About Me – For optimal listing appearance, please limit this info to one or two paragraphs.:
My passion for plants began during my year of postgraduate service work at the Native American Health Center in Oakland, California. While there I saw an innumerable number of patients with chronic diseases and learned of and became inspired by the transformative power of food and lifestyle as medicine and the remarkable ability of the body to heal through the work of Dr. Dean Ornish, Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, and Dr. Michael Greger. I believe in addressing the root causes of disease in medical practice and want to help shift the paradigm of our current disease-management system to one of health and preventive care.
