A personal journey to Naturopathic medicine

“My father passed away from a massive heart attack when I was only 19 years old. That was after he had open heart surgery in the 70’s AND went to a famous (at that time) cardiologist’s compound in Santa Monica, California to “rectify his heart issues”.

Only a few years later, he still died from a Myocardial Infarction. That planted a seed somewhere inside me. I had seen enough to know there had to be a better way to realize actual health. That’s when I decided it was time to go down the path of holistic, and Naturopathic medicine - the original functional medicine.”
