"We thought they would be more vulnerable to the stress of COVID because they are, by [U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention] definition, the most vulnerable population," said study co-author Dr. Helen Lavretsky, professor-in-residence of psychiatry and biobehavioral sciences at the University of California, Los Angeles."
"I am honored to follow in the Journal's wisdom tradition and share my scientific autobiography, ironically, written in the year of hindsight's 20/20, when my research activities are suspended indefinitely, and I have plenty of time to reflect upon the meaning of life. We are living during unprecedented and difficult times when the entire world is asked to find its spiritual center and resilience in order to find collective solutions to its many problems. The surreal nature of the COVID-19 pandemic and the global lockdown makes each of us look back and ask “how did I get here?” followed by “and how do I move forward?” Reflections upon our life choices that resulted in the situation at hand can be very revealing and can help define our next chapter.

Uninvisible Pod Episode 49: Endocrinologist Dr. Rashmi Mullur on an Integrative Approach to Healing
NOVEMBER 20, 2019
Dr. Rashmi Mullur is an integrative endocrinologist leading practices at UCLA and the VA in Los Angeles. She works with David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA curricular faculty, chairs a course in endocrinology for first-year medical students, and leads UCLA Health Integrative Medicine Collaborative as its education director. Dr. Mullur pioneered clinical programs using integrative medicine techniques for the management of chronic disease and she is recognized as a national leader on the use of integrative medicine for patients with diabetes.
The focus of her practice is in fully integrating Eastern and Western approaches to clinical care, using teachings from yoga, TCM, Ayurveda, and other modalities to truly connect mind and body in the treatment of endocrine disorders such as diabetes, thyroid disorders, stress management, and fatigue – often referring to acupuncturists, movement specialists, and other practitioners to complement her work.
In this podcast, Dr. Mullur shares her experiences with patients living with chronic stress and fatigue, how she manages as a special-needs parent, and her integrative approach to treating stress, fatigue, pain, and addiction.
