My Passionate and Playful Path
My Autoimmune journey began as a Martial Arts and Qi Gong teacher who rapidly went from a 165 pound athlete to a 114 pound critical patient in the Intensive Care Unit. I was told that I would be weak, sick and tired for the rest of my life. I wanted a second opinion and have committed most of the last three decades to learning, teaching, and practicing Integrative Medicine.
As a clinician, I get to sit with people and have meaningful, sometimes life-changing conversations – almost every day! A combination of lab-testing, modern protocols, appropriate diets, and the vast wisdom and experience of Traditional Chinese medicine allows me to be creative and individually focused.
Over the last 25 years, I have developed and refined a Four Phase Protocol to prevent and reverse most Autoimmune conditions. Each Phase stands on specific proportions of Six Pillars of Health.
Depending on where a person finds themselves on the Autoimmune Spectrum – a scale of severity and prognosis of any person’s condition and their history of Early Warning Signs, anyone can individualize the Phases and Pillars to get the best results.
This well established and individualized process empowers both patients and clinicians to know exactly what to do, for how long, and what usually happens next.
I am excited and proud to share my experience and protocols with the world.
