The Holistic Highway is a health services practice that is known for its comprehensive, holistic approach to health that utilizes the best of western medicine along with the eastern approach that says we are all unique and we need different things to be healthy.
The Holistic Highway incorporates in its model, an understanding of the whole person, including medical, genetic, nutritional and emotional assessments. “This allows us to create a precise, patient-specific plan to address the root cause of any health challenges,” says Kerry Harling, CEO and founder.
Kerry Harling is a globally recognized leader in the field of integrative medicine and the science of health known as Ayurveda. She is passionate about raising awareness for the need for a change in contemporary medicine that focuses on patient empowerment and a health based (rather than disease based) medical system. Kerry practices at the University of Pittsburgh’s Center for Integrative Medicine and remains a pioneer in the field of integrative medicine where she has developed a personalized system to manage chronic disorders by incorporating fundamental changes in diet, behavior, and stress while focusing on genetics. This individualized program is so successful that many of her clients have achieved maximum healing and vitality after years of chronic problems.
Kerry is also a published author, and a Ted speaker.
The Holistic Highway is unique in that it does not treat diseases’ per-se, rather its team of trained professionals focus on diagnostics including genetic testing to identify imbalances unique to each client they work with. This information is then used to offer the highest level of personalized wellness-based medicine available.
By leaving no stone unturned in discovering each person’s genetic predispositions, and current biological imbalances – she is able to resolve all the stressors no matter where they originated.
Those stressors could be creating inflammation, toxicity, or a nutritional deficiency and indeed Kerry is no stranger to how those stressors can manifest as health challenges. “I spent most of my life being chronically unhealthy and chronically fatigued,” she says. “This always surprises people when I tell them, considering my profession, but I spent years being diagnosed with a myriad of diseases, including fibromyalgia, depression, Lyme Disease, anxiety and chronic fatigue. I was taking medication for all of them. I would go to the doctor and be prescribed the latest drug for my latest symptom. No one tried to understand the underlying cause of my health problems.”
With her background in neuroscience and environmental health, – she spent years researching complementary systems of medicine that addresses the underlying root cause. It was at this time she was introduced to Ayurveda, a system of medicine that treats each person as unique and balances the body and mind. At last Kerry started to see relief from her symptoms.
“I was absolutely stunned by the power of this simple yet effective method of health that I made a major life change and decided to study Ayurveda so that I could help others discover the incredible way this avenue of health could improve lives, like it did mine.
As an educator, Kerry decided to give back in the best way she knew how by teaching others. “It is not enough to give you a solution for a day. I give you the knowledge to achieve great health for your entire life.” Thus The Holistic HIghway was born.
