About

Bio

My graduation from Internal Medicine residency was in 1996. I practised what I call "mindless medicine" where we treat every disease and symptoms with medication. In 2012 I was introduced to functional Medicine and this led to a transformation in my knowledge that I realized that symptoms are merely the body's way of signalling all is not well. We should not try and suppress these symptoms rather look for the root cause. This required detailed testing and addressing root cause of disease and resolving them. Medications help in acute disease however chronic problems need a more intellectual approach and the goal should always be health and vitality. We team with our clients and help them resolve the illness though a systematic approach of changing how they think, drink and live. Check us out at Holistic ICON.com
