I hope you all enjoy my new website! After practicing for 11 years, my vision of health is about making my patients healthy, motivated and empowered to take a step towards their journey to wellness. To take an active role in your health. Don’t accept that you have to live with your symptoms because all your tests have come out normal or that you have to take medication for the rest of your life. Improving ones health involves optimizing the system that is deficient. It is not about your diagnosis, it’s about the system that is not working well. For example, regardless whether you have constipation, IBS, ulcerative colitis, heartburn or bloating… treatment involves improving your digestive health! A diagnosis or disease is not about treating the symptoms, it is about treating the person with the disease. Who are you as a person? Do you take things personally? Do you make assumptions? Do you lack expressing your emotions or frustrations? Have you compensated yourself to deal with other people and relationships? Emotional suppression can lead to physical disease! Getting to the root cause of disease involves optimizing the system that is deficient PLUS bridging your mental-emotional state.
