Osteopathic Physician practicing in the USA.
Dr. Dane Shepherd has been practicing medicine for over 37 years. He is licensed to perform surgery, prescribe medicine, and has also taught other doctors. As an Osteopathic Physician and Surgeon, he treats patients with a unique form of medical care known and practiced by less than 100 doctors in the United States. While doing everything the allopathic doctor (M.D.) does, Dr. Shepherd goes much further. Along with osteopathic manipulative therapy, he incorporates acupuncture, homeopathy, and nutrition with the conceptual framework of continuous care for not only health recovery, but health maintenance and the prevention of illness.
Acupuncture, practiced in China for thousands of years, promotes good health by facilitating the body’s natural electrical energy flow. This energy flow releases endorphines, the body’s natural pain suppressors. With acupuncture, Dr. Shepherd is able to regulate and restore the harmonious energetic balance of the body to effectively treat such health problems as ear, nose, throat, respiratory, gastrointestinal, eye, nervous system and muscular disorder.
Dr. Shepherd uses homeopathic medicine, which in very small doses can be absorbed and dissolved under the tongue. Based on the principal that the basis for the symptoms in a healthy person can also be the cure and that the cure is derived from the cause, Dr. Shepherd has had great success treating both minor conditions (allergies, baby colic and teething, upper respiratory problems, sinus congestion, and muscle soreness) and more serious conditions (high blood pressure and other cardiovascular diseases). Homeopathy has been proven a safe and effective complimentary treatment, especially for those who are drug-sensitive or suffer from allergies.
