We are all unique, so our medicine should be too. I firmly believe that every one of us has the potential to become more resilient no matter how big the challenges or what stage of your health journey you are at.
I believe in the innate healing potential in each of us especially when we can remove obstacles to healing and connect all the dots-even when a ‘cure’ may not be possible.
I use a root cause approach to medicine. I don’t just look at each symptom in isolation or use a ‘drugs only’ approach where more medications are added for each new symptom. That approach doesn’t create the most potential for healing. A ‘one-sized fits all’ approach is also bound to fail especially if you suffer from a complex chronic condition or symptoms.
My approach to seeing you as a patient is not just about assessing a specific symptom, diagnosis or disease, it’s about looking at you as a whole and unique person and choosing treatment modalities which are expertly integrated. Not for the sake of making things complicated but to make your treatment plan work better and support your long term healing.
I am active in mentoring physician colleagues and teaching and I try to live by example too. This includes following nutritional medicine approaches and having a mindbody practice as well as doing my own ‘inner work.’
At the end of the day, we all want to be happy, feel fulfilled and connected to the people and things we care about most. I will work with you to help remove the health barriers to achieving this best self version of you.
Holistic treatment is the core of what I do, but I won’t recommend a ‘natural’ treatment or approach just because it’s natural–it has to actually work and have value. Otherwise holistic treatment can become just as unempowering and frustrating as ‘drug only’ approaches. It’s all about doing what works-for you.
