Experience the Essence of Vitality

Pioneering Evolutionary Health and Wellness

Good health is the foundation of a life well-lived. Without it, we are merely surviving. Vitalogy is the study of vitality within a human and their environment. Being vital goes beyond simply being healthy; it signifies a capacity to live fully, greater than the sum of all parts. It's the state where the true essence of living is felt, heard, tasted, seen, and inhaled. Through experiential learning, inner understanding, and healthy choices, we aim to promote a meaningful human existence. This is the ultimate expression of health.

“For what it’s worth... it’s never too late, or in my case too early, to be whoever you want to be. There’s no time limit. Start whenever you want. You can change or stay the same. There are no rules to this thing. We can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it. I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you’ve never felt before. I hope you meet people who have a different point of view. I hope you live a life you’re proud of, and if you’re not, I hope you have the courage to start over again.”

The Path of Balance

In a world where the extremes are holding the attention, what are we missing? We are missing the middle way. The path of balance, the path of homeostasis. To combine ancient wisdom with modern science is to create balance. Spontaneous vs calculated, vibrant vs dull, let's aim for the middle path. A place of contentment and longevity. Find your middle way.


The Best Parts are Greater than the Sum

Let's hold reverence to nature and where we came from -there's a reason we have survived thus far. Then let's take that wisdom we honor and apply it to our modern lives. We are natural beings living in a not natural world. Use science as a tool, not the gospel. Use medicine as a basis to understand your body and use Center for Vitalogy to unlock genuine health

Science of Stress ~ Art of Relaxation

While many of us actively investigate stress management every day for ourselves as well as our patients, have we ever understood the deeper state of why we all have so much stress? Why have we created a belief system that whatever it is we are stressed about is by far the most important thing going on in the world? In the Buddhist Tradition, the four noble truths as taught by the Buddha says, the life is full of stress (dukkha), there is a cause of this stress, it is possible to stop stress, and there is a way to stop stress by following noble eightfold path. Stress is a part of us, stress can get things done but too much stress hurts our bodies, minds, and hearts.

Let's talk about how we can do our part, not only for ourselves, but for our families, our friends, our communities and the world. I don't need to go into what crazy times these are. We are getting enough of that every time we turn on an electronic device. I want to talk about why preventive health will be the lifeline of the world going forward. You ask anyone in the world right now what they wish they would have done before the outbreak of COVID-19? PREPARE BETTER. None of us had a clue only a month ago what we are facing right now. The world has turned upside down. But we are here, right now, and this is the time to address THE MOST IMPORTANT THING in this crisis - HOW TO KEEP OURSELVES HEALTHY.
‍Lokah Samastah Sukhino Bhavantu
“May all beings everywhere be happy and free. May our thoughts, our words, and our actions, contribute in some way to that happiness and freedom.”
A sweet Sanskrit chant with a lovely translation, an offering of loving-kindness to all beings, including yourself.
