We combine expertise in functional and allopathic medicine with integrative health coaching to give you the support you need to regain the vitality and energy you have been missing.
In our world of Too Many Choices, Too Much Information, and Too Many Experts with Different Opinions, a return to the basics is a good idea. My focus is on improving HEALTHSPAN- improving wellness using all available resources.
In past decades, we have seen lifespan improve, unfortunately, recent studies show that our current trend is that our children will be be less healthy than previous generations. Many studies point to lifestyle factors including diet, exercise, environment and stress to contribute to this.

That is why I am happy to offer Prolon for my patients. The 5-Day Fasting Mimicking Diet developed by Dr. Valter Longo and his team at USC provides an easy to follow jump start to healthier eating. All food is included making it simple to follow.
Dr Valter Longo’s Fasting Mimicking Diet (Prolon) is an important adjunct to this approach. Dr Longo is a longevity researcher at the University of Southern California (USC). He and his team have conducted NIH funded research and developed a Five Day Fasting mimicking program that is FDA approved to support Longevity.
This may sound contradictory= I said lifespan is not the point- but, research demonstrates it is quality years that are enhanced.

Water/juice fasts can support autophagy, but may also result in loss of lean muscle mass, never a good thing, and can be especially harmful after age 50.
It is important to establish overall health baseline, not everyone should do the Prolon Program. The clinical evaluation will include some basic lab tests.
Prolon is easy to follow- there are no decisions to make; it is dairy and gluten free, and is not suitable for people with some food sensitivities.
The body does many things to improve health following the fasting mimicking diet. Dr Longo and Dr Rhonda Patrick discuss the science.
