May 11, 2012 — Andrew Weil, MD, the father of integrative medicine and botanist by training, believes that nature holds many of the answers for leading healthier and richer lives.
Using nature as a template, he has developed, along with his colleague and Scientific Advisor, Dr. Tieraona Low Dog and the team at Innate Response, a leading line of professional nutritional supplements, a seasonal approach for maintaining health and wellness.
“Just as our dietary choices should be influenced by seasonal changes — more fruit in summer, for example, and more root vegetables in winter — so should our choices of dietary supplements and natural remedies,” said Weil. “Our unique Seasonal Therapeutics program makes it easy, providing patients with formulations tailored to the particular needs of their body in each season of the year.”
Weil’s Seasonal Therapeutics is marketed as the first program of its kind in the integrative healthcare industry, blending science and integrative medicine together with the change of the seasons. It focuses on achieving emotional wellness through lifestyle, behavioral and dietary changes based on an array of holistic, and modern therapies and the time of year.
“We feel that there is a missing piece in healthcare, that it’s not just about what dietary changes or nutritional supplements to recommend, but also when to recommend them.” says newly appointed Director of Product Development of Innate Response Formulas, Dr. Adam Killpartrick. “We are incredibly passionate about education and thrilled to be able to work with Weil and Dr. Low Dog to share this powerful message. Our aim is to empower practitioners with outstanding programs and products so they can better serve their patients and change lives.”
“The long term consequences of stress and modern lifestyle have had a serious impact on our physical and emotional health. We no longer live, eat or sleep in harmony with our environment, ” says Low Dog. “By incorporating and aligning a truly integrative program, including stress management, healthy nutrition and the appropriate use of dietary supplements, we can provide a health program that supports our body’s innate response as we move through the seasons of our lives.”
To launch this initiative, they have announced the Seasonal Therapeutics seminar series for healthcare practitioners that uses an evidence-based, nature-oriented, seasonal approach to wellness. This series will be presented by Low Dog.
