Let Me Introduce Myself

Hi, I’m Dr. Howard Walsdorf, or Dr. W as I’m often called. Some people call me the 4 Element Guru. It does sound a bit strange to my ears, but it speaks to something I’m all about – Nature’s Four Elements – Fire, Air, Water and Earth.

There’s a good chance that you won’t find anyone out there as knowledgeable about, and tenaciously focused on them as I am. They’re about an ancient wisdom known and talked about by few. I’m here to change that.

As a doctor and scientist I’ve applied modern science to these ancient concepts

Like other scientists and doctors before me – and so different from most today – I’ve been seeking to understand our human body in terms of a set of life-positive, and arguably “spiritual” principles.

For example, Fire, Air, Water and Earth (in that order) are manifested by the body’s nerves, muscles, organs, and bones. These same four principles play out in the constituents of our food.

I’ve also come to understand, as our ancient forebearers did, that this foursome shows up as four important parts of who we each are, and more broadly as four distinct parts of our human condition. 

In my book, you’ll discover how to better balance your life as you come to understand these four spiritual principles-natural forces-human values that move through you.

In less than 300 pages – with abundant illustrations – you will gain incredible knowledge, insight, and practical advice – on how to increase your health, your mental balance, and your spiritual well-being. See table of contents here.

us are the true healers

Like other scientists and doctors before me – and so different from most today – I’ve been seeking to understand our human body in terms of a set of life-positive, and arguably “spiritual” principles.

The Four-Element Holistic Model helps chiropractors, physical therapists, yoga instructors, sports and work-out enthusiasts gain more insight into the body’s structure and function. They learn how to tap into nature’s foursome of life-positive principles by activating certain muscles and kinetic chains.

I’m the founder of The Four Element Institute. Its mission is to create a positive synergy as it brings researchers together to explore what happens when this four-element pattern is applied to science’s various hard and soft fields.

I’ve created a Holistic Learning Program

-One way people can learn more about this ancient holistic model of living – and apply it to themselves – is to take the Holistic Learning Program I offer at www.Patreon.com/GrowingHolistically. It’s an easy way to discover how amazing this (almost lost) Fire-Air-Water-Earth knowledge is.

Also available there are my Quick Minutes, which help you gain this natural wisdom in easy-to-digest nuggets. This Learning Program includes my Holistic Advice for Your Pain, my 4 Element Yoga and Moving With Doc collections of videos. 

Along the way, you’ll discover the how and why of good nutritional habits as you learn about the various life-positive principles that make up different foods.

You’ll learn how to “heel strike” more effectively as you walk in order to bring “more Earth energies” into yourself. That will help you to become mentally sturdier, and physically more bone-strong. You’ll find yourself breathing in four element-inspired ways to gain more “chi” – and changing your posture in positive ways, too.

In addition to my Holistic Learning Program, I’ve also created a community geared around helping you to become the best you can be. GrowingHolistically.com is here to encourage people to find their own positive, elegant, productive balances of these natural principles – and to share their experiences with others.

 4 Element Yoga – it’s Revolutionary!

4 Element Yoga™, the exercise system I’ve devised over the last 30 years, is revolutionary in the way it helps people draw a set of cosmos-spanning, nature-framing holistic principles into the fabric of their body. Through 4 Element Yoga, you’ll learn how to balance those cosmic-natural-spiritual forces that build your body and shape your mental health.

 

In-Office Treatments

Dr. Walsdorf is not your average doctor. As a holistic chiropractor at University Chiropractic & Natural Healing Center in Syracuse, NY, he has, for over 35 years, dedicated his life toward finding the best in natural treatments – often combining parts of both Eastern and Western medicine.

An important part of what makes him so unique and helpful for so many people coming in with a wide variety of problems is his 4 Element Natural Healing System.

This system of healing enables him to help patients address their deep health issues that involve organs like the heart, stomach and adrenals, as well as skeletal issues that involve back and foot pain, arthritis and posture.

In addition to utilizing spinal adjustments and nutrition in his practice, Dr. W is one of the few chiropractors that applies hands-on cranial-facial techniques for helping patients with concussions, migraines, sinus, jaw and early Alzheimer’s.  You can learn more about Dr. Walsdorf’s practice at University Chiropractic & Natural Healing Center
