our practice philosophy
Health Is More than Just Being Free from Illness, It is a State of Well-Being and Wholeness.
My philosophy of good health can be summed up by the borrowed phrase, “health is not a destination, but rather a journey.” This belief stems from the training I received in Primary Care Medicine at Montefiore Medical Center in New York City in the 1990s.
My training imparted to me a sense that health is more than just biology. Most medical training focuses on the “biomedical model.” The biomedical model posits that disease is a deviation from the normal function by means of developmental anomalies, or by acquired conditions such as injury, infection, etc. I believe that is only part of the story in understanding health and disease.
