About Us

Welcome! First, let me introduce you to my practice.

My name is Basha Gerstenfeld. I am a board certified doctoral student here at Basha Holistics. I specialize in psychoneuroimmunology, the study of the effect of the mind on health and resistance to disease. In a sense, I am a generalist. I connect all the complex medical dots. I enjoy solving real life medical mysteries. I can offer you extra wellness treats, such as soothing infrared therapy, auriculotherapy, vagus nerve stimulation for relaxation, and more. Listen to learn more about how I can help you with your health goals.

For Cancer Patients

Mindset made him sick, and mindset made him better. Learn about the most powerful asset you have; your mind. Dr. Robert Zembroski was given the terrifying news that he had a 5 inch tumor in his chest.
This is how he took charge of his life again.

For Spiritual Understanding

Dr. Amit Goswami is a physicist who focuses on the implications of quantum physics in medicine. He explains theories of the universe and health in a way that eloquently merges belief and science. His main premise is that (quantum) consciousness is the ground of all being.

Disproportionately Pear-Shaped ?

The disease they call 'fat'. Thankfully, there is a clear, physiological difference between obesity, lipedema, and lymphedema. If you are female and it seems that you have a disproportionate distribution of fat in your legs compared to the rest of your body, and especially if your legs are lumpy and sensitive/painful to the touch, you'll be glad you found this video. Talk to a lipedema-aware physician about lipedema. They are usually vascular doctors, sometimes dermatologists, and maybe endocrinologists. Dr. Karen Herbst is currently the most renown lipedema specialist in the USA. Lymphoscintigraphy is used to diagnose it, but it can be painful. Usually, a clinical diagnosis suffices.

For Weight Loss

Dr. Jason Fung, author of The Obesity Code explains how weight loss is not achieved through the "calories in, calories out" model. He explains how insulin works to control fat storage, what fasting does, and how to use this knowledge to achieve weight loss. This elegantly and humorously explains how we have gotten it wrong for so many years. What ever happened to those Biggest Loser contestants?!

For Multiple Conditions

Dr. Ross Hauser works with patients to improve so many common symptoms. As it turns out, so many issues such as visual disturbances, cervical radiculopathy, vertigo, Ménière's disease, TMJ, and swallowing difficulties, and more can all be related to the degeneration or physical impingement of the vagus nerve. Learn how various techniques have been incredibly effective in the relief of all of these not-so-subtle warning bells.

Understanding Quantum Medicine

Dr. Tracey Clark has experienced incredible phenomena in her clinic. She noticed that whenever her intake forms guided patients through more positive questions about their life and health status, miraculously, her patients experienced more healing and overall happiness after their appointments. This exemplifies everything that Einstein explained in his "Spooky Action At a Distance" phenomena, where forces beyond the physical exuded their effects. 

For Those Who Feel Limited

To create a new you, you must go from thinking, to doing, to being. If you always do the same routine, you are literally staying in the same frame of mind. Same neurons are firing, the same outcomes happen, and you end up in the same place you started. As Dr. Dispenza says, “you can't think better than how you feel, therefore you are thinking in the past.” Changes are possible and can be drastic. Begin the transformational proccess.

Understanding Functional Medicine

Dr. Mark Hyman explains that, functional medicine is the medicine of why. It connects the dots between all the things that are going wrong in our biology. Medicine generally is good at pointing out what is wrong, but it falls short at explaining why they have gone awry. In the realm of functional medicine, we are super generalists. Everything is connected.

Unexplained Shortness of Breath

If you have been searching for a long time for an explanation of why you can't seem to have enough oxygen and energy to do simple tasks, listen up! If your cardiology and lung tests don't reveal any issue, you might have a mitochondrial dysfunction impairing  extraction of oxygen in your blood from your muscles. This video explains why, and the physiology of the issue. You might need an invasive cardiopulmonary exercise test, an iCPET. This test can differentiate between poor fitness and a true physiological problem, whether it be hidden heart, lung, or muscular issues. A muscle biopsy may be further needed to confirm a mitochondria condition.

Dr. Berg explains that with any diet, the most important part is sustainability. Most people go off their diets because of cravings. This prevents any diet from working. The number 1 reason people are overweight is because of too much insulin in the body. This is caused from an excess intake of carbs and sugar. Insulin creates fat within us, and we cannot lose weight at the same time. This video explains how to solve this issue.

Finally End Yoyo Dieting
How Intermittent Fasting Changes Everything

Thomas Delauer explains how the process of autophagy helps cells use their own waste, dead proteins, and toxic cell material to create new cell parts and create long lasting energy in the body. Autophagy is activated when we eat or exercise in a particular way, including fasting. The more food we consume, the more our bodies have to clean up. Occasional autophagy is healthy and is neuroprotective, and can protect us from cancers as well.
