How It All Began

How I came from awakening, to transformation, to healing.

My Awakening Begins

My story is a simple one. I awakened at the age of 16 while going into a 7-Eleven to buy a snack. As I guzzled down the coke and munched on a bag of Fritos, I realized that what I was eating had zero nutritional value. From that day forward I decided to eat healthier food. I stopped eating at fast food restaurants and I stopped drinking Cokes. Yes, I was the first of my group of friends ever to buy from a health food store! Being outspoken about my new lifestyle and diet, I soon acquired the nickname Mr. Natural. I recognized at that early age that there was nothing healthy about the process food we were all eating. These events took place in the mid 70’s way before the introduction of GMO foods.

Another life defining moment that literally transformed my life occurred a year later while attending college in Pre-med. I was involved with a girlfriend whose father was the Chief of Medicine at a local hospital. After Sunday brunch he would often invite me to accompany him on his rounds. On one particular Sunday after leaving a ward of some really sick people, I naively asked,” How can we keep these people from getting sick in the first place?” To which he responded under his breath while rubbing his thumb and fingers together gesturing money; oh, no, we don’t want that!


His candid response floored me and immediately shattered my ideal of becoming a M.D.  It took me years to recognize that sickness and disease “IS” the business model . Many awakenings later, I developed a model of care that is pro-health in spite of the disease care model practiced globally. I practice “Functional Medicine” with an emphasis on thyroid,  immune and nervous system restoration and drug free pain relief. My protocols involve lifestyle education, nutritional supplementation, dietary changes and chiropractic adjustments.

From that day forward I decided that I would dedicate my life to teaching people how to cultivate a relationship with their health and well being. I have helped thousands of people attain the education needed for maintaining their health…

                                                                                       My Kids asked me the other day

“Dad why you never complaint about going to work? “

I just responded  “Because I love what I do”

In Life that’s very important!

I love to help people  transform their lives  one day at a time!

Wake up and  Love your Health.

It  begins with awakening, transformation, then healing.


      My  Health protocols will bring excitement back in to your life as you actively transform your health

to experience more joy, energy and libido while diminishing weight, brain fog, fatigue and pain.




It simply begins with waking up to the dogmas that proclaim your labs are normal and that your food and water is safe to consume.

It involves a threefold process of Awakening to the underlying cause of your condition which I will help you identify

a Transformation toward a healthy diet and lifestyle and the Healing that allows you to express optimum health.

All three steps are continuous and invoke the principle of making Common Sense Common Practice!



Any health practitioner can give you medicine, supplements or recipes

but until you make the decision

that you are going to be the driver and not the passenger with your health,

nothing will work for long.
