www.drstandleylive.com I'm Dr. Loretta Standley (pictured left). I am half Cherokee and an enrolled member of the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians (EBCI) in Cherokee, North Carolina, which is why sacred ceremony, rituals and practices resonate with my spirit. Read more about my Cherokee Tribal Citizenship here!

According to the Netcraft Web Server Survey of March 2014, which is a widely respected survey, they received responses from 919,533,715 distinct websites world-wide. That is well over a half billion websites on the planet. Even if half of those sites were inactive and the other half were active, that is still a staggering number. Naturally the goal is to be traffic ranked Number 1. As of this writing (Thursday, March 20, 2014) www.google.com holds the #1 spot both globally and nationally. This website www.drstandley.com has a traffic rank globally of 86,595 and the traffic rank nationally here in the U.S. is 23,018. The rank is calculated using a combination of average daily visitors to this site and pageviews on this site over the past 3 months. The site with the highest combination of visitors and pageviews is ranked #1. It is quite a feat to be in the top 1,000,000 (1 million) websites, much less the top 100,000 sites. Since the goal is to have the lowest number possible, then you can see this is pretty much a rockin' site out of over a half billion websites world-wide. Enjoy!~

If you want to contact me, save yourself some time and do it the old-fashioned way. In other words, just pick up the phone and call me. My number is at the top of every page on this website. E-mail drives me crazy. It leaves out the human element, plus volleying e-mails back and forth is too much work to get a simple question answered. If I answer, you have not interrupted me. If I do not answer, leave your name, phone number and the best time to call and I will return your call. It's as simple as that. Please check out my contact button first before calling with a health question.

After operating a holistic women's clinic for several years and chatting on the radio for several more, I made the giant leap to talk non-stop through the largest media imaginable [a website].

I refer to myself as a MENTATOR and I chuckle when I receive an e-mail saying I spelled "mentor" wrong. This tells me the word "mentator" is doing its thing, which is deliberately making others think by invoking and provoking thought. I am a Gemini and Gemini rules the mind. I take the word mentator from the word "mentation and mental," meaning purposeful and deliberate thinking. After all, the Gemini motto is, "I think, therefore I am" because we Gemini's are the mental sign of the zodiac. I don't even know if "mentator" has even made the dictionary yet, but I am going to use it anyway!

Doctor means teacher, and I believe it is my mission to teach you how to
"become your own best healthcare provider . "

As you can see from my education and experience listed above and below, I have a natural questioning and skeptical mind, which is different from suspicious and fearful distrust. I have a Capricorn Moon which as many know is THE MOST skeptical and sarcastic Moon of the zodiac. The Capricorn Moon sarcastically says, "Yeah right! You have to prove it to me because I think you are full of it." Even though I have always been a holistic health type of individual who never bought into the medical model, my additional education listed below was motivated purely by skepticism. I embrace my skeptical mind because it feeds my intuition, to ask the question regardless of what I am told to believe. As you can see by my degrees above along with my certifications and extended education below, I am a woman grounded in science. Still, my holistic, yet skeptical mind pushed me on to question and learn. Even my education in acupuncture was completely motivated by doubt and skepticism, which led to my Fellowship in the International Academy of Medical Acupuncture. Enjoy the site as I now share with you, everything I've learned and so much more! I BELIEVE! -- Dr. Loretta Standley

EXPERIENTIAL JUNKIE - EDUCATION:

I like to refer to myself as an experiential junkie. In the field of holistic health I have made it part of my mission to experience as much as possible. I feel if I have a personal connection with as many techniques, approaches and methodologies as possible then I can better relate to you and what you might experience. Many times I ended up getting a certification and other times I just went through a routine treatment or program. E.g. - A typical Rolfing program involves 10 sessions, so I experienced all 10 sessions.

I've tried everything from Ayurvedic medicine to Sweat Lodges. My cat Victoria has even experienced a few sessions with an animal communicator, pet massage therapist and she has been treated with homeopathy.

During my educational journey, I spent a brief period of time studying to be a nurse and also a brief period of time studying to be a physical therapist. My heart was obviously with holistic practices.

EXPERENTIAL JUNKIE - WORK:

Before and during college, I raised my daughter through modeling and being a professional clown. No kidding! I did magic shows, made balloon animals and face painted for a living. And when business was slow . . . I worked on a golf course cutting grass.

Hey! Sometimes you have to do exactly what you need to do in order to get to the place that you need to be.

[ back to top ]

EXPERENTIAL JUNKIE - IN MY SPARE TIME:

As an experiential junkie in my spare time, I calm my active life with prayer, yoga, meditation and writing or hanging out with my daughter and my grandson "Big Tree".

I also enjoy spending time with nature through camping, fishing, floating the river, racquetball, playing golf, bike-riding, roller-blading, snorkeling and traveling the country on vision quests with my friends. Being an air sign (Gemini), I've bungy-jumped, para-sailed, hang-glided and parachuted. Still looking to experience a hot-air ballon ride. (Ahhhhhhhhhhh!!!)

I absolutely Love watching any type of sport or competition (I'll even watch Nascar) and rarely miss watching the St. Louis Cardinals, the St. Louis Blues or the St. Louis RAMS play ball.

And music, WOW!!! That's another story. The louder the music, the more I like it and anything from classical to classic rock. Therefore, musicals at the Fabulous Fox, rock concerts and the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra I highly recommend to anyone.

And my favorite past time as an experiential junkie? . . . hanging out with my girlfriends and wondering silly things like "How does ink come out of pen anyway?
