About

Bio

I am a board certified, residency trained Emergency Physician with 18 years of post residency experience. Additionally, I have expertise in the areas of diet, exercise, and nutrition, as I developed my own nutrition and exercise system based on a plant based diet, and lost about 150 pounds.

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.

Some elevation: of liver enzymes can occur with severe vomiting, such as the vomiting which occurs with a severe stomach bug. While follow up is essential, this may be the cause of the elevated liver enzymes. Be sure to comply with all of your doctor's instructions. Hope this helps!

Avoiding depression: is a matter of optimizing your environmental conditions. You are doing well with the vitamin D and sun exposure. Eating a varied diet of primarily colorful, whole plant based foods will help. If they are healthy enough to do so, people with SAD may consider daily mild to moderate exercise after consultation with their doctor. Avoiding alcohol is also a good idea. Hope this helps!
A 41-year-old member asked:

Antibiotics: such as doxycycline can often cause stomach upset. Some ways to combat such symptoms are to eat a small snack 15-20 minutes prior to taking the antibiotic, avoid taking the antibiotic right before going to bed or right after awakening, and avoid taking the antibiotic at the same time as other medications (separate by at least 30 minutes). Hope this helps!
