Dr Raul Rodrigez M.D The Center for Natural Health The Center for Natural Health is under the management of Dr. Raul Rodrigez, graduate of the Faculty of Medicine at Tel Aviv University, and schools of medicine in China and Japan. Dr. Rodriguez is a physical fluent in conventional medicine who has specialized in Chine and natural medicine, and is considered the pioneering leader of this field in Israel. The Center for Natural Health was established in 2000, and routinely assists people of all ages. Among treatments given at the Center: Acupuncture – an ancient method of treatment some 3000 years old, based on the principles of energetic meridians that network through the body. The treatment is given using the finest, disposable needles, which are inserted into meridian points in the human body, with the purpose of returning balance to the body thereby treating and preventing pain. Cupping-glasses – is a method for primarily treating rheumatic and orthopedic pain. The cups placed on the back or pain filled areas form a vacuum that accelerates the blood flow to their positions on their body. Shiatsu – is a treatment carried through the practitioner’s hands, from light touch to gentle pressure, with the patient clothed, on the acupuncture points and energy paths. Nutrition consultation – recommendations for changing nutritional habits and returning to a healthier lifestyle, bypassing fast food products, and moving to nurturing that is physiologically matched to the body’s needs. Medicinal herbs – are used for diseases of internal organs. Chinese medicinal herbs are chosen after a highly in-depth set of questions are answered by the client. Hydrocolonic therapy – is a method for irrigating [internally cleansing] old fecal matter from the whole length of the large intestine’s inner walls, based on introducing warmed water integrated with medicinal herbs through a tube attached to suitable apparatus. The clinic also specializes in treating children suffering from allergies, respiratory issues, earache, problems with the digestive system, and attention deficit disorders. The Center offers consultations by qualified therapists as well as acupuncture, treatment with medicinal herbs and nutritional supplements. Dr. Rodrigez’ methods focus on repressing standardized antibiotic dosages in favor of treatment based on natural medicine which rely on an integration of ancient Chinese methods and modern Western medicine. Treatment is dedicated to healing and not merely suppressing symptoms as normative in conventional medicine.
