My name is Dr. Merita Jackson Hinds, OMD.
I am licensed and certified as a Doctor of Traditional Asian Medicine, clinical psychologist, and a medical macrobiotic chef.
I have been in practice since 1987 in Hawaii, California and Maryland in the United States.
My emphasis has been for the over twenty years in the treatment of auto immune conditions and reinforcing treatments both Eastern and Western with the nutritional support found in the application of medical macrobiotics.
My research on squamous cell carcinoma has been documented at the National Institute of Health in Bethesda, Maryland as well as my findings on Thalassemia Minor at the Mayo Clinic in Phoenix, Arizona, and Prostate Cancer at Cedar Sinai, Beverly Hills, California.
I am an accomplished lecturer speaking on the topics of prevention and treatment modalities ranging from substance abuse ( Hawaii ,Oleo Public TV), to auto immune challenges as expressed in physical abnormalities of arthritis, muscular sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, scleroderma, paralysis, cancer and others.
I am very interested in sharing my years of experience.
