My journey began in 1997, when my father, who was also a physician, was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, a particularly aggressive form of this disease. When he was diagnosed, the treatment for pancreatic cancer had been the same for close to 20 years and the very poor survival rate had not changed. Watching him struggle with and succumb to that horrible disease, I couldn't stop thinking that there had to be something else that could be done to help people in his position. I began reading and researching everything I could on alternative cancer treatments and over time, I came to the conclusion that alternative treatment combined with traditional medical therapy is the best way to approach cancer. I believe the key is to integrate the best of both approaches in order to get the best possible outcome. This same integrated approach works not only for cancer, but also for heart disease, diabetes, obesity, osteoporosis and managing menopause.
My personal and professional experiences over the years have proven to me the importance of being proactive and taking charge of your health and well-being. In our practice, we have helped many patients lose weight, increase their energy, significantly diminish or eliminate menopausal symptoms, decrease their risk of cancer, and lower their blood pressure, blood sugar and cholesterol levels through an integrative approach that focuses on nutrition, exercise, stress management and, when appropriate, the prudent use of bio-identical hormone replacement therapy.
