Dr. Jim Roach M.D.
From Dr. Andrew Weil’s conferences on ‘Nutrition and Health’, to Botanical, Anti‐ Aging, and Holistic conferences, a new truth has emerged for me. That truth is that we have to care about each other, we need to become centered, find focus, and respect our bodies through targeting treatments that will treat us kindly. Conventional approaches compose just a fraction of the successful treatments available. There are hundreds of thousands of studies on natural approaches to health – this information simply needs to be applied. Dr. Clawson and I have studied under the amazing Don Yance, perhaps the best healer in the country, and have achieved results that we never dreamed were possible. Our office is a very welcoming environment that will help you feel at home – come join us!
