Dr. Kant looks at problems in a holistic manner and believes in the minimal use of medications. He looks for the underlying cause(s) of a problem, including allergies, nutrition, sleep, medication interactions, etc. It is not uncommon that at times simple, natural interventions have profound effects without the need for any medications. He looks for correcting underlying physiological processes such as sleep, nutrition, exercise, daily routines, energy balance, etc.
He believes that lifestyle modifications including dietary adjustments are needed to get a lasting effect rather than just depending on medications and patients need to be willing to make the changes to see positive changes in their life.
