Discover the Difference

Sometimes, I find that when people ask me what it is that I do that is “so different” from mainstream healthcare or even other health practitioners, I have a difficult time trying to fit it into a neat little box…

You see, my own personal struggle to get well spanned over 3 decades and took me literally all over the world in search of the elusive “cure.”

Functional Medicine Boston

What is the Best Form of Medicine?

This unwavering search for the truth of what I think real health care should look like actually forced me to go off the grid a bit. I personally believe that strictly following one dogmatic viewpoint of a particular form of medicine is never in the best interest of the patient or client.

Therefore, I can’t, in all honesty, say I only practice Functional Medicine, Naturopathic Medicine, Orthomolecular Medicine, Ayurvedic Medicine, Traditional Chinese Medicine, etc.

After 18+ years of study, over 3,000 thousand books of research, and having practiced in clinics all over the world, I can assure you that each form of medicine has real merit to it… And that is why ALL forms must be used.

(The “Art of Medicine” comes in knowing when to apply which form at what time.)

Putting “Care” Back in Health Care

There can be no ego in medicine. It should never be a “my form of treatment is better than your form of treatment…” Unfortunately, though, this is what I see all the time and it is not in the best interest of the person we are caring for.

Shouldn’t there be some form of caring in health care? Shouldn’t we care about the people that come to see us looking for answers to oftentimes very debilitating diseases or health conditions?

If we remove our egos and always ask, “what is best for this particular person at this time,” then I believe we’ll come up with the proper answer (given the practitioner has an open mind and a wide education base).

If this is not the in-depth, concrete answer you’re looking for in terms of how I practice, I would like to direct you towards a piece that was written up on Functional Medicine and how it closely approximates how I care for each wellness client and help them get well again and rebalance their body.

(See if you can pick out the differences between finding the true, underlying root causes versus treating the symptoms.)
