Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How did you shift your "sickness-based practice" into a "wellness

A: By educating each and every patient about their human physiology and the effect
their daily habits have on their overall health & wellness. We strive to help our
patients "stop subsidizing their illnesses and begin investing in their wellness." We
help patients reduce their use of prescription medications through supplements,
nutritional and lifestyle modifications.

Q: What happens if I need to be hospitalized and you cannot admit me to the

A: I have a supervising physician who will oversee your care if you are hospitalized
and then release you back to see me after you are discharged. You may also
choose to have the "hospitalist" admit you since he/she only sees patients that are
admitted into the hospital.

Q: Why do I have to have a baseline thermogram in two parts, one now and
one in 3 months?

A: In order to establish stability in the breasts, a thermogram must be done as
baseline and repeated in a 3 month period of time to be sure that there is no active
process going on in the breasts.

Q: At what age should someone start screening the body or breasts with

A: It is recommended that men and women ages 25 and older establish a baseline
thermogram followed by annual thermography to assess for changes.

Q: What are the advantages of getting a thermogram?

A: Thermography does not emit radiation of any kind. The camera does not even
touch the body but rather picks up the heat pattern coming off the body. There is
no squashing of breast or body tissue, no enclosed spaces to lie down in, can map
pain throughout the body and can pick up inflammatory breast cancer unlike any
other technology. Thermography is used as an adjunct technology together with
mammogram, MRI, etc. for earlier detection of disease.

Q: How does Juice Plus+ differ from multivitamins?

A: Multivitamins are man-made synthetic, isolated vitamins in non-physiologic doses.
Juice Plus+ is actual food in a capsule or chewable. It is whole food nutrition that
has been juiced, dried and packaged in capsule or chewable form. It contains 15
raw, fruits & vegetables and two gluten free grains. The sugar is removed in the
convenient capsule form.

Q: Why do I need to take Juice Plus+ each and everyday?

A: Our bodies require at least 7-13 servings of a variety of fresh, raw fruits &
vegetables in order to prevent disease in our bodies. Most people struggle to get
all that they need daily. Juice Plus+ bridges the gap between what we are eating
and what we are supposed to be eating. We still need to eat raw vegetables in our
daily diets. Juice Plus+ is the consistent nutritional foundation that acts as our
bodies’ health insurance policy.

Q: How can I get Juice Plus+ FREE for my children?

A: Juice Plus+ has a program called the Children's Health Study. Children between
the ages of 4-18, 19-25 undergraduate college students can receive Juice Plus+
for FREE for 3 years and 4 months with a sponsoring adult who orders at least the
Juice Plus+ Orchard/Garden Blends.

Q: Why do I need to consume Probiotics daily on purpose in order to improve
my immune system?

A: Probiotics are beneficial bacteria that we must consume daily in order to grow a
balanced ecosystem in our small intestine. We live in a world that is full of
antibiotics (soap, foods, meats, dairy) that kill off our good bacteria that we need
to fight off disease. 80% of our immune cells line the digestive tract.

Q: Why is sea salt so important for me to use daily?

A: Hawaiian or Celtic Sea Salt contains over 80 vital minerals that the body needs to
optimize metabolism. Our bodies need to consume at least ½ teaspoon of high
mineral count sea salt each and everyday.

Q: What is an Ionizing Foot Bath and what are the benefits?

A: The ion footbath is a revolutionary hydrotherapy device that combines the life-giving properties of water and ions, with specialized bioelectric charge, which enhances and amplifies the body’s ability to heal itself. Commonly called a detox footbath the bio-change produced resonates throughout the water at a frequency specific to each individual taking a treatment. The process is a non-invasive, non-chemical detoxification. A session creates a similar environment as a walk along the beach, a waterfall, a rainstorm, a natural hot spring, a fast moving stream or other naturally charged water sources known to be beneficial to the body.

Only the negative ions are more powerful because your feet (or full body) are in direct contact with the ions made in the water. Neutralized particles are pulled out of the body through the skin via osmosis. Color changes, odors, oils, and particles are some of the indicators that toxins are being removed from the body.

The cumulative effect of the sessions are the most dramatic, providing long-term benefits such as a balanced body, pH, improved oxygen level and relieving the strain on the vital organs to rid waste to detoxify the body. It is typical to feel relaxed and have heightened mental clarity.

Some of The Health Benefits Are:

  • Neutralizes the body acid overload and balances the body pH.
  • Relieves the strain on the organs to rid waste & detoxify.
  • Improve cellular oxygen levels.
  • Liver and kidney detoxification.
  • Chelation of heavy metals.
  • Internal cleansing with full body purge.
  • Reduces stress and depression.
  • Greater mental clarity and memory.
  • Reduces inflammation and pain.
  • Reduces PMS, tension, and menstrual pain.
  • Increases stamina, improves sexual health.
  • Improves sleep pattern.
  • Reduce headaches, migraines and symptoms of allergies.
  • Parasite cleansing and digestive purification.
  • Improves hair and skin problems such as wrinkles, acne and rashes.

  • Stimulate and enhance the immune system.
  • Purifies blood and lymph system.
  • Increase circulation, improve blood pressure and lower cholesterol.
  • Enhances weight loss, increases metabolism and energy.
  • Reduces cellulite and obesity, shrinks stomach to normal size.
  • End cravings in caffeine, drugs, sugar and nicotine.

Q: What is an Infrared Sauna and how would it benefit me?

Infrared heaters warm the body in the same manner as natural sunlight. FIR heat therapy uses the wavelength of the visible and non-visible light spectrum of sunlight that heats the body normally.

Traditional steam saunas raise the temperature of the air to a very high level within the chamber to warm the body. Some people have difficulty breathing in this extremely warm air. FIR saunas work differently. Instead of heating the air within the enclosure, FIR saunas heat the body directly. The result is a lower power bill and deeper tissue penetration. In the FIR sauna, the body perspires and receives all of the healthy benefits but avoids the harmful and extremely hot air of a traditional steam sauna. FIR saunas are safe for all ages.

FIR has the ability to penetrate, refract, radiate and reflect. The human body can absorb FIR because of its deep penetrating ability. When FIR penetrates through skin to the subcutaneous tissues, it transforms from light energy into heat energy. The thermal effect within the deep layers of the tissues causes bloods vessels and capillaries to dilate, promoting a better blood circulation, and the heat so produced helps to get rid of body toxins and metabolic wastes through sweating.

Some of the Health Benefits Are:

  • Better Circulation and Increased Energy
  • Weight Loss
  • Cardiovascular Health
  • Speed Recovery from Injuries
  • Detoxification
  • Stress Reduction & Relaxation
  • Improved Immune System
