I am an osteopathic family medicine physician who looks for and addresses cause rather than merely treating symptoms. The Standard American Diet (SAD) subsisting of 60% processed foods, 30% animal products an a mere 5% on whole grains and 5% on plants will create chronic disease.
I ask and support my patients to increase the good in their life. To increase the essential foods that help the body to heal: Plants! I emphasize a nutrient dense low fat whole foods plant-based diet. This is the foundation towards healing. Without this we will always be playing damage control and simply creating and ‘managing’ chronic disease. I didn’t go into medicine to just manage disease. Our goal is to prevent and reverse.
As a traditional osteopathic physician, I also use my hands when indicated to address the neuromusculoskeletal system. This system makes up 70% of our body and if not moving appropriately can have a profound negative impact on our well being.
