One year into the Corona Pandemic

2021-02-16T13:13:07+00:00

One year ago, I issued an open letter about The Wellness Clinic’s advancement of the principles of Lifestyle Medicine and how we are successfully using Lifestyle Medicine  to prevent and reverse chronic disease.  This was exactly 2 weeks before the Coronavirus infected the Western World and changed our lives in ways we didn’t think possible.

Breaking Through the Plateau

2021-01-03T12:31:28+00:00

Samuel came into my office yesterday for his initial intake.  He lost a lot of weight, some came back.  He’s been trying everything he can think of to reverse the trend, but now he’s just stuck at the same.  I’ve see this story before.  Another version - Rachel, a longtime client of mine, has lost [...]

Putting Heart Disease in Reverse

2020-11-15T21:22:40+00:00

Coronary artery disease can be reversed. True of False? If you ask most doctors, including cardiologist, you probably will receive a foggy kind of answer.  You might hear “FALSE!”  If this is the answer you are hearing from a doctor, it’s unfortunate. The correct answer is TRUE - Coronary artery disease can be reversed. There are [...]

What Will Your “New Normal” Be?

2020-05-19T12:07:41+00:00

It’s been a long 2 months, but we are slowly coming out of the Covid-19 lock down.  Life is slowly getting back to a "new normal."  While we have been vigilant about not getting the Covid-19 virus, in doing so, many of us have also been leading a sedentary life.  This may also include eating [...]

Increasing the Odds

2019-08-29T10:40:50+00:00

We offer free consultations to people interested in coming into any of our programs. Free—why?  Because there is something that I must let people know before they get started.  THERE IS NO EASY PATH TO GOOD HEALTH.  Weight to lose, blood pressure to lower, diabetes or pre-diabetes to reverse or cholesterol to lower-- it’s all possible.

It’s Over—Now What?

2018-10-02T07:31:39+00:00

Our Succahs are down and the Yomim Tovim are now behind us.  Hopefully, we had a lot of enjoyable, quality time with our families.  Undoubtedly, we also took liberties with the amount and types of food we consumed.  And we did this at a time when we are less active than usual.  Obviously, that isn’t [...]

2017-05-17T11:18:47+00:00

The old saying goes, “You are what you eat”.  We know that the way we eat has a pronounced effect on our health, weight, and ability to fight off disease. Recently we even discovered that what we eat can have a marked effect on our mental health.  The term “the way we eat”, refers to [...]
