The medical choices that we have today can be bewildering. They include allopathic medicine, also known as Western medicine, Eastern medicine, and alternative or natural/holistic medicine. Also our choice of health practitioners has an even larger number of options. We can go to naturopaths, acupuncturists, osteopaths, or MDs. We can look up symptoms on the Internet and attempt to self-diagnose from countless illnesses and diseases. The choices are multitudinous. So how do we wade through the variety of options? Elson Haas, M.D. is dedicated to empowering each of us with the knowledge and resources we need to make the best choices for our health. He says, “I want to engage with people; I like to keep people out of hospitals, out of surgery, and using the least medicines. What I do as an integrative practitioner is to work with multiple systems. I want the simplest, most effective, and safest thing for people to use and a lot of times that’s natural remedies over and above drugs.” In this deep dialogue Haas describes three systems of medicine – Natural Medicine, Eastern Medicine, Western Medicine – and when each may be appropriate to support our best health.
