“When treating patients I look at all aspects of body, mind and spirit. To do this, it’s essential that I listen very carefully to each patient, and see each one as a unique individual with individual needs. Only then can we start to work together on a healing path.“
~Keith G. Lowenstein, M.D.
In addition to his formal medical training (at Albany Medical College in New York; Good Samaritan Medical Center in Phoenix; and Portland’s Oregon Health and Sciences University), he began his study of the mind-body interface in 1971 with extended training in yoga and transcendental meditation.
Since then, Dr. Lowenstein has consistently sought out additional training in many different modalities to broaden his approach to healing. He studied at the Mind-Body Institute with the author of The Relaxation Response, Herbert Benson, M.D. of Harvard Medical School, and was one of the first students to study with Andrew Weil, M.D. at the University of Arizona Medical School. A founding diplomate of the American Board of Integrative and Holistic Medicine (ABIHM), he served as faculty for the early board review course. He has also had additional training in obesity medicine, cranial osteopathy and homeopathy, as well as nutritional, behavioral, herbal medicine, naturopathic medicine as well psychodynamic, cognitive behavioral, mindfulness and somatic psychotherapies. Dr. Lowenstein is a graduate of the Helms Medical Institute in medical acupuncture. Acupuncture can be very helpful with some physical and emotional difficulties.
With this comprehensive integrative approach to health care and his particular interest in nutrition and mind-body medicine, Dr. Lowenstein brings a unique perspective to his practice. For this reason he is frequently asked to consult with other practitioners and regularly gives presentations on integrative holistic health care, nutrition and stress-related illness.
