Dr. Gisele

Good health is a state of optimal physical, mental and emotional well-being that enables us to respond appropriately to all kinds of stressors ,while maintaining a state of internal equilibrium. It goes beyond the absence of acute or chronic illness. The source of the disease can be any challenge to the body which creates disharmony, be it environmental, physical, and /or emotional. Unfortunately, most people pay little attention to their state of health until it is compromised.

PMS, Indigestion, IBS, Constipation, Allergies, Insomnia, Headaches, Low Back pain, recurrent bouts of the Common Cold and Influenza are all examples of minor illnesses, the symptoms of which we routinely suppress with OTC medications. And the list of diseases goes on and on. This approach not only fails to correct the underlying imbalance, but can create further disharmony as most, if not all of these drugs do have side effects.
