Addiction Alternatives

Do you or someone you love suffer from addiction? Did you know that ‘rehab’ is not what it used to be? That word has a lot of negative connotations. Now there are cutting edge resources for people with alcohol and drug problems that you most likely do not know about such as ibogaine and naltrexone. Ibogaine is a natural and relatively withdrawal free, so-called ‘cure’ for opiate addiction. It has a wonderful success rate for many. While there are no hard statistics, it has been anecdotally proven to permanently end addiction in a large portion of the people that utilizethis option. Naltrexone, while not 100% natural is still a better solution, along with a multi-targeted approach, to help those in an alcoholic crisis. You and your loved one need concrete solutions and successful results can follow. I believe that once and for all, medicine has answers to these health concerns. I have personally searched the depths of Earth to find ways to heal opiate addiction and alcohol addiction. I am able to provide support for other addictions, but these two are my specialty.

Naltrexone, on the other hand, is for those who can’t seem to escape the deep throws on alcoholism on their own. While not 100% natural is still a better solution, along with a multi-targeted approach, to help those in an alcoholic crisis. This is very new, and many doctors are not educated on it. There are a few national specialists in the USA I can connect you with for appointments, or I can provide you with the information for how to talk to your medical provider.

These methods are often terms as ‘addiction interruption’ and are certainly radical (and usually effective) approaches for opiate and alcohol dependency. You and your loved one need concrete solutions and successful results can follow. I believe that once and for all, medicine has answers to these health concerns. I have personally searched the depths of Earth to find ways to heal opiate addiction and alcohol addiction. I am able to provide support for other addictions, but these two are my specialty.

Anxiety, Depression, & Borderline Personality Disorder

I have helped reduce and eliminate anxiety and depression in many clients. It’s not just my fresh take on conventional ‘talk therapy’. I definitely empower you to create permanent shifts in your perspective rather than habitually and negatively continue to rehash the past as with other providers. This is key. While recognition of the past is important on some level, a balance is more often needed with a new focus on the present and the future.

I get to the root cause of your issues rather than handing out a pharmaceutical band-aid – which can sometimes be helpful, but not always. I provide tools you need on your journey to healing that help you learn to rely on yourself as much or more than you rely on your medical provider – who are often just dispensing medication.

I have remarkable solutions for borderline personality disorder – an often misunderstood illness. There are solutions even if you feel hopeless. We also will explore food/brain allergies and orthomolecular medicine as it relates to mental illness. Together we create ground-breaking approaches to help you begin living the life of you were meant to live, if you are not already due to health concerns.

Autoimmune Prediction & Prevention

Did you know that you can check your potential predisposition for some autoimmune diseases through genetic testing, but that you can check actual autoimmune activity using antibody testing as a prediction marker? This is important because an autoimmune disease can be in the process of developing up to 10 years in advance of a diagnosis. Put yourself ahead of the game, and make prevention your policy when it comes to autoimmunity. Find out what your markers are with genetic and antibody testing.

Autoimmune Remission

In the case you already have one or more autoimmune conditions, we will work together to eradicate as many symptoms as possible. There are many things people with autoimmunity can do to take back their life and health. I am also able to work with your medical provider to show you which tests you can request to monitor antibody activity quarterly or bi-yearly to see what the science of your body says. Many people who begin an autoimmune lifestyle approach see real differences in antibody levels. While the genetic expression of autoimmunity can’t be ‘shut-off’ according to the hard science, symptoms can disappear. And antibody test results can become so low that disease is virtually non-existent or no longer meets the criteria for diagnosis.

Cancer Choices

You deserve to know all of your options!

  • learn how to minimize the effects of conventional treatment
  • learn what natural, alternative methods are available to you
  • how important are 2nd opinions from functional medicine doctors
  • what other people in your situation are doing
  • the role emotions, spirituality, diet, and fitness play in healing
Heart Disease & High Blood Pressure

While these are two separate conditions, they often go hand-in-hand. The new science says that statins, while helpful under extreme conditions, are not as safe as we thought – see reference below. The same applies to blood pressure medication. There are safe, effective, and natural ways of treating both high blood pressure and heart disease without the side effects of prescription medication, not the least of which is diet. Reducing blood pressure medicine must be done slowly and in cooperation with a medical doctor. These things would require your thoughtful participation – and can increase the longevity and quality of life.

Determining Naturopathic Alternatives to Surgery & Safe Second Opinions

I complement the care you receive from your primary care physician or any medical specialist. I help you understand which questions to take to your conventional, allopathic providers in order to help determine if you need, or simply want, to get a second opinion on an immediate surgery, critical treatment, or a new diagnosis.

Conscious Parenting

Most of our parents did the best they could at parenting, just as we do now. Some manage quite well. But for most, learning how to raise happy, healthy children is something that every parent or guardian needs, whatever stage of parenting they are. The sooner, of course, the better. But it is never too late to repair some of the damage caused by faulty parenting.

In fact, unless we are super human, most of us have been there. The truth is, when we know better, we do better. That’s the theory anyway. Sadly, there are many teenagers suffering emotionally due to bad relationships well-intentioned but misguided parents. Many people struggling with their child-parent relationship have found the answers they needed to repair relationships with their children – and this is everything.

Knowledge of child rearing can play one of the largest roles on how society functions as a whole. In a perfect world, conscious parenting would be taught in every school, from a young age, at graduated levels because these are skills everyone needs, whether or not one decides to have children or adopt, chances are good they will have to interact with little people at some point.

This is an intuitive, fluid process that does require practice but the results are life changing – reestablishing healthy relationships with your children is probably one of the most important things you will ever do. Most people – no matter what their profession, education, or income – need help in this department. There should be no shame – quite the contrary. People who aim to reconnect with their kids after years and years of damage are to be commended. With a few simple tools, I help you make it happen!

