Functional Medicine Doctor, Osteopathic Physician
The personal journey into Functional Medicine for me started with self-experimentation with diet and lifestyle modification to benefit my own health. I discovered how a simple dietary change could impact significantly on the way I felt, but also on many key markers of my health. I learned to become more in-tune with my own body and to recognize the connection between foods, sleep and stress with the way that I felt from day to day.
It is my belief that we are a compilation of every aspect of our lives – physical, emotional, and spiritual. The diseases that we develop result from imbalances to our physiology that begin pre-birth and progress throughout our entire lives. By addressing these factors we are able to modify the outcomes. The patients I have helped thus far have experienced transformations to their health and overall well being. With this has come the added benefit of improved appearance, sense of self-worth, and personal growth.
