Dr. Elson Haas’ NEW (Natural, Eastern and Western medicines) approach of integrative, holistic and functional medicine is built on restoring proper body physiology, and supporting healthy cells and tissues in order to heal. It includes elimination diets and detoxification practices. Dr. Elson Haas has practiced this philosophy for more than 30 years, in addition to his work with integrative family medicine, incorporating these philosophies within an insurance model at the Preventive Medical Center of Marin in San Rafael, CA, that he founded in 1984. He and the extensive team of staff and practitioners provide care to their immediate community as well as patients from around the globe.I Want to Improve My Health
Dr. Elson Haas' treatment programs blend concepts and practices from traditional Chinese medicine and the Barefoot Doctors. They are designed to keep people healthy by staying in tune with nature and her cycles, examining health from a lifestyle perspective before administering medicines. Dr. Elson Haas teaches that, “How we look and feel is mainly a result of how we live!” His first book, Staying Healthy With the Seasons, integrates Eastern and Western medicine with natural healing modalities of nutrition, fitness and alignment with the seasons. It also helps people understand the Chinese Five Elements and their associations of fire, earth, metal (air), water and Wood. NEW and integrative medicine comes with a whole new philosophy of understanding the body and the causes of ill health. Addressing and correcting these causes, which can often be attributed to lifestyle, are crucial for this new era of healthy medicine.

Finally, they need a manual that illustrates answers to questions such as, “How do I care for this one and only body I was given at birth?” The basics of good health are described in the Five Keys To Staying Healthy.Improving My Child’s Health
