I first met Nancy Lonsdorf when she was a medical student at Johns Hopkins University in the 1970’s. We were part of a small group who practiced the yogic flying technique of the TM-Sidhi program at the Transcendendental Meditation Center in Pikesville, Maryland, near Baltimore.
Now she is Dr. Lonsdorf and she has spent most of her medical career as an expert in Maharishi Ayur-Veda, which is the revived form of ayur-veda, the traditional medical system of India. She is an extraordinarily brilliant and gifted physician. When she had her practice in Washington, D.C. and Margaret and I saw her, I always thought that she brought the best of both Western medicine and Maharishi Ayur-Veda to bear on every medical problem she considered.
Margaret — my late life partner — was with me for one of my appointments with Dr. Lonsdorf in the 1980’s when Dr. Lonsdorf was taking my medical history and asked me whether or not I ever had PMS. Now, you have to understand that Dr. Lonsdorf already had taken my pulse using the ayurvedic technique for evaluating very precisely what imbalances you are experiencing. That means she knew the answer to that question perfectly well. She wanted to know if I knew it. However, I was unwilling to admit to PMS.
Consequently, after staring at me intently for a few moments, Dr. Lonsdorf swung her gaze to Margaret and asked, “Well, does she?”
Margaret said, “Yes!” a little too fast for my taste, and added a vigorous nod.
Whereupon Dr. Lonsdorf turned backed to me and again fixed me with her gaze and said with a dry smile, “I think I’m going to go with the more objective observation.”
I should add that ayurvedic management of those symptoms very greatly improved my life and well-being.
Now Dr. Lonsdorf practices in Fairfield, Iowa, so I love it that she is using teleseminars to give people wider access to her knowledge. You will definitely get more than your money’s worth from her seminars on April 25 and May 9 (both at 9 am PDT/12 noon EDT) on “How To Stay Young, Healthy and Beautiful with Ageless Beauty Detox.” To get more information and register, go here. If the times are not convenient for you, the registration price includes downloadable recordings of the talks, which are scheduled for 70 minutes each, so you can still hear them.
