Lifestyle Medicine Matters

Lifestyle medicine is what my focus is going to be in 2018. When I was in medical School I didn’t receive any training in lifestyle assessment and change. I would talk about risk factors for disease, but never had the time or expertise to provide clear guidance on how to effectively reduce  the risk I so freely talked about. This was a missed an opportunity and the reason I now focus on personalized lifestyle assessment and coaching.

My focus for 2018 is to support individuals to make huge strides in their health outcomes with a new model of lifestyle coaching.

So many of our health problems can be greatly resolved simply by deciding what to eat, how to manage stress, how to improve sleep quality and how to move our bodies (to name a few), This is the core of lifestyle medicine. Hippocrates, The father of modern medicine said, ‘Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.’

My vision for my professional work has been “to change the focus of healthcare to creating health” and the truth us, this will  result in lower costs, improved outcomes and enhanced well-being. It’s all about lifestyle. This includes what we eat, how we move, the quality of our sleep, hoe we manage stress, our support systems and

Simply knowing that one has an increased disease risk is not enough to change behavior. Recent research suggests that it is not. Though knowledge may be power, it often takes more than awareness of risk for us to make meaningful lifestyle changes.

I love to create tailored lifestyle prescriptions that are personalized for each client.

I am now doing private  phone sessions to help you set your lifestyle plan. CLICK HERE to book a session and set YOUR lifestyle plan for 2018.

Vitamin D Series PART 2 – Vitamin D and Your Health

vitamin d 3d illustration on white glossy surface

Vitamin D insufficiencies are estimated to affect over one billion people worldwide. The Third National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES III) data showed a significant increase in vitamin D insufficiency in the USA over the last 30 years, with over 77% of Americans considered vitamin D insufficient.

The alarming rates of insufficiency and the vast metabolic properties of vitamin D have led researchers to examine the influence of vitamin D on disease prevention.

The consequences of low 25(OH)D status include increased risk of various chronic diseases, ranging from hypertension to diabetes to cancer.

The safest and most economical way to ensure adequate vitamin D status is to use oral dosing of native vitamin D. (Both daily and intermittent regimens work well.) Serum 25(OH)D can be expected to rise by about 1 ng/mL (2.5 nmol/L) for every 100 IU of additional vitamin D each day. Recent data indicate that cholecalciferol (vitamin D(3)) is substantially more potent than ergocalciferol (vitamin D(2)) and that the safe upper intake level for vitamin D(3) is 10,000 IU/d.

What is the Ideal level of Vitamin D?

The Vitamin D Council recommends that adults take 5,000 IU/day of vitamin D supplement in order to reach and stay at .50 ng/ml

The Endocrine Society recommends taking a vitamin D supplement of around 2,000 IU/day to reach and stay above a level of  30 ng/ml. This is what the Endocrine Society recommends as the ideal level to aim for.

The Food and Nutrition Board recommends 600 IU/day of vitamin D supplement because they believe 20 ng/ml is the ideal level to aim for.
