meet Dr. Matt,
a relentless researcher of medical science and a caring listener with deep roots in Psychology, Eastern Medicine, Nutritional Biochemistry, and Pharmacology.
MY INTEGRATIVE PERSPECTIVE
I often describe myself as being 'medically bilingual', since the Eastern and Western medical systems are essentially different languages.
I've always had a powerful drive toward fluency in all medical perspectives that makes me a natural translator, a bridge between worlds, a teacher, and a practitioner who can look at any issue from many, many different angles.
I love hard science just as much as I love the mystical, ecologically harmonic qualities of our planet's beautiful history of ancient healing traditions.
I've spent the last fourteen years studying and practicing Eastern Medicine, clinical nutrition, acupuncture, herbology, pharmacology, QiGong, psychology, and anything else that falls under the umbrella of 'Integrative Medicine'.
I can approach any health condition using a variety of different lenses, although I draw most heavily on my training in western clinical nutrition, herbology, lifestyle medicine, acupuncture, and biochemistry.
