Therefore, he has received medical training more versatile than most MDs educated in the USA. He is licensed to practice medicine in most European and Asian countries. Under his nutritional license he can focus on his chosen fields of holistic scientific medicine, including comprehensive nutritional, anti-aging, environmental, preventive & functional medicine, effective functional laboratory tests, consulting, research, writing, and lecturing.
Dr. T’s approach to patient care relies on science-based education and nutritional therapy utilizing advanced functional laboratory tests (assessing the potential causes and process of disease) needed to enhance health, support anti-disease processes, or prevent disease progression; to predict individual susceptibility to various disorders; and to enhance productive longevity. This leads to individualized nutritional and functional therapy. The patient must take responsibility for her own health, and therefore becomes less dependent on doctors (holistic or allopathic) except for occasional lab or clinical monitoring. This type of care is more effective and less costly or risky. Dr. T works with patients who experience fatigue, fibromyalgia, cancer, viral-bacterial-yeast-parasitic infections (herpes, Lyme, Candida), cardiovascular illnesses, diabetes, weight gain, OBGYN issues, Detoxification, chronic inflammatory conditions, depression, anxiety, cognitive dysfunction (loss of memory, focus, etc.), genetic – genomic susceptibilities to toxins, developmental spectrum (ADD/ADHD/PDD/Autism) & auto-immune disorders (lupus, arthritis scleroderma, etc.), chemical sensitivities, food and environmental allergies, gastrointestinal-digestive problems, osteoporosis, ear & throat infections, sinusitis, childhood disease, neurodegenerative diseases (MS, dementia, Parkinson, Alzheimer, ALS), dermatitis, eczema, acne, moles and blemishes (natural, pain-free, non-surgical, non-medical, non-scarring nutrition-based removal of most skin growths and mucous membrane warts), and other internal and external health challenges.

* Doctor of Chiropractic: trained & board certified in the USA; graduated class valedictorian and highest scorer of a National Board Medical Science Exam in the entire history of the Chiropractic Profession in the USA - 800 of 800 possible points; licensed by the State Boards of Minnesota and Oklahoma between 1990 and 2001; retired from chiropractic in 2001 to focus on nutritional, functional, and laboratory medicine (but kept updating Minnesota license to honor the profession of chiropractic, despite the retirement from active practice); gave up ("surrendered") this unneeded license in 2009 in order to terminate a tiring, expensive, time-consuming 3-year-long harassment by the Minnesota medical board (pressuring the chiropractic board) after helping the mentally-unhealthy adult son of a powerful medical-political woman in the House of Representatives. This Representative, who had strong ties with the psychiatric profession and supported the psychiatric drug treatment model that failed her son, was apparently threatened by the natural approach that her son adopted instead. The case was dismissed since the patient himself did not complain (only his combative mother complained!), but was strangely re-opened (an unheard-of occurrence!) 2 years later because of political pressure from the medical board (full documentation of this case available upon request, now that the patient has contacted Dr. Tel-Oren to apologize for the harm done by his mother and has given his written permission by email to expose the story, 7 years after the fact).
