Imagine sitting down and having a meaningful conversation about your health, lifestyle, relationships and past traumas. Imagine having that conversation with someone specifically trained to help you make some important decisions about your health and how you experience stress.
Integrative Medicine is in such demand because we look at the whole person.
We dig into your medical history and test for your greatest metabolic challenges.
We focus on the most up-to-date research and therapeutic protocols.
Integrative medicine is a long term relationship – the focus in on improving your health more than your diagnosis.
Changing your health usually means changing your lifestyle. A little – or a lot!
Changing your lifestyle is challenging, so it is best to have a guide with a lot of experience supporting people through the hard parts.
As a clinician, I have over 25 years of experience researching and resolving some of the most complex and chronic conditions in medicine. That doesn’t give me magical powers, it just means I have seen a lot of fads come and go, and I have researched EVERY new discovery or protocol for Autoimmune patients and for PTSD patients.
Go Nerd Powers!
As a patient who has lived with Autoimmune Disease, I have a great deal of personal experience about living with and healing from these serious and life-changing medical conditions. I have a flare-up occasionally, ALWAYS after a stressful time in my life.
If humans are allergic to anything, it is stress!
This website is a reflection of what I have learned and now recommend to all of my patients. If you are a patient who has tried Diet A or Diet B and did not see much change, consider this. Your body heals itself well and completely, or as best as it can, given your lifestyle, your physiological adaptability, and your environment.
If you can create an optimal healing environment and lifestyle, you will heal optimally – as best your age, genes and adaptability possibly can. Your body also heals itself the best given certain kinds of stimulation. If you do puzzles often, your brain will last longer. If you have a chronic inflammatory condition with measurable tissue damage (almost everything chronic – and tissue covers everything), it only makes sense to start with a VERY focused period of time on an Antiinflammatory protocol.
After that, you have to stimulate and nourish your body very specifically, depending on the tissue you need to repair.
After all of that, you may want to spend a few months figuring out exactly what is making your immune system so aggressive.
Then you are well on your way to a life with a lot less medication and a lot less to worry about.
My Clinical focus is to guide, motivate, educate, and support my patients through each Phase, each Pillar, and each Stage of the Autoimmune Spectrum.
I once learned that the term ‘Doctor’, actually means a teacher of common sense. That is what I do!
