Judith Orloff, MD

Psychiatrist | Intuitive

Judith Orloff, M.D. is the author of Positive Energy: Transforming Fatigue, Stress and Fear into Vibrance, Strength and Love; Second Sight; and Guide to Intuitive Healing.

SHOW MORE

She is a practicing intuitive, a psychiatrist, and an Assistant Professor of Psychiatry at UCLA with a private practice in Los Angeles. She leads workshops on the interrelationship of intuition, energy, and medicine.

Transforming the face of psychiatry, Dr. Judith Orloff asserts that we are keepers of an innate intuitive intelligence so perceptive that it can tell us how to heal - and prevent - illness. Yet intuition and spirituality are the very aspects of our wisdom usually disenfranchised from traditional health care.

In response, Dr. Orloff advocates "a democracy of healing," wherein every aspect of our being is granted a vote in the search for total health. It is our birthright, both as health-care givers and health-care recipients, to reclaim our intuition, restore it to full standing in the medical realm and thereby carry medicine into the future. The field of medical intuition will also be an integral part of that future.
