Born in Holland (close to the red light district). matriculated with a Ph.D. in Clinical Physiology and Nutritional Biochemistry at 19 - moved to South Africa to work (on the extra-corporeal circulation pump - Groote Schuur) & start med school. Landed in the middle of Apartheid and couldn't stay out of the way for very long. Imprisoned I escaped to Calcutta and spent 3 years hiding in a Catholic mission - venturing out only at night. Found "holism''. Flew to and tried finishing (but hated) Loma Linda med school - finally leaving, in total disgust, under the auspices of the International Red Cross for Guatemala - where again, with my luck, landed in (the middle of) a civil war. A martial artist (with an emphasis on blades) I killed a lot of bad people both in Africa & Guatemala. Returning to the western states I taught at a few select schools (including USC, Berkeley, LACC) & after a few years started private practice. Since 1984 I've owned and operated a holistic clinic on the East Coast & have guest lectured at St. Johns, NYCU, USCMC & Princeton U.
