Lifestyle medicine is a practical, science-based and personalized approach to health. Using the modern medicine approach of Clinical Psychoneuroimmunology to obtain an integrative assessment of your health we treat disease using the nutritional, physical, social and psychological aspects of your life.
This practice is about:
Our objective is to expand your comfort zone:
Many of today’s conventional habits work disrupt our physiological and evolutionary make-up. While societal prevalence may lead us to believe that certain habits are ‘normal’ or good for us, many of them actually wear down our systems, daily. This is where we start.
Small adjustments can lead to big changes. The key is understanding which adjustments will make the biggest difference to your overall well-being.
Chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease, metabolic disease, inflammatory disorders are at epidemic proportions.
The scientific evidence linking processed foods and a sedentary lifestyle to these chronic diseases is overwhelming. And yet, processed foods and a sedentary lifestyle are the norm for a very large part of the western population.
If the research shows that lifestyle is such a big contributor to our chronic disease epidemic, is lifestyle not the logical place to start?
One could say that our lifestyle has become an infectious agent.
In life, we will encounter turns and bumps that throw us off. Whether it is a be an incident or a stream of events, the unforeseen is inevitable.
When this goes on for too long, we start feeling depleted and our health cascades negatively in response.
If we can accept this impermanence of state as a given, if only makes sense to strengthen our recovery – our resilience – as this is ia defining factor of our health.
This is the essence of my practice, ‘Resiliendo’: I’ll teach you how to actively practice resilience to improve your health using evidence-based techniques and therapies from the fields of Orthomolecular therapy and Clinical Psycho-Neuro-Immunology.
People often ask what types of conditions drive people to my practice. My best answer is: chronic imbalance and recognition of the need for change.
People come to me when they:
It usually involves a “chronic” state of imbalance (of varying severity) and unsuccessful atempts to find a sustainable, long-term solution elsewhere.
What do I mean by “chronically unwell?”
When imbalance lasts long enough, chronic ‘unwellness’ becomes the state of being. And like any other, a state of being requires a shift to be able to recover.
Bringing some degree of change to that state. This is the goal.
I can highly recommend this practice to anyone who wants quick results without defaulting to prescription medication.
My doctor still treats my illness, but Lucille supports my well-being. She gives me the tools to avoid triggers. I am spending less on prescriptions, eating well, and am not constipated from pain meds. In fact, I don’t need pain meds. Anyway, it is a path not an easy answer.
This has been a great investment for me. I feel like I am in control of my life once again."
