While in medical school it was his 5-year-old daughter’s experience with psoriasis that sparked his interest in Alternative Medicine. In an attempt to help her, she was taken to several dermatologists who only prescribed stronger and stronger topical steroids.
Although the medication gave temporary relief, she could not be left on them indefinitely. On taking her off the medications the psoriasis would come back even worse. Out of desperation, she was taken to a physician in Kansas City who practiced homeopathy. Almost immediately she began to see improvement and within a month the skin lesion had cleared.
Over the last 32 years, Dr Pfau has sought out training from some of the best physicians in the alternative medical field. He is a graduate of the Hahnemann College of Homeopathy, the U.C.L.A Medical Acupuncture for Physicians Course, and Maharishi Ayurvedic Medicine Course for Physicians. He has also completed studies in chelation therapy, nutrition, osteopathic manipulation, bio-identical hormone therapy, and prolotherapy.
As Dr. Pfau has refined his practice over the last 32 years, he has found homeopathy and acupuncture to be the most comprehensive and effective approach in treatment most chronic illnesses. Homeopathy’s ability to stimulate healing on a deep level and its absence of negative side effects has benefited thousands of his patients both young and old. Because homeopathy is not a panacea he has learned to incorporate other therapeutic modalities, such as acupuncture and nutrition to assist the healing process.
Dr. Pfau is licensed in Nevada to practice both general medicine, as well as homeopathy.
