Bear’s earliest training comes from his Grandfather, a full- blooded Anishanabe Elder, who taught Bear the ways of Native Wisdom. Starting at the age of two, Bear’s Grandfather showed him the ways of the plants, herbs, stones and all traditional wisdom.
Bear has been a Holistic Practitioner for over twenty years, combining training and experience from all over the world. He has studied extensively all areas of Naturopathic Medicines, including Homeopathy, Herbal Medicine and Clinical Nutrition.
Bear has specialized in Bio Energetic Testing, a form of Electro Diagnosis, which utilizes a computer to evaluate 30 different systems of the body and is capable of testing over 13,000 bits of information of the body. He was involved in the Clinical Research on this testing device at Walter Reed Hospital in Washington, D.C. with Dr. Wayne Jonas of N.I.H.
Having practiced with some of the top M.D. / D.C. across the U.S. such as Dr. Roy Kerry of the University of Pittsburgh, Bear has consulted with over 50,000 patients, including many top athletes and celebrities. Bear has always considered his patients to be his greatest teachers.
In 1996, Bear founded Earth Medicine Institute, teaching doctors and lay people in the US and around the world. Bear established teachings ranging from Cellular Biology, the eight systems of the body, to Medical Anthropology.
In addition to Bear’s wealth of knowledge in Alternative Medicine, he offers a heartfelt concern for his clients’ whole being, assisting in their growth, physically but also emotionally, mentally and, of course, spiritually.
