Ever since I knew exactly what I wanted to do with my life, I have worked passionately to make it a reality and I have always believed that if I am to be successful in my pursuits, I will find that success through balance. It is because of this I want to introduce to you a television program called Balance. Balance is a nationally-televised cable TV show that explores connections that people have made between health and wealth. The essential idea behind the show is that everyone is entitled to realize their full potential yet often what stands in the way is poor health or poor finance. However, with a balanced lifestyle that emphasizes wellness as well as taking care of yourself and your community, success can become a reality. The program offers the personal stories of guests who have achieved success in their careers and personal lives and can reflect on the — sometimes arduous — journey.
I was asked to speak about my own journey and I am excited to announce that the episode will air on the Discovery Fit & Health channel on Thursday, November 15, 2012 at 5:00 AM. You will also get to meet Gavin Keilly, founder of GBK Productions, and hear how he came to be a successful entrepreneur and charity contributor as well as hosts Steven E. Schmitt and Trissa Tismal.
Head over to Physician’s Money Digest to read Ed Rabinowitz’s profile of Dr. Jet. An excerpt:
When Lewis was studying to be a physician, his original line of thinking was surgery. That changed before he finished medical school. His mother, who had been a nurse and inspired him to explore the health care field, experienced a stroke, and watching her work through rehabilitation changed his focus.
“I think anything that happens with your parents tends to inspire you,” Lewis explains. “Being involved there, trying to get her to walk again, and feed her again, because it was a pretty intense stroke, really got my interest going in that direction. And my sister is an occupational therapist, so we spent a lot of time together talking.”
Those experiences propelled Lewis into the world of pain management, and set the stage for his embracing an integrative approach to healing.
Late Night Health, the radio show I co-host with Mark Alyn, had its first airing this year and has garnered attention as a result, like a recent Suite101 article that offers details about how the show came to be:
He had the idea for the show several months ago while talking with a friend at a radio station. Alyn told him, “I’d like to do a show on the weekends geared to the boomer and it would be on late at night, maybe at midnight.”
His friend offered him a spot on his station starting the following weekend. Alyn did not accept immediately, opting to take his time and do more pre-production to garner better results. But several weeks later Late Night Health was born.
As more and more people are taking ownership of their health, many are interested in methods of pain relief and health guidance that emphasize alternatives to standard medication. Late Night Health is a great place to hear experts and innovators talk about how to improve well-being without leaving your comfort zone. Often, the solution can be simplicity itself.
While the program offers all kinds of options including pharmaceutical treatments, acupuncture, chiropractics and other alternative ideas, Dr. Lewis had one piece of simple advice that everyone can heed, “Slow down and smell the roses. We are all so busy and often multitasking, myself included. We need to enjoy life more and appreciate the roses.”

I’ve been kindly featured in an article by Trevor Dagarin on the Splash Magazines blog — you can find the full article on LAsplash.com. I love what I do and it’s very fulfilling to be able to bring relief to my patients and inspire hope in others. It’s an honor to be recognized and a blessing to be able to make a difference.
Dr. Moshe Lewis is an expert and medical specialist in the field of pain management and rehab. As an agent of constant change, Dr. Lewis systematically pieces together ways of integrating medical disciplines. Some include acupuncture, osteopathy, physical therapy, chiropracty and psychotherapy, all with a goal of utilizing noninvasive techniques to increase recovery time for patients with habitual pain and discomfort. Pushing the boundaries is where Dr. Lewis feels most comfortable. “The pain doctor of today and most certainly tomorrow is going to combine the best of the East and West,” said Dr. Lewis. On an individual basis, selecting the appropriate combination of techniques is critical to help relieve or stop a patient’s pain. “I am constantly trying to select novelty therapies some of which are old and some of which are brand new."

There’s been a lot of buzz about Google and their stance on user privacy recently. When it comes to the internet and technology, you can always assume some malicious company or person is after your private information. This is no different in the new “app” economy. Free applications are known to search your smartphone for personal information, many times for malicious purposes. These applications don’t give any indication they are sucking in your personal data, so to be safe you must assume these free applications will take your data in order to turn a profit. For more information, be sure to read this PhysiciansMoneyDigest article.
Moshe Lewis, MD, a pain management specialist, is referred to as the “Digital Doctor” due to his use of social media to establish better doctor-patient relationships. He says that these apps really are not free when it comes to the privacy of information.
“The fact is that information is always being collected,” says Lewis, noting that Amazon absorbs information like a wet sponge. “I think the challenge is that we almost have to stay off the Internet to avoid it.”
However, the best site at gathering information may be Google, according to Gray, who finds Gmail “the spookiest of all.” Google’s email service lifts and saves keywords from email. For example, if you send an email to someone discussing the fact that you’re planning a vacation to Florida, you’ll soon see ads popping up on your screen promoting Florida vacations and airfare.
“It’s actually delving into your correspondence and using that information to market to you,” he says.
And physicians need to be aware of that, says Gray. They should realize that if they’re using an app to write or chart patient prescriptions, that information is likely being monitored.
“If you’re a gastroenterologist, presumably there’s some organization that would like to know what you’re prescribing and target certain products to you based on that information,” he says.
