Dr. Christensen has been an active member of the Weston A. Price Foundation and is a strong advocate of living close to the earth and having a diet focused on whole natural foods. He views herbs as medicines created by nature with all of the active ingredients, co-factors, buffers, and synergistic phytochemicals that are balanced perfectly both chemically and energetically for the use of those who share this planet.
He has run marathons, participated in century bike rides, triathlons, and was once an avid rock climber. Dr. Christensen is passionate about permaculture and organic gardening, cooking, woodcarving, kayaking, backpacking and music (playing piano, guitar, harp, clarinet, various flutes and any other instrument he can get his hands on).
