These doctors offer both online and in-person consultations to help people understand that the healthcare industry should only be secondary and that your health and wellbeing start with you.
What you eat, how you move, and the relationships you keep all contribute to causing health or disease.
They may not tell you what you want to hear, but their knowledge and approach to disease is what you need to stay empowered about health and wellbeing.

One of his famous quotes states that
“My message is clear and absolute: coronary artery disease need not exist, and if it does, it need not progress. It is my dream that one day we may entirely abolish heart disease, the scourge of the affluent, modern West, along with an impressive roster of other chronic illnesses.”
