Classical Chinese Medicine
Dr. Adam Broder, Doctor of Oriental Medicine
Adam is constantly amazed at the innate intelligence and healing capacity of the human body, and sees his role as helping to guide and facilitate that process. Illness is seen as an opportunity for deeper growth rather than an obstacle. His post-graduate studies in the discipline of Classical Chinese Medicine have opened up new ways of seeing the meridian system and greater possibilities for healing. Dr. Broder believes that in addition to acupuncture and herbal medicine, a balanced lifestyle including proper nutrition, exercise, stress management and a positive outlook are necessary to support ones wellness goals, and he enjoys coaching his patients in these areas. He has experience treating many different conditions, though finds himself gravitating toward those that are chronic in nature for which other interventions have not been successful. He is honored and grateful to be a part of Mountain Spirit.
Dr. Adam Broder first began studying herbalism in January of 2012 when he was living in Chicago. Around the same time he began a certification program in Zen Shiatsu, a form of massage from Japan which utilizes the same system of points and energy meridians, and many of the foundational theories, of Chinese medicine. Later that year he took part in a three week work-study trip to Nicaragua with the group Natural Doctors International where he learned from indigenous herbalists, American herbalists and naturopathic physicians in a clinic setting. These experiences inspired him to enroll in the Masters of Science in Oriental Medicine program at Pacific College in Chicago in 2013. In 2016 he relocated to Santa Fe and transferred to Southwest Acupuncture College to complete his degree.
