Mentorship Program

For years, I have had a vision of a world in which everyone is allowed to learn whatever they choose in whatever way they choose. It would be a world in which learning and education — rather than “schooling” — are front and center. Within this world, I see the need for mentors more than degrees and licenses.

To that end, I have established a mentoring program, which is open to anyone who wishes to learn more about how to bring efficient, experience-based, natural medicine to their patients and clients.  The goal will be to give you access to my experience of almost four decades as a natural-medicine physician.  Our work together will be, essentially, collaborative. I will want to hear from you what you wish to learn, or we will explore together what aspects of working with your patients or clients you need help with.

 

What topics might we explore?

  • nutritional therapies (I will share the diet forms we have created in my practice)
  • herbal medicine
  • how to interview patients or clients
  • how to treat heart disease
  • how to interpret lab tests
  • how to use specific medicines, such as low-dose naltrexone and mistletoe
  • how to treat autoimmune disease
  • how to treat childhood illnesses, both acute and chronic
  • how to run an independent practice (including medical-record keeping and how to set up a community-supported payment program to increase patient access)

My expectation is that, as a result of this mentoring program, your learning curve will shorten from decades of false starts into a few months of working in a way that’s both effective and meaningful for you.  You will have more confidence in your ability to support patients or clients. You will have ready access to all the medicines, contacts, forms, and other tricks and tools I have learned in these many years.

When I originally decided to offer myself in this way, I thought I “should” restrict access to only those people with medical degrees or other state-sanctioned “official” licenses.   Then, my hypocrisy alert went off. To me, confining knowledge to only “state-sanctioned people” is a profound undermining of people’s freedom to express themselves.

 

Who is this program for?

  • medical or naturopathic students
  • new or veteran M.D.s or D.O.s wanting to transition to a more holistic approach
  • new or veteran M.D.s or D.O.s wanting to learn only about specific medicines, such as mistletoe or low-dose naltrexone or strophanthus
  • herbalists, nutritionists, chiropractors, Chinese-medicine doctors, health-and-wellness coaches
  • anyone who isn’t on this list but who is interested; tell me about yourself by sending an email to the address below.

Pricing

My request is $250 for each 90-minute session. You can schedule as many sessions as you like. If that amount is arduous for you, we’ll find an amount that works for both of us.
