I am Dr Kathy, a wife, mother of four and an internal medicine physician. I have always been fascinated by the human body and how marvelously it works. This fascination led me to medical school where I learnt not only the body’s physiology but its pathology and related pharmacology. As I treated patients day in and day out with chronic diseases I realized that few where being cured of their ailments. They continued to be sick with an ever growing list of prescription medications.
I myself struggled with various ailments which included obesity, migraines, joint aches and fatigue. Despite my intense medical training I was not able to cure myself.
A few years into my practice I was invited by a colleague and friend to embark on a total lifestyle change. This involved a dietary overhaul moving from a very processed vegetarian diet to a plant based unprocessed fare. In just 30 days I could tell that I was no longer the same. I traded all my processed chips, soda, cookies, candy, fries, fast foods, breads and pastas for a new bill of health. I was eating fruits, vegetable, nuts, grains and seeds in their natural state with minimal processing and I felt more alive than ever before. I lost 20 pounds, the migraines went away, I had loads of energy and felt great.
Since than I have paid keen attention to positive lifestyle changes and how they maintain health. I have shared this information with my patients and over and over again seen marvelous improvements in their physical exam, lab results and overall well being.
The truth is positive lifestyle changes practiced every day are more powerful than any prescription pill to maintain health.
Join me on this journey of making daily positive lifestyle choices. And lets not leave our children behind. As our kids learn now the value of making better health choices the cycle of chronic disease in each family will be broken.
Here’s to your health and wellness. Prepare to be amazed!
