Most of my adult life has been spent in the pursuit of knowledge to help people live better, more fulfilling disease-free lives.
My mission for the last two decades has been to inspire people to take personal responsibility for ones own health one day, one meal and one measured step at a time.
Over the past few years I have been working as a Wellness Consultant and as a Health Coach with companies like iCorHealth, a concierge cardiac care subscription service that combines state-of-the-art technology with 24/7/365 tele-access to top board-certified cardiologists for the ultimate peace of mind in heart health, located within Nicholas Children’s Hospital, Coral Gables Florida.

As a Health Scientist, I develop cloud-based TeleHealth nutrition and exercise programs that focus on weight-loss, and preventing chronic disease syndromes through health education, nutrition counseling, exercise science and medicinal plant compounds.
I have experience researching and developing programs that reduce weight, pain, anxiety, and improve sleep though the use of phytocannabinoid products which naturally occur in the Cannabis family of plants.
My research into the co-evolutionary relationships of human, foods and medicinal plants has allowed me to study the history of plants and the apothecary who offered general advise and a range of services that are now performed by other specialist practitioners.
Rancho Santa Fe Medical Center
The evidence-based TeleHealth nutrition and exercise programs that I developed took years of research, observation and working with large pools of clients within the Rancho Santa Fe Medical Center where I was Director of Sports Medicine for Fitness by Design, LLC, located in Rancho Santa Fe California.
My evidence-based TeleHealth programs address malnutrition and lack of physical inactivity as the key causation of chronic disease syndromes such as heart disease, type II diabetes and obesity and disease like syndromes like pain. Weight-loss through improved nutrition and increased activity such as walking, are the keys elements to improving health.
Malnutrition can be defined as the insufficient, excessive or an imbalanced consumption of macro/micro nutrients which can manifest in chronic disease disorders depending on which nutrients that are lacking or consumed in excess.
Physical inactivity is a term used to identify people who do not get the recommended level of regular physical activity. A Report by the Surgeon General on Physical Activity and Health recommended the minimum level of physical activity required to achieve health benefits was a daily expenditure of 150 kilocalories in moderate or vigorous activities. (40 minute walk)

My recommendations are evidence-based and consistent with guidelines established by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the American College of Sports Medicine.
My objective is help steer people away from the Western America diet which has facilitated an “evolutionary clash and or a discordance,” which has been detrimental to human health since the end of the Paleolithic era and the beginning of the Neolithic era with the introduction of cereal grain agriculture and diet.
Simple put, our ancient genome has not had the time to adapt with the nutritional qualities of recently introduced foods such as refined grains, sugar, trans-fats, and processed foods which included altered animal and dairy proteins which may underlie many of the chronic diseases facing our global civilizations where the Western American diet has been introduced.
By returning to a simpler ancestral hunter-gatherer diet, one high in plant-based foods, moderate marine proteins, low in grains, meat, fowl, and dairy proteins, by increasing physical activity such as walking, we can reduce weight and prevent most if not all manmade chronic disease syndromes.
In the end millions of years of evolution did not prepare us for genetically modified agriculture, fast foods, and the ready availability of empty calories that do more damage to human beings then anyone could imagine.
More and more science is discovering that the human biome, the billions and billions of bacteria that inhabit our digestive system, affect well-being, allergies, disease progression, intellectual capability, productivity – pretty much every aspect of life.
Introducing foods that didn’t exist as we developed our biological selves into this complex environment results in a host of unintended consequences – most of them negative called ” chronic disease syndromes.”
In the end its a “commitment,” my evidence-based highly effective nutrition & exercise program uses digital Telehealth technology to track, measure and interact with participants via smart phone and wearable technology improves health rapidly and the secure HIPAA compliant data is used to quantify results.
