I am a Physician with degrees in both Eastern and
Western Medicine. I had my entry into medicine, studying Traditional Chinese Medicine and
Ayurveda. After graduating Top of my class in Oriental Medicine I went on to enter Western
Medical school. Medical School, and particularly my time in the hospital, reaffirmed my
awareness that while western medicine shines in some areas, it is extremely misguided in others.
While allopathic medicine is unparalled in the areas of emergency and Trauma medicine, it is
remarkably deficient in its ability to address chronic disease.The western model is based on
symptom management and does very little to address the root cause or alter the disease process.
In addition the Allopathic model has a very Newtonian, linear and reductionist view of the human
body while the traditional philosophies understood that the body is a multidimensional and
infinitely intelligent quantum pattern of energy. The new physics is confirming what the ancient
traditions knew all along and it is through this lens that the body can be brought into a proper
balance and one in which true healing can occur.
I have always had an interest in the microbiome. Part of this is most likely due to the fact

importance in so many different health conditions and her grandmother, my great-grandmother,
was preaching about the importance of the microbiome as early as the 1930s. They were both
strong, progressive and forward thinking women and while many people thought they were crazy
at that time, the current research is revealing that they were in fact, correct the entire
After graduating medical school and going to practice, I began to see a common theme among
all of the chronically ill patients. The vast majority of them seemed to have some type of
gastrointestinal involvement. This was true of many of the conditions that you would never
associate with so-called gut health and when we addressed their gastrointestinal health,
everything seemed to improve. Luckily, there is a lot of current research that reinforces
this observation, and every day there is more and more information revealing that our
microbiome affects literally every aspect of our physiology. Everything from our
gastrointestinal Health to our immune function and even as far reaching as our mood and
