About myself

Working since 1979 as a family-physician in Jerusalem [Gilo neighbourhood]

Married, 3 married daughters

Born in Suriname, studied medicine in Utrecht [Holland] and worked for 7 years in Suriname [as a physician for the Billiton company 1970-1977]

1978 Diploma of Tropical medicine and Hygiene DTMH [London]. The Almighty brought me to Jerusalem instead of Africa, which I thought about after Suriname,

Since 1979 working as a physician in Israel. Worked many years for various sick-funds [Kupot cholim]

Since 1981 more and more with CAM [complementary medicine]

Most influenced by the medical wisdom of Rudolph Ballentine, which brought me to alternative medicine.

Courses of Acupuncture [and homeopathy] in Sri Lanka, London [Prof Mann] and Vienna [there just one week]

and later in Israel [Dr Tan]

This WordPress site is meant mostly for medical information[mostly CAM], for selected Tora article/ thoughts/ mitzvot, for some ethical issues and other possible articles/links which are not easily found on the Internet

  1. To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.
