A Physician’s Perspective on Natural Supplements

A Physician’s Perspective on Natural Supplements

Dec 28, 2011

Hai Jin Kim, MD, a board-certified family physician who practices integrative and holistic primary care will be presenting a webinar on Wednesday, January 18, 2012 at 2PM EST, to discuss her unique insights into the use of natural supplements in healthcare today.

According to Dr. Kim, “After 13 years in practice, the sobering reality of the inadequacies of a pharmaceutical-based medical model for chronic disease set in. This fueled my quest for a more holistic, functional approach to medicine.“

Nearly all medical schools in the United States now offer some type of education in natural medicine. In addition, practitioners (physicians, naturopaths, chiropractors, nurses, etc.) are increasingly open to recommending and/or selling nutritionals, botanicals and homeopathics to their patients. However, even with the increased interest, exposure and education, there are still many areas of confusion for patient and practitioner alike. Almost all practitioners will receive questions from their patients about the use of natural supplements.

Gregg Hake, CEO Energetix said, “Many practitioners recognize the need for a more integrative approach to medicine. At Energetix, our concern is to offer viable alternatives to suppressive therapies. The more we examine, and the closer we look, the more we discover that the body employs a multitude of highly intelligent strategies for dealing with the imbalances and toxins that assault it on a daily basis. Our goal is to support those strategies by offering the practitioner synergistic solutions and a ‘whole person’ approach to health through dietary supplementation.”

In her upcoming webinar, Hai Jin Kim, MD will answer these most frequently asked questions:

• Why are nutritional supplements needed and why do so many patients ask about them?
• What studies are available to support the efficacy of nutritional supplements?
• How are dietary supplements regulated? Are they safe for my patients?
• How do nutraceuticals and homeopathy interact with pharmaceuticals?

If you’d like to submit questions in advance to Dr. Kim for the webinar, please send them to ask@goenergetix.com. During the webinar, you will also have the opportunity to ask questions, as time permits, during the Q&A section at the end.
