"Becoming a master healer who focuses on all aspects of health and disease and who makes a permanent positive impact on individuals' lives is my ultimate goal."

He has personally used or experienced the majority of the treatments he recommends and understands the challenges associated with living a healthy lifestyle in this day and age.
