Summary:

During the initial years of practicing medicine, Dr. Vassen experienced a lack of fulfillment and discontent when treating patients using conventional allopathic medicine, relieving symptoms only and not really improving the patient’s general well-being and quality of life. This lead him to the exploration and study of Ayurvedic medicine, Acupuncture and Homeopathy. He found great enthusiasm, delight and satisfaction in integrating conventional medicine with these natural modalities of healing. Integrative health and medical doctor focusing on the whole person, addressing health concerns from a physical, emotional, energy and spiritual perspective. Dr Vassen provides a caring individualized approach to develop a personalized prescription that will guide the patient on a course to health and well-being. When there is a medical illness that is influenced and triggered by the person’s perceptions, interpretations, attitudes or lifestyle choices, an integrative medical consultation can help the patient become an active and empowered partner of the healing process. The best use of an integrative doctor’s knowledge is to teach and guide patients how to heal themselves. Health is not simply the absence of disease, but a state of higher awareness that opens us to greater well-being, creativity, and joy. The role of a doctor is to support people in restoring health and balance in their lives and to educate patients to make healing choices for themselves.

The body and mind are inseparably connected. Both negative and positive thoughts, along with our deepest desires, create simultaneous physical reactions in the body. All of the healing traditions offer valuable tools, and the best treatment is one that uses the correct tool for the task at hand, including the practices of both conventional and complementary medicine.

Dr Suresh Vassen provides an integrative approach to health and wellbeing for his patients, integrating Ayurvedic medicine, Yoga, Meditation and Self-Awareness. His primary focus is assessing the patient and disease holistically and integrating the physical body, senses, mind, energy and environment so that the innate healing response is strengthened optimally and sustainably. Dr Vassen is an Integrative Medical Doctor in private practice in Cape Town, South Africa. He qualified in 1986 with a medical degree from the University of Cape Town. He thereafter completed studies in Homeopathy, Ayurvedic Medicine and Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture. This led him to gain deep insight into the origin of illness and disease, thereby treating the patient that has the disease and not just the disease inflicting the patient. As complementary and alternative medicine continues becoming more mainstream, there’s no doubt that you’ll see more functional doctors in medical practices. Dr Vassen’s approach to health care, is an approach characterized by a high degree of collaboration and communication among health professionals. What makes integrated health care unique is the sharing of information among others related to patient care and the establishment of a comprehensive treatment plan to address the biological, psychological and social needs of the patient.
