it is the body, not medicine, that is the hero.-Ronald J. Glasser, M.D.
My practice emphasizes of a blend of structural therapies, clinical nutrition, functional biochemistry, and energy medicine. I don’t treat disease, but the underlying imbalances or disturbances which can lead to illness. The process may include muscle and joint balancing, meridian therapy, bio-resonance/bio-feedback therapy and nutritional/metabolic therapies. The focus is on Western and Eastern-based methods of health and healing. The goal is restored vitality and optimal function validated by objective testing.
In 1995, Dr. Greg Barsten gave a lecture on nutrition and cancer at The Cancer Support and Education Center in Menlo Park. I had just finished radiation treatment for my third bout with metastatic breast cancer. I asked him to work with me, and he’s been working with me ever since. Well, now it’s 2012, and I’ve turned out to be my oncologist’s poster child. I’m not saying that Dr. Barsten works miracles, but I sure feel like he’s worked one with me.
Dr. Barsten is our health expert. Our family has consulted with him for many years for a variety of ailments from heart disease, thyroid issues, headaches and arthritis. We always walk away inspired and armed with solutions that really work. He will often recommend therapies that are simple and free.
Having gone to many Chiro’s over the years I can tell you that Greg is at the top of his game and is one that doesn’t simply want to snap crackle and pop you but actually get you well. His nutritional knowledge is among the best and his knowledge of supplements and herbal remedies is unbelievable.
Greg is fabulous. You always hear horror stories about people who go to chiropractors every week for years on end. With Greg, he can usually fix what ails you in one or two visits. I’ve recommended him to friends, and all of them were pleased.
The class IV laser treatments at HealthQuest have significantly lessened my osteoarthritis pain in both my knees, and I am much more stable on the stairs as well as on the golf course!
I’ve been receiving annual bone density scans. The recent combination of Dr. Barsten’s guidance on diet, nutrition, specific exercises, etc., has made a huge difference, an incredible difference. My most recent scan showed I was not only able to stop the bone loss, but actually gain bone density back. This is something my OB-GYN physician called both remarkable and surprising, given that I did not take prescription medications for osteoporosis. I am so glad I listened to you. I cannot thank you enough.
