About

Welcome

I am a physician, a family medicine specialist with a focus on total health, diversity, and Washington, DC.

In 2007, I decided to relocate to our nation’s capital, from Seattle, Washington, to further my interests while continuing to live in the future. I believe in open leadership, sharing, and freedom from conflict of interest.

Thanks for publishing my photograph, @DCPolicyCenter (with syndication to @ggwash – thank you also). It was taken in the Shaw neighborhood of Washington, DC (of course), which I say is undergoing its third destruction – first after the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr., second after the drug epidemic, and the current one, referred to …

Just Read: Cutting Carbs Curbs Kilos, Cholesterol, Blood Pressure - And Maybe Not in that Order

We’re now in the era of diabetes reversal. Why don’t more doctors know? Tip for fellow physicians: Question the statement “low carbohydrate diets work only in the short term.” Many of the often-quoted studies about diet and health are surprisingly short term.

Metabolically healthy eating patterns can exist across 100% of the spectrum – with real food performing best and adjustments made for insulin resistance, as well as supplementation, in all categories, which can be done with medical supervision. Anything is better than the standard american diet (SAD), we know how that’s performing.

Even if you live in the future and know where you want to go, it’s important to know where you came from. I’m posting this here for reference – I encourage people interested in the history of …
