“Is there not something more I could be doing for myself?
Is there nothing more I can do but take a prescription drug for the rest of my life?
Is it really just a matter of time until I will need surgery? “
Do you sense that there is something more you could be doing? Are you tired of being treated like a diagnosis—recieving costly diagnostic procedures and medicines? Do you feel like your doctor doesn’t really know you?
You’re not getting advice on what you can do for yourself; how diet, exercise and stress are contributing to your illness. Medicine is incomplete without education.
I offer you precisely what other doctors do not; personalized education, inspiration and support. I teach you how to dramatically improve your Health through eating, exercise, thinking and relating.
I offer you precisely what other doctors do not— Education.
I specialize in education as medicine.
I work with the same Health conditions as all primary care doctors; from children’s ear infections, teenage acne, healthy pregnancies, obesity to cancer.
My clients come to me with MS, cancer, heart disease, digestive problems, and especially illnesses that defy conventional diagnosis and treatment. As a doctor, I am trained to understand the metabolic, biochemical causes and treatments of disease. As a teacher, I understand how illness is caused and treated by diet, exercise and stress. I do not merely inform you that you need to improve your diet or get more exercise; I teach, inspire and support you to do this. Teaching is what I do.
Experience energy, vitality, weight loss, strength, sleep—overall become healthier and happier. Your increased vitality will heal the small symptoms that you take medicine for. It’s a life-changing experience.
Get turned on to your own power; know that you have control over illness, rather than relying on doctors and prescriptions. See clearly the rewards of living mindfully. Create your own health, accomplish goals rather than just being given a medicine. Feel deeply understood and cared about by your doctor. Be strongly supported by my guidance and teaching.
Build a close relationship with a doctor who treats you, not your disease. I will be a mentor and a teacher, who lives the way that you will learn to live. I teach you how to heal yourself by teaching you to live as I live. I translate your medical problems into meaningful, understandable projects to work on. Your strengths and weakness are brought compassionatley out into the light.
I am definitely not for everybody. You must be able to take advantage of what I offer. I can teach you, but you will be the one to make changes in your life.
My greatest love and skill is teaching you self-mastery—how to master your own behavior. The only way to do this is through Kindess.
The work that I do complements any other doctor’s work. If you want to do more for yourself, if you want to do what ONLY YOU can do for yourself, you have come to the right place.
“The doctor of the future will give no medication, but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, diet and in the cause and prevention of disease.”
― Thomas A. Edison
My greatest love and skill is teaching you self-mastery—how to master your own behavior. The changes that you make can heal your disease. Self-mastery sounds like you might have to grit your teeth, but you don’t. Self-mastery is about kindness, understanding and compassion.
This is the way I live. I have learned how to do this through my own experience. As a physcian I understand the biochemical causes of disease, and as a teacher I will guide you to transform your behaviours and your health. Over my adult life I have studied, practiced and evolved my own unique ways of eating, exercise, self-reflection and relating. I have faced the challenges and reaped the benefits. I understand them intimately. I do not impose my ways. I encourage my students to explore various approaches to movement, self-reflection, and eating. I provide my clients valuable instruction in how to practice as I practice. The essential work is wrestling with your own limits.
I welcome the oppurtunity to teach you to heal yourself. I look forward to sharing with you what means so much to me. Please book a consultation to get started.
Is this for you?
I work with people who want to actively participate in thier own health care—people who are eager to learn about and improve themselves. My clients can expect to be held responsible and produce quality results.
We might not be the right fit if:
- You are looking for a cure, a fix, a prescription, or a pill.
- You want to find out what is “wrong” with you; a diagnosis—to find some mysterious process in your body that explains why you are having these symptoms. I can refer you to some of the best diagnosticians in the business.
- You have very little self-discipline. You have no self-care practices.
- Self-improvement does not interest you. You don’t want to read, study, learn or practice.
