While working a cruise ship, holistic doctor and acupuncturist Ahuva Gamliel treated a passenger complaining of digestive issues. Impressed by how fast she found relief, the patient said she would send her husband so that Gamliel could treat his shoulder pain. But the woman added, "My husband is not going to tell you this, but he has erectile dysfunction and I want you to treat him for it." Noticing the man didn't mention erectile dysfunction on his intake form, Gamliel proceeded to treat him for it anyway, along with tending to his shoulder. A few days later, the woman stopped by and said, "What did you do to him? I feel like we are on our second honeymoon." Dr. Gamliel thrives on hearing such patient testimonials. Knowing since she was 5 years old that she would become a doctor, Gamliel began working as a phlebotomist in high school. But her first experiences with conventional medicine?which she recalls as "cold, callous, and impersonal"?left her disenchanted. After completing undergraduate study in psychobiology, Gamliel discovered the field of natural medicine and went on to earn a doctorate in naturopathic medicine and acupuncture from Bastyr University. Today, Gamliel pursues her vision of bringing natural healthcare to the masses through MiBaSo, an acronym for mind, body, and soul. Gamliel hopes to turn MiBaSo into a franchised, membership-based practice that increases the visibility, accessibility, and affordability of natural medicine.
Dr. Sylvan Fain knows that technology is constantly changing. That's why he furthers his dental education—which includes a doctor of dental surgery degree from University of Western Ontario and training at Nova Southeastern University—by completing regular courses in cosmetic, restorative, implant, and sedation dentistry. As part of that pledge, his office has been equipped with the latest advancements, including low-radiation digital x-ray equipment, and patients can find an array of state-of-the-art services ranging from Zoom teeth whitening and clear Invisalign braces to veneers that, like M&M's of the future, feature a thin shell made of porcelain or ceramic.
At Born Warriors Mixed Martial Arts, the instructors might be training cage-fighters one hour and 2-year-olds the next. They believe in the power of martial-arts training not just as a competitive tool, but as an agent of social change—one that's able to prevent bullying and increase anyone's knowledge of self-defense. Though they teach many disciplines—muay thai, tae kwon do, kickboxing, and jujitsu among them, with the head instructor obtaining a 1st dan tae kwon do black belt and 4th dan kempo black belt—their supportive attitudes remain constant across every class. They also keep their classes small, ensuring that students receive personalized, encouraging feedback.
Vera Vasershteyn's career in acupuncture and pain-management began more than 40 years ago, when she graduated from a Moscow medical school in 1972. In 1990 she moved to Miami and became a certified physician in her new country. Now at Surfside Pain Control Center, she consults with each patient in order to map the proper treatment path. Her methods include acupuncture, magnet therapy, and cold-laser therapy, which uses a gentle light to promote tissue repair and help swallowed watermelon seeds start growing in the stomach. All of her treatments are natural and nontoxic, which has been a foundation of the practice she started four decades ago.
