His approach enables most people to experience objective results in a short amount of time, remedying the often times slow, difficult results achieved by most practitioners.
Specializations Blood Sample Analysis to determine immune cell function Dr. Phil has studied with Ronald K Schneider, a world renowned immuno-enzymologist, and Nobel Prize Finalist in the field of Darkfield Phase Contrast Microscopy and the field of immune-enzymology.

Personal Transformation Decades ago, prior to embarking on a career in healthcare, Dr. Phil battled with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, a rare form of cancer which attacks the lymph nodes. His problems were compounded with a double disc herniation in his lower back. It was through this transformational experience he learned that only a highly functioning immune system, along with improved cellular communication, can redirect the body towards optimal health. “My career in healthcare has been nothing short of spectacular, I have helped countless people achieve a higher level of health and wellness”.
