He embarked on a path that has seen him become a dedicated practitioner in the field, specializing in treating a wide range of conditions, including Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) and dermatological disorders.

Seth’s educational foundation was laid at South West Acupuncture College in Boulder, Colorado, where he received extensive training in acupuncture and Chinese medicine.
