A Health and Healing presentation at All Souls Unitarian Church will feature Kamyar Hedayat, MD. Dr. Hedayat has been director for a multi-disciplinary out-patient holistic pediatric practice at the Center for Integrative medicine, says Frances Flournoy.

"Dr Hedyat's contract with Schumpert Hospital has recently ended. He will be returning to Chicago in the next few months, so come learn from him now," says Flournoy.

Kamyar M. Hedayat, MD, was born in Detroit, the son of a
cardiologist and nurse anesthetist. He was raised combining Western and Eastern philosophy, spirituality and healing techniques, including essential oils, hydrolats, herbals and energy medicine.

He completed a BA, with honors, in Psychology and minors in languages (ancient Greek, French, and Farsi) and literature from the University of Michigan in 1991. He obtained his medical doctorate at Wayne State University in 1998, which included a one month preceptorship with Dr. Andrew Weil. He completed residency in pediatrics in 2001 at William Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak, Michigan. He completed a fellowship in pediatric critical care at Stanford University in 2004.

Dr. Hedayat has introduced aromatherapy, music therapy, massage,
cransiosacral manipulation, myofacial release, and holistic nutrition into the in-patient and out-patient care of children. He has conducted a multi-disciplinary out-patient holistic pediatric practice at the Center for Integrative Medicine where he practices aromatherapy, Reiki and allopathic medicine, working closely with physical and occupational therapists, spiritual and psychological counselors and holistic nutritionists.

He is married and has two children. In addition to his scholarly activities, which includes over 10 articles on topics ranging from medical ethics to critical care, he writes articles on clinical aromatherapy, poetry, children’s short fiction, and enjoys hiking, swimming and finding a good place to get lost and find his way back again.

No one exactly knows why we use aromatherapy and what do we accomplish consequently.
Is it for any ailment or just treatment of symptoms.? Is it for pleasure, sedation or improve the olfactory system ?
On the one hand it is claimed to be anti-Viral, antiseptic, fungicidal, ease congestion, aid flow of mucus, expectorant, strongly stimulating with uplifting qualities, sedating and very aromatically pleasing.
On the other hand the disclaimer strongly urges that the product description for reference only and no claim is made to its accuracy. Also, aromatherapy has not been evaluated by FDA, and are not intended to diagnose, treat or prevent any disease.
Then, why do we advertise to sell these products to the public ?
To best of my knowledge, no research or scientific center, in the country, to this date, tested and verified the accuracy of the claims, nor was the FDA validated it.
