I would like to share with you a bit about myself and my passion for personalized health care.
I graduated from the University of Miami with a Bachelor of Science degree and completed my classroom and clinical training at the Palmer Institute of Chiropractic. I entered private practice in Las Vegas in 1981 and continued my educational training with post graduate studies including kinesiology, acupuncture, energy medicine, clinical nutrition, and cognitive enhancement.
In 1997 I attended my first functional medicine conference that introduced me to Integrative Medicine, the combination of Eastern philosophy and Western science. After completing Advanced Clinical Training Modules in biotransformation (detoxification), cardio metabolic, hormone balance, gastroenterology and functional immunology, I successfully passed board examination and received my fellowship as a Certified Institute of Functional Medicine Practitioner (IFMCP).
At Total Body Wellness Life Enhancement Center you will discover 4-P Healthcare; Personal, Preventative, Proactive and Predictive. Functional medicine is better understood as Personalized Lifestyle Healthcare.
Your initial consult is a one on one detailed case history lasting approximately sixty to ninety minutes. From that discussion appropriate Functional lab testing will be recommended to discover the underlying cause of the body’s dysfunction. I do not focus my attention on masking symptoms or simply slowing the progression of a disease, with drugs. My intent with each person that enters my clinic is to truly understand the individual that has the disorder(s) and work a plan to resolve and reverse the disease through changes in lifestyle and pharmaceutical grade supplementation.
Once all lab testing results are received, my staff will immediately call and schedule a sixty minute consult to discuss results, answer all questions, and discuss a plan for health restoration. Depending on the complexity of an individuals health status, typical follow through care may range from four to twelve months and include follow-up lab testing.
I look forward to meeting with you and help guide you on your path to optimal health, happiness, and well being.
