WHAT MY CLIENTS SAY:

Perla Bueno

There came a time when I had to make lifestyle changes to improve my overall health. Dr. Jenn has been my guide and my teacher. I began to see a difference in my heart rate, blood pressure, but even better in my blood work. I have lost over 70 lbs. and my blood pressure medicine and insulin doses decreased by half. My goal is to be off these meds soon.

MEET DR. JENN

I am a pediatric critical care physician and lifestyle medicine specialist.

Over the years more of my patients have had complications as a result of lifestyle choices. Obesity, hypertension, and type 2 diabetes have become common.

I realized that in order to help my patients, I have to help the entire family.  Empowering individuals and families to take control of their health through lifestyle change is my passion.

What Is Lifestyle Medicine?

It’s evidence-based medicine.
It allows your body to protect and heal itself.
Its focus is on six pillars of optimal lifestyle.

Nutrition

The concept of food as medicine.  The goal is to increase the intake of nutrient dense, antioxidant rich foods and decrease or eliminate unhealthy ones with the focus on whole unprocessed predominately plant based foods. 

Stress

Identifying negative stress responses and reducing them as well as developing effective coping techniques improves well-being. Stress-related diseases include impaired immune function, obesity, anxiety, and depression. 

Relationships

Social connection is important for resiliency.  Isolation is associated with poor health. 

Risky Substances

Smoking cessation and decreasing or eliminating consumption of alcohol.

Sleep

Poor sleep hygiene can be linked to hypertension, obesity, poor memory, and even early death.  Identify dietary, environmental, and coping behaviors to improve sleep health.

Exercise

Physical activity is vital to health.  Adults should exercise a minimum of 30 minutes every day. The goal is to incorporate activity into your daily routine.

This is the beginning of your new life. Are you ready?
