90% of Risk Factors for Stroke is Preventable through Lifestyle Change

If you're a patient of mine, you've certainly had me ask about your diet, stress levels, physical activity levels and many more factors that contribute to your overall lifestyle picture. It's why we spend one hour with each other during the first visit. It also helps me to figure out why you're sick and how best I can help you.

All of these lifestyle questions can seem tedious, but it's important to see the big picture rather than beginning simple algorithmic prescribing of natural or pharmaceutical products.

The CBC had a great news piece last week that I hope you caught. But in case you didn't, I think that it is worth it for all of you to watch the video and read the accompanying article. The title of this health article says it all and hopefully helps everyone to understand why I practice the way I do and why I ask so many questions. =)

A link between what kids eat and asthma? Food as medicine or for prevention......not so crazy of an idea!
