When we learn to take care of all the contributors that affect our brain health, we can have a joyful, calmer mind. There’s no shame in having a healthier brain!

Likewise, a calmer mind allows us to better take care of all our bodily systems, from our gut to our heart. 

That’s the goal of functional, integrative medicine. We address the body as one cohesive unit and get to the root cause of disease, instead of treating isolated symptoms. 

This is key to achieving a better quality of life. Until your last breath.

The research shows we don’t have a mental health issue. We have a brain health issue

Here's the dealio.

We specialise in brain health and how it affects cognitive decline, mental well-being, and physical health. 

We help you prevent and reverse illness by combining our expertise as a Medical Doctor and a culinary nutrition pro (the way we see it, every doctor should have a nutritional chef).

Most importantly? We guide you with compassion, love, fun, and no-holds-barred hope. So you can enjoy the moments that matter most—long into the future.

what we do

Over the past 40+ years together, we’ve both overcome our own share of physical and mental health issues. We understand the yuckiness you might be experiencing all too well. 

We also share a deep love of our two daughters, Latin Music and Tina Turner, the beach—and helping folks like you optimise their health! 

That’s our mission ‘til we go to Heaven, baby. 

30+ years in the medical field, 10+ years in nutrition, & over four decades of marriage—wowza!

our experience

Secret talents: GOLF, BASKETBALL, AND JUST CHILLAXIN' AT THE BEACH!

My parents both died young and I was on track to a similar fate in my 50s. Not wanting to bring the same pain to my family, I completely changed my lifestyle. By the time I got to my 60s, I felt way younger than I did at 50. Still do. 

I offer practical, everyday cooking skills and an exploration into the therapeutic properties of the foods we eat. My goal is to show you how food affects your thoughts and all of your body’s systems. As a Functional Nutrition Chef, I listen to your history and look at genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors that all play a role. We’ll treat food as medicine to improve your long-term health.

Secret talents: DANCING, PAINTING, & PLANTING SUNFLOWERS

As a suicide survivor, I’ve experienced the darkest of times. By the grace of God, that plan was stopped and I’ve recovered. But back then, I was told I’d have to be on antidepressants and sleeping tablets for the rest of my life. I knew there had to be another way.

After two decades as a traditional medical doctor, I realised that our current medical system teaches dependency on medications. It doesn’t empower people to be in control of their health and give them hope. So, in 2013, I embarked on my own with the goal of helping more people, mastering the integrative approach we take today at Doctor on a Mission.
