Dr. Swift's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Swift "From a very early age I recognized illness and disease. I wanted to do something to help those who were physically sick and I wanted to know personally how to stay healthy. My main emphasis in medicine has always been prevention. "Data from many years of research has shown that we can control our own destiny to a certain extent in the way that we eat, sleep and exercise. Our daily diet controls our destiny for such things as cancer, heart attack and stroke, even dementia. "There is nothing to compare with having the privilege to help someone I've known over 20 years. The patient and doctor interaction is incredibly important. It is quite a privilege to solve health problems and help keep my patients healthy.""
