"When my sister spoke so highly of you I knew I had to come and make an appointment on my next visit to New Jersey. You have helped me solve health problems that I had for years."
"I really can’t believe how powerful hypnosis is. I accomplished more in 6 months then I have in 3 years of therapy. I have better self esteem, motivation, and I am now a more positive person. I used to be a worry wart and negative about everything in life. Dr. Robert your service is fantastic."

“I am so glad I consulted with you. The chemotherapy I was receiving was causing me to lose weight. Through your diet I was able to put the much needed weight back on and keep my immune system strong. Even when I had trouble getting food down you were able to work out a way for me to get my much needed calories. I still avoid those foods you told me would weaken my immune system and I feel you really helped me during my treatments.
- Mildred Harnack,
“I have nothing but great things to say about The Banish! Program. I am 53 and have smoked since I was a teenager. I have tried to quit countless times. Cold turkey, patches, gum, zyban, you name it I tried it. All except hypnosis. I'm not even sure how I found out about your site, but I decided to sign up. Right after the session I felt different. Very little cravings and no cheating. I have been smoke free now for 5 months. This is a huge accomplishment for me. I have never been able to go more then a week or two without backsliding and returning to smoking. I am so delighted that your program worked. I have told several people about it and will continue to spread the word if anyone is trying to quit.”
“You're a hit. We received a lot of positive feedback regarding your programs. Your really provide a great service to the community. Thank you for the all the hard work in making our programs a success. We look forward to working with you again.”
Central School District, NY
“Since I started working with Dr. Robert I haven't had a flare up of my ulcerative colitis.”
“Your were the third nutritionist I saw in 7 years. I never had anyone spend as much time and ask me as many questions as you did. You are very thorough in what you do. My acne cleared up, my energy came back and I feel bad saying this, because everyone wants to lose weight, but I gained the weight I needed.”
-Mary Lou, Maywood, NJ
“The migraines I have had during my PMS week are much improved. Your advice worked.”
“I met Dr. Robert at a health fair a year ago. We spoke for a while and I knew I had to consult with him in regards to my daughters asthma. Since working with him she has needed less of her medication and her asthma is much more manageable.”
-Alexis Varner, NJ
“You really helped me advance my career by helping me overcome my fear of public speaking.”
-Brian B. Lawyer, NJ
“I had out of control blood sugar and couldn't stop my cravings for bad foods. Dr. Robert gave me a realistic diet I could follow along with a few supplements to help my body. Now my blood sugar is perfect and my food cravings are gone. I also lost some weight.”
-Sheila T, Nurse, NJ
“My cholesterol is down below 200. Thanks for your guidance."
“My boyfriend went out and signed me up to see Dr. Robert, knowing how debilitating my depression had become. I was skeptical, because anything I’d ever tried in the past that promised relief never worked.
I was really surprised at what Dr. Robert told me. I had no idea the negative effects my habits were having. I couldn’t believe that in just one week I was feeling so much better!"

What is Colitis?
Your colon is a long muscular tube that literally pushes undigested food down so you can eventually have a bowel movement; when your colon becomes inflamed this situation is known as Colitis. There are different types of colitis and the article below gives a general overview.
What are some holistic views as to the causes of Colitis?
Inflammation of the colon is what determines colitis but the causes of that inflammation can come from a wide range of factors. Colitis causes can range from illnesses and infections, such as viruses and bacteria, to some sort of ‘mechanical’ impairment of the colon (hernia, etc). Just as particular symptoms of colitis can be different from person to person, the causes of colitis can be just as varied.
Some of the causes of colitis are:
- Antibiotic use. While antibiotics can kill the bad bacteria in your body they also kill the beneficial bacteria (probiotics) which keep the colon functioning properly.
- Viruses and bacteria can inhibit the digestive system and cause havoc which can lead to inflammation of the colon, giving you colitis symptoms.
- Loss of blood supply or lack of blood flow to the colon. Blood is the giver of life, without it our bodies can’t function properly…especially our digestive system. A lack of blood can cause colitis to occur.
- Consuming foods that can cause the colon to become inflamed.
- Side effects from certain medication.
- Vitamin and mineral deficiencies that can cause the colon to be more susceptible to inflammation.
- Improper digestion leading to undigested foods that may cause colitis.
- Autoimmune problems where the immune system attacks the body’s tissues.
The above are only some of the reasons that colitis can occur. Colitis can occur for a number of issues and holistic, naturopathic doctors such as I are highly skilled at seeking the issues that are contributing and leading to your colitis and can provide you with excellent natural colitis treatment options.
Colitis symptoms-When a chill is not just a chill
In the case of colitis, IBS, and digestive disorders in general, the symptoms of one problem may mimic the symptoms of another. They often overlap and this is why digestive problems are the most incorrectly diagnosed by medical professionals. Below is a list of colitis symptoms.
- Abdominal bloating.
- Abdominal pain that is difficult to relieve.
- Bloody stools.
- Painful cramping.
- Increased uncomfortable intestinal gas
- Fever and chills
What are some holistic Colitis treatments and remedies?
As with any disease or disorder, it is important to determine what you have and why you have it. In the case of colitis, while injury can cause stresses and physical trauma, our lifestyle and diet often are some of the biggest culprits.
I will not only find the root cause of your colitis, but my treatment will include a individualized therapeutic diet, to not only battle the present state of your colitis but help you maintain a healthy digestive system so this and many other digestive problems cannot flourish.
My colitis treatments may include:
- The core of colitis remedies and treatment such as with any digestive disorder is diet. Avoiding ‘trigger foods’ that cause inflammation and irritation to your colon leading to flare up of colitis. We are what we eat and our diet is what we live and maintain life with. It only makes sense that your colon is greatly impacted by what goes through it daily.
- Supplementation to rebalance your digestive system and reduce the inflammation that leads to your colitis is a natural treatment that pays dividends. Natural anti-inflammatories, eliminating nutrient deficiencies, optimizing digestive function can all make an astounding improvement in your colitis. When you have properly selected supplements in correct doses they have little to no toxicity and side effects.
Fortunately for those suffering from colitis symptoms there are surefire ways to get the relief you need using safe natural treatments.
