Half of our patients come to us in good health. They seek our help to enhance their vitality as they age. Aging is accompanied by deterioration on multiple fronts, including atrophy (shrinkage) of the brain, heart, and muscles; loss of energy, strength, and agility; increased blood sugar, cholesterol, and triglycerides; narrowing of blood vessels; increased risk of cancer; and diminished cognitive function. By improving your metabolic and nutritional state, we can mitigate these common degenerative effects of aging and help keep you healthy and strong.

 

The other half of our patients come to us in poor health. They are tired of physicians who only treat the effects (symptoms) of disease rather than the root causes. In order to recover from their illness as quickly and as safely as possible, they need a physician who can first uncover what got them sick, then help remove the roadblocks that are standing in the way of them getting better. Using the science of metabolic and nutritional medicine, not only can we combat the root causes of disease, we can help maintain your health once it has been recovered.
