Dr. A. Schaeffer-Pautz, MD at the Persephone Healing Arts Center in Jacksonville Beach, has recently acquired an additional board certification in Integrative Medicine, awarded by the American Board of Specialty Physicians (ABPS). Dr. Pautz is also board certified in Internal Medicine (ABIM). As a Diplomate of the American Board of Integrative and Holistic Medicine (ABIHM), Dr. Pautz is one of the early adopters of holistic medicine in the medical field in the Jacksonville area. For many years, the clinic at the beaches has provided internal medicine services balanced with integrative holistic medicine.
Dr. Pautz and her staff are happy that the new Integrative-Medicine certificati
on opens more options and expands services for the clinic’s patients. With new and different resources and research-based scientific studies, the clinic has extended its repertoire in disease-specific interventions, bio-nutritionals, medically-guided diets, supplements, and phyto-therapeutics, as well as energy medicine, meditation, and exercise.
In addition to conventional medicine, the clinic also provides naturopathy, homeopathy, diet counseling, manual treatment, art therapy, eurhythmy, and Anthroposohic medicine. Dr. Pautz also works with autism, advanced cancer, disease management, and counseling.
