The human body has the wisdom to heal itself if given the proper support. By listening to the patient and learning his or her story, the patient and I enter into a discovery process, which leads to customized treatments that address the individual patient's unique needs, promoting health as a positive vitality, beyond just the absence of disease.
In my patient-center care approach, I take in consideration the complex web of interactions between the patient's history, physiology, and lifestyle that can lead to illness. The unique genetic makeup of each patient is considered, along with both internal (mind, body and spirit) and external (physical and social environment) factors that affect total functioning. My patients and I become partners in healing, which allows me to meet all of their health issues that are either affecting them now or are likely to impact them in the future.
I honor each patient's preferences. I believe in the necessity of teaching my patients about their medical condition and therapeutic options. I strive to empower every patient to make appropriate lifestyle changes that are essential to their future well-being.
I specialized in the prevention and treatment of chronic, complex disorders, by identifying and addressing their causes rather than suppressing symptoms. I correct the imbalances through nutrition, therapeutic diets, botanical medicines, dietary supplements, detoxification programs, acupuncture, laser therapy, specific exercises, or stress-management techniques. These natural strategies are carefully integrated with standard conventional medical protocols. This integrative holistic approach has high likelihood of success with minimal side effects.
