Dr. Arlette Pharo, D.O., Holistic Family Physician founder of The Healing Arts Medical Center and AwakenHealth Medical Center.
Dr. Pharo's Vision is to empower each person's individual choice for health through Integrative Medicine (blending Conventional and Alternative Medicine) and "AwakenHealth Programs".
I am Dr. Arlette Pharo, D.O. founder of The Healing Arts Medical Center and AwakenHealth Medical Center.I am a licensed physician in the state of Texas. I specialize in Integrative Medicine. This integrative "blend" provides my patients a diverse spectrum of healing modalities to "Awaken Health" and the opportunity to experience the best of both worlds -Traditional and Holistic Medicine.
The quote you see on my website"Treating The Unique Individual, Not Just Symptoms"means I believe in YOU, and your individual health needs. Symptoms may present in a similar way with various patients, however, the best healing path can be quite diverse for each individual. My treatment programs are not the same (one size fits all) for everyone. I provide quality time to discover each patient's unique health needs and custom design the best "AwakenHealth" Treatment Plan and Healing Direction for each individual.
Dr. Arlette Pharo's AwakenHealth Vision Statement
I would like you to understand my vision and philosophy that has developed into"AwakenHealth"over the 25 years that I have been in private practice as a Holistic Family Physician. I have discovered that in today's "hurry-up-world" some very important healing ingredients are often missing in most traditional medical practices. The success in the equation of healing often includes a number of healing modalities, treatment plans, therapies, medications, ingredients, components, various medical practitioners and physicians. However, the important constant in every equation that often gets left out of focus is the most essential…You! I strive to add more to my New Patient Appointments and Treatment Programs than just looking at a patient’s chart and treating apparent symptoms. I want my patients to have time to share their experience, voice their opinion and participate in our search for the underlying cause of symptoms. I want all my patients to understand how their unique medical history, lifestyle, age, stress factors, diet, family and work environments all influence the function of their health. I help my patients understand the cause and effect of illness as well as empower their understanding about their choices for wellness, prevention and awakened health. My "AwakenHealth Programs" encourage a deeper understanding and a commitment from you, the patient. Hopefully you are now asking,"What is AwakenHealth" ? Good. These are some of the first steps in Awakening Your Health: Asking questions, taking time to get new information and opening your mind to new possibilities. This is my vision for AwakenHealth. It's all about you! For more information, I invite you to continue reading the section below: "What Does AwakenHealth Mean?"
"The most essential element in your healing is YOU!"
Dr. Arlette Pharo, D.O. Founder of The Healing Arts Medical Center & AwakenHealth Medical Center

During her teaching years she received her Masters of Education from Texas Christian University in Fort Worth, TX. With the help of a wonderful friend who taught at Texas College of Osteopathic Medicine, he encouraged her to take all of her education, desire and passion to become an Osteopathic Physician. And so she did.
Dr. Pharo graduated from Texas College of Osteopathic Medicine in 1988. Dr. Pharo did her internship in Houston and opened her first office in 1989.

There are two physicians licensed to practice medicine in the United States: D.O. (osteopathic physicians) and M.D. (allopathic physicians).
�Doctors of Osteopathic Medicine combine the art of healing with the art of caring..." _John B. Crosby, J.D. Executive Director, AOA
Similarities between D.O. and M.D.: - 4-year undergraduate degree, 4 year medical degree - After medical school both can specialize - Must pass state licensing exams for physicians - Both practice in fully accredited and licensed health care facilities - Both are licensed to prescribe medications - D.O. and M.D. have the same rights, privileges, and responsibilities
Extra's a D.O. brings to medicine: - Practice "whole person" approach - Emphasize prevention and whole body wellness - Extra training in musculoskeletal system: D.O.s believe that all of the body's systems work together and that disturbances in one system may impact function elsewhere in the body. -Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment: (OMT) is the use of the physician�s hands to diagnosis injury and illness and to encourage the body's natural tendency toward good health. People of all ages can benefit from the many benefits of OMT. OMT can relieve pain and dysfunction as well as improve mobility. OMT can treat physical aliments such as back and neck pain. OMT can be used to relieve the discomfort associated with asthma, sinus disorder, carpal tunnel, migraines, menstrual pain, and post hysterectomy pain. "To find health should be the object of the doctor. Anyone can find disease." _Dr. A. T. Still, Founder Osteopathic Medicine
