Dr. Nirvana’s Top 5 Natural Fat Burning Foods
How to Eat and Lose Weight
As a Naturopathic Doctor, my focus on healing has a lot to do with the idea that Food is Medicine, especially when it comes to weight loss. Throughout my years in Practice, I have gathered knowledge about ancient medicines from my travels around the globe and integrate this information into my treatment protocols.
With so much information on-line nowadays, there’s a sea of opinions which can leave you feeling overwhelmed and confused. Weekly, I consult with teams of experts in my field for the newest research available and weave this information with my knowledge base to create health and nutrition for the body and soul.
Addressing weight loss with this same approach allows me to address the underlying cause while helping my patients lose weight quickly.
