Dr. Judi's Dream Team

Hello! I'm Jason, Dr. Judi's son. I do occasional technical work on her blog so I have the access to sneak in as a guest writer while while she's busy healing. She knows nothing about this; hopefully she'll forgive my intrusion.

I invite you to consider being a part of Dr. Judi's Dream Team.

My mother, Dr. Judi, is a very busy woman. She spends an incredible amount of her time and her heart on healing people. She knows the trust that people put in her and works hard to be an excellent doctor so she can help her clients. This includes spending more time with clients than most doctors, staying on the cutting edge of medical advances so that she can offer the best solutions, and being open to proven solutions, whether or not they fit within the current culture of medicine.

In doing this Dr. Judi has developed a strong reputation for success with difficult-to-diagnose and chronic conditions. Client after client with problems like diabetes, fibromyalgia, autism, environmental illnesses, and anxiety disorders have experienced real relief through her work. But you already know this—that's why you read this blog.

What you may not be aware of, is that she has also discovered a variety of barriers to healing deeply entrenched in the traditional medical establishment. Barriers that she has had to work through herself in order to reach the level of success that she has. Barriers like compartmentalized specialization, a lack of awareness of the heavy impact of emotions on health, and a focus on isolated data rather than on whole people.

Dr. Judi really wants to change this. Because of her success, she has so many more people that want to see her than she has time to see. Her waiting list for appointments is often months long. She just doesn't have enough time herself to see them all.

For over a decade, Dr. Judi has been steadily working on a private dream, a vision of starting a Medical School/Healing Center. This Medical School/Healing Center would be designed to remove these barriers from the medical establishment and to create healing opportunities for many more people than she can treat herself. By shifting medical education's focus from rote memorization and intense competition to results-based healing, she can plant the seeds for a generation of doctors that connect with their patients as a rule, rather than as an exception. By exposing students to global medical research, she can open their eyes to astounding results that are being achieved in other countries. Yes, this would also be a research school, applying hard numbers and statistics using cutting edge methods like Active Control Study Design to alternative medicine to see what is a real opportunity, and what is snake oil.

Dr. Judi had an opportunity to test out part of her vision while she was an Area Medical Representative for the LDS Church in South America. A number of missionaries for the LDS Church were ending their proselyting early because of mental, emotional, and physical health issues. They couldn't find help out in the mission field, so they were returning home for medical treatment, with varying degrees of success. Dr. Judi (Hermana Moore at the time) was living in a hostel near the LDS Temple in the area, and began a program of having missionaries with significant health issues stay there at the hostel where she could work on an intense, whole person healing program with them, for a period of a few days to several weeks. After her program started, the number of missionaries going home because of unsuccessful medical care dropped drastically. Almost without fail, every missionary that went through her program was able to successfully complete their proselyting commitment.

Dr. Judi isn't unfamiliar with teaching in medical schools. A few years after she graduated from medical school herself, she was asked to return to that same school to teach other students. And she has served on the Utah Licensing Board of Osteopathic Physicians, the licensing body that determines who is and is not qualified for a D.O. medical license in the State of Utah.

This isn't just some vague desire. Over the past decade, Dr. Judi has met with a variety of people who have wanted to fund her project. She was approached by Utah Valley University officials (when it was UVSC) to see whether it would work to open the school in association with the university. She has been in negotiations with a number of people on purchasing land to start the school. She has contact with experienced, qualified professionals that want to teach at her school.

Unfortunately, my mother doesn't have the time to work on all these projects. To write business plans and proposals, to manage a non-profit entity that would head up the project. To raise funds and negotiate real estate purchases and establish marketing strategies. All of her time is taken up healing her clients.

Dr. Judi needs a team of experienced, qualified people that see the incredible possibilities that lie in her vision, her dream, and are willing to step in and pick up a part of the load to make it happen. People who have had success creating big projects from the ground up. People who see the need for change and growth in the medical establishment, and who are ready to take action to make it happen.

Dr. Judi knows what needs to be done. But she can't do it herself. You, however, may have the experience, the skills, the contacts to move her vision forward. Or you may know someone who does. Are you interested in being a part of Dr. Judi's Dream Team?


P.S. I love you, Mom!

I guess this is where we ask our questions?

A doctor recently suggested amino acid therapy for depression. Any experience with this kind of treatment? What are your thoughts?

Dear Anonymous,

Amino acids have assisted many people through anxiety and depression. However, just as with every therapy, they don't work for everyone. However, they are much safer than medication and a trial generally doesn't hurt.

Amino acids are the building blocks of the body's 50,000 proteins. Some of those proteins are neurotransmitters which affect mood. By supplementing those building blocks, often there is a change in the level of the neurotransmitters with positive results.

Tryptophan helps build serotonin, a major player in depression. 5-HTP is another form which can be found in the health food stores.

GABA is an amino acid that also acts as a neurotransmitter. It has a calmin effect on the mind.

Glutamine is a precursor for GABA, and also reduces alcohol and sugar cravings.

Phenylalanine assits in building dopamine and norepinephrine. It is often used to decrease emotional and physical pain.

Taurine helps prevent neurotransmitter overactivity, and is thought to reduce hyperactivity and anxiety.

Tyrosine helps build norepinephrine, epinepherine and dopamine. It is also a basic building block for the thyroid hormone.

It is important to take extra B-vitamins, vitamin C and zinc that are used as co-enzymes to create the neurotransmitters. SuperMulti Plus has all that is necessary to use along with the amino acids.

I recommend finding a doctor knowledgable in amino acid therapy. Since your doctor recommended it, I assume he/she would be able to treat you.

Best wishes on your journey towards healing.

Dr. Judi
