Cracks in the system.
Over the last 15 years, it became increasingly obvious to me that there were many patients who were not finding the care they needed, nor the results they wanted from conventional care. At the time, I was in the middle of my formal graduate education and learning how my profession fit into the health care system. As I began practice in 2003, my focus was on musculoskeletal conditions. My post-graduate education helped me to effectively diagnose and communicate to my patients how their musculoskeletal problems were related directly to their lifestyle and dietary habits. Within a few years, I realized that the majority of health conditions, not just musculoskeletal, but most chronic problems...like thyroid problems, diabetes, migraines, autoimmune disorders, infertility, ADD/ADHD & Autism Spectrum Disorders, and many more were unequivocally related to their dietary and lifestyle choices.
The big problem was that we (this includes myself up to my post-graduate studies) have been misled to think that chronic poor health comes with age, bad luck, or bad genes. The biggest problem, I found, was that we were taught that we can simply medicate or supplement our way out of poor health, which couldn't be farther from the truth. Even in my practice, I was being blamed by patients for their inability to recover from their health problems. This did not sit well with me. Especially, when I realized that they were right! I did not serve them at my highest level because, like most doctors, I was taught to look at the body by breaking it down into different systems and no one taught me to put it back together again in a practical way. I began to educate myself on the interconnections of different systems in the body and how they function when they are HEALTHY. This allowed me to better evaluate patients who were sick, but not sick enough or in the right way to have symptomatic relief from only taking medication or having surgery. I realized that there were millions of people suffering because they had fallen through the cracks in the system that taught them to blame things beyond their control for their health problems.
In 2008, I opened my new office in Upland, CA and began to focus on helping people connect their symptoms with the underlying issues that developed because of how they had been managing their health. I have created several videos to help people, like you, find their power and recognize that their health is in their hands. We have developed several ways to help you take control of your health through care in our Upland office, as a distance patient, or with video guided care.

In Good Health,
