My Philosophy

My practice is based on a customized approach which is founded on the idea that everyone is different and needs individual diet and lifestyle advice. Your body, at different times, needs different things. For example, in times of stress body systems can go out of balance and need extra support. If you have been eating badly, you may benefit from additional nutrients. If you’ve had a recent illness, chances are you could use a boost. Your day-to-day living habits will affect your needs for food and nutrients. And while your body is constantly trying to adapt, it could often use some help and support. My practice is based on a "Wholistic" approach, as the same symptom can often be caused by different things. A skin condition, for example, may be due to inadequate nutrition, an allergic response, poor digestion, an overworked liver or a combination of these. While working on alleviating symptoms that bother you, we will gain an understanding regarding the underlying causes of different imbalances in your body, and support the body´s vital energy to heal itself and reach optimum health for body, mind and spirit.

We Are Partners

We are partners. We will be working together as partners in a mutual journey. I respect and honor your preferences, and together we will, tailor a plan that will fit your individual needs. I view my role as that of an educator, teaching people about the way herbs, nutrition and life style modifications can benefit their health. It would be my honor to have you as my client.

There are two ways to partner with Me:

  • In person - My primary clinical practice is in Walnut Creek, California
  • Long Distance - I am happy to provide long distance phone consultations. During these consultations, we will devise a holistic treatment plan for you: lifestyle modifications, dietary suggestions and recommendations for targeted nutritional supplements

If you are interested in either format, please do not hesitate to call me at 1-925-286-5549 or e-mail me at

What to Expect?

Your first appointment is typically a comprehensive 1 1/2 hour consultation. We will first explore background issues that often play an important role in one’s health:

  • Family history - which addresses a person's genetic predisposition to disease
  • Personal history - exploring a person's health history
  • Lifestyle - diet, exercise, habits and hobbies
After the background information is obtained, we will address the mind, the body and the spirit.
  • The Mind: Is it balanced and peaceful, or stressed and overworked? Long-term stress can tax the mind tremendously and lead to a host of physical and emotional problems.
  • The Body: Suboptimal functioning of any of the main body systems eventually leads to physical illness. I gather information regarding : Inflammation; Digestion; Detoxification and Blood sugar metabolism. Here it is important to clarify that I am NOT A MEDICAL DOCTOR. I do not claim to diagnose, treat or cure any medical condition. I will NOT substitute herbal or nutritional therapy for your existing pharmaceutical therapies. My contribution to your health is complementary to your work with your primary health care provider.
  • The Spirit: Science has shown us that when a person feels spiritually "connected" and has a spiritual practice of almost any kind he is better equipped to handle stressful events in his life. Spiritual practices can include prayer, meditation, yoga or any other relaxation techniques

The beauty of a holistic approach is that in addition to healing a particular ailment, it often has the remarkable influence of addressing imbalances before they manifest as physical disease as well as improving a person's emotional and spiritual life.
