Year after year we see two patterns in patient care:

1) People typically know what to do for their health but do not make choices reflective of that awareness.  They know “what to do” but struggle with “how to do it”.

2) Patients leave the clinic, treatment plan in hand full of hope and somewhere around the 20-day mark, all their best intentions come crashing in and they find themselves in old habits.

Both situations revealing the basic truth – behaviour modifications as simple as they may seem are difficult to implement.

Hence the birth of this podcast with these short and sweet shares focused on the aspects of Lifestyle Medicine -sleep, stress, nutrition, movement, elimination, mindset.

In these podcasts we will:

Answer the question about how to stay on track with your goals.

Support, inspire and motivate you on your journey.

See you in your struggles, affirm you in the challenge of change and reassure you that you are not alone.

Hope you will tune in.
