APPROACH TO CARE
Your symptoms are not the problem -- they are just signals that there is a problem.
Your health is determined by a complicated web of interactions that are unique to you and impact your total body function. Broadly, these include social, physiological, mental, emotional, environmental and lifestyle factors.
When working with me, we dig into the mosaic of details that influence your health, to uncover the true underlying causes to your symptoms. My goal is to reduce or eliminate the various factors that create stress, inflammation and dysfunction in your body (and brain).
Together we work to bring your body back into a state of balance and optimal function, so that you are performing at your best and feeling great.
This is individualized medicine. You are unique, and your treatment should be too.
The Underlying Causes of Disease and Poor Health
My goal is to uncover and treat the real underlying issues, so that we get you feeling great and performing at your best.
Inside The Practice
The gap between emerging research in health and integration into conventional medical practice is enormous — often 20-30 years — particularly in the area of complex, chronic illness. My practice is centered on lifestyle medicine and leading health research, where modern Western medical practice meets evidence-based "alternative” medicine therapies.
Individualized medicine means that your health solution is tailored to your needs. Your unique profile is pieced together by investigating all aspects of your health, including common health-compromising factors such as poor diet, food sensitivities, nutrient deficiencies, environmental toxins, stress, negative side effects of certain medications, mercury fillings, light pollution, electromagnetic radiation, birth by C-section, inadequate sleep, physical inactivity, chronic infections, water quality, air quality, and toxic mental/emotional environments.
