Dr. Isaac Eliaz Gives Keynote Address at Annual Congressional Cancer Reception
Date:9/20/2011

WASHINGTON, Sept. 20, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Isaac Eliaz, M.D. L.A.c, M.S., a world-renowned integrative medical doctor, shares the latest findings in prevention and treatment of breast cancer at The Tigerlily Foundation's Young Women's Breast Health Day on Capitol Hill and Congressional Reception. The annual event is hosted by Tigerlily Foundation, a breast cancer non-profit organization whose mission is to "educate, advocate for, empower and provide hands on support to young women – under 40, before, during and after breast cancer." The rates of breast cancer among younger women have increased significantly over the last two decades. Younger women typically face greater challenges with this disease than women over 40, partly because historically, breast cancer was mainly a disease that occurred in older women.  Although there are more cases of younger women being diagnosed, cases among this population are generally not detected as early as they could be because physicians and the young women themselves are often unaware of the risks.

"Dr. Isaac Eliaz is the first integrative medicine doctor to give a keynote address during our event. He really made an impact on our audience with a clear message of why integrative medicine is incredibly important to women, especially breast cancer survivors," says Donna Kaufman, Vice President of Tigerlily Foundation.

What is Integrative Medicine?

Integrative medicine combines both traditional and holistic approaches when treating people. It is patient driven, unbiased and individualized. The practice of integrative medicine is becoming more widely known in the medical field and on Capitol Hill. "I had the remarkable opportunity to share the podium with speakers such as Dr. Otis Brawley, Chief Medical Officer of The American Cancer Society, physicians from Johns Hopkins, Georgetown University and more.  There were a lot of mutually-supported points amongst the speakers. I think it's symbolic that many health centers of excellence are recognizing the importance of integrative care and engaging Members of Congress to discuss the underlying issues of cancer care," says Dr. Eliaz.

The fact that Tigerlily Foundation chose Dr. Eliaz, an integrative physician, to be the keynote speaker for such a congressional event is monumental. It represents a potential shift forward in the mainstream cancer treatment model, from a conventional 'one size fits all' treatment approach to a more holistic, wellness and individual-centered approach. Such a shift offers a strong focus on healthy prevention methods and integrative treatment protocols, which combine traditional and natural therapies together with Western medical modalities for optimal clinical outcomes. Maimah Karmo, Tigerlily President says, "The work that Dr. Eliaz is doing is very impactful. We are excited about highlighting integrative care as a preventative and complementary treatment, in addition to the traditional modes of care. Younger women need to be more aware of all the risk factors that could impact their breast health."

Integrative medicine focuses on caring for a person as a whole rather than just treating symptoms or attacking a disease at the expense of a patient's vitality. Physical, mental, emotional and psychospiritual health, along with dietary and lifestyle choices are all addressed in an integrative treatment protocol, resulting in highly strategic, individualized programs that offer much greater opportunities for successful clinical outcomes and optimal healing.
