Nutritional/Medical Consultations with Dr. Tel-Oren

The following information will help you prepare for your consultation appointment with Dr. T, if you seek his guidance on your quest for health and wellness:
Dr. Adiel Tel-Oren ("Dr. T") is a Medical Doctor trained in Europe and the USA (licensed in Europe), board-certified with the American Board of Functional Medicine, American Clinical Board of Nutrition, the American Board of Disability Analysts, and American Board of Oxidative Medicine (now part of the American Board of Chelation Therapy, where he is certified as well). He is a Professor & Certified Clinical Nutritionist with the Clinical Nutrition Board of the International and American Association of Clinical Nutritionists; a Doctor of Chiropractic (trained and licensed in the USA, retired since 2001), a Licensed Nutritionist (Minnesota); and member of the ACA Council on Nutrition. He is President Emeritus of the University of Natural Medicine (Santa Fe, New Mexico), where he is Dean of Medical Sciences and Professor of Functional and Nutritional Medicine (What is Functional Medicine?).

Dr. T addresses most health challenges, utilizing functional, dietary, clinical, and nutritional medicine, as well as special therapeutic modalities and in-depth detoxification protocols. Therapy is individually tailored based on findings obtained via complete history-taking, questionnaires, a variety of diagnostic tests (including cutting-edge functional tests, some of which Dr. T has helped create), natural principles, clinical experience, and the scientific literature. Occasionally, the patient will be referred for diagnosis or assistance by other doctors. Dr. Tel-Oren's recommendations do not constitute allopathic medicine (which focuses on toxic chemical drugs, surgery, and/or radiation to suppress symptoms or advanced pathology with limited attention to causation). Hundreds of international patients use phone/Skype to consult with Dr. T regardless of where he is in the world. He also offers skin-lesion treatment clinics in over 30 American cities and over 25 Israeli locations.  In Minneapolis he physically sees patients 1-2 days per month, releasing them rapidly into independent self-care by utilizing resources from the local Ecopolitan environment (the world's healthiest & most ecological restaurant, CD’s/DVD’s, food preparation classes, seminars, foraging trips in Wisconsin, eco-adventures, and treatment modalities in the Ecopolitan Clinic & Eco-Stay Health Retreat - see www.ecopolitan.com).
 
Dr. T's objective is to restore or improve the patient's nutritional status, digestive functions, immunological resistance, hormonal balance, cardiovascular health, neurological integrity, cognitive capacity, mental, behavioral, and emotional health, and skin & hair appearance. Supporting the individual's overall health is accomplished by avoiding exposure to specific and general disease generators, and by incorporating measures that improve the body's defense mechanism and self healing potential. These health-regenerating activities are science based, rigorous in quality, and individually tailored to each patient by addressing the historical, physical, environmental, biochemical, toxicological, electro-magnetic, nutritional, dietary, micro-biological (ecological), emotional, social, and medical factors uniquely comprising that person's health. 

Dr. Tel-Oren educates the public by lecturing around the world (250-275 lectures a year) and offering educational seminars and certification programs; provides a unique, non-surgical, non-medical and non-invasive skin growth and blemish removal   method; authors books and articles; conducts research, guides groups on Humanitarian Eco-Treks in Nepal  and Eco-Foraging weekends in the US; initiates and develops projects supporting health and ecology, and manages several non-profit organizations that he has founded internationally (e.g. The Ecopolitan Eco-Health Community in the USA; MARPI - The Center For Functional Medicine In Israel; and Everest Learning Academy in Nepal - a network of schools, community outreach programs, orphanages, and day care centers that educate, nurture, and protect thousands of disadvantaged Nepali children & orphans in rural villages where the risk for child trafficking, prostitution, and slavery is especially high).
 
If you wish to benefit from the Natural Functional Medicine approach Dr. T helped develop, please take into account that he is not always immediately available (yet his team is makes every effort to respond in a timely manner and refer questions from patients).
 
Who would benefit from consulting Dr. T?
The treatment always addresses the reasons and causes for the condition or health risk, never just the symptoms. As long as we can identify the factors that play a role in the development of dysfunction, as well as reverse their effect on the cells and tissues, it is possible to initiate positive steps that will improve health and allow healing, or at least inhibit the pathological process and prevent it from getting worse. Success of the treatment depends on many factors, including adherence to the guidelines and recommendations by Dr. T, the presence of dietary and environmental causes the patient is exposed to with or without his/her knowledge, medical history, complicating factors, toxicity levels and detoxification capacity, metabolic disruptors, genetic conditions/predispositions that often can not be controlled (yet their effect can be reduced), the general medical condition of the patient, and the extent of illness.

How To Determine How Much Time To Reserve?

- A short follow-up call of an established patient.

- Clarification of brief questions.

- Review of results of simple laboratory tests.

- Review of one functional lab test or recommended questionnaire.

45 minutes:

- Review of a moderately complex medical history (patient takes over two prescription drugs for example).

- Answering a few questions and review of one functional lab test or recommended questionnaires.

60 minutes:

- To review and address extensive and complex medical history.

Please note!
