Consultations are also offered in New York City. Her training includes Classical Homeopathy, Radionics, Medical Radiesthesia, Subtle Energy Healing, Emotional/Spiritual/Grief Counseling, Nutrition, Herbal Medicine, Ayurveda and Detoxification Methods. Her health and cleansing programs have been offered to her patients for more than 30 years.
Naturopathic physicians prefer non-invasive treatments, which minimize the risks of harmful side effects. Health or disease comes from a complex interaction of physical, emotional, mental, dietary, genetic, environmental, lifestyle, and other factors. Heavy Metals, Chemicals, Radiation and Parasites all play an important role in the analysis of the health of the patient.
Every illness has an underlying cause, which could be from diet and habits of the individual. Naturopathic physicians treat the whole person and take all these factors into account. A naturopathic physician is trained to find and facilitate removal of the underlying cause of disease to allow for the body’s own innate ability to heal.
The original meaning of the word “doctor” is teacher. A principal objective of naturopathic medicine is to educate the patient and emphasize self-responsibility for health. Naturopathic and Homeopathic physicians recognize the importance of the doctor-patient relationship.
Light Harmonics Institute has been at the forefront in the current trend of the Integration of Medicines. Thousands of students have trained with Dr. Linda over the years and she continues to teach the art, philosophy and understanding of “healing”.
She has treated more than 10,000 patients in over 30 years of practice and has developed a system of medicine, which is now referred to as Light Harmonics Healing. Dr. Lancaster was Yogi Bhajan’s personal physician and remained by his side until his passing. He honored her with the Conscious Healer and Humanitarian Award in 2002.
In an effort to create peace in healing, Dr. Linda founded The Global Foundation for Integrative Medicines (GFIM) and is the current GFIM President.
As the son of Dr. Linda Lancaster, Dr. John grew up in an environment of healthy food and natural medicines. Homeopathy, Herbs, Bach Flowers, and Organic Produce were the way of life. Because of this, it only made sense that John would eventually follow the path of Health Care and Healing. In 2003 John travelled to Sri Lanka to study with one of his mother’s masters, Prof. Dr. Anton Jayasuriya, known fondly as “Prof.” He planned to stay for one month and ended up staying six. The days were rigorous spending four hours per day in lecture and six hours in clinic—learning Acupuncture, Homeopathy, Physical Therapy, Osteopathic techniques, Bio-Medicine and seeing diseases and disorders that are usually only read about in books. The time spent in Sri Lanka was invaluable and John always says the best thing “Prof” ever taught him was how to “Be” with the patient, how to sympathize, empathize and really listen to every patient that is encountered.
In 2004, Prof. Dr. Anton Jayasuriya awarded John a Doctorate in Acupuncture. That same year, after arriving back in the USA, John enrolled in Southwest Acupuncture College, located in Santa Fe, NM. SWAC offers a wonderful Oriental Medicine program which stresses not only the importance of Traditional Chinese Medicine theory, but also offers a wealth of knowledge in Western Medicine. After four years of school John was awarded a Master of Science in Oriental Medicine and attained the recognition of Diplomate in Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM).
Because Healthcare and Healing is a life-long study, John is currently studying with Dr. Lancaster and immersing himself in Homeopathy, Bach Flowers, and Ayurveda.

He is also a licensed Acupuncturist in New York and makes regular visits to Manhattan.
