According to the World Health Organization, "health is more than the absence of disease. Health is a state of optimal well-being." I believe that optimal well-being is a concept of health that goes beyond the curing of illness, and I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself and my specialty to the community.

I have my Doctorate in Holistic Nutrition, Masters in Food Science, and a varied background in Chemistry. My diverse studies enable me to create a different perspective catered for each individual. I analyze biological/chemical problems and mechanisms and incorporate my knowledge of the best natural foods and ingredients into each individual's diet, to fit their needs. I perform a wellness consultation that takes into account diet, nutritional supplementation, exercise, mind & body imbalances, and alternative healing.

When approaching adults, it is important to remember every person is an individual, and everybody's needs and sensitivities are unique, particularly in terms of diet and lifestyle. In order to understand each person' s specific health condition, weaknesses and requirements, I spend two to three hours evaluating each patient's specific health data, providing them with a personalized report that will feature report of findings, corrective recommendations and validation of those recommendations. In addition to diet, herbs, nutritional supplements, exercise and stress reduction methods, I discuss the concepts of detoxification and many other healing modalities as they apply to every person's needs.

In children, the holistic approach can make an incredible impact in their lives. The typical child's many exposures to overly refined foods, excessive sugar, artificial flavorings, colorings, preservatives, herbicides, second-hand smoke, environmental poisons, premature vaccinations and pharmaceutical drugs are creating a toxic effect on our children, contributing to a myriad of escalating health afflictions.

My Services include:

  • Comprehensive Diet/Nutritional Analysis                    
  • Blood Chemistry Analysis    
  • Individualized Weight Loss Programs
  • Detoxification Diet Plan
  • Care for kids with special ailments: ADD/ADHD, Eczema, Allergies, and Autism
  • Individualized diet plans conditions such as Acne, Diabetes, Hypertension, Celiac Disease, Headaches, Fatigue, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Anemia, Atherosclerosis, Arthritis, Osteoporosis, Constipation, Gout, etc.
