About My Practice

The gift of a healthy life requires many investments to steward and to bear fruit for self, for others and for God. We work with those willing to invest in themselves or in a family member. The investments that a healthier more abundant life require are time, money, perseverance and sacrifice. The rewards of such investments are immeasurable in terms of family life, vocational productivity, and kingdom building.

Time and life are precious. You have no margin to waste by continuing the search for solutions to poor health. We have no intention of standing idly by when we see a suffering stranger enter our door who is committed to living a healthier more abundant life.

What Patients Can Expect

In the treatment program, we employ the best tools of functional medicine. In this process:
We combine your standard medical tests with advanced specialty labs chosen for their expertise and the insights they offer.
We apply the best therapies from both western medicine and functional medicine, only holding back those therapies which are medically or spiritually dubious. Cutting edge but within the bounds of God’s order of nature.
We empower patients by making them experts in their self care through education and teaching them how to listen to their own body for hints at wellness.
What is next? Saying yes to a healthier more abundant life.
