Event Information


Professor Foo Keong Tatt, eminent professor of medicine, views the practice of medicine as both a science and an art. Treating the disease is the science; dealing with the patient is the art. A patient is a body, mind and spirit. Holistic medicine addresses this whole person and recognizes the mind’s great influence over health and disease. The use of impersonal high technology should be balanced against a high personal touch. Nature is the best healer. Time will heal through improved immunity in the body, with relaxation of the mind, exercise and diet.
