Prevent and Treat Disease with Diet and Lifestyle

Learn how you can dramatically impact health by simply changing what you eat and how you live

Focus on Plants, Focus on Health, Focus on Living

The rates of chronic illnesses such as diabetes, heart disease, autoimmune disease and cancer have risen significantly over the last several decades. I believe this is so much related to what we are putting into our bodies and what we are doing with our bodies. Through my own painstaking illness, I have learned how to use my diet as my weapon in treatment of my own illness and prevention of future disease. I have learned how to make myself strong and fit and now use this information to teach and empower others to change.

I was diagnosed with RA back in April of 2014. It seemed pretty easy at first. I was taking Prednisone for my swollen hand and staying away from dairy, red meat, sugar and salt like my doctor had suggested. Then I was put on a biologic and still seemed okay with watching my diet. Not being use to eating a healthier diet I did not how to season my food so I started getting depressed and losing weight because I didn’t want to eat the same thing over and over and my knees starting getting really bad. My knees were…


I just wanted to say thank you which somehow just does not seem like enough. We both have told so many people about you and your professionalism and how you care so deeply for your patients. We both want to wish you the best of luck over this next year and I’m sure you and your family will benefit from this year but the people you touch will benefit so much more.

Today, denotes one year, from implementing your plant based diet and yesterday was one year from my “New Patient Appointment”, with you and all I can say is “Thank You”, which doesn’t seem to be quite enough! I feel great and owe it all to you, for your compassion, wisdom, time researching and knowledge of a better way! Your seminars have been very enlightening.
