Welcome to the online press kit for Dr. Steven Hodes!
Steven E. Hodes [pronounced"Ho-dis"], M.D., is a traditionally trained physician with a metaphysical point of view.
Dr. Steve's approach to well-being encompasses both the scientific and spiritual causes for pain, illness, and disease. He helps us bridge the gap between traditional medicine and holistic healing and shines a light on ways non-medical issues -- such as stress and emotional blockages -- contribute to illness. Although he has a great regard and love for traditional medicine, he believes strongly in the connection between body, mind, and spirit. Dr. Steve has devoted himself to teaching, lecturing, writing, and sharing his wisdom on this topic.
His new book, Meta-Physician on Call for Better Health: Metaphysics and Medicine for Mind, Body, and Spirit (Praeger Publishers, November 30, 2007), explores the connection between spirituality and medicine and offers many ways metaphysics can help facilitate healing.
Dr. Steve brings the wisdom of almost 30 years in private practice to his work as a Meta-Physician. He does not consider himself a practitioner of alternative medicine, but he does take a "holistic" approach. He utilizes all that science has to offer in terms of testing, treatments, and procedures and also takes into consideration that emotional and spiritual imbalances in one's life can lead to dis-ease in the body. Metaphysics is a tool he can use to help people heal – and learn to heal themselves.
Dr. Steve is a board certified gastroenterologist and practices in Edison and
