I am a big proponent of health education and empowering individuals to be their own health advocates. I take on a holistic approach when it comes to patient care. It is essential to balance physical, mental, and spiritual to have complete health. “Healing is a natural restorative process,  which has its  source in the Supreme Being and can be fostered by restorative, spiritual, physical emotional and social influences in the human person and the environment” (Meehan 2003).

A practice I work for has an emphasis on integrative/regenerative medicine. It is owned by an MD specializing in a holistic approach  to treating patients. …..please click the purchase button to access the solution at $5
