Speaker's Information

Speaker Bio

Dr. Hadassah Hilewitz started out her career in the conventional medical field, attaining a Master’s degree in Biological Sciences, and then proceeding to work in various fields such as clinical research, non-invasive cardiac testing, and as a supervisor of an endocrinology lab.

Circumstances led Dr. Hilewitz to pursue a degree in Acupuncture, graduating 30 years ago, which she taught and practiced intensively for 10 years. Through learning and integrating the Chinese medicine philosophy, Dr. Hilewitz came to understand healing and the human experience differently, with a deep recognition that we live on all 4 planes of existence – physical, mental, emotional and spiritual and cannot separate the physical from the mind and the body, leading to interconnectedness.

Dr. Hilewitz left her practice of acupuncture and went on to study naturopathic medicine graduating with a Naturopathic Doctor degree from Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine (SCNM) in 2011. After completing a 2-year residency at the Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA) Dr. Hilewitz continued as a staff member practicing naturopathic oncology.

In 2015 Dr. Hilewitz joined a Naturopathic Primary Care practice in San Diego, supporting the care of patients with many conditions including autoimmune, cancer, chronic fatigue, hormonal and more. In 2020 Dr. Hilewitz returned to Israel and is continuing to support individuals using various modalities.
