This is an important question because the answer you give can determine your success. Most people state they want to be healthy to avoid future consequences, such as a disease or premature death, but I find, from my experience as a physician, disease risk assessments are unlikely to motivate a person to be healthy. Calculating our risk for future sickness changes health from being a physical matter, one with inherent personal value, to being an intellectual matter, one aligned to abstract concepts. I find people are more likely to think their way out of health, than think their way into health.
My mission is to create a stronger society by virtue of healthier people.

I received my medical degree from the University of Miami, School of Medicine and completed residency in internal medicine at LDS Hospital in Salt Lake City, UT. I have practiced internal medicine for over 17 years and served in numerous medical leadership roles including the Board of Directors for the Utah Partnership for Healthy Weight (a non-profit public policy initiative) and the Davis County Health Board.
After accumulating 55 pounds of excess body fat, then undergoing a change of heart, I have vast experience in matters of health and real passion for fitness. My transformation to a much healthier person (and physician) during my mid forties provides credibility above and beyond my medical certifications. Therefore I am equipped to help just about anyone in the pursuit of their health dreams. I know how to empower people to improve their health, no matter their limitations or medical diagnoses.
Having practiced medicine for almost two decades, as well as becoming a fitness expert, I can provide clarity to one’s health picture, therefore you can expect an unbiased assessment and plan of action. I believe medical care and one’s health are entirely separate universes. One consultation with me will prove that.
Everyone should understand what they can do in a proactive, natural way to secure health and happiness. Medical testing, medical procedures and prescription medications often complicate matters without ever making us healthier. Don’t settle for a complicated regimen of chronic disease care, an inferior form of health, when you can have the real thing! Be bold and improve your health fate right now! We can help.
