WORKING WITH DR. STOKES
Since 2001 I have been in active clinical practice. In my peak, the Michigan based clinic saw over 500 patient visits a week. That was intense! But eventually, I grew tired of that pace. Finally, I started to focus on more unusual cases; people who already had been everywhere but still were not getting better. Of course, these patients needed more work and more extended office visits. Over time my practice became much smaller, seeing only about 20 visits a day and sometimes spending up to an hour with the patient. This slower, more detailed form of medicine appealed to me, and the results were often miraculous. But the real story here was that no prescription medications, injections, or surgeries were used. A large part of the treatment was simply lifestyle modification and nutritional supplementation. Now all these years later, I am convinced that the most significant healing modality we have is our own bodies. This innate force, when activated, can heal almost any condition. More times than not, I often find simple things that have been overlooked in a person's health, and once these underlying causes are corrected, the person gets better.
