It’s Time for Slow Medicine – A conversation with Michael Finkelstein, MD


Michael Finkelstein 2Michael Finkelstein, MD, FACP, ABIHM, aka The Slow Medicine Doctor, has been featured in top media outlets including The New York Times, CNN, and ABC News. Following his medical training he studied with integrative medicine pioneer Andrew Weil, MD.

Today we will explore the value of Slow Medicine, the holistic way of approaching human health that treats the whole person – body, mind, emotions, and spirit. Dr Finkelstein shows how widely accepted this approach is becoming – in fact, he is the Medical Director of several major hospitals and health institutes, including two Integrative Medicine hospital departments/programs that he founded.

Drawing from this diverse medical expertise, Dr. Finkelstein offers both a micro and macro point of view on today’s healthcare needs and challenges, and he provides a tried-and-true solution for healing individual patients and the medical
 system as a whole: Slow Medicine.

You will learn what Slow Medicine is, and how healing takes place when we live from the heart with passion and purpose. Everything is inter-dependent—muscles 
and nerves, bodies and minds, people and planet – and each connecting thread has a domino effect on the other. To achieve and sustain optimal health, we need perspective that goes beyond the obvious symptoms. We need to become aware of each area of our lives and explore how to optimize our wellness, not only within each of these areas – through nutrient-dense foods, a loving partner, artistic expression, and so on – but also through their harmonious integration.

The best “quick fix” for your health, it turns out, is not a quick fix at all; rather, it is Slow Medicine – a methodical, step-by-step process of asking questions that lead to awareness that turns into action that results in optimal health.
