He and his wife Karen presently have a holistic practice in Florida where they see clients and do telephone, internee (and sometimes in person) consultations in homeopathy all over the world. Some of their clients are right around the corner, throughout the US, Canada and South America. Some even consult from Singapore, Europe and Africa.
In March of 2001, he and Karen founded the Society For Vitalistic Health - a healing ministry dedicated to promoting natural healing and Homeopathy for its members and their families (both 4 legged and 2 legged).
