ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Daniel Kalish, D.C., is a pioneer, having developed his own clinical model of functional medicine which he now teaches to health care practitioners. The Kalish Method training seminar, a mentorship program in functional medicine, is a webinar-based training program founded on over eighteen years of clinical results from working with thousands of patients. Dr. Kalish teaches a logical sequence of therapeutic programs using the best lab tests available and focuses on how to communicate effectively with patients to correct chronic health conditions, and, importantly, how to build a thriving practice.
Dr. Kalish was recently invited to participate in the One Mind For Research group by the Honorable Patrick Kennedy. The first One Mind For Research conference in Boston in 2011 was a gathering of the top 200 neuroscientists in the United States, coming together to form a unified front to promote research on brain disorders.
For ten years Dr. Kalish directed The Natural Path Clinic in Del Mar, California, where he coordinated a team of medical doctors, nutritionists, chiropractors, and acupuncturists. Dr. Kalish now maintains an active international phone consultation practice.
In his private practice, Dr. Kalish has developed nutritional programs for a varied group of patients, over 8,000 in all, ranging from Olympic athletes to new moms. His programs are highly effective across a broad population with a variety of health complaints.
Dr. Kalish received his B.A. in Physiological Psychology from Antioch College, Yellow Springs, Ohio. He studied at the University of London and conducted research with biochemist Dr. Robin Monroe at Cambridge University. He also worked with renowned psychiatrist Dr. R.D. Lang utilizing drug-free treatments for schizophrenics.
Dr. Kalish spent two years in monastic training in Asia. He lived at a Zen monastery in Japan, where he studied organic farming, Zen meditation, and the art of Zen archery under Harada Roshi. He also lived in a forest monastery in Thailand studying meditation and the transcription of Buddhist texts for Vipassana master Achan Buddadasa. He is a certified Alexander Technique teacher and trained for two years with Marion Rosen, founder of Rosen Method Bodywork.
"I wrote this book both for health care practitioners and the public. A great interest in natural health solutions currently exists for those who have become somewhat disillusioned with the conventional medical approach to solving many common health problems. Unfortunately, I frequently get emails and calls from people searching in vain for health care practitioners experienced in this type of work, and vast areas of this country remain underserved. I see great demand from consumers to have easy access to these natural programs, but a lack of doctors to provide them. My hope is that this book will give you, the consumer, enough information to know what to look for in a natural health program, and that more practitioners will be encouraged to join the wave to make functional medicine an important part of their practice." - Dr. Daniel Kalish
