The human body can do INCREDIBLE things; however, it needs proper care to perform at its peak. This healthcare practice is focused on helping your body do what it was designed to do - prevent, heal, and thrive - using the basic tools of nutrition and lifestyle. It is evidenced-based, effective, and best of all, natural.

A Focus on Nutrition and Lifestyle
I've chosen to dedicate an entire practice to nutrition and lifestyle because, well, it is just that important. Issues with nutrition and lifestyle are most often at the root of what ails us. Therefore, addressing what we eat and how we live our lives is a very logical approach to achieving health, healing, and disease prevention.
I could go on and on about all of the benefits of eating healthy foods, engaging in physical activity, managing stress, getting a good night's sleep, and spending quality time with friends and family. However, I will give you just an idea of some of the many areas of the body that can benefit from optimizing nutrition and lifestyle:
Longevity and anti-aging
Mood / Energy
Hormone balance / Fertility
Cancer prevention / Support
Although optimizing nutrition and lifestyle is a seemingly simple approach, in reality, it can often be very challenging to implement, especially in the modern world we live in today. This is where having a partner who works with you step by step is key. In this practice, I am not only a physician but I am also a health coach. I work closely with my clients on a long-term basis to ensure they get the care and guidance they need to succeed.
