Lifestyle medicine is a practical, scientific and personal 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 (amongst others).
You can call it science-lead, with a practical human approach. We work with integrated – not separate – disciplines. You come first and your lab-results follow, not visa-versa.This practice is about:
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 of 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 the western lifestyle is such a big contributor to our chronic disease epidemic, is lifestyle not the logical place to start?
One could say that our modern lifestyle has become an infectious agent.
Life is a stream of events, some of which will throw us off course. Change is constant and it requires adaptability. When we exhaust our recovery capacity, that is when it happens, that is when we start feeling depleted and our health cascades negatively in response.
A key underlying principle to recognize here is impermanence of state. If we can accept the impermanence of any state as a given, we can embrace the value of strengthening our recovery capacity, because it becomes vital. Resilience is essentially the defining factor of our health.
This is the essence of my practice, ‘Resiliendo’. I’ll teach you how to grow your resilience and regain/improve your health using evidence-based tools and therapies from the sciences of Clinical Psychoneuroimmunology and Orthomolecular Medicine.
I often get asked which 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:
The situation usually involves a “chronic” state of imbalance (of varying duration and severity) and unsuccessful attempts at finding a sustainable long-term strategy/solution.
Recognizing the need for change is what moves someone to seek help.
Ultimately, it is the desire to regain part of the (quality-of-) life lost, such as energy, mental/emotional state, mobility or social-connection).
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 change cease to exist.
Bringing some degree of change to the undesirable state; that 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."
I believe in what Lucille does and how this could benefit everyone!"
