Medical Consultations Overview
The Chopra Center is pleased to offer integrated medical consultations by Valencia Porter, M.D.; Sheila Patel, M.D.; and Tim Brieske, M.D. These consultations address a person's health concerns from a physical, emotional and spiritual perspective. Integrating the theoretical frameworks of Ayurveda and modern science, these sessions focus as much on the person who is facing a health challenge as the health challenge being faced.
During a typical evaluation, the doctor takes a complete medical and lifestyle history and performs a physical examination that looks at the body both as a physical system as well as a field of intelligence, reflecting the needs and choices of a person's life. Based upon this assessment, a personalized body-mind-spirit health-enhancing prescription is formulated, including recommendations on diet, stress management, exercise, emotional healing, nutritional and herbal supplements, and sensory modulation. If indicated, appropriate laboratory testing or specialty consultation is suggested.
If you are facing a condition that you believe can be influenced by your perceptions, interpretations or lifestyle choices, an integrative medical consultation as developed by Drs. David Simon and Deepak Chopra can help you become an active, empowered partner in your healing process.
Medical consultations are available either on an outpatient basis or as a component of the Perfect Health program. Those interested in medical consultations will receive their mind-body consultation in person at the Chopra Center in Carlsbad, California. Phone consultations are not available at this time.
