Amino Acid Theraoyby David Gersten, M.D. on 11/08/16
Welcome to Dr. Gersten's website and blog. Dr. Gersten practices Integrative Psychiatry and Nutritional Medicine. Amino Acid Therapy is one of his main treatment modalities. While the science of amino acid therapy goes back about 60 years, there is now growing awareness of its therapeutic usefulness and power. We need to be systematic in testing for nutritional deficiencies. In addition it is important to view lab data within the context of a person's life, his or her strengths and weaknesses, creative outlets, relationships and much more. In all treatment modalities the doctor-patient relationship is the starting point and I put heavy emphasis on getting to know the "Person" who has a problem or illness. I look forward to sharing a wide variety of health-related issues in this blog...from Amino Acid Therapy to Mind-Body techniques.
