Homeopathic and Medical Consultant
Juan Carlos has served for nine years as a family physician in his native Peru, in settings as diverse as the Amazonian rainforest, the Andes, and Lima, incorporating the best scientific training and knowledge into caring for his patients. His lifelong interest in integrative medicine began in his first year of medical school, when Juan Carlos developed a serious illness which sent him to the hospital. Despite taking a high dosage of steroids and other medicine, nothing seemed to work. His family urged him to visit a homeopathic physician. Doubtful — but sick — he agreed. Within two weeks of beginning the prescribed homeopathic remedies, his illness disappeared, never to return.
In addition to rigorous medical protocol, his approach to patient care often included homeopathy, herbal treatments, and medical acupuncture. Juan Carlos is happy to be a part of the GW Center for Integrative Medicine.
