I believe that a high level of commitment to your health is essential for achieving and maintaining optimal wellness. Often it is helpful to have a guide to help uncover blocks that could be preventing you from improving your health. My hope in working with patients is to partner with them and help each person realize his or her physical, emotional, mental and spiritual potential.
I truly believe that health is not just freedom from disease; it is the state in which body, mind and spirit are able to achieve its full potential. I look at symptoms as an indication of a greater health imbalance and that by finding and addressing the root cause of symptoms, health will be restored.
As a primary care doctor, I treat adults with acute and chronic disease, as well as focusing on disease prevention. My methods address factors that contribute to physical, emotional and chemical imbalances. I put a lot of emphasis on teaching my patients how to incorporate healthy lifestyle habits to improve their health.
As part of your experience I may perform annual health exams (including gynecological exams), routine blood work as well as other functional testing, in order to gather more information about you. While I can prescribe pharmaceutical medications, I believe it is best to intervene in the most non-toxic and least invasive way that I can. In my option, a patient’s health goals are best achieved by creating individualized programs using nutrition, homeopathy, Biotherapeutic Drainage, herbal medicine, and lifestyle modification.
