Thank you for visiting my website. I am Dr. Fred Bloem from Olney, Maryland, and I have a holistic and integrative medical practice. If you are like most people, you were referred to me by one of my other patients. Perhaps you have suffered with a health condition for a long time and you have consulted with a lot of other physicians or health practitioners, and you have either been told that there is nothing wrong with you; or the recommended treatments were not effective or only temporarily masked or suppressed symptoms. Some patients are simply looking for a good personal physician for themselves or for their whole family. These are people who need more than a rushed 15-minutes-or-less face time with a physician in a crowded medical office. They recognize that over the years the mechanic spent more time with their cars than their doctors did with them..
Whatever led you here, you came to the right place. My background is in family medicine, so I am comfortable treating adult men, women, and children with a wide variety of health concerns. My desire to be a better physician for my patients led me to start my own medical practice and broaden my educational horizons.
After practicing as a traditional allopathic physician for several years, it became clear to me that Western medicine as it is being taught and practiced by most physicians today has its limitations. One of the main concerns that I had was that many of the allopathic treatments do not address the underlying causes of a patient’s illness. I recognized that many common diseases, such as hypertension, diabetes, arthritis, and others were linked to obesity. However, like most physicians, I felt unprepared to help my patients lose weight.
Postgraduate training in bariatric medicine, bio-identical hormone therapies, orthomolecular medicine, and energy medicine (NeuroModulation Technique (NMT) and Emotional Freedom Technique), has made it possible for me to help my patients more effectively, more quickly, and with safer treatment methods.
Besides that, I am now able to help my patients with a much wider variety of health concerns. They include:
- All allergies
- All autoimmune diseases
- Acute and chronic musculoskeletal conditions.
- Crohn’s disease, irritable syndrome
- Diabetes mellitus
- Emotional, psychological, and sensory/motor neurological disturbances
- Infectious diseases
It is the combination of my genuine concern for my patients’ well-being and attention to detail, my traditional medical training, my experience in helping patients with their weight problems, safe nutritional, natural, and energetic treatments that makes my practice unique.
Please contact me if you have any questions.
Fred Bloem, M.D.
