“Here’s to good health practices and how I came to develop mine: I knew I could not continue self-medicating and living my life as a significantly heavy person but I also didn’t have the tools to manage the road blocks I continuously ran into, trying to live healthier, either. When I came upon The China Study, I knew I found a terrific tool. This led me to Forks Over Knives and other documentaries teaching me how to switch to a plant-based diet. Weight started coming off and I felt an amazing energy that sustained me all day as an elementary teacher, which I had not felt since college. As in all journeys, plateaus come and even some discouragement. I felt that plant based wasn’t working as well for me anymore. But I still felt great, so I decided to research more and find more tools. Fine-tuning my lifestyle with the Chawla’s was the exact tool I needed. Helping me see more consistently health for the whole individual as well as being Whole Foods plant based does make a significant difference, breaking plateaus and yielding wonderful results! 140 pounds lighter and with better blood work results, I couldn’t be more grateful for such tools, people, and doctors who want our success in this uphill journey. Grit and grace wins the race! “
“What may seem impossible is entirely possible. Entrusting my health and life to the brilliant Doctors of Lifestyle Docs has changed my life forever. They managed to save my life. I am optimistic to see the many wonders they can do for others.”
“After my husband reversed his ulcerative colitis working with Lifestyle Docs, I decided to do an immersion program. Although my reasons were not an autoimmune disease, they were severely disrupting my life (panic attacks, sleep disorder, adult acne, depression, unbearable menstrual cycles). I learned so much science about food & exercise, but especially the mental component of healing. I am in love with the food I eat. I am sleeping at night now, and have endless energy to exercise and move my body. I have found connection to myself and others which bring me much joy. My mental toolbox is full of wonderful tools to relieve stress and bring some peace throughout each day. I’m so thankful for this program, Dr. B and Dr. M Chawla”
