This approach was highlighted in 2016 when he served as the national spokesperson for the NET Fusion Initiative sponsored by Novartis Pharmaceutical; which educated those suffering from neuroendocrine tumors (NET) and carcinoid syndrome.
Dr. Mike has appeared as an expert guest on many national radio and television programs; including The Doctors, and Fox National News; where he serves as a national contributor. He has taught and explored the relationship between food and health through international workshops, seminars, lectures and cooking demonstrations. He currently writes a regular column for Psychology Today and has authored several books; Eating Well; Living Better: A Grassroots Gourmet Guide to Good Health and Great Food (Littlefield and Roman, 2012) and The Fallacy of The Calorie: Why The Modern Western Diet is Killing Us and How to Stop It (Koehler Books, 2014). Ancient Eats: The Greeks and Vikings; Koehler Books, October 2016) is his latest endeavor.
He spends his free time between wandering the beautiful Montana mountains and the Florida Gulf; where he passively pursues his dream of a simple, pirate’s life.
