Without the work I've done with Donnie, without the Mederi Care approach, without all the support that I've had over all these years, there's no way I could do the work I do... of being able to be a central hub to unite healthcare providers into a fully connected, communicating unified team... to be able to provide for my patients the most profound results spiritually, emotionally, physically... to significantly improve quality of life, longevity, and to also help bring a lot of meaning and purpose to the whole experience of health and healing.      ~ Dr. Jason Miller, Head of Faculty and Content Development

“I attended a combined 7 years of naturopathic and Chinese medical school, and I can honestly say that nowhere in that education did I encounter such a coherent, thoughtful, elegant, and heartfelt approach to the restoration of health and the treatment of cancer and other serious illness. I believe the Mederi Care/ETMS paradigm truly represents both the future and the best of medicine. Never before had I learned a system that’s at once so soundly based in physiology, endowed with genuinely effective treatment tools, and blessed with heart and recognition of the spiritual dimensions of healing. Mederi Care has changed how I practice and has significantly improved the kind of results I see with my patients on a daily basis.”    ~ Dr. Mark Bricca, Naturopathic Physician and founder of Bodhicitta Healing Arts Clinic, Bend, OR
