Dr Joel is an expert at and dedicated to, empowering chronic condition sufferers to finally be recognized, recharge depleted energy stores, and recapture a meaningful life (naturally, without the use of prescriptive medications). Born and raised in Toronto, in a family of traditionally trained medical doctors, Joel broke free from the "inside-the-box" medical approach when he seriously injured his back, and avoided unnecessary surgery. After a series traumatic stressors, graduation from chiropractic college, over $125k of student debt, the birth of his twins, relocating to a Florida, and start-up business demands, toxic exposures, he too has suffered with adrenal fatigue. When he was unable to get a proper diagnosis, he turned to research. Continuing his education in Functional and Integrative Medicine, Joel became a Certified Functional Medicine Practitioner to go along with his doctorate degree, and his 2 undergraduate degrees. One in exercise physiology, and the other psychology. Aside from being a dedicated husband and loving father to his twins, Joel is committed to, and passionate about helping other adrenal fatigue individuals that are really suffering. ?We offer the most comprehensive, advanced, and holistic approaches to help our patients take control of their chronic conditions and gain a new lease on life! ?We accomplish this by combining the latest research in Functional Neurology, Endocrinology, and Immunology along with providing the most cutting edge technologies and treatments to assist you in your recovery.?
