As we understand more about our connectedness and our uniqueness, we can learn to manifest our optimal health and deepest potential.

What is NEW Medicine?

NEW Medicine is a unique combination of Natural, Eastern and Western approaches to optimal health developed and refined over the last 40 years by pioneering integrative physician Elson Haas MD.

The “W” of NEW – Western Medicine

This is the form of medicine that we are familiar with in the US and most modern societies. It has brought unprecedented benefits in diagnosis and treatment for many diseases that have plagued humankind for centuries. Yet, like many other scientific advances, it has its limts and its dangers.

5 Keys and 5 Elements

My studies of the 5 Elements in Traditional Chinese Medicine inspired me to create The 5 Keys to Staying Healthy - a simple, practical way for you to begin actually improving your health day by day rather than just waiting to get sick before you act.

Staying Healthy with New Medicine

Staying Healthy with NEW Medicine presents the integration of Natural, Eastern, and Western medicines that offers a clearer insight into many crucial factors affecting health and healing than any one system does alone. Moving people into the positive aspects of the ‘Disease-Health Continuum’ with better energy, vitality and creativity, helping to create positive actions for our planet and for human beings in general. The chapter called “Understanding Causes” is especially important for those interested in improving their wellbeing and experiencing ‘Healthy Aging’. And The 5 Keys to Staying Healthy are developed more deeply in Chapter 3. [button button="Show me more" url="/products/"]
