Dr. Robert Blaich is widely regarded as one of the foremost holistic health care experts in the world. His wide range of skills, extensive credentials and numerous awards have earned him the respect of both traditional physicians and alternative practitioners. His integrity, personal warmth and ability to establish safety and rapport have earned him the trust of his patients.
Although Dr. Blaich treats people with a wide range of symptoms, his expertise goes far beyond fixing specific problems and even beyond prevention. His focus is on restoring and optimizing health. When our bodies are functioning properly, our inner pharmacy produces all the chemicals necessary to support maximal physical and emotional well-being and healthy aging. Dr. Blaich addresses many ways in which this built-in system of health malfunctions, and supports the body in recovering from traditional medical interventions when they are necessary.
Most of us are so used to our bodies functioning in a compromised way that we’ve forgotten what real health feels like. For example, sprained ankles are extremely common and when the pain goes away we may think all is well. However, if the injured muscles don’t get turned back on, the result can be a lifetime of malfunction that causes knees and hips to wear out prematurely. Or, many of us have had major or minor head injuries, including birth trauma. This can cause subtle but correctable misalignments of the cranial bones that can result in a wide variety of symptoms, including learning disorders, migraines, hormonal and neurologic disorders, depression and dementia. A third-example is physical or emotional trauma that impairs the inner pharmacy’s ability to produce normal levels of hormones and signalling chemicals called neurotransmitters, resulting in a wide range of symptoms such as anxiety, depression, insomnia, fatigue, poor concentration, even leading to substance abuse. A final example is allergic reactions, often to common foods, which trigger ongoing inflammation anywhere in the body, depending on one’s genes. Identifying the offending the foods and restoring the normal function of the digestive and immune systems allows for enormous iimprovements in health. These are only a few of the conditions that Dr. Blaich commonly treats.
For those who are new to holistic health care, Dr. Blaich’s professional credentials, evident skill, and ability to explain clearly what he’s doing and why create a safe environment in which patients can make a transition from the traditional medical paradigm to a more holistic one that includes the best of both worlds.
