I have been speaking to my patients about co-dependency and their health for the last 3-4 years and I always have patients ask where they can read more about it. I would often direct them to books on co-dependency but they often come up short of helping people understand this topic outside the world of addiction. Below is my first effort to begin putting this concept into a written
This season’s flu seems to be hitting quite a few people, and keeping them down for a number of days. Below I will outline a protocol that will help address and improve your immune system’s ability to move through these acute reactions without the use of suppressive medications.

The state of their emotional health becomes reactive and in turn, they have to manage states of increased stress.
After a recent new patient intake I continue to be amazed at the amount of mismanagement that is going on in our current healthcare environment. There seems to be this complete disregard to the concept of “cause and effect.” The resources and advice that comes from the majority of doctors and health care providers is centered exclusively around treating symptoms, withou
A patient just told me the other day that “it sucks to get old.” This is an interesting belief system around something that is an inevitable part of our lives. The aging process seems to be something that most people fear. I believe this fear is centered around two primary themes, the first being pain and discomfort. Too often as individuals age, their bodies break down
