About

Bio

My practice is metabolically directed, meaning that I strive to uncover the metabolic problems that help create disease in the first place. By uncovering and treating the cause of your problem, rather than focusing on merely treating symptoms, I am able to help many with hard to treat problems. I have authored the book "Edibolic Stress - How the Lies You Are Being Fed Are Making You Sick" www.edibolic.com My office website is www.MDWellnessMD.com
