Susan Farkas is pasionate about Integrative Medicine. A priority of the IM practitioner is to inspire and empower the patient to maximize the body’s innate ability to heal itself, thru the use of plant base foods as medicine, dietary supplements, exercise, meditation, emotional support, guided imagery, to name a few. This is the way the patient will connect more with the healing and less with disease, taking control over his recovery. Strong scientific evidence shows that patients actively engaged in their recovery have a stronger and healthier journey and therefore a better chance of survival. Once the IM practitioner awakens the inner healer in their patient, he will have an advantage in the battlefield.
As a IM practitioner is crucial to provide education and tools to support people who want to take actions and re-gain control of their health in order to improve their quality of live. We have to look at the conventional care plan together with treatments that aren’t traditionally part of that plan, but that ultimately can improve their lives.
