“If I were to choose one therapy that works finest above all others, it would be to listen. All patients deserve to have their health concerns heard and respected by a
knowledgable doctor. In addition, the body speaks clearly when it is imbalanced, from a whisper of mild concern, to a scream of serious illness.”
