Authentic Ayurvedic medicine treatments, information, and research
"Whereas conventional allopathic medicine is largely occupied with the suppression of unpleasant and distressing symptoms, Ayurveda is more directed at correcting the underlying causes and contributory factors. The two medical paradigms if appropriately and wisely implemented can truly complement each other. By combining both medical systems in an integrative approach, the probability of cure is increased."
The above statements which I wrote more than 30 years ago, still epitomize my personal philosophy--now supported by many years of medical study and experience. For centuries, Ayurveda has been re-shaping what wellness looks like through a holistic perspective, focusing on the mind and body as one and inseparable. For more than thirty years, I have offered evidence-based natural interventions for the prevention and recovery from disease in a safe, comfortable environment. Ayurvedic medical consultations aim to identify underlying causes of illness rather than just managing the symptoms. These medical consultations are a different approach to looking at the whole person in an in-depth way, considering your dietary and family history, environmental and lifestyle factors, interpersonal relationships, as well as stressors at home or work. I spend time with you to learn about your personal and medical histories and develop an individualized care plan often made in consultation with your primary care doctor.
I am pleased to announce that after 31 years, The Gerson Institute of Ayurvedic Medicine (GIAM) has shifted its main offices and facilities to Jupiter/West Palm Beach, Florida. I have accepted the appointment of Medical Director of Integrative Medicine, Division of Education and Research at Jupiter Medical Center. It is here that I have the main clinical office for my Ayurvedic Medicine practice.
