Special Interests

Appreciating each persons biochemical individuality has led me down the path of naturopathy and then functional medicine. I’ve always loved the study of anatomy which I implement in various injection therapies for pain and joint injury. I’ve also always strived to solve complex problems and this has led me down the path of using individualized medicine in the treatment of chronic infections, auto-immune disorders and chronic fatigue/fibromyalgia to name a few.

My pain management practice involves several tools for helping athletes of all levels return to sport as quickly as possible and in chronic pain cases I’ve been very successful in helping patients regain their lives back.

I have extensive training in intravenous therapies including Ozone treatments, chelation, and customized IV nutrient therapies.
