Haskell has been in practice for over 34 years. ‘You have to discover the causes for why a person is unwell. You can’t just treat symptoms or labels. And if you can understand and address these causes then the miraculous capacity of the body to heal will take care of the rest. It is a matter of respecting the innate wisdom of the body and believing in this capacity to heal.’
Haskell incorporates a wide range of lab testing, as well as viewing a tiny drop of the client’s blood under a microscope. All this information is important and then a program is designed to correct imbalances.
He believes there are three primary causes for why a person becomes ill.
The first is nutritional deficiencies. If the cells aren’t fed then their function declines and the person has symptoms.
The second is environmental toxins which we are exposed to every day of our lives. We have to reduce our exposure (in our food, air and water) and then help the body to detox.
The third is chronic silent low-grade infections which most people are unaware of. This can be bacterial, viral and mold. This has to be investigated and then through the use of various therapies, reduce their population.
This is the ideal of holistic medicine which recognizes the body’s innate capacity to heal and using primarily natural remedies to promote health and vitality.
