I began working with Dr. Susanna Alter in August 2019, primarily to deal with my lifelong experience with severe allergies and sinus issues. These symptoms and reactions have negatively impacted my life experience and have grown worse in recent years. With Dr. Susanna's support I switched to a vegan diet and made other modifications to my diet. Within days my chronic symptoms were reduced by over 90 percent! Dr. Susanna has been extremely supportive of my healing journey and, in particular, making sure that I am getting enough calories and a balanced mix of nutrients as I continue my healing process. I am amazed at how rapid, profound, and delightful my results have been and I look forward to continued progress as I consult with Dr. Susanna on an ongoing basis. If you are seeking true, long-lasting relief from a health issue without just "putting a bandaid on it" via drugs, I highly recommend that you consult with Dr. Susanna and give her recommendations a try!
I’ve worked 1-on-1 with Dr. Susanna and with both her and Dr. Benjamin in the community meetings. They have been so incredibly helpful to me. My sessions with Dr. Susanna felt like talking to a friend. Someone who genuinely cared for my well-being and total health inside, out, spiritually, mentally, and emotionally. She also valued my thoughts and own research, which has not always been my experience with other health professionals. I could share anything I was thinking and feeling, knowing that I wouldn’t be judged in any way, knowing that I would be believed and validated, and also knowing that I would be corrected if I had something wrong or was completely off course. Dr. Susanna has given me tips on natural hygiene and beauty care, easy and fun ways to incorporate gentle cleansing and healing methods into my daily life, and is always there when I reach out. Both doctors have been incredibly flexible with me and my specific circumstances, and always giving out free and affordable information and help to multiple people via their IG accounts, podcast channel, FB page, and weekly group meetings. There just awesome people and I am really grateful to have them in my life. They both feel like friends who have gone through their own health struggles and also years of medical school. I recommend these two to anyone who is wanting to be healthier. Whether just starting out, or having struggled for a long time (like me). I’m still in it, but incorporating new methods based off their suggestions, and not feeling like I’m doing it completely alone.
“Working with Dr. Susanna has been such beneficial experience on so many levels. She is someone who practices what she teaches, whether it be on nutrition or on how the mind works. She always talks with me instead of at me or down to me. We figure out solutions together. She is always meeting me where I am at with compassion and an open ear. Her approach to healing is nurturing the whole human, not only the body but the spirit as well."
Drs. Susanna and Benjamin are wonderful teachers. I’ve learned so much from them. The Healing Community offered a ton of information. I have learned to implement more veggies and fruits in my diet. I also learned that’s it’s not just about the food you eat, it’s about your environment, inner wisdom and your authentic self. I highly recommend this Healing Community to anyone seeking optimal health.
I love learning with Drs. Benjamin and Susanna in the Healing Community. They exude health and have a great energy about them. They share lots of insights and tips for application and they are very non-judgmental and accepting.
Following a Whole Food Plant-Based Diet is new to me. It was extremely valuable for me to participate in the Healing Community with Drs. Benjamin and Susanna. The ‘real life’ ideas and strategies were ones I could start implementing immediately to help with my adjustment to this way of eating.
With Dr. Benjamin's incredible help I have managed to release weight and have greatly improved my health. He helped me awaken to new ways of looking at food, nutrition, and my body. I changed some day-to-day habits, aligning with a more natural way of being and eating. The most valuable part of my process involved Dr. Benjamin's loving, kind, and extremely compassionate nature. I felt truly seen, heard and met. He listened, instructed, and was consistently gentle and caring.
“I've been working with Dr. Benjamin for years on random issues with skin rashes, mental health, and nutrition. I love how Dr. Benjamin always keeps things so simple and straightforward rather than complicating things with tons of supplements and products. The biggest impact Dr. Benjamin has had in my life is simply supporting me to calm down, listen to my body, and trust in the healing process.”
“I have been bringing my two sons to see Dr. Benjamin for support in healing severe chronic fatigue syndrome due to epstein barr virus. Dr. Benjamin did a fantastic job of getting to the root of the infection with natural therapies. What’s more is Dr. Benjamin’s kindness and compassion in supporting my two boys through their emotional healing. Integrating the natural therapies with mind-body medicine is a real gift that has been profoundly effective in supporting my boys back to their healthy selves."
"My consultations with Dr. Benjamin can only be described as life-changing. Our visit was filled with compassion as I felt held and heard sharing the truth of just how unwell I felt. Within 2 weeks my migraines were completely gone and my body pain was markedly improved. After 6 weeks, my periods were so much better. Now, 3 months later, I cannot believe how my health has improved! Everything is so much better and my excess weight is slowly but surely being released. I cannot recommend Dr. Benjamin highly enough.”
