  • Find the cause

  • Treat the whole person

  • Preventive Medicine

  • Wellness

  • Doctor as Teacher


Steps towards prevention and longevity
A) Mind/Body /Spirit (Whole person)
Spirit: Optimism, healthy relationships, self knowledge, growth, development, remaining flexible and open. Celebration of life, individuality, diversity. Independent yet connected. Self-love and acceptance.
Mind: Calm, focused, aware. Space to think clearly. Understanding emotional influences / connections. Awareness of hidden/subconscious causes of ongoing stress such as childhood wounds, emotional suppression, fears, and anxieties. Being in charge. Stress reduction is critical to good health. Increase stress = faster aging.
Body: Feeding your physical needs: exercise, nutrition, fluid balance, assimilation and detoxification, touch, rest, stimulation, the five senses kept alive and invigorated.
B) To supplement or not to supplement?

  • condition dependent

  • lifestyle and diet dependent

  • lab assessment: Scientifically based labs test for toxicities, vitamin/mineral levels, heavy metals, allergies, viral/bacterial/yeast/parasite infections, and hormone levels. These tests help to pinpoint the problem and focus the treatment.

Wellness Tip
Simple Back Stretch
Are you looking for a simple and relaxing low back stretch? If so, try this tip: Lie flat on the floor, on your back, with your legs extended. Pull your right knee up to your chest while pressing your lower back against the ground. Hold the position for about 30 seconds to a minute. Repeat with your left knee. Low back stretches can help relieve tension, improve flexibility and reduce stress. If you have preexisting back disease or injuries, check with your physician or therapist first.
