Caspar Szulc is the co-founder of the New York Center for Innovative Medicine. He is known as the healing entrepreneur. He is dedicated to transforming healthcare through comprehensive and personalized approaches. He joined us to discuss integrative medicine on Episode 4 of Ditch the Quick Fix. You can find the episode here.
Caspar was exposed to different therapies from around the world from a young age.
His father, Dr. Thomas Szulc, MD, an anesthesiologist, became frustrated with the outcome of his patients and decided to explore what else was out there. He traveled the world with his family in search of therapies that would improve the outcome of his patients. Caspar even served as a test case for some of the therapies his father came across. So Caspar saw first hand how well integrative medicine worked.
That's where the The New York Center for Innovative Medicine was born.
Today, they offer advanced medical options and therapies from around the world that are personalized and tailored for your underlying dysfunctions.
In addition to helping patients, they educate health practitioners and provide them with the proper tools and knowledge to practice advanced biological medicine.
Caspar described Integrative medicine at the center, “Is a comprehensive, healing-oriented approach to medicine that takes into account the whole person. It makes use of any available therapies that can bring the best outcome for the patient.”
Innovative Medicine brings together different modalities in a more well-coordinated fashion among the various providers and institutions providing care to a patient.
Every approach has its time and place in the healing of a patient. For instance, conventional medicine has its place, but it isn't everything, especially when dealing with chronic conditions and diseases.
"We keep gravitating towards simple, quick fixes, and we know that's not going to be the best thing" Damon Ernst on avoiding the quick fixes to reach ultimate health.
Innovative medicine aims to find the perfect balance between conventional therapies, functional medicine, psycho-emotional therapies, energy healing, and spiritual healing.
Such a balanced approach proposes the best treatment for the patient in a highly personalized manner that ensures long-term health.
Remember, we don't want to treat symptoms. We want to diagnose the problem, get to the root cause, and then address it.
Innovative medicine, therefore, is a unique medical approach to healing and maintaining health. It transcends limitations that have held us back and those that have made disease and swallowing a handful of pills the norm.
"Why do you have that diagnosis? Let's get to the root cause and address that" Caspar Szulc on getting to the root cause of an illness rather than managing symptoms.
To better understand the innovative medicine approach, we need first to understand our body's ability to heal and recover.
The body has an amazing, almost miraculous, self-healing mechanism. The problem is that we underestimate this ability so much and even go ahead to inhibit it.
In innovative medicine, we give the body everything it needs to function as it should, leading to self-healing. This can be energy healing through approaches such as PEMF or through oxidative therapies such as ozone therapy.
Your body was designed to heal itself. But to do so, we need to give it what it needs.
Fun fact: The human body has more than 30 trillion cells that are constantly working to keep us functioning as we should; they work each day to keep us at a natural equilibrium. When we are ill, some of these cells might get damaged. But they can heal and replace themselves to return to an optimal working condition.
"The body is a miraculous self-healing mechanism if you give it what it needs to heal itself" Caspar Szulc on how the body is a complex system with abilities to heal itself.
