Holistic Medicine or “Integrative Medicine” combines the best of conventional modern medicine with traditional ancient medicine, emphasizing education and lifestyle for natural healing. At at least 80% of current disease is related to stress and lifestyle, deficiencies and toxicities, while genes only account for 20% of disease, at most*.

Optimal Health refers to a condition of wellness or fitness, with the capacity to handle stressors (such as infections and traumas) and to live a long, creative, loving, energetic life without medications or disability.

* Identical twins can have opposite health profiles based on lifestyle and epigenes. Epigenes are molecules that modulate gene expression and are passed from generation to generation; if the genes are the hardware, the epigenes are the software. The health and stressors of a parent affects their child, grandchild and later generations apart from the genes themselves.