Nutrition & Chronic Disease

According to reports from the World Health Organization, diet factors influence the occurrence of more than 2/3 of chronic diseases.

I can quickly assess your personal dietary needs based on the information you provide and teach you which foods are specifically inflammatory to your body. There is also new, advanced food sensitivity blood testing from the creator of ALCAT called the MRT. I can also discuss different diets or lifestyle changes you can make regarding food to have you sleeping well and looking and feeling your best!

Eating Disorders & Food Addiction in Teens & Adults: Anorexia, Bulimia, Binge Eating, & Orthorexia

Anorexia has the highest mortality rate of any other mental illness.

I provide solutions that can help soothe and heal spiritually, physically, and emotionally. I also work through non-traditional talk-therapy to create permanent paradigm shifts in perspective. I can help you or your loved one embrace their purpose and power to heal.

Evidence-Based Approach to Restoring Thyroid Health: Including When Tests Are Normal, But Body Temp Remains Low

There are many times when thyroid test results are normal yet the body temperature remains low and symptoms persist. I use Wilson’s Temperature Syndrome based on 300 clinical studies supporting T3 hormone therapy.

Food-Brain Allergies Causing Behavior & Mood Disorders in Children, Teens, & Adults

Do you or someone you love suffer from anxiety, depression, behavioral or mood disorders? These can often be helped by identifying food/brain allergies in sensitive individuals.

Food Sensitivity Blood Testing Via MRT & Doing Elimination Diets Accurately

The founder of the ALCAT has created a relatively newer test called the MRT. It tests for delayed antibodies relating to food and chemical sensitivity and intolerance.

Did you know that some people are sensitive to salicylates, aspirin, ibuprofen, etc? Some are sensitive to specific foods, even, ones that are not normally implicated in the top 5 major food allergen/sensitivities/intolerances which include gluten, soy, corn, eggs, and dairy. A lot of people are unknowingly sensitive even to the new diet trend, coconut oil!

Let me help you determine which foods to avoid and which to consume based on your personal science. I can help you order testing for and interpret your MRT test results. Additionally, elimination diets are rarely done correctly, which can lead to frustration. Allow me to support you on the journey.

Gut Health: Prebiotics, Probiotics, & Your Microbiome

Most people have heard about the importance of gut health since it is a popular health trend. But did you know most over the counter probiotics do not do what they claim to? Longterm, the probiotics fail to take hold and properly colonize in the gut. Here is an amazing article about our microbiomes.

I can help you really stabilize the gut, get to the bottom of how recent antibiotic use has affected your gut health, and teach you the role sugar and processed food plays.

Health Advocacy with Your Doctor

Are  you feeling like you need someone with you on your behalf to better understand your doctor appointments? Do you need someone to help you figure out the right questions to ask your healthcare provider? Are you confused on what modern science says about your particular condition? Do you need to get a second opinion on an ’emergency’ surgery? Do you know the full consequences of a surgery? Has your provided ensured that you are fully educated and prepared for the process, complications, and healing time? Allow me to share my opinion on your particular case and help you feel confident with your decisions.

Heart Disease & High Blood Pressure

While these are two separate conditions, they often go hand-in-hand. The new science says that statins, while helpful under extreme conditions, are not as safe as we thought – see reference below.

These things would require your thoughtful participation – and can increase the longevity and quality of life.

Insulin Resistance & Metabolic Disorder

Did you know that diabetes type 2 is virtually epidemic, even in those who appear otherwise healthy? Understand what is going on see what you can do to reverse it!

Ketogenic Diet & Intermittent Fasting Specialist for Cancer & Weight Loss Resistance

A ketogenic diet was originally used to treat epileptics at the turn of the century. But new evidence is out and it is, in some cases, effectively being used to treat patients with brain tumors. It is also being used by those who do not respond to conventional treatment for anxiety and depression, as well as metabolic disease and treat weight loss resistance. But it’s easier said (or read) than done. It takes years of research (and practice) to understand the intricacies of successful ketogenic dieting and ideal macros. The pitfalls are numerous but done properly, especially combined with intermittent fasting, is changing lives for the better. Let me guide you on the path of a ketogenic diet and see the wonderful changes it has in store for you!

Lyme Disease & Coinfections: Bartonella, Ehrlichia, Anaplasma, & Mycoplasma

Lyme Disease, and it’s sister co-infections are epidemic. The good news is that there are clinical herbalists making great strides in healing Lyme and coinfections using evidence-based natural medicine.

Neurogenesis, Human Growth Hormone, Telomerase & The Stay Young Forever Movement

Telomerase is an enzyme found in the telomeres of chromosomes. As people age, their telomeres grow shorter. Lengthening telomeres, like neurogenesis (growing new brain cells called neurons), was once thought nearly impossible. Recent breakthroughs in science shown growing both are possible. Learn what you can do to maximize turning back the clock!

 

Parasitology & Related Behavior, Mood, & Skin Issues

While parasitic infections are often incorrectly and over-diagnosed by improperly trained natural health practitioners, parasite infection can and does sometimes happen. I have extensive knowledge in parasitology and learned from one of the most renown parasitologists in the world, Dr. Heinze Melhorn, holder of 25 anti-parasitic patents, and the author of Human Parasites. You can read more about him below. I also studied the work of Dr. David G. Young, a naturopathic physician who wrote Parasites & Worms in Humans.

Genetic Test Interpretation from 23&Me, MyHeritage.com, & Ancestry.com

One of the most interesting things I can do is interpret your genetic test results, specifically your SNPs (pronounced snips), or single-nucleotide-polymorphisms. These are simply the most commonly known human genetic variations. I help you understand what your DNA says about the likelihood of certain diseases based on current scientific findings.
