Her passion and thirst for new learning and deep commitment to the health of humanity and the planet reflects her life of raising consciousness and practicing healing from numerous approaches: advocate and pioneer in integrative medicine; indigenous medicine; leader in environmental efforts; and regular women's empowerment and dreaming as a spiritual practice focused on raising consciousness.

After graduating with high honors from the University of Nebraska Medical School, Dr. Randall completed an internal medicine residency and gastroenterology fellowship at University of California, Los Angeles, hospitals and clinics. From 1988–94, while associate professor of medicine at UCLA, she cofounded the first integrative medicine studies program in the country linked to a university's medical school. She also served as the director of the Medical Procedures Unit for the West Los Angeles Veterans Administration hospital. After serving her medical clerkship as the doctor on an American Indian reservation, Dr. Randall's long interest in American Indian and non-conventional forms of medicine, energy healing, dreamwork and spirituality also blossomed.

She integrated multiple modalities in the second half of the 1990s. She was coproducer and participant of The Healing Connection, a pilot research project and ground-breaking UCLA study on the integration of Ayurvedic, Chinese, American Indian and Western medicine. She also was a producer for Heaven Fire Productions and appeared twice on NBC's The Other Side to discuss holistic medicine. She served as the integrative and holistic medicine co-director of the Malibu Health and Rehabilitation Center, director of integrative health for Miraval Life in Balance, and executive director of guest services at Rancho La Puerta, a health and wellness destination spa in Tecate, Mexico.

Larry Dossey, MD, New York Times bestselling author of One Mind, Healing Beyond the Body, Reinventing Medicine and Healing Words

"In 2017, I found myself in a very physically compromised and frightening time of my life. I had the good fortune to meet the most gifted, kind, knowledgeable and, above all, understanding and honest doctor I have ever spoken to. Dr. Randall literally was an angel sent to me. She has taken care of and looks after my health issues with more compassion and love than I could have ever imagined! She has a true understanding, knowledge and love of the alternative healing practices which is the path I have chosen. I will forever be grateful to her and she is in my prayers every day."

Olivia Hussey-Eisley, Golden Globe-award winning actress, Romeo and Juliet; author, The Girl in the Window

"Gayle has been able to present the multiple aspects of integrative and functional medicine in a semi-autobiographical and exciting way and weave them into a truly holistic manifesto. I'm not aware of another book that has been able to accomplish this task as well as Soul Doctoring. Going through the 25 chapters is not only a journey through Gayle's own life, full of fascinating personal and patient anecdotes, but a comprehensive education of the interested reader about the many dimensions of holistic health and wellness from gut to brain health, and from dreams to planetary health."

Emeran A. Mayer, MD, New York Times bestselling author, The Mind-Gut Connection: How the Hidden Conversation Within Our Bodies Impacts Our Mood, Our Choices, and Our Overall Health; Distinguished Research Professor of Medicine, G. Oppenheimer Center for Neurobiology of Stress & Resilience

"Over the many years as I have followed Dr. Randall's doctoring abilities, I have looked on in amazement at her healing skills. How quickly she finds solutions to patient needs and the chosen designs that she uses for her holistic approaches toward healing, as if the Universe is whispering in her ear. Is Dr. Randall's healing knowingness a genetic gift? Who can know? Perhaps, the Great Spirit loaned her to us so she could teach us how to heal. I recommend Soul Doctoring. It is transformative."

Joseph Rael, American Indian Tiwa and Southern Ute, Sundance chief, teacher and author of Being and Vibration, Beautiful Painted Arrow: Stories and Teachings from Native American Tradition (Earth Quest), House of Shattering Light: Life as an American Indian Mystic and Tracks of Dancing Light

"Dr. Gayle Randall is an absolute one of a kind being and soul, doing so many things for myself and my family, as well as all of mankind in general, I couldn't be more grateful to have her in our lives really. Anyone who cares about their health and well-being, should do themselves a favor, by reading this incredible book, and make themselves aware of this brilliant and comforting woman."

India Eisley, actress, The Secret Life of the American Teenager; star, My Sweet Audrina

"Across the world, people are more aware and devoted to the body rather than to their souls. Unfortunately, the awareness and knowledge about the soul is very low. One has to know about the soul before treating it. Dr. Randall is actively contributing in distributing health and knowledge to people. She has the light to get the information out, and her patients are lucky to have her. I am so happy she has written Soul Doctoring."

Dr. P. N. Awasthi, Ayurvedic medicine master, founder and director, Integrative Medicine Association (in India since 1952)

"Gayle Madeleine Randall, MD is an extraordinary person who has played many roles in my life: physician, teacher, student, colleague, and friend. Her generosity in sharing her story with the world through Soul Doctoring is immeasurable. Read it. You'll recognize pieces of your own growth-path, and you'll be inspired to stretch to your own fullest potential. Without giving advice, she advises wisely that each of us is born to deliver a unique message of love to the world."

Connie Kaplan, author, The Woman's Book of Dreams, Dreams are Letters from the Soul and The Invisible Garment The Emergence of a New Cosmology

"Gayle Madeleine Randall is generous and wise with her counsel, which begins with a distinguished background in mainstream medicine and then draws on her knowledge of the holistic and Native American traditions. I find it especially important that her philosophy on nutrition is sound and healthy, aimed at longevity and preventing or combating disease, rather than at quick and temporary weight loss. Her advice and encouragement have been invaluable to me."
