Here is what I believe:
MY MEDICAL EDUCATION: While working on my chiropractic medical degree I was drawn to do a residency in orthopedics which has given me a better appreciation of fascia, tendon, muscle, joint, and nerve interrelationship and the interdependency they share with each other and the rest of the body. I completed enough hours and experience in nutrition to sit for the rigorous Certified Nutritional Specialist exam. After this designation was awarded to me, I also became a Licensed Dietitian / Nutritionist in State of Illinois. Completing an acupuncture certification program was a natural extension of my training because it provided the electro-magnetic component of healing; and, it was an excellent complement to treating various physical conditions as well as acute and chronic pain management.
