Biographical Info In 1974, I received a BA degree (Cum Laude) from Concordia College in Moorhead, Minnesota, majoring in Biology with a special emphasis in Biochemistry and Physiology. While attending College, I worked as an autopsy assistant for a pathology group at Fairview-Southdale Hospital in Edina Minnesota, where I lived during two of my college years. After being accepted into the Endocrinology program at Colorado State College, I opted to enter Dentistry at the University of Minnesota, and graduated in 1979 with a DDS degree. A month later (in 1980), I started my dental career in Park Rapids, Minnesota with an emphasis in Cosmetic Restorative Dentistry and Orthopedic Orthodontics. Over the years my interest and knowledge base deepened in Orthodontic and Cranio- Facial procedures in dentistry, as I took hundreds of additional hours in CDE credits to advance my career. In the early 1990's, I began to see there was something missing in traditional medicine and dentistry. Believing there was a connection between nutrition and wellness I began questioning the inherent logic of prescribing pharmaceuticals for every symptom that came along. As I continued treating my patients and expanding my education, it became increasingly clear there was a proven connection between nutrition and optimal health. At that time clinicians, it seemed to me, had not made the connection between optimal health and nutrition. This further began my journey into, “What does nutrition have to do with it?" I began focusing on nutritional, probiotic, glyco-nutrient, enzyme, and endocrine therapies, and I joined the American Nutraceutical Association in 2001. What I noticed was a body of new scientific information that completely supported this new rationale. When a Harvard Medical Study in 2000 connected silent inflammation to periodontitis and heart disease, the link was complete. After joining the American Academy of Anit-Aging Medicine, (A4M) I pursued board certification and fellowship status which really tied it all together for me. Since that time my passion has only grown. My Life-Rejuvenation Program and its content is the fruit of that passion. Visit: Life Rejuvenation Systems for more information.
