The Natural Nurse And Dr. Z – 10.27.15

Host Natural Nurse® Ellen Kamhi, PhD RN, www.naturalnurse.com, interviews Jill Baron, M.D. Dr. Jill Baron is a highly skilled and compassionate physician who is board certified by both the American Board of Family Medicine and the American Board of Integrative Holistic Medicine, certified in Functional Medicine, and is a Certified Menopause Practitioner (NCMP) with the North American Menopause Society. Dr. Baron’s interest in mind-body medicine began when she learned the Transcendental Meditation technique at the age of 16. She completed a degree biology at Princeton University, attended the Mount Sinai School of Medicine, and choose a residency in Family Medicine at the State University of New York at Stony Brook. She is a consultant on Dr. Oz’s Sharecare.com website, and has appeared on television and radio speaking about health. Dr. Baron combines conventional primary care medicine with holistic and mind-body therapies including nutrition and weight management; lifestyle counseling; stress management; and visualization and imagery. Dr. Baron feels that stress accounts for many of the illnesses that afflict her patients. Through her functional medicine training, Dr. Baron has learned that a high stress lifestyle, alone or with overuse of antibiotics and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, may contribute to what is called a “leaky gut,” which can lead to many health issues such as irritable bowel syndrome, fatigue, depression, and autoimmune conditions. As a pianist and violinist, Dr. Baron, believes in the power of music to heal. She has always believed that people need kindness and caring, and she has seen how patients can feel better without pharmaceuticals, when they have been listened to and cared for. Dr. Baron has studied with many healers and teachers, and she continues to learn and take courses to help her be the best she can for her patients. She practices the Transcendental Meditation technique and QiGong, and tries to incorporate mindfulness in her daily life.
