Just click on the above to view a short video.

After forty years of practicing osteopathic and holistic health care, I have come to realize that there is very little interest in the origin and nature of health. We have a National Health Service, which allocates minimal resources to “health”. It is a disease-prevention, management, and treatment service.

Thank you for following this site, I do try to keep it interesting and try to keep to the main reason for its existence, which is to give advice on health promotion. Usually free by the way!

Any reviews would be warmly welcomed if only to keep me in order!

  Reductionism & Holism

“Da Vinci’s contributions to our understanding of the universe are profound and enduring precisely because of this integration. He realized wholism needed reductionism to advance and reductionism needed wholism to remain relevant. He realized that when you take something out of context to study it more closely or measure it exactly, you risk losing more wisdom than you gain.”
