More/Other Information:

Dr. Adams believes that a holistic, integrative approach to healthcare seeks to find the root cause of any problem or illness, as opposed to masking symptoms with multiple medications. He integrates traditional hands-on Osteopathy, classical homeopathy and the best of western allopathic medicine. "Daily there is more research emerging showing the deep connection between body and mind; medical care, therefore, should include the whole person, body, mind and spirit."
