​Dr Scott confronts the conventional ways of looking at illness by suggesting it's not an enemy to be fought, but bodily expressions of spiritual wounds that guide us to our inner work. 

 

Dr Scott is a Public Health Professional that has worked with more than 20,000 patients over the past two decades.  He is devoted to helping his patients achieve optimal health through personal transformation.   

 

Dr. Scott is a practitioner of Functional Medicine, Complementary & Alternative Medicine and Transpersonal Psychology – all philosophical approaches that are designed to help treat the whole person, not just the disease.

 

"I have been powerfully influenced by the great insights and personal training from Stanislav Grof,  a Czech psychiatrist, founder of Holiotropic Breathwork™ and one of the founders of the field of transpersonal psychology.  Grof and his colleagues Abraham Maslow and Aldous Huxley, pioneered research into the use of non-ordinary states of consciousness for purposes of exploring, healing, and obtaining growth and insights into the human psyche."

Dr. Scott's work has incorporated transpersonal / spiritualually oriented psychotherapy with various other modalities including breathwork as well as the use of Ayahuasca - an entheogenic brew made out of Banisteriopsis caapi vine and other ingredients. The brew is used as a traditional spiritual medicine in ceremonies among the Indigenous peoples of the Amazon basin.  

 

Dr Scott received his training in extracting functional and nutritional information from his patients’ blood tests from Naturopathic Physician, Dr. Dicken Weatherby, a world leading expert in Functional Blood Chemistry Analysis and  author of the  bestselling book “Blood Chemistry and CBC Analysis – Clinical Laboratory Testing from a Functional Perspective“ -  a seminal text on the functional analysis of blood test results.

Verena Young

Sociologist & Social Psychologist

Reconnective Healing

Addiction Recovery

 

Verena is a Sociologist & Social Psychologist (MS) currently finishing her PhD in Educational Science. Her scientific research focus on well-being and its promoting factors during childhood & youth development. Finding preventions to avoid struggles later on in life was one of her interests during her scientific career at the university of Bielefeld, Germany. Besides her scientific perspective, she received training and education in several other modalities to support well-being of people from a practitioner’s standpoint. Her areas of expertise are:

 

  • PsychoSpiritual Integration Coaching

  • Transformational Addiction Recovery Coaching

  • Reconnective Healing

  • Systemic Family Constellation Therapy

 

In 2018, Verena became a certified Foundational Practitioner of Reconnective Healing - a comprehensive healing approach within the field of Energy Healthcare, recognized for its capacity to stimulate an individual’s return to balance, harmony, and well-being on all levels - physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual.

 

Verena studied Systemic Family Constellation at the Hellinger Institute in Toronto since 2018. Family Constellation is a powerful method that can help you recognize difficult entanglements in your family of origin, your present family or relationships. This awareness supports your healing of thought and behavioral patterns that can change your life, and enhance your well-being. Systemic Family Therapy was first developed by the German therapist, Bert Hellinger. In his therapeutic approach, the individual is considered part of a greater system – rather than as a separate entity. His or her individual behavior, feelings and attitudes, have to be understood in the context of this larger group. Family constellation sessions can be done in groups or one-on-one with a therapist.

Verena co-founded Orlando IV Therapy - Natural Health & Wellness in 2019 to offer a well-rounded approach of natural healing options to people in her local community of Avalon Park. Verena is on a naturopathic healing path most of her life. She researched natural alternatives for her family since a very young age, especially the advantages of nutrition, homeopathic remedies, and many other naturopathic & alternative approaches.  She discovered IV Infusion Therapy and its benefits a number of years ago for jetlag during her international travels to Germany, as immune & performance support while living with little kids, and for weight loss. Her goal is to combine natural treatments like IV drips for weight-loss & Nutritional Coaching to achieve the ultimate healing experience for the clients of Orlando IV Therapy.
