Lifestyle Medicine

Lifestyle medicine is a comprehensive way to prevent, treat, and cure.

The American College of Lifestyle Medicine defines Lifestyle Medicine as the use of evidence-based lifestyle therapeutic intervention, including a whole-food, plan-predominant eating pattern, regular physical activity, restorative sleep, stress management, avoidance of risky substances, and positive social connection, as a primary modality, delivered by clinicians trained and certified in this specialty, to prevent, treat, and often reverse chronic disease.

About 700,000 of us will die of heart disease every year; most of which is preventable provided we become proactive patients.   But you do need to know that for most “heart patients”, dying does not come quickly, like a dart falling from the sky, fatally nailing you, as you clutch your chest, your friends desperately tapping 9-1-1 on their […]

Infusions & Supplements to Maximize Your Surgical Success

If you’ve ever undergone surgery, either “emergency” (like “we need to remove your appendix
NOW”) or “elective” (a strange term basically meaning “you can put your surgery off until it’s

undergo “surgical clearance.”
