LAST LEG OF THE ACADEMIC JOURNEY: BOARD CERTIFICATION IN LIFESTYE MEDICINE
You’ve seen from reading my story that I love to learn anything and everything that can help my patients and clients be healthier and happier. Lifestyle Medicine is the new medical specialty that focuses on diet and lifestyle as a way to prevent, treat, and reverse chronic conditions before writing prescriptions for medications. I now feel that I have the best combination of education and training to share with my clients and patients. As a surgeon, I know when a lifesaving intervention is required. As a coach, I have the skills to help you help yourself. As a Lifestyle Medicine Physician, I am excited to show you how many different lifestyle factors, beyond just your diet, can contribute to your long-term health.
I now have a private practice with phone sessions that has been incredibly life changing for my clients. I don’t think people realize how good you can feel when you change your diet to more whole plant foods. Not only does weight, blood pressure, glucose and cholesterol normalize and become ideal, but you have more energy, less aches and pains, less depression, and less inertia. We can probably thank our many and varied gut microbes for most of this; Luckily, we can just repay them in food!
I invite you to come learn with me. Learn which foods give you energy and which take energy away. Learn how to love yourself more by giving yourself the healthiest food which will lead to the healthiest and longest life. Learn how to forgive yourself, as I did, for making mistakes along the way, as we all do. And allow yourself the opportunity to get off the medications you are on to treat diseases that need never burden you. This is the only diet proven to reverse our #1 killer, heart disease. It is the same diet that reverses type 2 diabetes. The same diet that reduces your risk of cancer, arthritis, Alzheimer’s, cataracts and so many other debilitating diseases.
We were designed to enjoy eating all the beautiful, colorful foods that surround us. It is my joy and my passion to inspire you and guide you to your optimal health and wellbeing.
