For many years now, I have been a firm believer in natural healing. Like many of the patients I see, I once suffered from many diverse health challenges and as a last resort, sought professional help from natural practitioners who could guide me in implementing diet, nutrition, herbal and other natural therapies. After detailed and extensive examinations, it was determined that my health had deteriorated so much that I was only given a few years to live. However, by the graciousness of God and radical changes to my diet and lifestyle along with natural therapies, I gratefully found the answers to the various problems that had been afflicting me. Now, almost 40 years later, I am very grateful to be alive and enjoy much more vitality and vigour than I did in my 20's!
Thanking the Great Physician for leading me to know and benefit from what I consider to be the true way of healing, I have considered it a great privilege and honor to be able to share this precious knowledge with my patients. It has truly been gratifying to see many people undergo a remarkable and unbelievable transformation from poor health to vibrant wellbeing.
As a Doctor of Natural Medicine, I believe that providing the keys to vibrant health begins with the holistic approach. To obtain total health, we must regard the total person. This means not only the physical but the mental, emotional and spiritual aspects of our makeup as well. In this way, the underlying causes of poor health can be determined and a program designed to restore buoyant and vibrant health. By teaching my patients correct nutrition and living habits as well as recommending those steps necessary to cleanse the body and rebuild strength and vitality, it soon becomes apparent to the patient that he or she must learn to be responsible for his/her own health. Thus, disease prevention and preventative medicine can truly become a reality.
The areas that I specialize in are the therapeutic use of Herbs, Diet and Clinical Nutrition, Homeopathic Medicine and Bio-identical Hormone Replacement Therapy(BHRT) to aid the body in returning to optimal vibrant health and function. As a Doctor of Natural Medicine, my work has led me to assisting patients with a wide variety of health concerns including hormonal imbalances, weight-loss, fatigue and low energy, anxiety, depression, and anti-aging. Often as we correct these areas most other concerns just ‘disappear’.
When I began my practise some years ago (unlike today where this field is in a period of exciting growth), it became necessary for me to be pro-active in educating the public by providing lectures, seminars, keynote addresses and workshops. Over the years I have given countless speeches and presentations all over Ontario and Canada in order to break down the walls of ignorance and misunderstanding in my profession as well as provide valuable health information on a wide variety of topics in natural healing .
These have been very well-received and as a result of this, I have had the added privilege of writing articles for magazines, newsletters, as well as interviews on radio and TV. Most recently I have appeared on Daytime Durham on Rogers Cable and the Lessons for Living program broadcast over the CTV network. My current seminar series on all the elements required to live a healthy, vibrant and successful life is entitled 'Be Transformed! ...Transform Your Health, Transform Your Life!' and is available in PDF format on this website with plans to expand this into a book form as well.
In the early days as my practise was starting, I actually formulated and made my own herbal preparations for my patients! These were made up in the form of tinctures, extracts, and I even had a little manual encapsulation device for putting my formulas in capsules. This is largely unheard of today with younger practitioners as there are now so many excellent professional suppliers. In my case, as I got busier in my practise, I simply could not make up my own medicines any longer. However with the help of a friend who had a small manufacturing facility I developed some herbal and nutritional products for my practise which still have a valid place in my dispensary. But my dream was to provide unique, effective and transformational professional quality natural products that I would design to benefit millions of people worldwide! This may indeed become a reality in the near future. Stay tuned for a new exciting line of these products coming soon!
