In Their Words
I found naturopathic medicine after many years of struggling with chronic pain and the consequences of Celiac disease. Naturopathic treatment, including a ketogenic diet, IV therapy, prolotherapy, and ozone therapy has helped me to achieve relief from my symptoms. My own experiences with naturopathy, combined with a lifelong fascination with the human body and mind, inspired me to become a healer.
Naturopathic school equipped me with an array of treatment modalities but my personal recovery taught me that the art of medicine is in the orchestration. I practice using a model of health that reflects the unique structural, biochemical, and mental/emotional aspects of each person. A good doctor knows all of these realms; a great doctor moves seamlessly between them depending on the needs of the patient at that time. I seek to find the root cause of what ails you, while valuing the vis medicatrix naturae – the body’s innate ability to heal.
I am dedicated to the lifestyle I promote. When I’m not in the office, I can be found running along the seawall, practicing yoga, meditating, creating nutritious recipes, and enjoying the company of loved ones. I live my life the same way I practice medicine –with a passion for all things natural. I look forward to supporting you on your path to healing.
