a blog on Psychology Today in which he comments about current events and news items vis a vis the appropriate and inappropriate use of psychiatric medications: www.psychologytoday.com/blog/mad-in-america
Alexander Moreira-Almeida, MD is a Brazilian and leading spokesman regarding the relationship between spirituality and mental health. As a Spiritist and psychiatrist, he is able to offer great insight into the value of Spiritual therapies. A collection of his articles in English can be found on www.hoje.org.br/site/elsh.php
The Medical Spiritist Association has an office in the USA. One of its main functions is to organize a conference once every two years to increase dialogue bridging medicine and spirituality. See www.sma-us.org for more information.
Dr. Larry Dossey (www.DosseyDossey.com) has been a pioneer in the USA documenting the healing effects of prayer and the value of employing the effects of non-local consciousness in healing.
Dr. Daniel Benor is the North American psychiatrist who tells his story of transformation from nonbeliever to believer in the effects of spiritual healing in the documentary film Spiritism: Bridging Spirituality and Health. You can view or purchase this 30-minute film at Amazon.com by clicking here. Dr. Benor has also written numerous books that document and organize the research that shows the effects of spiritual healing both for paraprofessionals and professional readers. See his website (www.wholistichealingresearch.com) for information about his online international journal.
