DR. OSKIN’S STORY
At age 15 I had a baseball injury breaking two bones in my lower leg leading to six surgeries in a week and 3 titanium screws. What was supposed to be 6 weeks in a cast and crutches turned into 5 months. This injury led to resentment, pain (both physically and mentally), and weight gain. I wandered down a destructive path until I had gained over 70 pounds and weighed a whopping 220 pounds in my early twenties. By that point, I had become pre-diabetic.
This was frightening to me because many of my family members have suffered from type-2 diabetes. Three out of four of my grandparents, my dad, my aunts and uncles, and two of my cousins (at young ages) have all suffered from diabetes. I’ve seen family members develop kidney failure requiring ongoing dialysis treatments, amputations, dementia, and lives ending too soon, without enjoying the quality of life in their elder years.
Sigh! So, there I was in my early twenties with pre-diabetes staring down a scary road ahead if I didn’t start making changes. Did I want to take that road, or did I want to choose the road less traveled? I’ve seen the outcome of the first road: I’ve seen first-hand the devastation of my family members who were told by their well-intentioned doctors that they just needed to take a medication. One drug led to two, and two to three, and three to four….
I grew frustrated with seeing medical errors and drug side effects ravage my family. My Dad was accidentally prescribed two statin medications simultaneously for his high cholesterol which caused him months of fatigue and joint pain. My deceased uncle had uncontrolled diabetes and high blood pressure that continuously led him to the emergency room. He was on five blood pressure medications and three diabetes medications when he called me out of desperation for help. After reviewing his lengthy medication list (20 drugs!), I discovered that he had been taking a steroid for 10 years that was started after he had bowel surgery, which was only meant to be taken for three months. And one of its side effects is to cause diabetes and high blood pressure.
Unfortunately, it was too late to reverse the damage to his body. He had developed irreversible kidney failure and was disabled due to the nerve damage in his fingers that made them so numb that he couldn’t do simple tasks like buttoning his shirt or holding a pen. My uncle’s doctors meant well, and in their seven-minute office visits, they had done the best they could do in this broken system to give him band-aid drug after band-aid drug. But those band-aids didn’t fix the underlying cause of his health problems and eventually, the damage led him to the grave too soon.
These deeply personal and infuriating experiences led me to take a different road: The road to restoring my own health problems with proven lifestyle changes and Homœopathy. It is more than 13 years later, and I haven’t been pre-diabetic since.
I’m also in the best shape of my life.
I can do and enjoy things that I couldn’t enjoy in my early 20s when I was in such bad health. My struggles and journey with my own health and my frustrations with the failure of the conventional medical system to help my family are what fueled me to change my career path and go to medical school. But I knew that I couldn’t go to conventional medical school because I had experienced the dysfunctional system firsthand with my own family. That’s when I found out about naturopathic medicine and decided to become a naturopathic physician.
After graduating with High Honors from the Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine (SCNM) in Tempe, Arizona, I completed a one-year residency in a general family practice and then a second-year specialty residency with a focus in Homœopathy at the Southwest Naturopathic Medical Center in Scottsdale, Arizona.
In addition to my extremely personal passion for helping adults reverse chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease, it was during my residency training that I also connected to a profound desire to help children. I remember helping several children with chronic recurrent ear infections that resolved completely with homœopathic treatment. Helping those kiddos inspired me to focus a portion of my practice on pediatrics because it was so much fun to help kids get healthy.
Along this journey, I became nationally regarded as a speaker and published author for my expertise in helping families overcome challenges associated with child developmental disorders including Autism, Asperger’s, ADD/ADHD, Cerebral Palsy, PANDAS, Sensory Processing Disorder, and tic disorders.
