Welcomes Dr. Hyla Cass

e are proud to announce the formation of an alliance with Hyla Cass, M.D., as a medical advisor and contributor to this publication, joining Life Enhancement Products’ distinguished and growing team of medical, scientific, and nutritional experts. Dr. Cass is one of the country’s foremost authors and speakers on the subject of integrative medicine. An assistant clinical professor of psychiatry at the UCLA School of Medicine, as well as chair, Department of Complementary and Alternative Medicine at the American University of Complementary Medicine in Los Angeles, she has incorporated nutrition and natural health techniques into her practice for more than 20 years.

Born in Toronto, Dr. Cass received both her premedical and medical education at the University of Toronto, and she interned at the Los Angeles County–USC Medical Center. Her residency was at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, Los Angeles, where she specialized in child and family psychiatry. Board certified as a Diplomate of the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology, she was an attending staff physician at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center (1980–1992).

Dr. Cass’s years of experience have yielded three guiding principles:

  1. Treat the whole person—mind, body, spirit, and environment.
  2. Look first for the deepest root problems beneath any symptoms.
  3. Apply a continuum of treatments, always beginning with the safest, most natural, and most benign.

Moreover, Dr. Cass represents what is perhaps the most significant upheaval in the history of healthcare. It is an idea virtually uncontemplated until now: the age of patient empowerment, made possible by the information explosion, about which she says:

We are in the midst of a health care revolution, replacing “doctor as authority” with “doctor as resource” in a shift toward self-education, self-care, and shared responsibility. Our common goal is the healing of ourselves, of our systems of health care, of our communities, and, ultimately, of our planet.

Dr. Cass is the author of seven books, including 8 Weeks to Vibrant Health and Natural Highs: Supplements, Nutrition, and Mind-Body Techniques to Feel Good All the Time. About her latest book, 8 Weeks to Vibrant Health, Ann Louise Gittleman, Ph.D., C.N.S., author of the New York Times bestsellers Before the Change and The Fat Flush Plan, has written:

Here is the book for women whose symptoms their doctor cannot explain, let alone cure. You really can discover what your real problem is, and find safe, natural solutions, backed by research and by Dr. Cass’s years of clinical experience.

Among Dr. Cass’s many affiliations are the Health Sciences Institute, Total Health magazine, and Vitamin Relief USA, an organization dedicated to providing nutritional supplements for children and adults at risk for nutritional deficiencies. At Vitamin Relief USA, she once served as president and is now a member of the board of directors. She is also a board member of California Citizens for Health Freedom and of Better Health Campaign: Kids’ Health Initiative Committee.

Recently Dr. Cass served as the master of ceremonies at the Celebration of Freedom, a two-day gathering held last September in Big Sky, Montana. Organized by the Washington, DC-based law firm of Emord & Associates, PC, the event honored those who fight for the cause of health freedom in America.

Dr. Cass appears regularly, as an expert in her field, on radio and TV (including the CBS Evening News with Dan Rather, and MSNBC) and in publications such as the Los Angeles Times, The Toronto Star, Cosmopolitan, Time, and People.

Dr. Cass also maintains a busy schedule of speaking engagements at health-related events around the country, with topics ranging from complementary medicine and psychiatry, anti-aging, and women’s health (including natural hormone therapy) to weight management, stress reduction, and natural treatments for addictions, anxiety disorders, and depression.
