Now, here's his exclusive interview with UltimateHuman.Org:
What originally inspired you to get into medicine/ health/ wellness?
I let my health decline in undergrad and it took me a lot of work and research to rebuild it. I discovered that health is the foundation everything your life is built upon. I wanted to help others resolve their own chronic health issues so they could live a productive and fulfilling life.
What’s your favorite part about working in health?
Seeing the transformations my clients have, especially when their doctor told them nothing could be done.
What are you most proud of in your career so far?
Taking the risk of starting my own business instead of playing it safe and working for someone else who doesn't practice the way I feel is optimal.
What’s something new in health/wellness you wish more people knew about?
How to leverage continuous glucose monitors to dial in your nutrition and blood sugars.
If you could wave a magic wand and fix something about the modern-day healthcare system, what would it be?
Transparent pricing between consumers, doctors, pharmaceutical companies, and insurance companies. It would drive health care costs down dramatically.
What are you most excited about in the future of health?
Improved technology that drives down the cost of testing.
Where is the best place to find you and/or your business online?
