Aniston reveals her struggle with chronic insomnia and letting herself go for her role in Cake.
I have a hard time sleeping. Sleep is a tough one for me.

Oz hits back at his critics and vows to continue exploring alternative routes to healing.
I have spent my entire career searching for ways to lessen the suffering of my patients. The best and safest paths have generally been the traditions of conventional medicine. They are tried and true, well funded, and fast. But there are other routes to healing that offer wisdom as well, so I have been willing to explore alternative routes to healing and share any wisdom that can be gathered.
My exploration of alternative medicine has never been intended to take the place of conventional medicine, but rather as additive. Critics often imply that any exploration of alternative methods means abandoning conventional approaches. It does not. In fact, many institutions like mine use the names “complementary” or “integrative” medicine, which is also appropriate.
I know I have irritated some potential allies, No matter our disagreements, freedom of speech is the most fundamental right we have as Americans… We will not be silenced. We’re not going anywhere.
