About me

Among other I provide osteopathic diagnosis and treatment of dysfunctions and disorders of the digestive and urogenital tract in adults and children. My particular interest is clinical nutrition and biochemistry of nutrition and the impact gives diet modification and the use of natural supplements to promote health and more effective treatment of patients complaints.

I also recommend on proper body mechanics, exercise and healthy living habits.
