Don't Wait For Your Wake Up Call!

As an Integrative Health Practitioner I have come to realize that we simply haven't been taught how to optimize our health, and that the average person has habits that are negatively impacting their health, due to this lack of knowledge, through no fault of their own. Public health and our school system simply don't teach us enough about nutrition, sleep, stress, gut health or how interconnected our bodies are! Modern life has us more sleep deprived, stressed out and the sickest ever, and I believe it is time to bring this education to you, so that you CAN be empowered in your health and you can then make the right choices for you and your family. The choices you make today impact your future 1 year, 5 years, 10 years + from now. It is never too early to start looking after your health, as Health is your TRUE wealth....without it what do you have?


episode 42: E042: Our Dis-ease Is Not A Death Sentence

Dr. Tom and I discuss how the way he practices medicine has changed since his med school days, it’s no longer about giving someone a diagnosis with doomsday messaging or relying just on a pill, it is more than that and revolves around the idea of metabolic flexibility.  The ability for the body to cope with stresses and recover, to enjoy relaxation, and then be able to move back into a stress state, it all about a body in balance, a body that has flexibility, rather than being stuck in one state of high stress or low metabolic rate.  We are now realizing that the body is amazing at healing itself, given the right environment and people can heal from chronic illness and auto-immune diseases even if you’ve been told otherwise! Looking at the whole body, using food as medicine, practicing self-care, and addressing other lifestyle factors such as sleep and stress, the body truly heals and there is always hope.  Dr. Tom loves to say “let the body finish the job”.
