The medical industry took a serious wrong turn a century ago when it was taken over by the pharmaceutical industry and again 75 years ago when it became wedded to the insurance industry. There is a better way. These are challenging times. But there is real science to help us solve complex health problems without the use of drugs and surgery. I am here to help you find that way for yourself and those you care for.
MIND, MOOD AND MEMORY
New developments in understanding neurotransmitters and genetics can help us find non-toxic answers to many brain related problems.
ABDOMINAL PAIN, INDIGESTION
Solving digestive problems can be a big relief but can also head off many serious health problems. You can recover, in most cases quite quickly. And by correcting gut issues many other symptoms often resolve.
- SIBO,Constipation and Diarrhea
- Stomach acid – high or low?
- Food intolerance, allergies
- Bloating, gas, indigestion
AUTOIMMUNINE DISEASES ARE AN EPIDEMIC
- Autoimmunity can affect virtually any organ or system including the brain.
- Thyroid – 90%+ of all thyroid diseases in America are autoimmune, taking hormones is often not enough.
- Gluten intolerance. Celiac disease and many under diagnosed digestive issues
- Joint pain and swelling – arthritis is an autoimmune condition
- Chronic spinal disc herniations – at least 15% are autoimmune.
23andMe, MTHFR, GENETICS
Do you have your 23andMe genetic report and can’t make sense of it and don’t know where to go. I have extensive experience interpreting genetic data and applying it to your specific health issues. Genetic data is now available at a reasonable price, but making sense of it is not always simple. The good news is that in most cases we can modify the effects of genetic variants.
- Feeling down or out of control? It could be genetic.
- I have studied with Ben Lynch of Seeking Health methylation courses and conferences.
- OCD, Depression, Anxiety – there are often non drug solutions.
- Allergies and asthma are often a sign of methylation defects.
- Infertility, miscarriage and birth defects can be due to genetic methylation issues.

ALLERGIES, HAY FEVER, FOOD INTOLERANCE
Allergies and hay fever can make you miserable. We can help you discover the cause and find ways to address the underlying cause. Allergies are often the last straw in a system that has reached the tipping point with immune system imbalance from stress, toxins, digestive dysfunction, etc.

- We look at total immune system stress and help you lower it
- Effective, non-drug antihistamines
MOLD AND MYCOTOXINS
“Mold is the new Lyme disease.” If you’ve been exposed to living or working in a moldy environment you probably know what I mean. Mold and mycotoxins can cause many symptoms and few doctors know how to recognize or treat them adequately.
- Sinusit and allergy sumptoms
- Autoimmune disease
- Chronic digestive ddiisorders
- Skin problems
- Joint pain
- Brain fog, vertigo, tinnitus and hearing loss
WHAT IS FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE?
“FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE is the future of conventional medicine–available now. It seeks to identify and address the root causes of disease, and views the body as one integrated system, not a collection of independent organs divided up by medical specialties. It treats the whole system, not just the symptoms.” —Mark Hyman, MD
