Integrative Doctors in Long Island to New York City

January 21st, 2009 · 13 Comments

Have you ever wanted to see a doctor and have him/her prescribe ginger mint tea rather than stool softener?  Or echinacea (immune booster) tincture when you feel a cold coming on rather than wait for it to get worse and then have to resort to antibiotics?  How about cleaning out the colon to improve overall health just by eating differently?

In this day and age where it is more and more difficult to even get health insurance, it is increasingly important to learn how to take care of oneself the natural way by building up immunity and balancing diet and excercise.

This article is a call for help to list all the integrative medicine practitioners in the local NYC area.

We need to be taken care of the right way if and when we need to see a doctor these are the doctors that think outside the box.  Normal MD’s (or allopathic practitioners) did not learn about diet or herbs as medicine in medical school.  But the ones who did, the ones who decided “there’s got to be more than just pill pushing in this medical BUSINESS I am in”, the ones who did….those are the ones that really care about well being of their patients. Not to forget that this is a business, I suggest to everyone to empower yourself with the knowledge of what works for you!  Everyone is different.  The good thing about herbs is that experimentation is not usually dangerous and a little trial and error can lead to a lifetime of healing practices.  I love to grow my own medicine.

“My food is my medicine and my medicine is my food.”

That being said, there are times when that is not enough and I need a medical practitioner to use their professional guidance to help and heal.  I have yet to find that doctor I can count on.  I am determined to see who is out there so I am compiling a list here of doctors in the Long Island/New York City Area who practice integrative medicine, for that is where the evolution must go.  I hope this list can help even one person to find help that can last a lifetime.  If you know of a doctor to add the the list, comment it below or email it to david@ligrows.com

    Dear Madam/Sir,

    My name is Dr Perlman Mira and I am a patient of Leda Green my intuitive therapist from Israel.

    I am a biologist and am studying Hepatitis C virus and HIV-1in Tel Aviv.

    I have known Leda Green for ten years in a very intense therapy session.

    She has helped me and still helping me to reach inner peace of body and soul.

    She can heal and help with any illness, from physical and mental to psychological one.

    She treats her patients by a method she has developed which is very unique and special
    partly because she is healing from far.

    She would love to meet you in person to work together if possible.

    Thanks for your attention, Best, Mira.

    I am looking for an integrated doctor on Long Island, preferably in Nassau county, that takes insurance. I live in Glenwood Landing and have been searching for someone who can help diagnose what is wrong with me. I had a liver abscess in 2008 and have never fully recovered. I am constantly light headed and extremely tired. Does anyone know of an integrated doctor I could try?

  • 12 Dr. Nancy tice // Jan 27, 2013 at 9:22 pm

    I am a psychiatrist and I work with micronutrients for people who do not want to take medication or for people who want to come off psychiatric medication without withdrawal and reducing the likelihood of relapse. I have no financial interest in the companies whose micronutrients I recommend. I am on empire, otherwise I don’t take insurance.
