My Approach

I employ a Whole Heart Health approach for treating all my patients. This means treating the patient as well as the disease. It includes Cardiology and Lifestyle Medicine.

I strongly advocate lifestyle interventions as part of treating and preventing heart disease. This is based on evidence-based studies showing reversal of diabetes, improvements in blood pressure and cholesterol levels, stress reduction and recovery, sleep improvements that reduce risk of heart disease, heart attacks and strokes. 80% of chronic diseases are caused by lifestyle factors – all are potentially preventable and reversible, by modifying behaviors. Changing your lifestyle can save your life.

I am a board-certified Lifestyle Medicine Physician with an interest in this area for almost 10 years.

Lifestyle medicine is evidence based medical specialty that prevents, treats, and reverses chronic diseases such as those that lead to heart attacks, strokes, cancer, and premature death.

My interest in this area stems from the reality that stents or surgery alone do not cure heart disease. Medications help to lower risk but do not address lifestyle behaviors nor do they treat sleep, stress, social connection, or physical inactivity.

Making The Change

There is powerful medical data to show that changing human behavior can change heart disease risks and outcomes. Having a burning desire to improve your health is the starting step. Otherwise, you must accept the consequences of not doing anything for your health and the risks of premature death and illness that may bring.
