I believe everybody deserves to live a life free of disease. Helping people find and eliminate the cause of their condition so that they can achieve optimal health and live their best life is the most gratifying aspect of what I do as a physician. I took an oath to do no harm and there is no better way to avoid harm and achieve health by focusing on a healthy diet and lifestyle.
I am a Nigerian-born American who grew up in Southern California. I have a passion to see people recover from disease, which is largely a result of our modern diet and lifestyle. As a physician, I got tired of prescribing medications to treat or suppress symptoms as I watched their condition worsen often times to the point of death. I knew there had to be a better way. It became increasingly clear to me that the principle of cause and effect was completely lacking in my medical school education and residency training and I set out to learn as much as I could about the causes of disease. Not surprisingly, poor food choices, lack of physical activity, stress were often the cause and by helping people to optimize their diet/lifestyle I could actually cure "incurable" diseases. I represent a growing number of physicians who understand the importance of nutrition-driven medicine and the huge impact it can make in the lives of their patients.
Perfect referral is an OB/GYN treating patients with PCOS or dealing with PCOS related infertility to help these patients' loose weight and improve insulin resistance. Perfect referral is a Bariatric Surgeon (weight loss surgeon) who requires a patient loose weight before qualifying for surgery. And lastly anyone who is tired of taking prescription drugs to manage their chronic condition typically someone with type 2 diabetes, thyroid disease, autoimmune disease, eczema, high blood pressure etc.
