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 intolerance, a depressed immune system and Crohns 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.
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 have helped my own.
