Tell us a little about your care philosophy:

I believe the majority of health issues we have today are due to three major causes: malnutrition, toxicity, and stress or trauma (physical and emotional).  I also believe the body is almost always able to heal if given what it needs, which usually involves addressing the three factors listed here.  If a person is to be healthy, it is because they have employed the laws that produce healthy function, which includes addressing these three major factors.  If disease occurs, it is almost always because one or more of these factors have been compromised.  The title “Doctor” means teacher.  So I feel that a major part of my service to my patients is to not just treat, but to teach them how to become, and stay, healthy.

Tell us about your specialties:

Most of my practice (about 85%) is in the areas of Functional and Nutritional Medicine.  About 15% of my practice is in the area of pain management. 

Tell us about specific conditions you treat:

Autoimmune disease, hormonal problems in both women and men, GI problems, fatigue, anxiety and depression if due to a biochemical cause, Adrenal related problems, pain related problems including migraine headaches, sleep issues, etc.

Tell us about the procedures you employ:

I use Functional Medicine protocols and procedures, including nutritional supplementation, herbal medicine, homeopathic medicine, dietary modification, life style changes, and chiropractic (I prefer using the Activator, Arthrostim and Vibracussor).  As an APC doctor I also use various injection therapies, including Neural Therapy, Prolotherapy, Biopuncture and Mesotherapy.

Tell us about your hobbies/family/interests:

I love to cook. I enjoy music, gardening and reading.  We have 7 children and 16 grandchildren.
