June 16, 2016


Ricardo Miranda, L.Ac., an integrative medicine practitioner that incorporates functional medicine, Chinese medicine (acupuncture and herbs) and genetics joins eHealth Radio and the General Health and Healthcare Channels. He specializes in MTHFR and disease prevention through genetics. Miranda's groundbreaking work in genetics and MTHFR has elevated his status to a world renowned practitioner changing our entire approach to modern science.


Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels & guest Ricardo Miranda discuss the following:

  • What is MTHFR and where can people find out more about MTHFR?
  • What are some chronic conditions that are controlled by genes?
  • How do mutations on genes leave the body susceptible to these chronic conditions?
  • How does a DNA test help and where can they get it done?
  • If mutations are identified by a DNA test what does acupuncture do to help the body?


Summary: It is important for patients to seek the help of a health care practitioner that is well trained in MTHFR and methylation. Genetics is a very complex field and it can get very complicated very fast.


Ricardo Miranda holds a Master’s degree in Traditional Oriental Medicine and a specialization in Acupuncture Orthopedics from the American Acupuncture Academy. Ricardo brings the latest and best advances in both Eastern and Western medicine by incorporating Genetics, Epigenetics and Methylation Imbalance treatments.

Other tests may include adrenal stress tests, pH level check ups, computerized body fat analysis and metabolic assessment among other personalized screenings.


Ricardo believes that a comprehensive look at a patient’s health including blood work and genetic screening for mutations such as (COMT, MAOA, MTHFR, MTRR, CBS, DAO, etc.) combined with the ancient knowledge of pulse diagnosis is the best approach to optimizing one’s health. Ricardo provides nutritional guidance to his patients based on a combination of Western and Chinese medicine nutritional protocols, pulse diagnosis and genetic findings. All of this speaks to his intense desire to provide the best treatments to his patients.

Is Acupuncture right for you with Dr. Dominique Vonador

December 28, 2014


Dr. Dominique Vonador, a Board Certified Acupuncture Physician of Acupuncture and Herbal Solutions, that is currently treating patients for many health related conditions at Natural Healing Arts Medical Center joins eHealth Radio and the Acupuncture & General Health Channels.


Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels and guest Dr. Dominique Vonador discuss the following:

  • How did you get into the field of Acupuncture?
  • Can you tell me and our listeners what Acupuncture really is?
  • What are some of the common ailments that you see today?
  • In today’s view on medicine, do you see a lot of resistance in the acceptance of Acupuncture?
  • Is Acupuncture safe and are there any side effects?


Duration: 7:32


Dr. Dominique Vonador, DOM, LAc is a NCCAOM Board Certified Acupuncture Physician, graduating from East West College of Natural Medicine in Sarasota, FL. She is a self-motivated and multi-tasked Master Degreed Acupuncture Professional with extensive applied medical training and industry exposure in Traditional Chinese Medical Theory. She has demonstrated a history of successful patient care and treatment administration while formulating pragmatic and effective solutions in critical and fast paced environments.


Dr. Vonador likes to think of herself as being athletic; waking at 5:30 in the morning to run 2 miles and then end with a little weight lifting is an average Monday morning for her. She ran track and field in college at Florida State University, graduating with her Bachelor's degree in Biology. While working at the local hospital, she became distraught at the level of care the patients received, with medication allotments being the major course of treatment. From then on she knew there had to be an adjunctive therapy treatment option that was less painful, easy for the patient, but very efficient. Acupuncture proved to be the answer. Now, here she is 5 years later, continuously making a difference in the community with Oriental Medicine.


Dr. Vonador's husband of 4 years and their 3 year old son are her main driving force with God as the head. Without any of them, she does not believe she would be the woman she is today.
