Dr Stephen Grobmyer comes armed with slides bearing a ton of medical information and statistics, and a most reassuring demeanor. If I had to get a breast cancer diagnosis, I might want it to come from him — chair of the oncology unit, professor of surgery and director of breast cancer surgery at Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi.  He’s speaking to dozens of women, alongside his colleague, Dr M Jean Uy-Kroh, chief of physician staff affairs and...

Mothers have been doing this for years, too.  Wet socks are a simple hydrotherapy technique which is especially effective for relieving nasal congestion,...

Laila Saif’s road to Illuminations Abu Dhabi began when, as a hard-working executive, she googled Theta Healing and came across the original wellbeing center in Dubai.  Intrigued, she soon headed up the highway from her home in Abu Dhabi to investigate. She didn’t know it then, but it was a move which she says ended up completely transforming her life.  “At the time I was always stressed, with a lot of suppressed frustrations and anger and...

If I don’t sweat, I don’t consider it a workout. And if I’m not able to tip the contents of my mind into a mental landfill, I don’t consider myself meditated.  I’m not your prime candidate for anything related to holistic healing, energy tapping...
