Dr. Gladys' Articles and Books


Dr. Gladys Taylor McGarey is internationally known for her pioneer work in alternative medicine. Dr. Gladys, as she is affectionately known, says it is not about killing off a disease, but instead, it is about seeing the patient as a whole person. She believes that the practice of medicine has become a war against disease, a killing machine.  Rather than building life,  we are destroying it. Her premise is that we must change our focus from killing to living. As we support the living process in a person, life itself brings about the healing that the person needs. Our job as physicians is to work and support the 'Physician Within' each of us. Then, living medicine becomes our dwelling place.

    And now I have new books to read! Dr Gladys, my mom and dad (Jim and Diane Gardiner) adore you. I grew up hearing about your philosophy of health and healing. Now I am finishing my preparation to be a FNP and am becoming certified in Functional Medicine. I hope my future work for the health of others will, in some small way, pay honor to your legacy.

    Dr. Gladys , Just started reading your book “The Dwelling Place”. It was gifted to me after our mutual friend Sherry Ward passed. I believe God puts what we need in front of us when the time is right. Your book speaks volumes to me. Thank you and I thank our friend Sherry as without her your book would’ve never been in my hands. Blessings & Love, Carrie
