About Me

I help individuals with chronic diseases manage their condition and improve the effect of their medicine through the appropriate use of well-researched natural supplements.

Having degrees in pharmacy and natural therapy, I draw on my decades of clinical experience, research skills and love of integrated medicine to help consumers live healthier and happier lives.
