Tyler is an aspiring Naturopathic Doctor, who attends the National University of Natural Medicine (NUNM) in Portland, Oregon. His journey in medicine began in college when he fell in love with food. Tyler had always been a firm believer in educating others about their health. He believes that practitioners have the unique opportunity to be a teacher and a mentor that encourages others to take self-responsibility for their health and empower their patients and the general public with the knowledge necessary for living a healthy, happy, and sustainable lifestyle. Tyler believes that we, as a society, are starting to move toward a more preventative and natural approach to medicine. With the rise in chronic disease and the increased patient frustration from minimal treatment options, now, more than ever, people are starting to get second opinions from alterative medicine practitioners. While it can be easy to get caught up in the latest fads and dietary trends, Tyler believes that the food we eat creates the foundation for life. When it comes to food choices, his golden principle is this: Eat nutrient-dense, unprocessed foods, that celebrate plant diversity, emphasize quality, and encourages a balanced, adequate, and varied diet. By making this simple shift, you can make a profound impact on your health and vitality.
