Martin H. Ehrlich MD, MPH, LAc

“Through my personal experience I have learned that healing is a process of transformation that involves the whole person - spirit, mind, emotions and body. I have seen the body’s capacity to heal and understand the role of the physician to be one who facilitates that innate capacity. In my work in the hospital I have witnessed the strengths and limitations of conventional medicine in treating many common problems, especially many of the chronic problems seen in the office setting. At the same time, I have found nutrition, exercise and other complementary therapies to be more effective, better tolerated and beneficial for long term health. As a result, I focus on natural, nontoxic and less invasive therapies to correct underlying imbalances and to promote self healing. Working together with my patients, we develop an individualized plan utilizing a wide range of therapeutic approaches from conventional, complementary and traditional systems.”
