About Dr. Alice W. Lee-Bloem

Born in Taiwan, raised in Utah, and living now in Maryland, I have ranged just as widely in my interests: from an early interest in creative writing, on to allopathic medicine, into orthomolecular psychiatry, and onward to energy medicine. Life has been for me a mix of contrasting experiences, widely varied in perspective and effect, helping me to develop a knack for integrating ideas, creating synthesis, and connecting concepts.

As a holistic psychiatrist, I integrate at least three fields of study: allopathic psychiatry, orthomolecular psychiatry, and energy medicine. Each field has its history of supporting scientific and empirical evidence: biochemistry, neuroanatomy, nutrition, quantum physics, and Eastern medicine.

I was trained at the University of Maryland in adult psychiatry, spending a whole year concentrating on the treatment of eating disorders. Then I trained as a child and adolescent psychiatrist at Children’s National Medical Center in Washington, D.C. In both training centers, the education was superb and well balanced in both psychopharmacology and psychotherapy.

However, my work in orthomolecular psychiatry began when I encountered patients who came to me young, chronically ill despite being heavily medicated, and debilitated by medication side effects. I looked for a way to help these young people find a better way to health. My search led to nutritional supplements, and my early clinical experiences with them convinced me that they had powerful healing value. Those early patients have been able to come off all medications and move on with their lives.

By being an orthomolecular psychiatrist and one familiar with energy healing, my clinical goals have changed over the years. In the past, my clinical goal was to help patients be well while on medication. Now, my clinical goal is to help patients to no longer be patients. Using nutritional supplementation and integrating healing techniques in energy medicine have freed many patients in my care from a dependency on medications and on me. More than that, it has returned them to a state of true health and wellness.

My education in orthomolecular psychiatry and energy medicine continues to grow through conferences, books, and direct mentorship by other orthomolecular physicians and energy healers. Today, many conferences in orthomolecular psychiatry/medicine provide continuing medical education (CME) credit hours–a new and welcome trend that supports the medical science behind this treatment approach.

However, the more I learn about the biochemistry of nutritional healing, the more I comprehend its complexity. It gets to be ridiculous when the cost of nutritional supplements and the amount that is recommended place the treatment regimen beyond the patient’s ability to afford or to follow it. Simplicity is also needed.

I believe that energy medicine can simplify healing. Many techniques in the field of energy medicine are simple to learn, widely applicable, and highly efficacious. Often times, energy medicine also has the added advantage of being pill-free. In 2005, I presented at a conference held by the Association for Comprehensive Energy Psychology (ACEP) on the use of consciousness and intention in healing mental illness. I have developed a systematic approach in the field of energy medicine using consciousness, intention, and meditative visualization to facilitate healing. It is called “Infinite Intention.”

Through my writing, teaching, and CDs, I intend to educate others about the profound possibilities for transformation and healing when a practitioner synthesizes the principles found in orthomolecular psychiatry and energy medicine. My life is dedicated to creative freedom through healing the mind. Through service, education, healing, and simply being, my goal is to help move creative freedom into new frontiers for the 21st century.

Dr. Schaafsma Specializes in Not Only BioIdentical Hormone Replacement, Functional Medicine, Anti-Aging, Integrative & Regenerative Medicine But Also In Intravenous Nutrition Therapy:

Intravenous nutrition means that the vitamins or nutraceuticals are administered directly in the  vein through an I.V.

I.V. Nutrition is used usually in conjunction with oral therapy. The advantage of I.V. is that we can achieve much higher concentration of nutrients in serum compared to oral route. These high levels are the key which allow certain nutrients, like Vitamin C to become bactericidal (kill bacteria), antiviral, or kill cancer cells, Depending on dosage, and all this with no significant side effects!

In the case of aging or ailing cells (chronic illness, malabsorption, cancer…), intravenous nutrients may achieve a serum concentration which provides a gradient to allow the nutrients to flow or be transported into the cell.

Some of the Indications for Nutritional IV’s are:

  •       Allergic rhinitis
  • ·         Asthma
  • ·         Bacterial illnesses
  • ·         Cancer (See N.I.H. studies) (National Institute of Health)
  • ·         Cardiovascular disease
  • ·         Chemical toxicity
  • ·         Mercury, lead, cadmium,
  • ·         arsenic, nickel
  • ·         Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
  • ·         COPD
  • ·         Hypoadrenalism (adrenal fatigue/stress)
  • ·         Immune disorders
  • ·         Bacterial Infections
  • ·         Macular degeneration
  • ·         Migraine
  • ·         Multiple sclerosis
  • ·         Muscle Spasms
  • ·         Neurologic Disorders
  • ·         Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s
  • ·         Disease
  • ·         Viral illnesses
  • ·         It is an excellent tool to prepare for surgery. It decreases the rate of infections, complications, scar formation and hospitalization.

In some cases we can ameliorate the symptoms to more bearable levels and in other cases we can totally correct the presenting condition.

People that are sensitive to certain nutrients orally tolerate the same nutrient I.V. well.
