I’m a big believer in supplements, which traditional medicine ignores. It’s overwhelming for a woman walking into a GMC or Whole Foods, so it’s important to find help knowing what you need and getting high-quality products. I have a supplement area in my office to support my holistic practice, that way I can talk them through what I think they need — including, many times for women, Botanical Extract. We have an endocannabinoid system (found to be important in regulating mood, physiology, and general well-being), and in my experience Botanical Extract is especially helpful for anxiety, sleep, and pain.
Right now I’m getting excited about the disease management and anti-aging possibilities of stem cells — and using not just our own or cord stem cells but CGF (concentrated growth factor), which contains stem cell materials but is not so expensive.
I believe alternative approaches are beneficial and necessary for living longer. I’m a primary care physician and prescribe meds, which are still important for disease and health management, but I’ve always believed that new and alternative modalities are vital to a long life.”
