Bill: At 42, Dr. Code was at the height of a successful and challenging career in Anesthesiology when a Neurologist diagnosed the symptoms that had plagued him for fifteen years as progressive Multiple Sclerosis, an autoimmune disease where the immune system attacks the central nervous system (brain, spinal cord and optic nerves), often resulting in severe pain and neurological deterioration. Because treatment options were extremely limited in the traditional medicine model, Dr. Code lost his hospital privileges and could no longer work in the field of Anesthesiology. It was not until 1997, while attending a conference entitled Complimentary & Alternative Medical Choices for Multiple Sclerosis that Dr. Code began to have hope. He immediately gave up wheat and experienced an improvement in his symptoms. Dr. Code began to investigate the integration of organic foods, vitamins supplements and other holistic wellness regimens to facilitate his healing process. It was his own progression over the next few months that drove Dr. Code’s passion in Integrative Medicine, an approach to medicine that encompasses both convention treatments but also combines natural medicine paradigms. Recently, Dr. Code has completed a 2-year fellowship at the renowned College of Medicine, University of Arizona, founded by Dr. Andrew Weil. His areas of study include; Nutrition, Ayurveda (Indian) Medicine, Traditional Chinese Medicine, Homeopathy, Osteopathy, and Herbal Medicine, and is one of the leading experts in Glutathione, the master antioxidant that is vital to the detoxification process and often depleted in people suffering most chronic disease.
Kristina: Kristina Mitts is A Clinical Nutritionist and Microbiome Expert helping people to heal microbiome issues and maximise their quality of life.
After going through her own severe chronic microbiome health problems and not getting results from different modalities she took her health into her own hands. Throughout the process of healing herself from chronic health issues she developed an appreciation for viewing the human body as an intricate woven piece of art. Weave a piece here, tangle a bit there and you'll end up with a knot over there that blocks function on multiple layers. She likes to imagine that through using a healthy knowledge of holistic health, along with a bit of help from testing we can unravel the tangles and piece together the masterpiece that we are meant to be.
