With my extensive experience in conventional Western medicine as a Registered Nurse, you will be comforted with my knowledge about your current medical conditions and my ability to collaborate with your physician (with your permission).
I will use my nursing assessment skills during your initial comprehensive visit to complement my TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) assessment and to help provide you with a better understanding of my approach from the TCM theory. I can also provide you with education on your health problems and help you manage your chronic conditions with the integrative approach.
The original father of medicine, Hippocrates, was known
for this famous quote, “Let food be your medicine and medicine be your food”, as he treated his patients by prescribing or eliminating certain foods. Another famous quote, “you are what you eat” is also very true and apparent in many cases of chronic disease.
As a result of personal health issues related to foods, I have developed a wealth of knowledge from the latest research that I use as part of my nutrition teaching from the functional nutrition approach, as a major part of providing you with tools in helping you achieve optimal health and alleviating possible symptoms related to foods.
My goal and passion is to help guide you through all the confusing information on nutrition and diet therapy, what works, the latest research on food and what the experts are saying.
