All beings are worthy and deserving of complete health. My role as a physician, is that of a guide and teacher--Guiding and assisting all to realizing their infinite, all powerful self. All individuals receive comprehensive, customized programs utilizing a variety of modalities to clear, remove resistance, heal. No matter the treatment modality, guidance to Self, to self-healing, is the underlying Intention.
Something different from the usual visit with a physician. Clients can expect a visit that is high vibration, and they therefore experience a sense of ease as they receive a tremendous amount of information. Now, many first visits are workshops and retreats; people describe them as fun and highly purposeful! Individuals also appreciate the customized treatment plans, noting benefits quickly.
Recognized in childhood actually. Then, I studied chemistry and nutrition to understand how to use plant and food science to prevent and treat conditions. With traditional medical school and also study of Eastern medicine, the intention remained the same-- to assist patients with a holistic and nutritional approach. I provide alternative forms of healing such as herbs, supplements, mindfulness and nutrition plans, instead of medication when possible. I see no shame however in use of medication.
