“I view aging as a treatable diseases. I firmly believe that the process of physical aging can be slowed, stopped, or even reversed through existing medical and scientific interventions. I believe that hormone replacement therapy is the key to a long and productive life.”

“Being on the front lines of medicine has been very rewarding, but it is not enough. There is still so much I want to do. Before I entered medical school, I dreamed of operating a true healing center. …Now, I want to follow that vision. I am committed to utilizing the best of traditional medicine, as well as alternative/integrative methods to manage the symptoms of aging and chronic illnesses such as diabetes, cancer, and heart disease.”
Challenging traditional medicine’s approach to treating the symptoms of aging, the Enhancement of Life Center’s mission is to create a paradigm shift in the way we view medicine and aging: treat the cause.
