Wellness Beyond Western Medicine – Dr. Natanya Wachtel Passionately Advocates for the Fusion of Global Healing Practices for Longevity Science
In a world where Western medicine often dominates the healthcare landscape, there is a growing awareness of the benefits of integrating ancient Eastern traditions into modern treatment paradigms. Dr. Natanya Wachtel, a behavioral psychologist, is at the forefront of this movement, working to bridge the gap between Eastern and Western approaches to wellness and longevity.
Dr. Natanya Wachtel also has extensive experience in traditional and alternative healing methods. She has dedicated her career to helping individuals achieve optimal health and well-being by incorporating integrative practices that address the physical body, mind, and spirit. She has teamed up with Ivy Mahsciao, the Founder of evrmore.io – an AI-powered platform for Gen-Z mental wellness, and performs as a strategic advisor for ViTel Health, Better Meal AI, and Reju.
Recently, Dr. Natanya has been collaborating with the world-renowned Chopra Foundation Institute- a non-profit research organization founded by the renowned pioneer in integrative medicine and alternative healing practices, Deepak Chopra. With the Chopra Foundation Institute, their goal is to advance knowledge of and application of integrative medicine, combining Western science with Eastern healing practices to enhance health and longevity for all.
The Chopra Foundation is working to create studies and systems models that integrate Eastern traditions with clinical endpoints and use these to adjust Western treatment paradigms, through its research and educational initiatives. The Foundation supports research exploring the effectiveness of integrative medicine approaches, including Ayurveda, yoga, and meditation, in treating various health conditions. This research helps establish evidence-based practices that can be integrated into Western treatment paradigms.
Dr. Natanya recently shared the news about their groundbreaking research from Deepak Chopra and Ryan Castle (hyperlink them to LI) confirming the benefits of yoga as a complex system approach for pain management. The institute is also researching the changes in heart function after a 6-day meditation retreat. Dr. Natanya posits that this paper is “revolutionary” in the field of integrative medicine.
To leverage her experience of working with the leading minds in the wellness industry, Dr. Natanya is also planning to launch an all-inclusive wellness brand that will help people use integrative therapies to achieve optimal health.
Sharing this news, she said, “I am thrilled to announce that in the coming year, I’ll be teaming up with many of these leaders to launch a wellness brand and platform to bring together people who have chosen to prioritize wellness, elevate their perspective of holistic health, and embrace continuous learning that is accessible to all.” Through this venture, her aim is to empower and make meaningful connections with open-minded individuals and the growing community of wellness practitioners and professionals.
Unquestionably a trailblazer in integrative health and wellbeing, Dr. Natanya Wachtel has repeatedly shown her dedication to developing simple ways to lengthen life. By bringing Eastern traditions into modern treatment paradigms, we look forward to seeing her vision unfold and helping many more individuals become happier and healthier.
