Love & Compassion Integrative Health and Healing

Our Approach



Why root cause treatment is necessary?

When you have a condition, whether physical, mental, or emotional, you and your health care providers will first focus on treating the symptoms and the condition, so as to restore your health and feel better again.

The problem is that simply treating the condition may not necessarily be enough to sustain your health. Especially in cases of chronic conditions, you may repeat a cycle of healing and sickness, often developing new additional conditions, and you begin to wonder why you are not yet healed.

If there is anything that makes you sick, whether recurrent or various conditions, it is the “root cause” that must be identified and treated. Simply treating conditions and symptoms is often not enough for sustained health. At our Center, we believe that identifying and treating the root cause leads to real healing and this is what we offer for your total well-being.

Why integrative therapies are effective?

Our physical body and the mind are intelligent and inter-connected.  We have various innate control mechanisms, including the autonomic nervous system that regulates organ functions, which are directly related to the emotional state. While modern medicine has become more and more specialized, and scrutinizes physiological problems in a microscopic manner, it often loses sight of who we are as an integrated whole, and rather sees us as mechanistic parts like gears in a machine.

Many of you may suffer from multiple conditions which have taken over different systems of your health such as: GI, GYN, pains, recurrent infections, and so on. You are usually sent to specialists by your primary care doctor to scrutinize your illnesses as separate parts of a broken machine. As a result, you are likely to end up receiving various medications that may interact each other or cause side effects that may develop even more symptoms. This is because modern medicine has often forgotten the basic principle of treating the whole, rather than just the parts.

At our Center, we will work with you as a whole person. Your physical conditions, emotional state, daily stress, dietary pattern, and life style are all relevant to your health. Each of these components of your life affects all the other areas. We will address and treat the root cause with our unique 7 healing tools.


Restorative vs. Transformational

Whether physical, mental, emotional or spiritual, there are two types of healing: restorative and transformational. “Restorative healing” aims to restore health by treating the condition, therefore the condition may disappear, but the improved condition of health may not be sustainable. You may become ill again with the same or another condition.

Our “Transformational Healing” is totally different. When we address the root cause with our 7 Healing Tools, the core inside you will shift. We call it awakening. Imagine that your body has been screaming for help, but you did not hear or listen to the inner voice or ignored it intentionally or unintentionally.

Identifying the root cause is akin to finally hearing the inner voice - that silent cry which arises as emotional or physical pain or discomfort.  This then causes you to feel awakened, connected, and activated so that your true needs and innate wellbeing can be honored. This process is very difficult to explain in words, but many of our patients have experienced this unique moment of awakening through a physical response or emotional shift as a result of our treatment. This is true healing.

Our “Transformational Healing” will connect your physical body and the mind, and bring them together in a higher state of consciousness. Something at the your deepest level of Self will shift and change. As a result of this shift, you don’t just recover from a condition, but the shift transforms your health, your perception to your life, your overall wellbeing, and the life-style changes needed to support this new and improved Self will become easier to maintain. From this shift, you then overcome the repetitive cycle of illness.
