Like many of you, I too use to ask questions such as "Who am I?", "God, what is my purpose in this world?". I knew that to hear God's voice clearly, I must do away from all distractions (2 Corinthians 9:6-8). I decided to spend a year in the wilderness. During this time, God answered my prayers and gave me purpose; thus The Perfect Prescription was born.
After three years of traveling around the world learning about different health beliefs and diverse approaches, The PPrX is now ready to be shared with the world. The PPrX believes that for a person to reach their highest level of greatness, equilibrium must first be achieved. To reach this level of stability, the body has to be balanced from the inside and out. The Perfect Prescription focuses on treating the whole body, not just the disorder. We are all different and should be treated as so. There is no one-fits-all algorithm when God spent so much time molding all to be so different from one another. The PPrX will help you peel all the layers of contentment, excuses, laziness, procrastination, negative thoughts, and actions, and self-doubt so that you can be free to become that person we both know is already inside you. As I tell my patients, our goal is to leave you better than how we found you.
-Created by Us. Perfected for You.

Matthew 6:25-27 “Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life?”
