Dr. Sal Tirrito practices a much more integrative style of medicine. Although, he believes traditional Western medicine has its place, it is clearly not enough and is very evident by the fact that there are billions of people taking medications yet as each year passes we are seeing rising rates of chronic disease and generally a decreased quality of life as we age.
Dr. Tirrito feels the reason modern Westernized medicine is failing us is because we place too much emphasis on treating the disease when we should be treating the person with the disease. Modern Westernized medicine unfortunately deemphasize the importance of lifestyle as the causative factor in most disease processes.
He believes what we eat is probably the single most important factor. In addition to nutritional counseling, Dr. Tirrito also stresses the importance of regular exercising and mind-body therapies (such as meditation, breath work) to help one achieve both a healthy body and mind and free us from our dependence on medications.
