Leora Barak works with Medical Doctors, Naturopathic Doctors and other healthcare practitioners who have chosen to incorporate Holistic Nutrition into their patients' treatment plan. This is part of an integrative approach to health, an approach which combines, or integrates, the best of conventional and alternative methods while embracing all forms of healing which are safe and effective.
Medical doctors are finding that by incorporating dietary modifications, natural supplements and simple lifestyle changes into current conventional treatment, does not only encourage their patients to take a more active role in their own healing but also helps them achieve very positive results. This healing-oriented approach takes into account the whole person (body, mind and spirit) and all aspects of the person's lifestyle. It is based on the understanding that our bodies are a communication system and our symptoms are the body’s attempt at communicating what is out of balance, and what is needed for effective healing.
While considering the healthcare practitioner's recommendations, Leora will follow through with a detailed Health Plan based on the patient's needs, and complementary to his/her treatment plan. Throughout treatment, Leora will maintain contact with the healthcare professional and at the same time encourage the patient to take part in his/her own healing process. This process basically engages both patient and practitioners in a therapeutic partnership.
If you are an MD, ND, OT, PT, etc., whose patients are struggling with debilitating chronic conditions such as crohn's, colitis, rheumatoid arthritis, or hypertension, hypoglycemia, IBS, anxiety, sustainable weight loss, etc, Leora will be pleased to establish a "partnership in health" and support your patients every step of the way on their road to optimal health.
