About

Bio

I am a Family Physician in Decatur, Illinois and I have provided caring, comprehensive patient care in central Illinois since 1991. This included practicing obstetrics for 15 years! My Wellness Practice is UNIQUE in that I practice METABOLIC OR FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE. What does this mean ? Metabolic medicine includes nutritional, homeopathic, herbal, environmental, orthomolecular, anti-aging, holistic, functional, and preventive medicine all rolled into one. Metabolism is the process your body uses to make energy from the food you eat. This energy runs multiple chemical and hormonal reactions in the body allowing normal function. A metabolic disorder occurs when abnormal chemical reactions in your body disrupt this process and lead to imbalance leading to disease or illness. One area of imbalance in your body is not unlike one unbalanced wheel on your car - you can feel it in the entire vehicle. A good example is diabetes - it is a metabolic disorder of the pancreas but it starts with other metabolic problems that begin to involve and negatively affect multiple areas and organs of your body. My job is to identify the areas of breakdown of the normal metabolic processes that are causing your specific symptoms through thorough specialized testing. Once we have determined the cause of your symptoms I can then help you start your unique restoration program to return your body to full function through various treatment modalities. These include lifestyle change such as nutrition enhancements, supplying missing nutrients or hormones, detoxification, supporting or readjusting the immune system, or encouraging the release of personal stress, and then working to prevent future recurrence of the problem. All of your body's systems and biochemical functions are about BALANCE. Your body will heal and return to balance or homeostasis given the right ingredients and support! Let me help you understand your problems and help you restore balance to your body for normal health and function

A 31-year-old male asked:

Who labeled you with anhedonia? Does the label make sense when you can enjoy some things and not others? Traditional medicine likes labels so they can bill insurance. Go to A4M.com to find a functional medicine doc in your area who can measure neurotransmitters and other biochemistry to find your root cause and help you fix your inability to enjoy some things. Lose the label and start living life!

Find the Root Cause: You need to find a functional medicine physician to help you evaluate the underlying cause of your health issues and help you fix it so you can live your best life. You need a functional stool evaluation like GI Map or Genova CDSA to figure this out and treat properly. Go to A4M.com and use directory tab to locate someone to help you.
