This article was originally published in The Wellspring magazine. A fascinating conversation with Dr. Yehuda Frischman. The crisis that sparked his foray into Jewish medicine, and the journey he took to become the beloved messenger of healing he is today.
All the way back in 1990, life was good for Yehuda Frischman. A Los Angeles native, he and his wife were raising their young family, while he was running a successful business. And then, his wife had a seizure—her first of many hundreds to follow.
“Over the course of the next 9 years, we literally travelled around the world to find a cure. We travelled across the United States, and then to Switzerland and Israel. We met with approximately 200 doctors and practitioners, but most of our travels led to dead ends.”
Having been thrown into the medical scene on behalf of his wife, Dr. Frischman immersed himself in the research with a desperation that emanated from his burning desire to help her. “I found that many Western and alternative practitioners were cut from same cloth. No one was really offering an insight as to why she was having the seizures. Conventional medication was not an answer, because her allergy to medication was severe. Her convulsive, life-threatening reaction did not allow us to take that route.”
