After completing my Western medical training in 1972 I started to learn more about natural and traditional medicines and I also moved from a busy city to the beautiful small town of Bolinas on the California coast about an hour north of San Francisco.
I began my studies of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) during this period and began to develop the integration of Natural, Eastern and Western therapies that would become the foundation of my medical philosophy, which I have come to call NEW Medicine. Being closer to nature and her seasons while reading about the Chinese 5 Elements, I was inspired to write my first book Staying Healthy with the Seasons. I also did my first Spring Cleanse detox during this time and it was a life-changing experience for me.
