What is Dr. Aidlin’s field of specialization?
Dr. Yakov Aidlin completed his medical studies in Russia in 1982, specializing in psychotherapy. After several years of working in the field, he was appointed to district physician and served as the head of psychiatry and psychotherapy.
He established a private clinic, the first of its kind, specializing in a unique method of curing addictions, stuttering, psychosomatic disorders and neuroses. In 1990 he immigrated to Israel, and continued his work based on his extensive experience in the field of curing addictions. As his work grew he began to develop his own unique health theory and special method unique to curing food addictions.
Dr. Aidlin’s method is based on applied psychology, general knowledge in medicine, practical fundamentals of Far Eastern theories and personal experience. Dr. Aidlin gives courses on “The Theory of Health” at his offices at the Aidlin Institute in Brooklyn NY.
