The Focus of My Practice
What I do in my practice of medicine is to educate and exhort my patients is to do everything – everyday – to keep the body healthy. The Paradigm Shift for Health program was developed to do more than educate and exhort – it adds an additional component of hands on experience to help people make the shift. There are many people in the community (health coaches, psychologists, counselors, therapists, cooks, etc.) who have skills to help people shift to healthy behaviors and that is part of Paradigm Shift for Health.
To fulfill the educational component of the Paradigm Shift for Health program, PSFH classes are offered throughout the year and are included in the Direct Primary Care (DPC) membership. I will be happy if the education and hands-on experience provided in my classes, together with the development of a support system, gets people to change and improve their life.
PSFH classes cover a variety of topics such as:
- Cardiovascular Disease
- Behavioral Changes to Avoid Cancer
- Benefits of an Ideal Body Weight
- The Type 2 Diabetes Epidemic
You can attend all or only those classes that interest you.
