Welcome to the Reverse Alzheimer’s Summit. I’m your host, Dr. Heather Sandison and I am just thrilled to have Dr. Neil Nathan with me here today. Dr. Nathan has been a board certified family physician and is also a founding diplomat of the American Board of Holistic Medicine, now called the American Board of Integrative and Holistic Medicine. For many years he was certified in pain management by the American Academy of Pain Management as well. From the time that he began medical school at the University of Chicago’s Pritzker School of Medicine, it has always been his passion to help as many of his patients as possible. He was never satisfied with sending patients home with the cliche, sorry, we just don’t have answers for you. 

For Dr. Nathan and for his patients, conventional medicine held many answers, but sometimes they just weren’t enough. Starting his 49 year medical career as a family physician, he delivered babies, did minor surgery and worked in the emergency room, providing the most comprehensive care that he could. Over the years, he found that other disciplines, some of which were already included in the scope of conventional medical practice and some of which were considered tangential held the promise of providing useful answers for those patients who did not respond adequately to conventional medical care. 

His practice evolved into something entirely new that did not really have a name and so he called it complex medical problem solving. Over time he found himself working mostly with those unfortunate patients who had not received a clear diagnosis from conventional medicine and were suffering with persistent and debilitating illnesses. These included fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, chronic Lyme disease with its co-infections, autism, and all varieties of chronic pain, amongst many others. Despite his many years of clinical practice, he is still optimistic that he can help every single patient who comes through his door and he aims to do so. He works hard to do so and to help other providers like myself in doing that for the patients who walk through our doors. In that experience, he was motivated to write “Toxic: Heal Your Body” and “Healing Is Possible”. There are unfortunately millions suffering who have not been able to clearly be diagnosed for help by conventional medicine and who are not aware that help is indeed possible. Dr. Nathan, thank you for joining me today.
