Dr. Elstein’s 4 Pillars of Health

Aside from keeping up with a busy schedule, Dr. Elstein has written two popular ebooks. In one of them, You Have the Power, he outlines the “4 Pillars of Health.” Simply put, they are:

  1. Digestion
  2. Food allergy/Intolerance
  3. Nutritional Deficiency
  4. Hormonal function

Dr. Elstein writes from experiences with patients. In his July Newsletter, he cites one example. “Sarah,” a 42 year old librarian, had a long history of health problems, including:

  • Fatigue
  • Insomnia
  • Anxiety
  • Constipation
  • Foggy headedness

She also suffered from bouts of depression and a general lack of enthusiasm for life. She took prescription medications for her anxiety and depression, but wanted to wean herself off the medications, which were exacerbating her weight gain.

After working with Dr. Elstein for a year, most of Sarah’s symptoms were significantly reduced. How did he do it? The key was the 4 Pillars of Health:

  1. He prescribed supplementary hydrochloric acid and enzymes to help her digestion and extract better value from the food she ate.
  2. In the course of his investigations, Dr. Elstein discovered Sarah had a yeast intolerance.
  3. Sarah had some serious nutritional deficiencies, including a lack of essential vitamins and minerals. The lack of nutrients helped explain her lack of energy and “foggy headedness.”
  4. Sarah had an under-active thyroid gland. This contributed to her weight gain.

Once Sarah’s “4 Pillars” were stabilised, her symptoms were relieved and she became less dependent on medications.

The 4 Pillars of Health is just one example of Dr. Elstein’s holistic approach to wellness. Every case is different and Dr. Elstein conducts a comprehensive examination before recommending a course of treatment.
