I have spent the last several years in the field of internal medicine, working as a physician in acute care settings like hospitals. Through this experience, I have seen firsthand the devastating effects of diseases, as well as how traditional medicine tends to treat them. There are incredible, cutting-edge interventions for acute illness and injury; however, in my opinion, we are not very well equipped as a field to manage chronic or long-duration diseases like cancer, autoimmune disorders, and heart problems, just to name a few.
For these chronic ailments, we tend to rely too heavily on prescriptions and medications, but these are often not enough. And sometimes they can do more harm than good if there are adverse reactions. I have also witnessed the effects of stress on health, and how detrimental the lack of proper nutrition and exercise is to wellness.
The healing process is a journey, and I am so excited to take this journey alongside my patients, and offer them my expertise, knowledge, inspiration, and support along the way.
