Frequently Asked Questions

How do I control stress-induced weight gain?

Under stress, you may find it harder to eat healthy regularly. Also, during times of particularly high stress, you may eat to fulfil emotional needs — sometimes called stress eating or emotional eating. You may also especially be likely to eat high-calorie foods during times of stress, even when you're not hungry. 

What is Lifestyle Medicine?

Lifestyle Medicine is the use of whole food, plant-predominant dietary lifestyle, regular physical activity, restorative sleep, stress management, avoidance of risky substances and positive social connection as a primary therapeutic modality for the treatment and reversal of chronic disease. It is the fastest-growing field of medicine globally and holds the promise for true health reform as it addresses the root cause of chronic illness. 

What is unique about Family Medicine?

Family medicine’s signature attribute is grounded in an ongoing personal patient-physician relationship. Whereas other specialties are limited to a particular organ system, technology, disease, age or sex, family medicine integrates care for each person. Family medicine physicians' unique contributions to health care access stem from the breadth of their training and adaptability of their work, combined with a sense of social responsibility. Patients value a physician who listens to them, who takes time to explain things to them, and who can effectively coordinate and integrate their care.
