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.

Whether you know it or not, the fight or flight reaction controls much of your behavior and reactions.

To me, Einstein not only was able to predict that enormous energy existed beyond our level of awareness, but he was also able to summarize the human condition in a few words. Here are 15 quotes that have greatly influenced my life. I hope you find them equally as powerful. “My religion consists of a humble admiration of the illimitable superior spirit who reveals himself in the slight details we are able to perceive with our frail and feeble mind.” “I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination.
