Cold laser therapy, laser acupuncture, magnets and pulsed magnetic frequencies are just a few of the innovations he utilizes. He has found that ingrained beliefs systems, a.k.a. Energy Programs™, express themselves physically while deeply affecting the healing process. While working to release them, he’s provided answers and relief for patients where none were previously found.

What is your writing Kryptonite? My Kryptonite would be boredom. I’m always investigating news ways to look at healing the body and exploration of the mind. Since I was 12, I began reading esoteric literature, philosophy and new age books.
What literary pilgrimages have you gone on? I’ve traveled to sacred lands in Tibet and the temples of South America particularly the pyramids of Mexico, especially after reading the books of Carlos Castaneda, inspired me to journey in the astral planes. Dr. David Hawkins books took my patients and me through discovery of belief systems and how they related to personal vibration level in consciousness.
Do you want each book to stand on its own, or are you trying to build a body of work with connections between each book? Even in my wide variety of interests I see a constant thread of connections around belief systems and patterns we are elevated by or stuck in.
If you could tell your younger writing self anything, what would it be? Stay focused and be more disciplined so people can hear your truth and be helped by it.
How did publishing your first book change your process of writing? My first book was a workbook I wrote in order to help my patients and student during weekend seminars. It gave me a better understanding on how to write for the reader instead of myself.
What was an early experience where you learned that language had power? When I was about 16, I remember being the bus talking with some neighborhood kids, I was speaking what I thought was the truth about a situation, but really it was my own truth. What I said hurt the feeling of my friend’s sister that she called me to tell me so. I was surprised and saddened that I hurt her feelings. I thought I was only sharing something that was true. I learned I had to speak my truth in way that would be helpful and not hurtful.
How many unpublished and half-finished books do you have? I have one unpublished book and few new ideas for books.
What does literary success look like to you? Literary success for me is hearing stories from readers or patients have put these techniques to work in their lives and have overcome huge obstacles and changed their lives.
What did you edit out of this book?” 11 Best Ways to Face Life’s Challenges, Second Edition – is a condensed easy to read book that gives readers quick simple tools for change. My new book Rewriting Your Life is much more expansive 3 ½ times big and really dives into belief systems and how to recognize and change them.
