Health is Your Birth Right. A Refreshing Alternative

I am an advocate for the whole health and well-being of my patients and dedicated to identifying and treating the underlying root causes of disease in order to help reinstate a state of health and well being and minimize the years of life many patients spend sick.

Disappointed with the care that I received through conventional medicine and saddened by the fact that although wonderful in acute care, many of the treatments implemented by conventional medicine for chronic health ailments actually worsen or even trigger illness some of which can be chronic, debilitating and even life threatening, I developed my unique approach and protocols for wellness after decades of research, study and experience. 

Fundamental to my practice is the fact that we are integrated beings and all systems in our body are interconnected and in constant communication within and with the external environment.

About Dr. Rashel

Therefore, our environment from conception through life, tremendously impacts our health, and toxins, either physical or emotional can trigger and cause disease. These are factors that I address with each patient because wellness can never be achieved by addressing a single isolated symptom without regard to the remainder of the body as a whole or the root causes of where the symptom stems from. We will work together and take the time to decipher the root causes of your health ailments while we peel away the layers that have contributed to your current symptoms or state of health. Through this process It’s very common for most patients to experience large increments of on going improvement in their health as the layers that contributed to illness uncovered and addressed and have full resolution of symptoms.

My Practice is set up not with the goal of booking as many patients as possible in a day or hour like some, but in a way that will give me plenty of time to really listen to and hear you, and you plenty of time to tell your hear your story, so that I can make the best assessment and plan for your path to recovery and optimal health. You connect with a doctor who is actually trying to figure out why your health isn’t optimal and address the core issues no matter how complex. You receive answers to your questions and the kind of care I wish I had when I needed it years ago. And we get to even have some fun in the process, and the opportunity for you to learn about your own body, biochemistry, physiology and genetics and environment while we uncover and identify and treat the root causes of your symptoms or any Diagnoses.

This knowledge will place the power of health back in your hand where it belongs.

This is described beautifully by Dr. Jeffery Bland, in his book the Disease Delusion, that illustrates that diseases’ as we have known them until now, don’t in fact exist as a disease entity. They are symptoms of other underlying processes that once identified and treated result in the disappearance of the so-called dis-ease. Through the functional model of medicine I work with you to identify these processes and thereby markedly improve your current health and long- term quality of life.
