Hi I'm Alan

I'm a naturopathic physician. I like to think about the universe, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a naturopathic physician and an expert in natural medicine. I believe that the human body has the innate ability to heal itself, and that our medical interventions should honor this fact. I love science. I love learning. I love discovering. I believe that religion and science support each other. All elements of the universe denote there is a God.

Why I am a Mormon

It is a church with answers to life's biggest questions - "Where did we come from?", "Why are we here?" and "Where are we going when we die?" It helps me feel connected to the world and to the unknown. It lifts me up when I am down, and strengthens me when I am weak. It gave me the Book of Mormon, which has guided my life and helped me understand the Bible. It is teaching me how to be selfless and helping me become a better husband.

How I live my faith

I try to live with a smile on my face. I think that if Jesus were on the earth today, no matter how difficult life would be, he would be smiling. I live with the hope of a good life for myself and my family. I live with faith in a higher power that has a plan for me. I try to avoid allowing negative influences to enter my mind, my home, and my life. I pray daily, I read my scriptures in the morning when I stumble out of bed. I listen to uplifting music. I eat my vegetables, and I never run with scissors. I served a mission for the church in the Frankfurt, Germany area during 2000-2002.

What is the Book of Mormon?

The Book of Mormon is a record of God's dealings with people who inhabited the American continent from approximately 600 B.C. to approximately 400 A.D. This book compliments the Bible as a book of scripture. It was written by ancient prophets and translated into English by a modern-day prophet, Joseph Smith. This book is a testament of Jesus Christ. It is also a sign that God treats His children equally, no matter which continent they live on. Just as God spoke to Moses, Abraham, and Noah, He also called prophets on the American continent and spoke to them. These prophets recorded their experiences for the world to read. One key experience that is recorded in the Book of Mormon is the visitation of Jesus Christ to the American continent after he was resurrected. The Book of Mormon contains a promise in its final pages that if a person will pray to God and ask Him about the truthfulness of the book, God will let that person know through His Spirit that the book is true.
