Nutrition and Botanical Medicine form the backbone of biological treatment at AcuHealth. What Robert calls “laying the foundation” involves an evaluation of each patient’s unique nutritional needs relative to symptoms, age, overall health, activity level, and knowledge of proper food preparation. Following the adage that “eating properly may be inconvenient but not eating properly will lead to greater inconveniences” he encourages a frank discussion about how to use foods for healing and staying healthy.

"The doctor of the future will no longer treat the human frame with drugs,

but rather will cure and prevent disease with nutrition."  -Thomas Edison

At AcuHealth our reputable sources for Herbs and Nutraceuticals use only the highest quality ingredients: companies like Health Concerns, Wise Woman Herbals, Douglas Labs, Thorn, and Golden Flower to name a few. We offer the ability to use herbs in capsules, tablets, tinctures, or even in the historical tradition of Chinese Medicine, as teas designed specifically for each patient.

Meditation comes alive through a growing capacity to release our habitual entanglement in the stories and plans, conflicts, and worries that make up the small sense of self, and to rest in awareness. In meditation, we do this simply by acknowledging the moment-to-moment changing conditions—the pleasure and pain, the praise and blame, the litany of ideas and expectations that arise. Without identifying with them, we can rest in the awareness itself, beyond conditions, and experience what my teacher Ajahn Chah called jai pongsai, our natural lightness of heart.

Modern Medicine, God Particles, and Ayn Rand. Oh My.

Ever wonder why so many people are so sick with so many different chronic and debilitating conditions? I do. In fact, I think about it all the time. Much of the last several years has been spent interacting with individuals who are ill, sometimes desperately ill. For these individuals, modern medicine has failed and failed miserably. Indeed, many have been cast out of traditional medicine altogether, their illnesses deemed too complex to solve. For all its technical sophistication, modern medicine falls decidedly short when it comes to the complexity of functional illness.
