Transforming the face of psychiatry, Judith Orloff MD 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.
Dr. Orloff is accomplishing for psychiatry what physicians like Dean Ornish and Mehmet Oz have done for mainstream medicine — she is proving that the links between physical, emotional, and spiritual health can’t be ignored. She was called in The Nation Magazine, one of the “FRONTIER PEOPLE” in health who was not satisfied with the existing order and pushed for an expansion of knowledge. Dr. Orloff is a New York Times bestselling author and is on the UCLA psychiatric clinical faculty. She specializes in treating empaths and sensitive people in her Los Angeles based private practice. She has spoken at medical schools, hospitals, the American Psychiatric Association, Google-LA, Fortune Magazine’s Most Powerful Women’s Summit, and alternative and traditional health forums — venues where she presents practical intuitive tools to doctors, patients, and everyday people. In response to her work, The Los Angeles Times calls Dr. Orloff “a prominent energy-based healer.”
Dr. Orloff’s latest book “The Empath’s Survival Guide: Life Strategies for Sensitive People” (Sounds True, 2017) is an invaluable resource to help sensitive people of all kinds develop healthy coping mechanisms in our high-stimulus world without experiencing compassion fatigue or burnout. Empaths can then fully embody their gifts of intuition, creativity, and compassion. In Dr. Orloff’s first book, “Second Sight” she chronicles her struggles acknowledging and then finally embracing her gift of intuition. Her second book, “Guide to Intuitive Healing” shows how breakthroughs in healing our body, emotions, and sexuality can be accomplished by listening to intuition. “Positive Energy,” which has been translated into 25 languages, takes a probing look at the American epidemic of exhaustion and how we can reverse it using specific strategies to build energy and combat draining people. Her New York Times bestseller, “Emotional Freedom” describes how to transform negative emotions into positive ones with specific techniques. Finally, “The Power of Surrender” describes the power of letting go in everyday life, health, and wellness–an enlivening and sane alternative to pushing, forcing, and over controlling people and situations.
Dr. Orloff’s work has been featured in the New York Times, O Magazine, Forbes, Newsweek, USA Today, Wall Street Journal, Self, Cosmo, Washington Times, Teen Vogue, Scientific American, and New York Post. She has appeared on The Today Show, The Dr. Oz Show, CBS Early Show, CNN, PBS, BBC, and NPR. She has spoken at Google-LA and has a popular TEDX talk with over half a million views. Dr. Orloff is also a blogger on Elephant Journal, Huffington Post, and Psychology Today. More information at www.drjudithorloff.com.
