Victor Tsan, MD is the 61 years old medical practitioner, founder of the Philadelphia Holistic Clinic. Victor Tsan, Doctor of Medicine, is a world legendary practitioner of alternative medical techniques including acupuncture, homeopathy, clinical hypnotherapy, reiki and more.
First of all, Victor Tsan, MD is the Medical Doctor, the experienced physician, who at some point decided to dedicate his profession to holistic and naturopathic medicine. In a few words, one can say about him “Doctor Tsan is the medical doctor that practice alternative medicine.” Why is this so important? Becuase, when physician evaluates a patient, the assessment includes classical diagnostic along with holistic. “Being so-called old-fashion physician” – Dr. Tsan says – “I always do percussion, palpation, and auscultation and only after that I may recommend X-RAY, CT or MRI.” I do not understand why some medical doctors refer patients for echocardiography, without listening to the heartbeats with a simple stethoscope or to ultrasound evaluation of the abdomen without palpation.”
Victor Tsan’s education and experience
Doctor Tsan graduated medical school at the Nicolae Testemițanu State University of Medicine and Pharmacy in 1976 and completed his residency in OB-GYN. While leading an infertility clinic in the former Soviet Union, Doctor Tsan implemented acupuncture and homeopathic treatments for male and female infertility and surprisingly received much better results than from traditional hormone replacement therapy.
Based on his daily work, Victor Tsan, MD realized that more than 50 percent of the patients in fertility clinic also suffer from chronic depression due to inability to conceive and get a baby. “Depression makes their chance to get pregnant even smaller since many endocrine glands including ovaries, pituitary gland, thyroid and cortex produce an insufficient amount of hormones as a result of unstable emotional condition” – Doctor Tsan says. “I decided” – Dr. Tsan continues “to learn clinical hypnotherapy also to help my patients to overcome their depression.”
For two years Doctor Tsan learned hypnotherapy and neuro-linguistic programming from the world's most famous hypnotist alive Jonathan Royle in London, England.
“Since everything that I did (acupuncture, homeopathy, hypnotherapy) fell in the category of Holistic Medicine” – continues Doctor Tsan – “I realized that I have to treat patients in general instead of treating diseases in them.” Based on this decision he started seeing more patients with internal diseases and at some point completely switched from OB-GYN to Holistic Medicine.
In 2008 Victor Tsan, MD completed two years of internship in acupuncture at the Beijing Academy of Chinese Medical Sciences.
