Dr. Larry Burk has spent much of his life practicing traditional medicine as a radiologist. But his search for solutions to his patients’ problems led him on an unexpected journey outside of traditional medicine. A graduate of Duke University, Burk co-founded the Duke Center for Integrative Medicine. He is certified in acupuncture, hypnosis, EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) and is committed to holistic medicine.

Host Frank Stasio speaks with Dr. Larry Burk about his new book, 'Dreams That Can Save Your Life: Early Warning Signs of Cancer and Other Diseases'.

His new book, “Dreams That Can Save Your Life: Early Warning Signs of Cancer and Other Diseases” (Findhorn Press/ 2018) shares stories of patients who diagnosed themselves after a dream. This research began after a physician friend had a nightmare that accurately predicted she had breast cancer. Further study showed this was not a unique phenomenon. 

Dr. Burk joins host Frank Stasio to share his journey from radiologist to holistic healer and educator. Burk will be talking about his book at Regulator Bookshop in Durham Thursday, April 19 at 7 p.m; Scuppernong Books in Greensboro Friday, April 20 at 7 p.m. and Park Road Books in Charlotte Saturday, April 21 at 2 p.m.
