What is Galen’s Watch?

Galen’s Watch is a journal watch focused on new studies that impact complementary and alternative medicine practitioners.

My mission is to report on new studies that are relevant to complementary and alternative medicine practitioners.

Galen’s Watch enables complementary and alternative medicine practitioners to continuously improve patient care with one single journal watch.  It is a synopsis of CAM relevant studies from over 80 complementary, alternative and mainstream peer reviewed medical journals.

My method of hand selecting articles was designed to identify knowledge pertinent to Naturopaths, Medical /Clinical Herbalists, Nutritionists,  Chiropractors, TCM Practitioners, Homeopaths, Midwives, Doulas, Aromatherapists and Alternative MDs.  This unique selection process screens for studies pertinent to:

  • Botanical medicine or phytotherapy, homeopathy, acupuncture, vitamins, minerals, neutraceuticals and essential oils
  • The modalities of Traditional Chinese Medicine,  Orthomolecular Medicine, Medical Herbalism, Acupuncture, Homeopathy, Clinical Nutrition, and Aromatherapy
  • Diagnostic principles, therapeutic skills and techniques used by complementary and alternative medicine practitioners
  • Complementary treatments used by practitioners including hydrotherapy, massage, yoga, meditation and other lifestyle practices.

Research is conducted by a Medical Herbalist who has an understanding of complementary and alternative medicine disciplines and the studies that would be beneficial to complementary and alternative medicine practitioners. Galen’s Watch does not review animal or histological studies.

Galen’s Watch was named after Galen, the Roman Physician of Greek origins.  Galen was the most accomplished physician of the Roman period.  The Galen’s Watch journal watch was inspired by the founding father of medicine’s acute observation and his ability to influence all eventual descending streams of medicine, mainstream and alternative.
