My guest today is Dr Tom Yarema.

As a member of the generation of physicians whom created the specialty of Emergency Medicine, Dr. Tom learned that much of good medicine was common sense, a strong listening ear, and good resource management.

After 11 years of full-time Emergency Medicine in inner cities, rural enclaves, suburban hospitals, and in foreign relief work, Dr. Tom realized the greater challenge facing medicine was the treatment of chronic disease.

Finding predominantly symptomatic treatment of chronic disease in the Western Allopathic model, Dr. Tom broadened his training to include Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture, Ayurveda, Homeopathy, Clinical Nutrition, Environmental Medicine, and Spiritual Healing. He retired from Emergency Medicine and established the first cash-based MD private practice of general medicine in Hawaii in 1996.

His own personal health challenge, a sudden diagnosis of Type 2 Diabetes at age 41 with no family history, propelled him into ‘disease reversal’ rather than merely treatment. Through bridging the medical sciences of Western Biochemical Nutrition, and the medical dietology of TCM and Ayurveda, he reversed his condition and it remains so now 16 years later.
