Lifestyle

We help patients further optimize their health by incorporating small improvements to their lifestyles that add up to big changes over time.

Lifestyle factors we may address include:

  • sleep
  • spending time in nature
  • social interactions
  • supplements
  • movement
  • self care

Our recommendations are all evidence based and have proven effectiveness. As with our nutrition philosophy, we don’t expect patients to drastically overhaul their lifestyles overnight but rather gradually work toward improvements that will be sustainable.

Mindset

“You cannot solve a problem with the same mind that created it.” ~ Albert Einstein

Eastern medicine is based on the fact that we are holistic beings: our mind and body are not separate. The health of the mind affects the body, and the health of the body affects the mind. Therefore, to make any sort of meaningful health change, we need to address mindset. There is not a one-size-fits-all approach to changing mindset. Techniques we may teach include:

  • meditation
  • mindfulness
  • gratitude
  • reframing
  • changing perspective
