Hyla Cass, M.D.
The concept of doctor as authority figure is rapidly being replaced with a more progressive view of doctor as health partner. We now have an opportunity to help heal ourselves, our health care system, our communities, and ultimately, our planet by:
- Treating the whole person – mind, body, spirit, and environment.
- Determining the deepest root causes of symptoms, using scientific lab testing if needed.
- Apply a continuum of treatments, always beginning with the safest and most nautural as possible.
Dr Hyla Cass is one of the country’s foremost authors and speakers on the subject of integrative medicine. A former Assistant Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at UCLA School of Medicine, she has incorporated nutrition and natural health techniques into her practice for more than 20 years.
