Dr. Benjamin Alter: Transform Your Life from a
Battleground to a Playground
You guys might know who I (Dr. Benjamin) Am... sort of.
In this episode, hopefully you are able to get to know me on a more intimate level. That is the intention of this conversation anyhow. It was a stretch to open up and share myself a littler bit more vulnerably, but it is an action step that I've been wanting to take in the spirit of creating a more connected Healing Community.
If you listened to the very first episode, you learned a bit about my back story and what drew me into the field of medicine. Here, we take a few leaps into greater depth to understand more dimensions of my healing journey and my philosophies around holistic health, psychology, meditation, and life in general.
Some highlights include...
- My passions outside of medicine
- Why I stopped meditating after 6 years of consistent practice
- The spiritual journey in healing
- My viewpoint on a plant based diet for humans
- What healing truly means
- Why learning, growing, evolving, and healing are all one in the same
Hope you enjoy! Please feel free to leave a comment, rating, or review on whatever platform you choose to tune in on!

About Dr. Benjamin
After falling from his skateboard and breaking his wrist at age 12, Benjamin knew he wanted to be a physician. His obsession with the human body evolved to encompass an obsession with the mind after a second broken hand, this time upon flying over the handlebars of his mountain bike during his final year of premedical studies at the University of Arizona. His broken right hand catalyzed a “quarter-life crisis” that involved an intense and rapid shift of consciousness.
Today, Dr. Benjamin’s passions of mind and body are blended into the services that he offers his patients. He believes the most basic and simple lifestyle practices and habits that we engage in throughout our day-to-day human existence can be the most powerful medicine available. With all patients and clients, Dr. Benjamin always aims to show each individual that they are their own true healer, fully capable of healing any condition and maintaining a resilient state of vibrant health and wellbeing throughout life.
