A Message From Dr. Luther

I was trained as a physician to evaluate each patient to find the medical problems they may have. At some point in my practice, I realized the problems I was trained to find had treatments that were based in pills. I also learned that these pills given to treat problems like diabetes, cholesterol and high blood pressure did NOT provide a cure, but simply a way to treat and control the abnormal numbers. Thus, a patient may have better lab results or blood pressure readings, but they are not necessarily any healthier or happier.

In addressing my own blood pressure, sugar, and cholesterol, I learned that I could actually live healthier and happier by making a few simple adjustments in my life. The answer: Eating better quality foods and exercising in a way to stimulate my body to be more functional for everyday life. Also, when I consistently ate healthy and exercised functionally, my lab results and blood pressure readings also improved.
