Dr Jason Studying Integrated Medicine

December 10, 2013



This month Dr. Jason started his first course from the College of Integrative Veterinary Therapies. Today he was learning about herbal medicine, with a warm fire and his two dogs to keep him company.

Over the past year, Jason has been expanding his scope of practice to include more and more nutritional counseling and therapy. His interest developed when a few close members of his family were having health problems last year, and got better thanks to the cooperative efforts of traditional medicine and natural therapies. Jason started to see how his own practice was becoming more integrative, and realized that there were more and more options for treatment that could complement his current practice.

So Jason started researching, and experimenting. His own cat, Haatim, has seen a remarkable improvement with a comprehensive diet change and added probiotics. His older dog Maggie has been helped hugely in her senior years by additions of glucosamine, green lipped mussels, omega-3 supplements, and traditional anti-inflammatories.

Integrative medicine is not about picking sides... It's about getting to the root of illness and using all appropriate evidence based treatments from both traditional and natural medicine. So as our clinic is being built, Dr. Jason is not only preparing with architectural plans and picking surgical equipment. He'll also be learning more about herbal medicine and complementary therapies.

Happy studying, Jason!
