Roy Ozanne, MD, HMD is a holistic medical doctor and homeopath physician with a background in ecology, organic farming, environmental education and nutrition.
He has come to see that the health of our people, our environment, our economy and our society are intertwined. Health and vitality in each sector supports the others.
Truly integrated medicine is not just about combining alternative and conventional medicine but integrating healthy approaches to living into all spheres of life.
Modern culture has discarded the basic patterns of a healthy life resulting in widespread disease. Allopathic medicine attempts to patch us up but neglects to restore the basic foundations of being physically and mentally sound, so that our health remains tenuous at best. For real and sustainable well-being to last from generation to generation it must be built on fundamental principles of healthful living involving life-giving foods, a clean, wholesome environment, sound life habits and natural medicines. Our health is only as secure as the foundations that support it.
Awakened by his own failing health in his 30s and alarmed by the rapidly declining health of the people and life supporting ecosystems of our nation, Dr. Ozanne rededicated his career to learning how to rebuild health, rather than to fight symptoms of disease. He has found that as the health of individuals and communities improves, diseases of all types decline.
Dr Ozanne began as a general practitioner in 1976. He began to develop holistic approaches to healing in 1983. With Dennis Anderson, Dr. Ozanne opened The Sandhill School of the Healing Arts in 1990 and helped organize The Cress Spring Farm, Yoga and Health Retreat Center in 1998. At these centers, Dr. Ozanne developed his skills and experience integrating a wide range of healing arts, including Homeopathy, Ayurvedic Medicine, Natural Hygiene, Nutritional Therapy, Orthomolecular Medicine, Yoga, Biodynamic and Organic Farming and others.
These centers provided a range of healing modalities, highly nutritious food and organic farming in pristine retreat settings. Dr. Ozanne discovered that the combined benefits for patients exceeded the impact of any single method, and that has since guided his approach to health and healing.
In addition, Dr. Ozanne studied Biophysical, Alpine and Winter Ecology, co-authoring Winter, An Ecological Handbook, published by Big Earth Press in 1987. He taught Winter Ecology at the Teton Science School in Jackson Hole, Wyoming from 1980 to 1987.
