Dr. Michael Kane, a graduate of Bastyr University in Washington State, has been practicing preventative medicine in Connecticut for the last 22 years. He uses his skills in counseling and knowledge of the human condition to engage and support his patients in a goal oriented way so they can establish a solid foundation of healthy living. He believes that without a solid foundation of healthy support the body will begin to require more and more in the way of intervention. In his experience most people want to have a choice in what forms of intervention are chosen and that if given a choice most people choose a more natural solution.
