full-time working career began in 1959 when I graduated
college in NYC with an Electrical
Engineering degree. I worked in that field for
about 25 years. In 1971, I formed my own
engineering consulting company and I have been a
self-employed consultant since then.
My publishing experience began in the early
1970's with a featured technical article in
Research and Development magazine. I
continued to publish in the technical field
(mostly computer programming) with numerous
articles. In the early 1990s, I
also published a several books on computer programming,
some of which are still available. My latest book "Your Prostate, Your Libido, Your Life" can be purchased from the Welcome area of the "Men's Health" site. It's a great
gift for the man in your life!
I began studying natural health in the early
1990s due to some minor erectile dysfunction
and urinary problems. for more details on this, see the "About Me" page of the Men's Health site.
With time, my research become pretty intense, and I decided to sign up for
a formal program at the Trinity College of
Natural Health in Warsaw, Indiana where I received certificates as a Doctor of Naturopathy, Master Herbalist, and Nutritional Consultant.
My main push, at that time though, was to help my wife. She had been having health problems for several years and was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, Lupus, Polymyositis
and some other conditions. I had difficulty believing that she had so many serious health problems, and a greater difficulty believing that the dozen or so medications prescribed
for her were actually helping anything.
The breaking point was when she came home one day from a visit to a new doctor who added three more prescription medications to her already overloaded medication regimen.
I started to do some research on the medications she was taking and found that many of her symptoms could be attributed to the side effects of the medications.
Making a long story short, little by little she eliminated many of the medications she was taking and started improving her diet and taking nutritional supplements under my
guidance. About twenty years have now passed and she is considerably healthier then she was then, as well as off most of the medications.
Like myself, she takes many nutritional and herbal supplements which have most certainly contributed to her better overall health. She is now active an relatively
healthy though still dealing with deleterious long-term effects of some of the medications she had been taking.
My primary hobby is racquetball. I am an high-level racquetball player
and have been playing several times a week for about 30 years. I also like to bike, swim,
and occasionally scuba dive.

My non-physical hobby is medical research as is obvious with the nearly 500 studies referenced in my book.
I have been with to my wife
Gerry for about 35 years, and we
have five children and twelve grandchildren.
