On November 1st, Dr. Elson gave two presentations at the medical conference entitled The Science & Clinical Application of Integrative Holistic Medicine co-sponsored by the American Board of Integrative Holistic Medicine. It was attended by about 500 physicians, most of them relatively new to integrative and preventive medicine.
The first presentation was to the entire audience on eating healthy with the seasons, with the simple, nutritional back-to-nature message he has been sharing for 30+ years.
Then he gave a three-hour intensive to 150 interested docs who signed up for this program on detox and elimination diets.
For him, the first level of care for many patients can be eliminating potential health-undermining habits and observe how people feel, what symptoms and problems go away, and then re-testing what happens when they’re reintroduced back into the diet.
He believes this is a helpful approach for many practitioners to support their patients, and he plans to continue this work with physicians over the coming years.
