Dr. Johnston says,
“Practicing Emergency Medicine for almost 40 years has made me aware of the limitations of Allopathic (classic or traditional) medicine which is based upon the treatment of disease through medications that suppress symptoms and or surgical intervention. This awareness prompted me to go deeper into the understanding of health and disease, I became involved in Integrative Medicine in the 90‘s. I came to realize how much was involved in developing and maintaining a healthy lifestyle: nutrition, attitude, lifestyle, sleep, relationships, supplements, metabolic medicine and nontraditional therapies like those involving the electromagnetic spectrum have all been proven to improve health. I became convinced of the value of these non-traditional therapies in promoting enhanced health and anti-aging. Great health demands combining both traditional and non–traditional approaches to medicine.”
“I am eager to invest my learning for patient‘s health and well–being. My calling involves helping people maximize their potential to enjoy life through healthy living. I want to help you attain a life full of hope with minimal pain so you can utilize your God-given talents and be a light for everyone you meet!”
