On episode 327 of The Nurse Keith Show nursing and healthcare career podcast, Keith interviews physician, author, and alternative medicine champion Dr. Mona Balogh. whose career path led her to recognize therapeutic modalities that may be helpful in conjunction with evidence-based allopathic medicine, and to write the book, “How to Stay Out of My Emergency Room: Master Your Health and Find Joy in Life by Balancing the Power of Your Mind, Body, and Spirit”, 

Mona Balogh is a retired Emergency Physician. She got her medical degree at Southwestern Medical School in Dallas, Texas, and did her residency in Emergency Medicine at Los Angeles County/University of Southern California Medical Center near downtown Los Angeles. Before settling in to a comfortable ER practice at the Kaiser Woodland Hills Medical Center in Los Angeles, Dr. Balogh worked at a variety of other hospital ERs in and around Los Angeles. She even flew with a group of medical aid workers called the Flying Samaritans, who provide free health care to underserved populations in Baja California, Mexico.

Dr. Balogh became interested in alternative medicine midway through her career after attending an addiction medicine seminar; this path led her to recognize other therapeutic modalities that may be helpful in conjunction with evidence-based (Western) medicine. Since then she has studied — both formally and informally — acupuncture, traditional Chinese medicine, energy medicine, herbal healing, and homeopathic medicine. Her interest in treating the most recalcitrant patients —  the “frequent flyers” — led her to write her book. She lives with her husband, Endre, in Chatsworth, California.
