Together they are dedicated to the crusade of bringing healthy lifestyle awareness and tools to practitioners of traditional medicine and individuals who suffer from preventable diseases like Type 2 diabetes, heart disease and obesity. We look forward to working together to continue providing hope and healing to all people who suffer from chronic conditions that evidence shows are preventable, treatable and, often, even reversible through lifestyle medicine.”
