About

Bio

Nutritional approaches to health restoration in cancer patients and treating advanced cancer patients by integrating metabolic and conventional methods including chemo sensitivity testing and potentiating cytotoxic chemo therapeutic agents with insulin are my favorite areas of medicine. Diagnosing difficult metabolic and neurological disorders through thorough history taking and in depth physical diagnostic skills combined with functional assessments is another of my joys in medicine. Finally I like to work with Autism Spectrum Disorder children and helping folks reverse neurologic and gastrointestinal issues. Patients are teaching me things everyday by their stories and through their prior treatment failures. Yes I do care for quite a few "Mayo rejects".

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.

A 25-year-old male asked:

Private practice : When in private practice you make decisions on hours, vacation, hospital affiliation and more. It requires a good manager though and can be a financial stress initially yet is more rewarding than having someone in management tell you how long to spend per patient and how many patients to schedule.
A 17-year-old female asked:

High stress hormones: Having more stress hormones like cortisol can prevent people from losing fat around belly button. In this case reducing stress and practicing relaxation breathing or guided imagery for 5-10 minutes twice a day can change fat loss pattern. One set of symptoms characteristic of too much stress is having trouble going to sleep at night and trouble waking up in the morning.
A 40-year-old female asked:

Test iron level: Low iron can be behind the abnormalities and if it is low the cause could be from low iron in diet from poor iron absorption or blood loss losing iron.
