True Health Medical Center has been providing integrative and biomedical treatments that enhance traditional medical care since 2003.
Welcome to True Health Medical
Center. I want to take a moment to thank you for considering True Health
Medical Center for your health and well being. The journey that has led me here
is a very personal one.
After completing my degree at
Indiana University Medical School, I began my residency in Family Practice at
Cook County Hospital in Chicago. During residency, I had my first daughter, who
had severe food allergies and asthma. My second daughter, who was born shortly
after, was diagnosed with juvenile onset diabetes. My third daughter had
chemical sensitivities to environmental substances like cleaning agents,
perfumes, pesticides, and synthetic clothing. Even with my extensive education and training, I felt
ill equipped to handle their medical issues. I began questioning my role as a
physician and healer. I wanted to shift my attention from treating the symptoms
of their disorders to treating the underlying cause of their disorders. I found traditional medicine unable to provide me with the answers I was looking for. I wanted to know more about why my children,
and so many other children and adults in epidemic proportions, are suffering
from chronic degenerative autoimmune disorders, such as asthma, allergies, arthritis, diabetes, OCD, mood disorders, attention-deficit
disorder, ADHD, and autism spectrum disorders.
The mission in opening True
Health Medical Center came from my journey to help my own children with these
chronic disorders to lead productive and healthy lives. This simple dream has
been shattered for so many families. My goal as a physician is to use evidence-based
research and functional medicine to provide possible solutions and to help
rebuild hope for suffering families. Being the
senior medical attending physician at the Pfeiffer Treatment Center for five
years paved the way for my interest and passion in treating children,
specifically in the autism spectrum which I believe includes ADD/ADHD. Over the past 20 years, I have learned that true health can be achieved by transforming
the mind, body and spirit back to its natural state. By focusing on detoxification, immune,
gastrointestinal, endocrine, mitochondrial, and methylation issues we are able
to address the underlying causes of disease and dysfunction. Then with the aid of nutraceuticals (vitamins,
minerals, amino acids, fatty acids, enzymes, natural hormones, etc.), herbals,
probiotics, homeopathics, energy medicine, and pharmaceuticals, the patient and
family can begin their metamorphosis. All
of us at True Health Medical Center are dedicated to addressing the healing
process from the inside out.
My staff and I are actively
involved in numerous organizations such as Defeat Autism Now! and the Autism
Research Institute (ARI), National Autism Association (NAA), Autism ONE,
and Talk About Curing Autism (TACA), which advocate treating patients
using a biomedical approach. These organizations have also brought to the
forefront the dangers of environmental toxins leading to autoimmune disorders
in susceptible families. As clinicians, our goal is to help every family that
enters our office. We strive to stay up-to-date with the latest research, seminars,
conferences, and evidence based medicine so that we may provide you with the biomedical interventions that make the most sense for each individual.
Our goalof transforming
the mind, body and spirit takes creativity, motivation and determination, but
its rewards are immense.
The journey to True Healing and
True Health begins here.
