What We Do

Heal like a human.

The human body has the incredible ability to heal itself. Our resilience to injury, disease, physical stress, and even aging, is remarkable. But there are limits and seemingly harmless lifestyle decisions can deteriorate those limits.

No two humans are alike. You’re a unique individual with unique goals, beliefs, and challenges. Together with your doctor at Love.Life Telehealth, you’ll establish a baseline of where you are today and create a plan that can ease physical and emotional stress, so your body can heal itself more efficiently.

Fighting disease through lifestyle medicine.

Treating the cause. Not the symptoms.

The doctors at Love.Life Telehealth successfully treat diseases and conditions through lifestyle medicine. Their thorough and thoughtful approach to your existing conditions and lifestyle informs what changes you can make to improve and possibly reverse disease. Changes as simple as what and how you eat, how you work, how you play, how you sleep, and how you exercise your mind, body, and spirit.

Conditions we treat.

Health, Wellness, and Longevity

While not specifically a health condition, overall health, wellness, longevity, and quality of life are the foundation of how the doctors at Love.Life Telehealth treat their patients. They are here to support you for wellness check-ups, health assessments, or to treat specific medical conditions. Whatever your health needs, your Love.Life Telehealth doctor will carefully assess where you are today and help you develop an individualized treatment plan that supports your journey to better overall health and wellness.

For some, this means optimizing lifestyle to support wellness and longevity. For others, it means focusing on improving athletic or cognitive performance. And still for others, it means optimizing health today to prevent illness from surfacing in the future. The beauty of lifestyle medicine is everyone can make adjustments, small or large, to optimize their health and wellbeing. 

Our aim is to help you achieve your goal of living a healthy, happy, active, and incredibly high quality of life for a very long time.

Cardiovascular Disease
Cardiovascular disease remains the number one killer of both men and women.1 This includes heart attacks, strokes, and other complications. Lifestyle factors, including diet, exercise, smoking, sleep, stress management, and connection play a major role. Intensive diet and lifestyle interventions have been shown to reduce atherosclerotic plaque and reduce the incidence of heart attacks and strokes.2

Type 2 diabetes is on the rise with 1 in 10 people in the US diagnosed with diabetes.1 Many more are insulin resistant. High fiber, low fat, whole plant foods have been shown to lower blood sugar, HbA1C, prevent and even reverse type 2 diabetes.2,3 Couple this with lifestyle factors such as exercise and stress management, and type 2 diabetes can be controlled.

Weight Maintenance
Plant-based diets have consistently shown benefits for weight loss and weight maintenance.1,2 Having support and creating healthy habits that are sustainable are powerful tools for successful weight management. Optimizing healthy lifestyle habits is also beneficial, including appropriate exercise, sleep, and stress management.

Autoimmune Disease
Autoimmune disease is when a body makes antibodies against itself. Some examples include rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, MS, psoriasis, Crohn’s disease, celiac disease, and type 1 diabetes. Lifestyle medicine can help reduce the inflammation, pain, fatigue and symptoms of an autoimmune disease. Eating an anti-inflammatory plant-based diet and enhancing lifestyle factors is important to lower inflammation and help prevent, halt, and improve autoimmune conditions.1,2,3,4,5

High Blood Pressure
High blood pressure, also called hypertension, or increased force through the blood vessel, is an extremely common disease affecting at least half of all Americans.1 Any blood pressure over 119/79 is elevated and increases the risk of many serious diseases such as heart attacks, strokes, kidney disease, poor circulation, and even dementia.2 But high blood pressure can be controlled and lowered with diet and lifestyle changes.3 Diets high in fiber, fruits and vegetables, low in sodium and alcohol, not smoking, getting regular exercise, and learning to handle stress can be powerful tools that improve blood pressure and overall health.

Dyslipidemia refers to unhealthy levels of one or more types of lipids, or fats, in the blood. This includes total cholesterol, LDL, HDL, triglycerides, apolipoprotein B, and Lp(a) for example. Elevated lipids are an established risk factor for cardiovascular disease and dementia.1,2,3

Optimizing lipids through diet, lifestyle factors such as exercise, stress management and relaxation, achieving a healthy weight, and optimizing sleep are effective tools for improving lipids, and should be a first line treatment.4

Arthritis is a general term for pain and inflammation of joints. It’s the most common cause of disability, and includes osteoarthritis, inflammatory arthritis such as gout, autoimmune diseases, and infectious or post-infectious processes to name a few.1 It can greatly affect quality of life and lead to permanent disability and damage. Understanding and addressing the root cause of arthritis can lead to significant improvement in joint pain and disability. By altering diet, lowering inflammation, nourishing, hydrating, and eliminating waste products, joint tissues can begin to repair and recover function.2 A Lifestyle Medicine approach should be considered for anyone experiencing joint pains.
