I practice what I call Good Medicine, combining the best of modern contemporary medicine with the best of alternative and complementary medicines. It blends the knowledge we’ve gained from science with wisdom of ancient healing traditions. I use and recommend conventional medicine (drugs and surgery) when appropriate, but I also embrace complementary approaches, e.g. Chinese medicine, Nutritional medicine, Herbal medicine, bodywork, yoga and meditation, etc. I may use different therapeutic techniques, but I always take into account the patient’s belief systems, attitudes, feelings, social relationships, environment, patterns of eating, working, resting, sleeping and exercising and never lose sight of the body’s ability to heal itself

I believe many complex factors interact to cause disease and my method of both looking for the cause and of treatment is therefore a multi-factorial one, never losing sight of the body’s innate ability to heal itself.

And finally, instead of suppressing symptoms with drugs, which is often like putting on a band aid masking the problem, I look for the underlying imbalances causing these symptoms or I try to uncover the root causes of the dysfunctions.

In this section, you will find blogs on different medical systems and the way view health and disease.
