About Dr. Glassman And His Work
Charles F. Glassman, MD, has been known as Coach MD since 2011. This designation arises from what he has learned in his over 25 years of practice as a medical doctor. Specifically, that many, if not most, problems people go to the doctor to solve actually stem from the challenges of daily life. Instead of giving a pill to try and make them go away, Coach MD's mission is to help people achieve total wellness—having more control over life than one could ever think possible.

Most of my writing is to help understand the working of what I call the automatic brain, or AB for short. Most in medicine refer to this as the autonomic system. This is a primitive brain—primitive in the sense that it has not changed in tens of thousands of years. It is responsible for controlling much of our physiology, and in my opinion, behavior. The AB is hardwired to protect us from anything that it picks up externally from our environment and internal from our bodily systems that may pose danger to us. The perception of danger is different for everyone, but the reaction is universal—fight-or-flight. When ... Read More >>
Unfortunately, our human instinct has caused us to use religion as we have used other objects from time immemorial—to gain advantage over others. To be sure, scripture can be used to give us a moral compass and guidance for a meaningful life. Yet, on the flip side, it can also be used as justification for the persecution, even torture, of others. Among the most steadfast protocols in the three major world religions, is the Ten Commandments. In some of my writings (mostly in a yet to be published book), I point out the challenges I have with some of the language of scripture. What I have found are hints that much of it may have ...

An audience member recently asked Malcolm Gladwell, the prolific author of books as Blink and The Tipping Point, if he had any ideas for a kinder and gentler society. His idea seemed to stun everyone. He proposed a “don't ask/don't tell” for all. Most will reflexively assume that this applies to asking and telling of one’s sexual orientation. But not so quick. Mr. Gladwell was not talking about that at all. Rather, he suggested that one should not ask what college you attended and should not tell what college they attended. Why? He feels that people will choose schools less for prestige and &... Read More >>
Just one hundred years ago, to live until sixty was a great feat, given that the life expectancy was around fifty-one years for men and fifty-five for women. Now, centenarians—those 100 or older—are the fastest growing segment of the U.S. population. Currently, there are about 53,000 centenarians in the U.S. and, because this group is increasing at the rate of 75,000 people per year, there will be 600,000 centenarians by 2050. That’s right! Ten times as many Americans will be over 100 years old two generations from now. Research of Dr. Mario Martinez—a study of 700 healthy centenarians from all over the world... Read More >>
The definition of kindness is, “the quality of being friendly, generous, and considerate.” In a perfect world this is a quality we would wish to bestow upon ourselves and hope others also possess. But why does it seem so hard. I know what you are probably thinking, “Speak for yourself. It’s not hard for me. I’m a kind person, it’s everyone else who isn’t kind.” Well here in lies the greatest obstacle to creating a world where kindness is the unwritten law of the land; the habit of humanity; the definition of our existence. The obstacle to this is the fact that humankind has relinquished co... Read More >>
