Ed Redard

Co-Founder Ed Redard, MD (1960-2016)

Dr. Ed Redard received his Doctor of Medicine from the UC Davis School of Medicine in 1987. As a family physician for more than 27 years, Dr. Redard will always be remembered for the individual care and consideration he extended to his patients. He treated each patient with respect, offering them his full attention. He took the time to really listen to what was bothering them. In doing so, he showed his patients that they have inherent worth.

Dr. Redard helped his patients recognize the impact emotions can have on physical health and taught them to be mindful of taking care of their own emotional state. He offered his patients a shoulder to cry on and encouraged them to heal themselves with self-help books, articles, and counseling, before prescribing medications. He rarely wore a white doctor’s coat or a tie, preferring a more casual, but still very professional look which also put his patients at ease. If he had it his way, he would have worn shorts to the office.

Ed was a remarkable educator with a passionate curiosity and keen intellect. As the co-founder of Personality Lingo, Dr. Redard embarked on the hero’s journey to uncover a person’s unconscious beliefs and how to align these to influence health and disease. By melding the fields of Jungian Typology, Neuro-Linguistic Programming, Ericksonian Hypnotic Therapies, and Behavioral Psychology he was able to teach others the importance of self-knowledge and help them shift their perceptions and behaviors toward healthier habits and lives. He wrote books, training programs, and articles about human nature and personality. Click here to view Ed Redard, MD obituary
