I've had the privilege of practicing Naturopathy and Functional Medicine for 35 years in Colorado and have served tens of thousands of people in practice, through classes that I teach, both publicly and professionally, and through radio, TV, and closed-circuit trainings. I trained at the International Center for Natural Health Medicine and since 1982 I've been adding to my training in Functional Medicine on a yearly basis through programs sponsored by the Institute for Functional Medicine and other Functional Medicine-based programs. I am a past teacher for the American Board of Integrative Holistic Medicine (ABIHM), and was consistently rated as one of their top 5 speakers. I owned, hosted, and produced a live health radio talk show for 7 years on Colorado's #1 talk station, KHOW. I have co-authored 3 books along with Dr. Robert Ivker, past president of the American Holistic Medical Association and co-founder of the ABIHM: Arthritis Survival, Asthma Survival, and Headache Survival. I have contributed to his best-selling book, Sinus Survival, and the Self-Care Guide to Holistic Medicine. I have written the nutritional protocols for his forthcoming book, Cannabis for Chronic Pain.
For 3 years I was a on the Customer Council Advisory Board of Metagenics, America's #1 professional supplement company.
For 2 years I served on the medical Advisory board for Univera LifeSciences.
I was the Wellness Director for the Pearl Foundation for 2 years.
I am also a Rayid practitoner: reading deep personality traits from the iris of the eye and birth order.
