Dr. Adam Fogelman is a very passionate individual, who also is an ever-evolving work in progress. He is an East Coast native, born and raised in New York, whose values mimic the coast he was raised on.
Dr. Fogelman’s journey of personal growth is constant! He realized that the most important things in life aren’t things at all. His life’s passion is to be health conscious, live simplistically, laugh often, love unconditionally, learn, surrender, grow and travel as much as possible. His life’s work is to help as many people as he can, even if one person at a time. He is adamant about making a positive contribution to the Human race while he is here.
Through his trials and tribulations as an undergraduate pre medical student at Arizona State University, Dr. Fogelman developed an interest for the healing arts and natural medicine. He began to realize that there was more to helping someone live a healthy lifestyle than just treating them with western medicine or surgery. Although both are important therapies and belong in the health care field, they should not be the first line of defense when helping someone to become healthier.
This ultimately led Dr. Fogelman to leaving the impending medical path he began on, searching for an approach that would give him freedom to express the compassion others lacked and allow him to treat the body and the patient as a whole. He felt that could be done by identifying the root cause, not just the symptoms present.
Through his research and studies, Dr. Fogelman adopted a paradigm called the “Triad of Health.” This “triad” is denoted by an equilateral triangle listing the three basic causes of health problems. They are structural, chemical and mental; the structure being the foundation, the base of the triad. All health problems, whether on a functional or pathological level, are involved with one or all parts of this triad. A doctor, who is aware of this functional balance between all three sides, can evaluate and treat every patient from each angle and increase their ability to find the basic underlying cause of a patient’s health problem.
Dr. Fogelman has completed extensive post-graduate training and has studied a variety of disciplines in holistic health care. He is certified in Applied Kinesiology and chose it as his specialty because it was the most effective in treating the whole person and the whole body.
