Past Experience As A Health Care Provider
San Francisco & Throughout the United States
Doctor of Chiropractic, Diplomat of the National Board of Homeopathic examiners, Medical Doctor of Homeopathy (India)
It all began when I was eight years old and I asked my father to buy me a series of small children's books on how the parts of the body work. At thirteen I became aware of macrobiotics cooking and realized that most people were Sanpaku, (in a state of ill health due to diet). I began yoga studies with my mother at this time as well.
Later, as a philosophy major in college, studying at the Sorbonne in Paris, and having been treated by a combination acupuncturist/aikido-master/masseur; a desire for personal health above all other studies, led inevitably to returning to the U.S.to complete undergraduate courses in pre-med.
I began a study of homeopathy in 1978 at the same time I began chiropractic college in Los Angeles. By the time I graduated in chiropractic, four years later, I was teaching homeopathy.
The four year course of study for chiropractic uses all the same texts as are used in medical school. The only difference being that extra courses in anatomy and physiology are taken in place of learning the use of allopathic pharmacy, which homeopaths are unlikely to want to use anyway.
I then worked in a multidisciplinary, holistic clinic in Miami, Florida for two years, treating all patients with nutrition, chiropractic and homeopathy. We had many patients from Europe. For the next ten years I operated my own five-doctor holistic facility in Jacksonville , Florida. I did 1400 television programs on holistic medicine and coordinated the efforts of homeopaths, acupuncturists, chiropractors, allopaths (medical doctors) and massage therapists. I became the president of the Chiropractic Academy of Homeopathy and an examiner for the National Board. In my own practice I performed hundreds of blood tests, thousands of x-rays and MRIs, and a multitude of physical examinations and neurological tests. I rarely recommend x-rays now, however, due to the damage they create.
Over the last thirty years I have studied with the most renowned homeopaths in the world, including Catherine Coulter, Eizayaga, Bill Gray, Roger Morrison and various homeopaths from India. I have an advanced standing with the NCH, a Medical Doctorate of Homeopathy from India and am a Diplomat and an examiner of the National Board of Homeopathic Examiners.
Currently in practice, I practice chiropractic, nutrition and homeopathy exclusively because it is the most expedient way for me to spend my time. It is also what I love to do the most. I have been practicing for thirty years (as of 2007). I hope these sciences will help you.
