Like any practitioner of holistic medicine, I am used to a fair amount of skepticism. People have always been skeptical of things that are new or that they don't understand. We don't really understand how satellites beam light energy and how we receive a TV picture from outer space. As long as the picture is good, the physics is inconsequential.
The same goes for medicine. Aspirin was on the marketplace for 70 years before anyone - even scientists - knew it worked! That was okay with us, so long as it took away our headache. Once we see the results we begin to believe, even if we don't understand the mechanics behind it. When you break a bone, you go to the orthopedist, who uses his/ her training to realign the fracture. However, it's not the doctor that is "healing" you - it is actually your body, fusing the two broken ends together again. What about when you cut your finger? It's not the Bandaid, but your body's natural, self-healing system that close the wound. Even if a nurse stitches up the injury, that's just to prevent the cut from reopening during the healing process. Medical professionals are just the facilitators; if you understand that, you understand the concept of integrative medicine.
Our body's ability to heal itself is all part of a larger, unseen life force that animates and sustains us. This life force goes by many names - the Chinese call it Chi, the Hindus call it Prana, others call it Energy. No matter the name, this life force is responsible for all healing that goes on inside the body. When the energy is flowing freely, we are in good mental, physical, and spiritual health; when it is obstructed, we experience emotional discomfort that often manifests as physical disease.
This is where I come in. Through many years of training, I have developed the ability to feel the body's "Energy Field". I can read this energy and detect if someone's energy is obstructed, and where in the body these obstructions are located. My intention is to "unblock" this subtle Energy to help the person restore the person to their natural state of health. Right now, you might be ready to ask that question again - but how? The how is a combination of the following techniques that are proven to re-establish the body's healing mechanisms:
This, in effect, is integrative medicine. While traditional medical care focuses on suppressing symptoms with drugs to provide relief, integrative medicine combines alternative medicine with evidence-based madicine to treat the whole person. It focuses on wellness and health, rather than on treating aspecific disease; it also emphasizes the patient-physician relationship.
As always, there are naysayers, those who believe that traditional Western medicine is the only way to go, and that holistic practices compromise that care. They claim that integrative medicine is synonymous with chiropractic or acupuncture, or that it is "woo-woo" (hocus pocus). However, over the past two decades, integrative medicine has gradually gained acceptance by the American medical community. In fact, as far back as the mid-1990's, 80% of family practice physicians expressed an interest in receiving training in acupuncture, hypnotherapy, and massage therapy; at this time, hospitals also began opening integrative medicine clinics. Over 400 hospitals have a chiropractic doctor on staff.
Endorsements from big names such as Deepak Chopra, Andrew Weil, and Prince Charles have also done much to change the perception of integrative medicine. In 1999, The Consortium of Academic Health Centers for Integrative Medicine was founded; by 2013, its members included Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Duke University School of Medicine, Georgetown University School of Medicine, and Mayo Clinic. Most importantly, perhaps, is the decision by the American Board of Physician Specialities, which awards board certification to medical doctors in the U.S., to begin accrediting doctors in integrative medicine.
Even the federal government has acknoledged these practices. In 1991, it established the Office of Alternative Medicine, which in 1998 was re-established as the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM) as one of the National Institutes of Health. These authorities are validating what I and thousands of other practitioners have known for years: That these practices can relieve many hard to treat conditions like fibromyalgia and irritable bowel syndrome, as well as their underlying causes.
For the past 20 years, I have used these methods to treat many well-known celebrities, top CEOs and world-class athletes. I have toured the country treating colleagues, and have participated as a healthcare provider in four Olympic Games. I also created the first U.S. patented multi-vitamin for optimal absorption. My primary concern is for the well-being and quick recovery of my patients. I take pride in being thorough, extremely efficient and aim to improve the quality of life in all those I come in contact with.
