In becoming a leading endometriosis specialist, Dr. Cook has developed a strong skill set and unique philosophy in his comprehensive holistic approach to his patients’ overall health, combining traditional Western medicine and surgical treatment with complementary, integrative care and a holistic philosophy.
In today’s show Dr. Cook and I chatted about…
- Questions to ask when consulting with a surgeon for endometriosis treatment;
- Why wide excision is the gold-standard surgical treatment for endometriosis and why it’s better than surgical methods that “burn” endo;
- Approaching endometriosis from an integrative perspective, incorporating immune system support and a nutrient dense diet;
- And we touched on endo, energy medicine and quantum physics, which made me admire him even more!
I hope you enjoy our conversation!
