Q. Why does your work stand out from others who do what you do?
A. I work very hard to generate happy compliance. It is relatively easy to come up with a program for a patient, and far harder to come up with a program that an individual patient will be able to do for months or years without feeling it is burdensome. I am most successful when patients have not needed me for a given issue for years and only come in with some new concern.
Q. What do you like most about your job?
A. I love figuring out what will help people and expanding that help to every area of their lives. Too often we are concerned with a particular illness, when something like blood sugar levels is a reflection of overall stress. Yes, you can alter medications and introduce natural substances to replace them. But dealing with the whole picture is much quicker and more rewarding.
Q. What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A. Does insurance cover me? Anthem has specifically denied my profession coverage. They have decided that nutrition and lifestyle are experimental treatments.
How often do I have to come? I usually see people for a single issue two or three times. We often see improvement after the first visit and tweak the program from there.
What do you treat? I treat people, not diseases. I research each area and I have found that two people with the same disease may have very different causes and symptoms. Everyone has a different resolution.
