It has long been said that practicing medicine is an art. In much of today’s western medical practice the art has been lost to protocols and treatment flow charts. The art, however, is where the power lies. The art to see each person as an individual, to recognize the life factors and experience that have lead them to where they are now, sitting across from me. Through my practice I have learned to honor each person and to understand that their story holds so much of the critical information needed to help break through the layers of disease that surrounds who they really are.
Utilizing this approach allows only targeted supplements, medications, and interventions to be used in order to restore or support function. This prevents the unfortunate experience many have had, where they are asked to pay for and take a large quantity of supplements and/or medications or change an excessive amount of their lifestyle in a short period of time. While affecting real change does require work and often lifestyle change, the changes that can be integrated are different for each person and each circumstance. While this may seem slow at times, the effects are lasting and life giving. There in lies the goal of my approach to medicine: To compassionately meet people where they are at, affect real change, and help them get their life back.
