From Dr. Shehadeh desk:
With easy access to online information and the vast number of online resources, the search for real answers to our medical problems has been more confusing than ever before. Seeking adequate medical care in today’s world should not be complicated. I have seen so many patients searching for alternative options but settling for the conventional medicine they have learned to live with. Most modern diseases can be prevented by making changes in our food choices, behaviors, and lifestyle. In some cases, disease processes can also be reversed.
Our body works in synchrony 24/7 and has the remarkable ability of self-healing and autoregulation. The balance in our metabolism is intrinsically connected with all our organs and systems (immune, excretory, lymphatic, circulatory, gastrointestinal, neurological, musculoskeletal) and all these systems form an interconnected web which is controlled by our hormones, neurotransmitters, and cellular pathways.
I firmly believe that there is no better prevention than education and that an educated patient is better equipped to have a healthier and happier life. I am committed and motivated to assist you and guide you towards that goal and help you manage your medical problems and/or symptoms. All this can be accomplished with lifestyle changes. From making better food choices to exercising more, the goal is to put you in charge of your own health so you can live longer, with more energy and with less medications. Let’s start this journey together.
