Our passion is teaching our patients about the central importance of proper diet and lifestyle (especially walking) to keep the blood sugar stable. In this way, patients can learn to control weight as well as manage or help treat type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, migraines and other headaches, asthma, anxiety and depression, and many other conditions, and to prevent long-term complications such as heart disease, stroke, and many others. We prescribe medications for these conditions when needed, but we have a strong focus on helping our patients learn how to achieve their best possible personal health, while minimizing the need for medications.
