ready to take back your health?
My mission is for you to reclaim medical autonomy, bodily agency, and informed consent when it comes to what you put into and onto your body. The bedrock of my philosophy is rooted in cultivating radical responsibility when it comes to our own health while empowering people with evidence-based adjunctive therapies and natural alternatives to standard of care based in the fundamental principles of health--community, purpose, diet, movement, sleep, and nature.
MY PERSONAL STORY
For the first quarter century of my life, I was the perpetual patient—endlessly scoped, scanned, poked, prodded, and saddled with an ever-expanding inventory of diagnoses. Despite being subjected to invasive medical procedures, exhausting all the pharmaceutical remedies conventional medicine offered, and being referred through a revolving door of reputed specialists at the most prestigious institutions, my condition continued to deteriorate.
My intuition told me there had to be a better way. Once I immersed myself in research, became my own health advocate, self- experimented, and adopted healing strategies in the realms of integrative medicine and nutritional therapy, I began to experience tangible improvements and eventually tapered from my pharmaceutical drugs, replacing the deleterious pill-for-every-ill, symptom suppressive approach that predominates in biomedicine with the bio-individualized, therapeutic partnership and root-cause resolution paradigm embraced by functional medicine.
Confronting my chronic, inflammatory diseases through nutritional interventions and by identifying the functional medicine antecedents, triggers, and mediators in particular produced such a metamorphosis in my own life that I became motivated to educate on a larger scale in order to help others re-claim agency in their health care and recapture vitality.
Instead of surrending their healing power to a paternalistic and patriarchal medical establishment, I aspire to empower others to seize agency in their health care, and to witness the transformative potential of whole foods nutrition as well as correcting the divorce from nature that is the root of debility, dysfunction, and dis-ease.
My mission is to promote scientific literacy and educate othersevidence-based, empirically rooted holistic and intuitive healing modalities and to motivate adoption of food-as-medicine and ancestral strategies for wellness.
I am a proponent of the healing power of nature, and that our bodies are fundamentally powerful vessels of repair, renewal, and regeneration when we correct the evolutionary mismatch that plagues modern society. My philosophy is that healing is a oftentimes merely matter of provisioning the ingredients for wellness and removing the obstacles and impediments to health.
