David chose nutrition as his career because he believes in the power of food to maintain optimal health and to help restore the body’s highest level of function in the cases of chronic illnesses. Food is one of the most powerful forms of medicine!
His approach is to take a comprehensive overview of a person’s health and find the root cause of what is driving the presenting conditions. This provides the information that will form the basis of the appropriate way of eating that addresses those causes to help restore optimal body function. Working together with a patient, we find ways to translate this information in to a sustainable way of eating.
