My mission is to educate people how to sustain youth and health by treating, reversing and preventing chronic diseases, optimizing body regeneration and bringing completeness with mind, body and soul connection.
My favorite quote: "Gone are the days of diagnosing the ill, prescribing the pill and sending the bill, which has worked so well in combating communicable disease, but is hopelessly inadequate in the fight against chronic disease," said ABLM Executive Director Stephan Herzog.
I believe in holistic approach to wellness and lifestyle medicine (traditional medicine is excellent for acute illnesses but fails to treat 99% of chronic conditions, which are vastly treatable and preventable by lifestyle and mind set modifications).
