Two-thirds of all healthcare is devoted to chronic illnesses, like obesity, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, osteoarthritis, and asthma. These conditions develop and worsen over a long period of time, typically more than six months. The other one-third of healthcare is devoted to traumatic injuries and acute conditions, like a broken bone, twisted ankle, stroke, […]

I recently treated a liquor store owner who said he’s having trouble maintaining inventory. He said people aren’t just coming in and picking up a few things. They’re clearing off his shelves. The better the weather, the more they’re buying. He’s been in business for 40 years and has never seen anything like it. He […]

Earlier this month, I published a blog about the connection between chronic illness and COVID-19.

I’ve had people ask me why I’m not posting videos on social media about how to exercise while staying at home. They ask why I’m not trying to sell more nutritional supplements. The reality is that COVID-19 hasn’t changed my vision for Natural Healthcare Center. For more than 30 years, I’ve been working to reverse […]

It’s a scientific fact that disease starts at the cellular level. Cancer and tumors are the result of abnormal cell division. Inflammation inside an artery that creates plaque is caused by unhealthy cells. How you feel and function is determined by the health of the 20-30 trillion cells in the human body. This is why […]

I often tell the story about my time as a pre-med student when I began seeing the connections between what I learned in nutrition, exercise science, biology, and chemistry classes. This led me to study and become passionate about functional medicine. Since I began my career in clinical practice and as a public speaker more […]

Pyramid of Health

There’s a reason why the Pyramid of Health is displayed so prominently at Natural Healthcare Center. I wrote the Pyramid of Health and created this model from top to bottom as an illustration of how I think in clinical practice, and how our entire team approaches healthcare. We all share the same Goal – to […]

Health factors

Why is it that our health takes a backseat to just about everything else in our lives? When you feel physically ill, you still go to work. Taking a day off due to illness is almost unheard of now that most people have the ability to work from home. And you can forget about unplugging […]

Arthritis word cloud

In a previous post, I discussed the causes of arthritis, which is not only the leading cause of disability in America, but also has a serious emotional impact on how people feel about their health. The exact cause of autoimmune arthritis, such as rheumatoid arthritis and psoriatic arthritis, is unknown, although research suggests smoking, obesity, […]
