“My method of treatment reflects the depth of our understanding of the nature of disease. This is only possible through our attention to the ignored details.”

I am a Naturopathic Physician licensed in the state of California. Naturopathic Doctors attend an accredited four year graduate naturopathic medical school. This includes a standard curriculum in medical sciences and clinical medicine.

My private practice provides an opportunity to explore a comprehensive approach to good health care. I specialize in the treatment of psychological and neurological (i.e. brain) function. This takes an approach that is inclusive of diagnosing underlying contributors to common diseases, such as environmental toxins, chronic infections and inherited genetic conditions.

My patients consent to treatment understanding that naturopathic medicine is an alternative to orthodox medical practices, often focusing on the body’s inherent abilities to heal rather than just the elimination of symptoms.  I no longer provide primary or acute care. If your needs are urgent please contact emergency services.

My method of treatment reflects the depth of our understanding of the nature of disease. This is only possible through our attention to the ignored details.

A specific approach to treatment must apply methods which are individualized and act as catalysts to engage the body’s own inherent self regulating homeostatic mechanisms. It is the same thinking when we use a lever to move a heavy object rather than trying to push it. We are engaging the intelligence of the system. This approach is catalytic, that is it creates exponentially greater change with the least effort. It enhances the capacity for energy and reorganization.

All systems of medicine have contributed to developing the finest standards of care. None of these can be ignored at a loss to good health. Recent contributions to science will alter our entire understanding of medicine. The tracking of the genome will lead to our ability to diagnose disease more accurately, potentially years before it manifests, leading to preventive approaches tailored to the individual. Our discoveries in the interrelationship of our immune function, from the input of intestinal bacteria, cellular functions and mental attitude has changed our early concepts of a  mechanical understanding of the body to an orchestra of communications. I hope I can present you with the best options available without prejudice.

“You saved my life, Andrew. I felt the virus “break” after one dose of the medicine you suggested. So very very grateful. This, after 3 weeks of fighting it with Chinese meds only to watch the symptoms consistently morph into something else. So many herbs, so many attempts. Your medicine was a game-changer. I felt the virus break inside of me. I turned a corner and rapidly recovered. I was on my bike for 2 hours Saturday and felt 100%. And for the record, I had a history of asthma and my oxygen saturation had dropped to 85. Forever grateful.”
