After 30+ years of experience and research in the natural health field and learning how to cure his own adrenal exhaustion and copper toxicity, he offers adult and child patients individualized care plans tailored around their biochemistry using revolutionary new tests like HTMA rather than typical blood tests which don’t provide the important cellular information needed to get healthy.
Patients can expect increased energy and hormone levels, less brain fog and chronic infections, natural weight management, and full body healing using the most efficient, time-tested, and effective therapies and methods.
