PHILOSOPHY

Here’s what I believe:

  • When you change your mindset and change your physiology, you change your life.
  • Healthcare should be about promoting positive vitality, beyond just the absence of disease. Would you rather feel just okay, or fantastic?
  • The human body has more innate wisdom and self-healing capacity than conventional medicine gives it credit for.
  • Your genetic blueprint together with the interaction of your environment makes you unique, and therefore no cookie-cutter approach to your health will ever be as effective as a personalized solution.
  • When you mask or repress symptoms, you force them underground, potentially causing even greater health issues down the road. Better to dissolve them by identifying and addressing the root causes.
  • There will always be conflicting advice about what’s good for you and what’s not. You can ignore the studies when you discover what’s truly good for YOU.
  • The most effective and satisfying doctor-patient relationship is a collaborative partnership. As a doctor, I am not “better” or smarter than you, and I will never place myself on a pedestal above you.
  • Your intuition is trustworthy. I respect your inner wisdom and will never coerce you into doing something that doesn’t feel right to you.
  • Change is hard, but it’s not as hard as watching your health slowly deteriorate. You can make new habits stick with motivation, guidance and support.
