Specialist in Nutritional Medicine

Dr. Ray Strand's Online Medical Practice

I have been involved in a private family practice for over 30 years.  For the past 12 years, I have focused my practice on preventive and nutritional medicine.  During my training at the University of Colorado Medical School, I received very little training in nutrition and absolutely NO training in nutritional supplementation.  My medical school training was disease and drug oriented.  When I graduated with my M. D. degree, I felt I was a “True” healthcare expert.  However, after studying the health benefits of taking nutritional supplements and firmly establishing clinically effective healthy lifestyles during the past 12 years, I realized that I had really been a “Disease Care Expert.”  I had been focused on diagnosing and treating disease.  Even what I referred to as preventive medicine at that time was really no more than early detection of disease.  When I would do a complete physical, I was looking for those silent diseases like high blood pressure, elevated cholesterol, diabetes, or some subtle signs of heart disease.  When I did not find any disease, I would just tell my patients that they were healthy and would not have to see me for another year or two. 

My medical practice has certainly changed. My focus and desire is now on helping those individuals who want to become more proactive in protecting their health or regaining their health.  I have now become that “True Health Care Expert” I have always desired to be.  My research into my cutting-edge approach to nutritional medicine has led to the writing of several best selling books, like What Your Doctor Doesn’t Know About Nutritional Medicine [Thomas Nelson 2002], Death by Prescription [Thomas Nelson 2003], Healthy for Life [Health Concepts 2005], and Living by Design [Health Concepts 2007].  I have lectured on nutritional and preventive medicine across the US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, and Malaysia.  Everywhere I speak people always ask me if I know of any physicians in their area who understands and appreciate the health concepts I share in my books and lectures.  My answer is usually no.  This has led me to develop my “Online” medical practice through this website. 
Benefits of becoming a member of my Online Medical Practice:

My goal in establishing my Online Medical Practice was to be that “True” Healthcare Expert you could trust.  When you finally decide to become more proactive in protecting or regaining your health, you want to be sure that the time, money, and effort you spend is worth while.  This is why I have spent the last 12 years studying and researching the medical literature so that I could share those health concepts that were truly effective.
