Our goal is to prevent the complications associated with metabolic syndrome, diabetes, and obesity by helping you address your health conditions through lifestyle modifications and medications, and ultimately prevent the progression of overweight into obesity within our population.
Why are we different?
As a member of CCTN, we consider nutritional interventions as a key element to success in helping put metabolic disease into remission. The rates of nutritional diseases, including fatty liver, obesity, type 2 diabetes, and metabolic syndrome have increased since the low-fat dietary guidelines were issued in the 1980s in North America. These diseases have complications such as kidney failure, heart disease, stroke, limb amputations and vision impairment to name a few, and have a negative impact on the quality of life of patients. Despite Canadians following a low-fat diet since the recommendation in the 1980s, these diseases continue to rise.
We have seen patients, friends, and family members bring these diseases into remission by focussing on a whole foods approach, with decreasing processed foods and carbohydrates, and increasing the amount of natural fats in the diet using an evidence-based approach.
We are looking forward to supporting your on your journey to wellness and improved health!
