there are more genes in the collective human microbiome than there are stars in the observable universe

Our approach to autism is to evaluate each patient for heavy-metal toxicity, gut dysbiosis and other purveyors of chronic #Inflammation https://t.co/SiTiSiMmz1

And in humans similar disturbances occur due to chronic exposure to plastic, gasoline, Roundup, antibiotics, mycotoxins https://t.co/kgzwz05DcK

If you have #allergies, please realize that you are being #gaslighted when your are told that it is the fault of the #environment alone. No it's your #immune system that is dysfunctional. You should be asking, 'how did I get here and how do I fix my immune system?' https://t.co/Ttl0kVlfmx

The #gutmicrobiome is a
chemical factory involved in
producing metabolites that
affect #health, including short-
chain fatty acids ( #SCFAs)
and #tryptophan metabolites, which are essential to make #serotonin and #melatonin, which are essential for optimal #sleep and #mood

Awards & Certifications

Dr DV is dual board certified in internal medicine and integrative medicine. He is licensed to practiced medicine in California and Maryland. As a result of his work with CCIM, Dr DV was named “Top Internist and Integrative Medicine Specialist” in Maryland in 2013, and among the “Top 10 Holistic Doctors” in Los Angeles in 2015.

I have significantly increased muscle mass, tone, flexibility and strength, and am leaner and in better shape than I have ever been, and have increased confidence as well! Working with Dr. DV in the SCULPT program provided me with the right tools, support and medical foundation that expertly fit together all the interlocking pieces to succeed. Dr DV’s deep-level, detailed diagnoses and solutions, and his ongoing meticulous and caring attention was effective to reverse physiological imbalances that were limiting me and causing deteriorating health, and then continued to support me to take the next steps to lose weight, tone my muscles, build strength and achieve overall good health. I am really enjoying the program and the results! -Nantz Rickard Washington, DC 12/22/15
