I read over 100 medical journals each month in order to stay up to date on the latest nutritional science research and help my patients understand how they can take control of their health by implementing well-researched lifestyle changes. Below you’ll find some research references that I find particularly important when taking a naturopathic approach to healing chronic disease. Here are the top citations to show your doctor:
