“I had no idea that I always wanted to be a Changemaker…a Goodmaker.”
Growing up I had no idea that I would be changing the world to make it a better place for us to live happily and healthy. Since young I always thought that I would be an architect and build beautiful houses for people. I came from a family of four, and my parents, although having less education always valued knowledge and health. I remember my dad used to say that if you want knowledge then you need to keep reading. My dad passed at a young age of brain cancer, but I took his words literally. I have not stopped searching for more knowledge. I read, educate, attend schools and training seminars so I can always be the best in what I do and provide. I have been in school consecutively for over 39 years, and the knowledge gained has expanded my perspective in health and happiness.
Getting Stuck and Making a Discovery…
In 1996 I graduated from the University of Toronto with a Honors Bachelor of Science specializing in Nutritional Sciences. I have a clear goal and it is to help people by taking care of their nutrition. My first real job was in a community hospital making dietary planning for sick people. I learned and saw how powerful food can be as medicine or poison for people. It wasn’t enough for me just to make food and see these people recovered so slowly.
I went back to school and decided to be a chiropractor. Why chiropractic? I always envy the holistic nature of this profession and the ability of chiropractor to ‘touch’ and heal people. In chiropractic school, I learn about the anatomy of human, the biochemistry of life which later became very instrumental in my discovery of using nutriceutical agents, the innate ability of human to heal with the correct amount of love, nutrition, and medicine, and last, I learn how to be a doctor. A good doctor is detective, tactician and teacher.
From Generalist…to Specialist…and Back to Generalist
After chiropractic school, I became a specialist in pediatric, nutrition and internal disorders. Along these long journeys of advanced and post-graduate training, I picked up a few accolades such as fellows in public health, integrative medicine and acupuncture, doctors of natural medicine and humanitarian service, board certifications in holistic health and naturopath, and certifications in brain disorders and treatments, genetics nutritional therapy, public health and primary care, disaster management and global affairs, and so on. For more information, see my LinkedIn.
I have expanded my knowledge base from being a general health practitioner to a chiropractic internist specialist, and now back to a generalist in wellness care. In my private practice, I have transformed many times from a family practice to wellness care to medical spa and now to nutritional therapy care. After about 40 years of school, I have learned that food is happiness, medicine and our best friend. The future of medicine is learning how to eat clean and good food.
Helping Patients Recovered the True Meaning of Health and Happiness
Over the past decades, I have helped and advised about the health of many friends, families and neighbors that are thriving today. I have cared for over 3000 fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome patients, over 2000 autism, and over 5000 weight related problems including diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol and metabolic disorders. These people who succeeded have found happiness in good health, precious life moments, and living to the fullest. I, myself has discovered the true meaning of health and happiness by witnessing firsthand of giving life and death. These experiences humble me as a person and physician.
Pushing the Limits to Humanitarian Medicine
As a valuable Board member for ORCD Global, we have also expanded our provision of health care into education, agriculture, research, women empowerment, children protection including the environment and disaster. Health care should not only touch individuals but the people or population in general. This is truly what I believe that good medicine is the right of everybody. In 2010 I received a honorary Doctor of Humanitarian Service from the World Organization of Natural Medicine.
