Memorable Moments:

“Your child’s body will continue to act a certain way regardless of how many medicines or supplements you use if you don’t have a solid foundation of nutrition first.”

”Just as there are causes of the symptoms of a cough…like the flu or bronchitis or tuberculosis, there are causes of chronic disorders and illnesses….Symptoms are a warning sign from the body that something else is wrong, and the only way to address it is to get the body examined further, specifically with functional lab testing.”

”There is a very close connection between the gut and the brain, and one of the first signs of a disconnect in the brain is a gut that is not functioning well.”

”Food sensitivities are the direct result of something else that’s going on in the gut. Something is CAUSING the food sensitivities.”

”Food sensitivities are not true allergies but they do cause inflammation in the body and so you can actually heal from sensitivities.”

”Getting people better is better than prescribing a pill.”
