As a parent, I want the life for my kids to be better than the life I had. The reason why I’ve dedicated my life to natural health is due to the health problems I had as a child. Struggling with asthma, allergies and headaches, I always thought there had to be a better way. I remember pressing the asthma inhaler to my lips, thinking “how long am I going to have to do this?”
I started my collegiate career with traditional Pre-Med in hopes of helping other kids and families with their own health problems. I imagined working in a small, medical family practice, but it wasn’t until I met the love of my life a few short weeks into the freshman year of college at St. Scholastica that a paradigm shift took place.
My wife has had much more serious health conditions than I ever did; she struggled with chronic fatigue, Epstein-Barr Virus, severe food allergies and intolerances, a depressed immune system and Crohn’s Disease. After years of medical tests, referrals to specialists, medications, and more, she landed in a Natural Health clinic with a feeling of hopelessness. However a few short months later, she started to turn things around. Within six months, she was back to her normal self and after a year she was a completely new person.
Having witnessed much of her victory over disabling diseases without medications, it became an obsession of mine to learn more. I shadowed the natural doctor who helped her, put in my application for chiropractic school upon his recommendations, and never looked back.
Being able to help people restore their health naturally is such a blessing, I can’t even begin to imagine doing anything different!
Much of my drive to be a better doctor is to be a better father. When I think of the health problems that held me back when I was young, the last thing I want is for my children to experience the same feelings. My passion is helping your family as much as my knowledge, training and experience has helped my own.
