Integrative Medicine Has The Potential To Transform Our Concept Of Wellness. What The Future Holdss - The traditional Western approach to healthcare involves management of physicial symptoms as opposed to addressing the source of a patients illness. For example, most patients come away from a doctor visit with a prescription to control their condition, yet they have litte to no understanding of how to attend to the root cause of their health concerns. In responsse to this familiar scenario, a new kind of medicine is emerging in the US that utilizes the best of modern practices, including scientific tests, but also integrates those of ancient Eastern traditions. The end results is Convergence medicine: complementary, organic, roots- and-branches healthcare that gets results where others cannot. Dr. Ahvie Herskowitz is a former Professor and Researcher at Johns Hopkins University and the University of California, San Francisco, and is founder of Anatara Medicine, San Francisco's premier Convergence Medicine Center. He will be in La Paz on March 2nd at the Vista room at Marina de La Paz at 5:00 PM and will give a presentation on his new practice and the amazing results they have had with patients sseeking to optimize their health, in addition to those suffering from chronic and recalcitrant illnesses. For additional information on the practice call Anatara at 415-345-0059.
