Dr. Bee Lo wants to help all of us ditch the internet as a way to self-diagnose common medical conditions, and instead become our own physicians. Dr. Lo is an instructor at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse who has studied family medicine, chiropractic medicine, nutrition, massage, allergy medicine, acupuncture, and so much more. He is a physician who believes in all healing modalities including the use of conventional medicine and alternative healing methods to help his patients overcome their health conditions. Asthma, migraines, joint pain, and other common conditions can be treated and relieved through innovative non-invasive techniques.
