Janice Vaughn is not your typical medical doctor. For one thing she's convinced that no matter what ails you, you can recover completely.

"What I really believe is that everybody can be cured of their disease process," she says. "And I mean everybody."

For another thing, Vaughn takes a spiritual approach to health and believes that you are the source of your own healing.

"The power to heal comes from within each one of us," she says. "As a physician everything I do is supplemental to that."

A board certified anesthesiologist for more than 25 years, Vaughn worked in the operating suite at Providence Medical Centers before opening her own practice. Now, from her office close to Washington Square, she focuses on wellness and healthy living.

Empowering our spiritual life is the route to health, she says.  But too often our beliefs about life can get stuck in past pains and limitations. Our life choices flow from fear instead of faith; from anger rather than awe.  She says she's not denying that life is chaotic and people can hurt you. But that cannot stop us from choosing love and happiness.

"I want to let people know that there is a power out there, that you can tap into, and it's as real as the law of gravity.

The daughter of a pastor and one of 15 children, Vaughn is mother to two daughters, both physicians, and a son who is an attorney. They did well because they believed in themselves, she says.

 "Reach for the highest star. If you get a No, well, you won't die from No."

Dr. Janice Vaughn will speak as part of the African American Chamber of Commerce After Hours Program: 6:30p.m. -9 p.m. May 14, at the Ambridge Event Center, 1333 N.E. Martin Luther King Blvd.
