Comprehensive Personalized Approach

Reverse chronic diseases like Obesity and Diabetes with direct remote medical supervision and coaching for sustainable results

 

Hey there! Several years ago, as a board certified internal medicine doctor myself, I followed the conventional medical advice of what a healthy lifestyle is supposed to be. I ended up overweight, with high blood pressure and pre-diabetes. It wasn't until I was willing to question everything I learned and search for the truth that I was able to reclaim my health. Now I want to be your doctor and health coach so you can reclaim your health.

The most important lesson from the COVID-19 pandemic

If you learn one thing from the COVID-19 pandemic, it is that your metabolic health determines how you’ll do if you get infected.  Clinical observation has shown that the main predictor of poor outcome is metabolic syndrome.  Metabolic syndrome is a cluster of conditions that include increased blood pressure, high blood sugar, excess body fat around the waist, and abnormal cholesterol or triglyceride levels. Having one or more of the conditions of metabolic syndrome is known to increase your risk of Diabetes, heart disease and stroke. The bad news is that an estimate of 82% of the US population is metabolically unhealthy, with > 70% overweight or obese and > 50% with pre-diabetes or diabetes. The silver lining in this information is that although we can't control if or when we get infected, it's 100% under our control to be in the best shape possible to fight it off.

 

Poor metabolic heath is the root cause of most chronic diseases. What you put in your mouth over the years dictates how you live and die. Obesity, Diabetes, heart disease, cancer, high blood pressure, fatty liver disease, autoimmune diseases, mental health, etc, with all the complications that come with them, all have the same denominator; poor nutrition. So, the treatment is straight forward. Fix your nutrition and better health will follow. Medications and supplements will not fix it. Going to the gym will not fix it. Wishful thinking will not fix it. The solution is simple, but it's not easy. My purpose in doing this is to coach you and assist you in your journey back to health and help you reclaim your life.
