I Saved My Life With Diet Alone.

An Inspiring Speaker



Pain Management With Nerve Blocks and Medications

As an anesthesiologist, I have practiced pain management during my entire career. I had an active practice with nerve blocks and medications until 1997 when I began to practice pain management exclusively at my office.

Pain Treatment With Acupuncture

I learned acupuncture from my late father when I was a pharmacy student. I did not expect to practice acupuncture then. In 1980, I was asked by one of my patients to treat his intractable left shoulder pain of six years. I used acupuncture then, because the patient had tried all other modalities with no success. I have practiced acupuncture since 1981.

Public Speaking

I am hosting a weekly podcast, The Carbohydrates Can Kill Show. I have spoken at meetings on various topics that include diet and health, pain management, and acupuncture. At present, I am particularly interested in helping educate the public about how we can restore our health by proper dieting. I can help teach your meeting participants, company employees, and insurance subscribers about how diet impacts our health and disease prevention and treatment. As a result of learning from presentation, the participants can retool their dieting and save their health care dollar in the long run.  Contact me at for scheduling my speaking at your meeting.
