We use raw milk as a part of our nutritional protocols. Many believe that raw milk is bad because it is dairy. What we always say is that it is not the dairy, but the non-raw dairy that is the problem.

When we first started practicing 20 years ago-we were on board with the idea like everyone else that high cholesterol was an evil to be treated fiercely. Over time, we started to realize that patients who came to us-with high levels of inflammation also had high cholesterol. What was more interesting was that over time with the diet methods we employ and the anti-inflamatory protocols (which at first look might look like something that would increase cholesterol) actually were lowering cholesterol levels without doing anything with the intention of lowering it. As we continued on the Ph.D.

A very big part of what we do is not only to treat those seeking help for their Interstitial Cystitis, but to educate people regarding the prevention of such chronic health conditions. Changes in our mindset and lifestyle is often critically important to improving our health.
