After years of working in the ER, I have found that so much disease and suffering could have been prevented.
After years of working in the ER, and being on the front lines of our healthcare system, it has become clear to me that our healthcare system does not prioritize disease prevention.
6 out of 10 Americans has a chronic disease. This includes conditions like type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, heart disease, dementia, strokes, and cancer. But even though 80% of our most common chronic conditions are preventable, (and sometimes even reversible), most of the time, when people see their doctor, they are just offered a prescription to manage their problems.
In our medical system, we don't often talk about and address root causes, and most people are not offered the step by step guidance and support that is necessary to help them prevent and reverse disease.
This is why I created my programs.
Choose the Plan that is Right for You...
Prevent Disease, Lose Weight, Combat Insulin Resistance and Feel Your Best
The 12 Week Journey of Wellness and Weight Loss is a 12 week comprehensive, guided program, with weekly learning and coaching videos, addressing all aspects of your health, including insulin resistance, nutrition, and weight loss, but also stress, sleep, and mental health. This program is designed to help you Prevent (and sometimes Reverse) Prediabetes, Type 2 Diabetes, High Cholesterol, and High Blood Pressure. This program can also reduce your risk for Cancer, Dementia, Non Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease, and Heart Disease, decrease your joint pain, boost your energy, improve your mood, and add healthier and happier years to your life!
Everything You Need to Tackle Insulin Resistance and Lose Weight Permanently
The Weight Loss Toolkit is a self-guided shorter program, with targeted learning and coaching videos that concentrate primarily on insulin resistance, nutrition, and weight loss.
Most weight loss programs just focus on deprivation and counting-- which ends with frustration, failure, and weight regain for most people.
This program is a lifestyle, not a diet, and addresses the root biological, hormonal and emotional causes of weight gain, so you can lose weight and keep it off. This program addresses some of the root causes of weight gain (and many of our most common diseases), such as Insulin Resistance and Inflammation, and provides a clear, step by step roadmap to help you reach your health goals.
“I was blown away. Absolutely blown away."
"My cholesterol dropped from 261 to 152. My bad cholesterol (LDL) dropped from 180 to 82. Even my blood pressure is down. My blood pressure was always around 142/77, but when I just went to the doctor for my physical my pressure was 127/58.
Believe me, I didn’t think any of this was going to be anything. I’m a skeptic. The main difference is that I have more energy. I feel better, I’m not sluggish in the afternoons. Before, I used to need a cup of tea in the afternoons to keep going. Now I don’t need that anymore.
I’m down 23 pounds."
"I pray that your program can reach more people. If they would just take a moment to just listen to the modules, it will change their life forever."
"You don’t realize until you get on the program, that you will feel so much better. I have more energy. I’m sleeping better. During the program, I lost 22 pounds.
I have type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure. My blood pressure is down. My blood sugars are down. I’m proud of myself. It inspires me to keep going. For me it’s not hard. You don’t feel forced.
The first 3 weeks were just eye opening. It’s a mindset, that you are not depriving yourself. It reprograms you.
Most doctors don’t have the time to really connect with their patients to really help their patients make these changes. My doctor has never told me any of this information."
"For a long time, I have thought my diet was good and didn't understand why my weight was so persistent."
"You saw my immediate excitement at your program and it isn't disappointing. The changes I have made seem so insignificant yet, the results are already showing themselves.
I have NEVER lost that much weight in such a short time period and fortunately, I now understand why."
Stunningly Powerful and Firmly Rooted in Evidence Based Science
In contrast to so many of the diets and wellness programs out there, this program is completely based on the latest and best SCIENCE. This program was created by combining the science of Lifestyle Medicine, extensive and comprehensive research, and years of clinical experience.
Forget About Counting Calories and Instead Focus on the Root Causes of Weight Gain (Biological, Hormonal and Emotional)
Our body weight is regulated by a complex balance of hormones, and it is when this system is not working correctly, that we gain weight. These hormones, including Insulin, also are linked to many of our most common diseases-- including heart disease, type 2 diabetes, non alcoholic fatty liver disease, polycystic ovarian disease, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and dementia. This lifestyle plan aims to restore the natural balance of this system, and increase insulin sensitivity, while addressing the mindset issues which often hold us back. There will be NO counting calories, NO counting carbs, and NO shame.
"My wellness and weight loss programs are the culmination of my 15 years of experience of working in the Emergency Room, the science of Lifestyle Medicine, my extensive personal research, my studies at the Institute of Integrative Nutrition, and my training in coaching."
"I created Head Heart Hands, Holistic Wellness and Weight loss to integrate all of this valuable information into a format where it truly can change people’s lives."
