Dr. Haskell (Sandy) is a licensed Naturopathic Physician with 27 years of clinical experience.  He completed his pre-med at San Francisco State University and graduated from the four year medical program at the first naturopathic medical school, The National College of Natural Medicine.

His post-curriculum studies include training with some of the most renown physicians including Dr. Jonathan Wright, Dr. Alan Gaby, Dr. Frank Shallenberger, Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt, Dr. Thomas Rau and others.

He received his training in intravenous nutritional, oxygen and ozone therapies from Dr. Shallenberger, Dr. Wright, the International Society of Chelation Technicians and from the IVNTP (Intravenous Nutritional Therapy for Physicians).

Sandy has traveled extensively to various clinics to remain at the top of his field, to Germany, Switzerland, Mexico and the Caribbean.

“There are many effective approaches to healing.  There’s the Oriental and Ayurveda perspective, the Western with drugs and surgery, homeopathic and herbal medicines, physical manipulation through chiropractic and osteopathic, and many others.  I’ve chosen what suits me best because I love the investigation, of trying to understand what the causes are for the slow and steady decline in a person’s health.”

“Every person I’ve ever seen has had nutritional deficiencies of some kind or another.  I mean this both in terms of specific nutrients like vitamins, minerals, fatty acids and amino acids but also, people are not eating the right kinds of foods according to their biochemical or psycho-chemical type.  This goes back in to the work of Dr. George Watson and Dr. William Kelly who worked out specific biochemical markers which determine a person’s “type” and then the use of individualized nutritional programs with specific nutrients tailored to each patient.”

“If a person becomes deficient their vitality begins to falter and then they susceptible to environmental toxins.  Their health begins to falter and they start to have symptoms.  This first stage is where most people find themselves.  They don’t feel well, they go to their physician but nothing really shows up on lab tests.  They’re told everything is fine but the person instinctively knows they are not well.”

“My approach is simple and straight-forward because it’s often just a matter of optimizing their nutritional status and helping the body to get rid of stored environmental toxins.  The first step is to evaluate the possible causes of a person’s condition then re-establish optimal nutrient levels through nutrition and intravenous nutritional therapies and finally to use a variety of methods of detoxification.  This can be through herbs, homeopathy, saunas, ozone, any number of ways.”

Sandy’s approach may seem “old school” but at the core of every human being is the miraculous ability or wisdom to improve, to self-regulate, to rejuvenate, to improve its health.  Most of the time all it needs is a helping hand.
