Dr. Litov’s Healthcare Philosophy

  • Focus on each individual’s unique path to health.
  • Working not only with the symptoms and diagnosis of disease, but to unearth and treat the root causes in order to achieve a deeper level of optimal health.
  • Utilizing evidence-based natural treatments integrated with conventional diagnostics and medicines/treatments to work with the body and mind to achieve a better state of health and wellness.
  • Respecting and employing both traditional and conventional diagnostic tools and treatments.
  • Empower patients with knowledge, tools and treatments to help the patient make the best choices for their health.
  • Seeing and treating the whole person.  People are a complex matrix of their physical, mental, spiritual, and environmental worlds.  Addressing all of these are an important aspect of care.
  • Patients are the captain of their own healthcare ship. I am an educated guide. Patients are ultimately the decision makers concerning their own health and well-being.
