We established The Healing Med because we strongly advocate a lifestyle that promotes healthy weight, a nutritious diet, and daily exercise to help restore energy levels. One of our biggest areas of focus is weight gain, which we believe is caused by multiple factors such as an individual’s environment, stress or anxiety, and lack of sleep, perhaps due to obstructive sleep apnea. Our approach is holistic, as we offer a balanced combination of guided meditation and medical treatment.
Strong Focus on Obesity
Obesity can trigger a variety of medical conditions, including but not limited to:
- Back Pain
- Elevated (High) Cholesterol
- Heart Disease
- Hypertension (High Blood Pressure)
- Obstructive Sleep Apnea
- Type 2 Diabetes
- Chronic Fatigue
Clinical research and observational studies have shown that a 5% to 10% weight loss can significantly improve health conditions associated with obesity. We focus not just on the treatment of these chronic medical conditions, but also on prevention by alleviating risk factors and recommending lifestyle changes through a personalized wellness program.
