Who I am in Faith

I am a Christian holistic (body-soul-spirit) practitioner that offers natural solutions, educational help, professional protocols, programs in Natural Health and yes prayer if requested. I focus on the integration of the body, mind and spirit within a nondenominational, Christian framework. As an ex-drug and alcohol abuser and now as a Christian and Certified Natural Health Professional I put my faith in the full "Gospel of Christ".

The gospel contains, what I believe to be the two greatest powers in the universe as they are mentioned in the bible;  the first is the "person" of Christ Jesus described as all man yet all God, the only sacrificial savior and the only way to God the creator and the second power is the "teachings" of Jesus Christ  which translates "Precepts" and shows us how to live to love God and love others.

 

In todays world, with terrorist raging and every group seeking "legal rights" and the United States as a whole thumbing our nose at the mention of Jesus, the most difficult thing to do yet, It is the most loving thing to tell the truth about the way of salvation. If history and the bible documents that Jesus has said, "I am the way, the truth, and the life; no man comes to the Father but by me" (John 14:6), then each man and woman must ask ourselves perhaps what may be the most important question of our lifetime and then we must decide whether Jesus was telling the truth, a liar or just a big hoax. If we do indeed put or faith in Jesus then for the sake of the forgivness and love he showed us, then for the same sake we must pay our debt to the world, and despise the shaming of the "tolerance" we must tell them, "There is salvation in no one else; for there is no other name under heaven that has been given among men by which we must be saved" (Acts 4:12). The gospel of Christ alone is the power of God unto salvation. Jesus is Lord and Savior and Healer and Deliverer....He is so much more than I, Michael deserve.

 

 

My Mission

To offer the most complete natural health evaluations and natural solutions that provides people with health, hope and support to transform their lives and improve the world.

(Ezekiel 47:12) “And I give you by the river upon the bank thereof, to be found on this side and on that side, and there shall grow on all trees for meat, whose leaf shall not fade in strength, neither shall the fruit thereof be diminish: it shall bring forth new fruit according to his months, because their waters they issued out of the sanctuary: and the fruit thereof shall be for nourishing meat, and the leaf thereof for medicine.”

 

 

 

My Health and Wellness Philosophy in a nutshell

(see my philosophies page)

My philosophy is that when the physical, mental and spiritual aspects of the whole person are developed, true health can be achieved. I've designed my approach to support the integration of all three.  I believe the Bible to be a great source of learning and the final authority on spiritual matters. For these reasons I may share (if feel led) to emphasize the knowledge found in the Scriptures to create a spiritual foundation. Because of the inherent spiritual nature within each of us, there is a need to be spiritually-grounded and knowledgeable when analyzing any health issue.

 

 

My Training and Background

Most people don't know but the word "doctor" comes from the Latin word "docere" meaning "to teach." Doctorate of Philosophy, from the Latin Philosophiae Doctorate, PhD was used in a broader sense in accordance with its original Greek meaning, which is "love of wisdom" and originally this was a license to teach a philosophy on any subject after one has mastered it MA. How far have we come?

 

I  teach natural ways to enhance health, promote optimal wellness and encourage longevity. The Naturopathic approach is holistic and focuses on maintaining wellness, encourage inner healing with an emphasis on conditions/dis-ease prevention. I emphasize creating a lifestyle which includes pure water, clean air, wholesome food, proper diet and nutrition, exercise, proper living, appropriate rest, right thinking, absence from toxic substances, body ecology, effective management of stress and a number of other natural practices which lead to the balanced living concept.

 

I believe that physical health is primarily a reflection of God's universal law of cause and effect. How we care for our bodies is both a physical and spiritual issue that impacts our health and the health of our children. In cases where health principles have been violated, the only true "cure" is for the body to restore its own protective mechanisms by removing those physical and spiritual roadblocks that hinder restoration and/or healing. Course studies in Naturopathy teach practices that build immunity, improve mental health and enhance overall body functions.

 

I give people the tools that are intended to be used for an individual's own personal development. With discretion, an individual may be able to use this knowledge to heal themselves and to educate others.

(Hosea 4:6) My people perish for lack of knowledge: because you reject knowledge, likewise you will be rejected.

 

Nondiscrimination

I personally hold a nondiscrimination policy. I do not discriminate on the basis of gender, race, age, creed, religion, sexual preference or national origin. I conform to all federal laws concerning civil liberties.

 

Historical Roots (see my story page)

I have evolved into a compassionate, powerful healer and educational practitioner that enables people to improve their own health, enhance the good health of their families, friends and communities, and their own professional and personal lives.
