MY DESIRE IS TO HELP PEOPLE
It was this desire that took me to Nepal for the Peace Corps, directed me to the path of medicine and sent me to the island of Hispanola on many medical missions. My favorite part of being an emergency physician was quickly relieving people of acute pain. As an alternative medicine and functional medicine doctor at Vitality Medical Center in Nashville, I enjoy getting to know my patients and helping them heal at a deep level.
My journey into integrative medicine and alternative medicine treatments began when I started practicing macrobiotics in order to heal myself of kidney and adrenal fatigue. I was chronically tired, rundown and wasn’t sleeping well. Once I started eating a primarily plant-based diet and started to live within the laws of nature, my body became strong and my mind became clearer. I began to value and truly understand how food and proper lifestyle can heal the body.
The center is open to people of all ages and illnesses with a focus on autoimmune conditions and digestive disorders such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), Crohn’s Disease, Ulcerative Colitis and Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO).
