How to Heal from Complex and Chronic Diseases

Most of us have had close encounters with the debilitating effects of complex chronic disease, either through our own experiences or those of a loved one. For 47 years Neil Nathan, MD has been a practicing family physician, and he has devoted his life to helping patients with multiple complex problems that have not responded to conventional medical care.

His current work is focused on reaching as many patients as possible through continual medical practice, mentoring healthcare providers, and creating documented resources. We dive deep into the causes, effects, and healing of complex chronic disease. He sheds light on the enormous effect mold toxicity and lyme disease can have on emotional, physical, and spiritual well being. He empowers listeners with tools for healing, including how to identify many common co-infections and related health problems that can crop up in mold and lyme patients and also how to find healthcare providers.

Dr. Nathan’s message of hope, “if people want to get well, I believe that there is a healing path for them.”
