Dr. Myers views his job as a physician to help his patients heal and to restore health where it has waned. One of the primary ways he supports them is by removing obstacles, or road blocks, in the way of cure. Addiction and dependency to anything proves to be a major obstacle. While many times the addiction is not the foundational issue, the addiction needs to be taken out of the equation so that the core issues can be addressed.

Prior to that, he attained a B.S. in Biology from Iowa State University of Science and Technology in 2010. He was a combat medic in the US Army from 2003-2006, stationed in Ft. Benning, GA.

Aside from medicine, he enjoys playing and recording music, surfing, fishing, and learning how to cook traditional dishes from around the globe. He is working currently to develop more robust detox protocols that ease the withdrawal process and improve recovery post detox.
