Professional and personal philosophy:
*In our modern life, our bodies, mind, and spirit are under pressure from unrelenting stress, toxic chemicals, radiation, and information, distracted relationships, artificial foodstuffs from depleted soils, and infections and injuries. We are innately healthy, and have great capacities for self healing. As these pressures keep increasing, our bodies may need more support.
*These conditions come front and center in the care of our rapidly growing population affected by autism spectrum disorders, learning issues, attention problems and related issues. An explosion of research has not pinpointed the cause of this epidemic, but it has highlighted the role of specific genetic vulnerabilities to our increasing toxic burden and modern stressful and overwhelming lifestyle in its causation and severity. More and more research shows the potential benefit of systematically addressing these systems in order to improve the life arc of affected individuals and their families.
*By incorporating methods to support nutrition and digestion, development, detoxification, relationships, and correcting structural issues, pre-conceptually, pre-natally, and through early childhood, it appears that there may be a great reduction in the numbers and severity of children experiencing these disorders.
*I take time with each individual or family. I work more in a consulting and supportive capacity, and do not provide acute care. Therefore I ask that each person have their own primary care or medical specialist with whom I can collaborate.
