I am a holistic doctor who has traveled an amazing healing journey in my own life. For many years, the pain of inflammatory arthritis made it a painful challenge for me to climb just one flight of stairs. At age 47, I experienced a quantum shift in my health and at 49, ran my first marathon.
I have been called a thought leader in today's healthcare arena, and I offer a unique, empowering and sometimes controversial perspective in my speaking and writing. Some of my more thought provoking ideas:
"The 'Doctor Within' is the most successful doctor in history."
"We don't have a healthcare system. We have a disease industry."
"Germs are not the cause of disease."
"If you want healthy kids, let them get dirty."
I am the author of the award winning book, "Oby's Wisdom! A Caveman's Simple Guide to Holistic Health and Wellness." I am also a holistic chiropractor and energy healer in private practice in Sandpoint and Hayden, Idaho.
My other interests include Aikido, trail running, snowboarding, hiking, kayaking, yoga, reading and cooking.
Holistic health is my second profession. My first was as an officer in the U.S. Marine Corps. My years as a Marine along with growing up as an army brat have taken me to the far corners of the globe.
Today, I am settled in beautiful Sandpoint, Idaho, where my wife, our fuzzy feline companions and I feel blessed to live, love, work and play amid the Idaho Panhandle's towering pines, majestic mountains and sparkling lakes.
