Patient Health Benefits :
I believe that my job as a naturopathic physician and educator is to stimulate and support the innate healing processes within each individual by applying a sciengifically based strategy that utilizes the most natural and least harmful approaches possible. It is my goal to restore vital living in each person to whom I have the privilege of providing naturopathic care.
Inspiration or Passion behind my practice :
I am continually inspired by the courage of my patients. People diagnosed with cancer stare at their mortality with a focused lens and those who are transformed by this experience and recommit themselves into living a life of love and integrity inspire me greatly. My father, diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, was one of these people and showed me how to live with his "eyes wide open".
