About Dr Susan Kolb
Biographical Information on Dr Susan Kolb
How I became interested in medicine and the type of medicine practiced.
In 1975, I moved from arid Lubbock, Texas to hot and humid Houston, Texas to attend medical school at UTMSH. Soon after arriving in Houston I developed allergic rhinitis, then allergic sinusitis, then infective sinusitis, then bronchitis, and finally pneumonia. I sought help from the chairman of the UTMSH Allergy and Immunology department, then the chairman of the UTMSH Ear, Nose and Throat department and finally the chairman of the UTMSH Pulmonary department. I continued to get progressively worse, despite following the instructions of these chairmen and taking their recommended drugs. Fortunately, my wife’s grandmother came to visit us in Houston. She was a school teacher and self-taught nutritionist. She took me to the health food store and got me started on some vitamins, minerals, and herbs. I then rapidly improved and was able to perform well in medical school again.
In my spare time during medical school, residency and fellowship, I read books on orthomolecular nutritional therapies, on Western herbal therapies, on Eastern herbal therapies, on homeopathy, on fixed magnetic therapies, diet, lifestyle, and so on. As I learned new things, I would apply this new knowledge to my own health and the health of my family and friends. The success that I had with these integrative therapies gradually improved. In 1984, I finished my fellowship training in cardiology and critical care medicine at St. Louis University and opened a partnership practice with another doctor who had gone through the same training program with me. We were on the staff at several hospitals and did hospital rounds twice a day, mostly in the intensive care units. I saw many of my patients improve to the point of leaving the hospital. However, after a month or two, many of them were back in the hospital with the same problems, because they had not changed their lifestyle or diet nor supplemented with nutrients. After one year of this type of practice, I decided two things. First, I was intervening much too far downstream in these patients’ lives to make the kind of difference I wanted to make. And second, I realized that I could no longer, in good conscience, practice a type of medicine on my patients that I then knew was inferior to the type of medicine I was practicing on myself, my family, and my friends. I then set up a preventive medicine/preventive cardiology practice in St. Louis. Shortly after that, I moved to Dallas, Texas. I could not find another doctor who had a similar philosophy of practice, so I rented an office space across the street from the busiest hospital in Dallas. As fate would have it, my office was also between the elevator and the busiest cardiologist in town. Many patients came to see me after they left the office of the cardiologist down the hall, who had a four-month waiting list.
I often recommended nutrients to my patients and would send them to local health food stores to get their therapy. The health food stores soon started referring patients as they saw my patients coming in with better and better health each visit. The patients who were referred were those who had failed conventional allopathic medical therapy and had failed self-treatment. My practice grew from a few patients in 1987 to four thousand patients in 1994. I had to close the Dallas practice in 1994. Because of the extreme stress of that practice, my wife, who helped manage the practice, and I had both developed unstable angina (a heart attack waiting to happen), as well as likely malignant conditions. I used only natural, non-invasive means to treat my wife’s and my conditions. When I went back into practice after recovering our health, I spent much of my time travelling and teaching, which I still do to this day.
Areas of greatest interest in medicine.
I have a passion to educate health professionals how to use all the different diagnostic and therapeutic modalities that are available in integrative medicine to help their patients, especially those patients who are given no help and no hope by the allopathic medical community.
Therapeutic modalities I have used.
Diagnostically, in addition to the usual allopathic history-taking, physical exam, laboratory testing and imaging procedures, I have used evaluative kinesiology, Chinese pulse assessment, sclerology, iridology, Chinese tongue and fingernail evaluation, and various forms of electro-dermal screening. Recently, I have found the fully-automated, quantitative electro-dermal screening systems to be the most useful single diagnostic aid. Therapeutically, I use diet, lifestyle counseling, emotional counseling, Recall Healing, EMDR, REMAP, Thought-Field Therapy, orthomolecular nutrient therapy, herbal therapies, homeopathic therapies, fixed-magnetic therapies, pulsed-electro-magnetic frequency therapies, oxidative therapies (ozone, IV hydrogen peroxide, etc.), color therapies, laser and other photonic therapies, sauna-therapy, colon hydrotherapy, lymphatic-drainage, modified fasting and various other detox therapies, German Neural therapy, reflexology, electro-acupressure therapy, Ki-Iki-Jyutsu therapy, and prayer (just to name those I use most often).
Health conditions with which I have had the greatest success.
I have had very good success treating non-invasively the following conditions: atherosclerotic disease, cardiomyopathy and congestive heart failure, high blood pressure, all types of arthritis, chronic fatigue, Lyme disease, Autism, most cancers, type 1 and 2 diabetes, chronic sinusitis and a variety of other chronic diseases.
About Dr Lu-Jean Feng
Lu-Jean Feng, M.D., is the founder and medical director of The Lu-Jean Feng Clinic and is the one and only plastic and reconstructive surgeon on staff. She is a Board-Certified Microvascular Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon, and has more than 28 years of experience and is recognized on a global level.
While she specializes in cosmetic surgery of the face, breast and body, Dr. Feng is recognized for being one of the first to use autogenous tissue for breast reconstruction, which gained national attention in the 80s. Today, she is one of a few plastic surgeons in the U.S. to offer natural breast enhancement using the patient’s own regenerative cells and fat tissue—a no-implant procedure without scarring, and with significantly less recovery time. Most recently, she made an impact in the industry again when she published her paper, “Painless Abdominoplasty,” introducing a series of nerve blocks to dramatically reduce pain and discomfort and cut the recovery time in half.
Another significant characteristic which sets Dr. Feng apart includes her no nausea anesthesia rule. All of her anesthesiologists (M.D.s) are required to minimize the use of gas and instead administer fast acting anesthetics through an IV in the arm. The anesthetics completely leave the body within six minutes after the surgery ends, so the patients wake up quickly, clear-headed, and without nausea.
Dr. Feng’s personal goal and that of her associates and specialists is to become an advisor to each patient, helping them achieve inner and outer balance by incorporating the principles of both eastern and western medicine. It is this open-minded and holistic approach to healthcare that brings patients to The Lu-Jean Feng Clinic from all 50 states in the U.S. and more than 28 countries around the world.

Izabella enjoys sharing what has worked so successfully for her – what saved her life when she was destined for death in 1989. At that stage she hated herself so much and felt such unworthiness that she just wanted to die.This experience at the age of 14 was also the first time that she became consciously aware of her Inner Being when she heard the words ‘You are going to die’. Instantly she knew this was make-or-break time. Something changed inside for her in that moment. She listened. Her Inner Being began to reveal to her everything that was needed for her full recovery. This saved her life. To this moment trusting her Inner Being is paramount in her life, feeling her power, joy, love and living alive who she truly is whilst opening eternally to who she is becoming.
Having become aware of her Inner Being’s guidance Izabella also realized that this is available to everybody. And it’s easy, reproducible and requires nothing on the outside to happen in order for it to work. Usually there’s nothing drastic that needs to change in your external life, for the work is internal.
