IHS Philosophy

At IHS we believe that as humans, our present health and our health destiny is the sum of our genetics, diet, lifestyle choices, environment and emotions. And as no two humans have exactly the same combination of the above factors, the same symptoms suffered by one person are unlikely to have the same root cause as these symptoms in someone else. As different diseases may manifest as different symptoms from one individual to another there is no one treatment option to resolve any common health concern in all sufferers.
