I see myself as a
partner in my patient´s health
A large part of what I do is
how to get well and

program is for you,
patient, to take responsibility

are what I call the “walking wounded”,
not sick enough to be in hospital,
but in enough discomfort that
they know something is wrong.
As we all look different on the outside,
we are also biochemically unique on the inside.
There is no such thing as one right diet
for everyone or for that matter
the right supplements or exercise routine.
We are all as unique as our fingerprints.
Food is “data” that the body uses
to direct the complex actions that keep us
vibrantly alive, so loading up on junk food
is like taking the fast lane to a giant system failure.
My philosophy is simple, bring the body back to rhythm.
We are rhythmic beings, but our modern lives have thrown
these rhythms off. We have outpaced our biology.
When our rhythms are in sync, life flows easily,
we have more energy and everyday tasks are easier to perform.
Athletes call this “being in the zone” or “having their game on”.
Finding your “groove” is not just psychological, it is physiological too.
