The physician acts as a coach or guide to empower the patient and the patient’s family to take personal responsibility for each member's health. A continuing dialog between the team partners allows the patient to become fully informed about his or her health, options for treatment, and the risks and benefits of those options. At Whole Health Solutions, we have evolved from "doctor-patient" to both being full Partners in your health.
We utilize a combination of traditional allopathic medical approaches, cross-cultural healing modalities, state-of-the-art metabolic/genomic therapies, and dietary/lifestyle modifications to treat a wide variety of chronic illnesses. We also offer personalized health maintenance programs for people who are basically healthy and want to optimize health or prevent disease.
The basic principles of our approach include:
□ Biochemical Individuality: biochemical make-up is based upon genetic and environmental factors unique to the individual.
□ Patient-centered versus disease-centered. We must know the person who has the disease, rather than just which disease a person has.
□ Health is a dynamic balance of internal and external factors. What is the individual environment that has provided a foothold for this disease? How do we make that environment less able to support dysfunction, and better able to flourish harmoniously?
□ A web-like interconnection of physiological factors at both cellular and systemic levels precede, trigger and promote both health and disease.
□ Health as a positive vitality – not merely the absence of disease. Rather than cover-up symptoms, we aim to help you achieve optimum healthy life experience
□ Promotion of organ reserve. Having reserve capacity in your organs allows them to respond to stress and recover quickly. Not just intended to prolong your lifespan, this helps to increase your “healthspan” –the number of active healthy years.
□ We educate you to take charge of your own health, heal yourself, and maintain a healthy lifestyle so that you can spend less time in doctor’s offices, and more time living your life!

Individualized plans promote integrated health and healing for each patient by incorporating physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual therapies. The partners develop a health-promotion plan that focuses on wholeness and health rather than symptoms or disease "labels". More than "quick fixes" that may suppress symptoms or distract from the deeper issues, health-promotion solutions will aim for healing the entire person on all
