Dr. Askari's Journey to Holistic Medicine
"In conventional medical school I was trained to see my patients and their 'disease' as physical entities. Fortunately I had the opportunity to travel to Africa and witness the power of healing by attending to the spirit and mind as well as the physical being. As I explored different ideas and opened myself to possible alternatives, it became easy to see the value of integrating what I learned in Medical School with safe natural therapies such as herbal medicine, homeopathy, energy healing, acupuncture, and spiritual modalities. With this new way of thinking, I have made a transition into holistic medicine for the benefit of my patients and myself. Healing and achieving wellness is an on-going journey; we never stop healing, but merely reach different levels. In our practice we are honored to take this journey with each and every one of our patients to achieve healing at a higher level."
