I started my Health career as a Certified Personal Trainer, working with people of all ages to assist them in their wellness journeys. Though there were many different personalities, mindsets and goals, when all of the layers were peeled back it was revealed that each person really wanted the same thing…to feel better. My initial coursework and training was more than adequate to teach the difference between a lunge and a squat, a protein and a carbohydrate, and to tell the difference between a bicep and tricep; what I really needed was to push further in my educational pursuits to be able to offer people a way to truly feel better from a holistic standpoint. I knew I wanted to help in a different way, a way that coincided with my belief that a person could build great health naturally, without side effects, if they simply were given the right tools. This is what led me to Natural Medicine.
At Thriveology, I use the tools of functional nutrition, functional exercise and rehabilitative stretching, targeted dietary supplementation, homeopathy, herbal remedies and other modalities to teach others how to regain and maintain their best health. My focus is on prevention of chronic ailments, as most of these health scourges have been shown by research to be brought on by poor lifestyle health habits. I’ve picked a big fight with obesity, which is a particularly insidious disorder that must be solved if amazing health and vitality are to be regained. I’m driven to help all who will allow me to teach them, as this was the original role of a doctor (the root word of doctor is docere, which in Latin means “to teach.”)
