With 2019 officially behind us, it’s only natural to want to switch things up a bit for the new year, especially in the health department. But with how hectic and busy the holiday season can get at times, many of us end up feeling too tired and/or unmotivated at the start of the new year to focus on anything health-related. In fact, this is typically the time when you begin to feel the over-whelm of your New Year’s resolutions and can’t help but worry that another year will pass without you meeting your most pressing health goals.

If this sounds all too familiar to you, then please know that you are not alone! Most people set out with ambitious plans to get healthier each year but then quickly come to realize they may be in over their heads. This usually happens not because they don’t know what to do but mainly because they lack adequate support and accountability in their daily routine to make lasting lifestyle changes.

One of the most effective ways to ensure you’re receiving all of the support you need to achieve all of your weight and wellness goals is to have a Lifestyle Medicine practitioner on your team. Lifestyle Medicine is an evidence-based approach to preventing, treating and even reversing weight problems and/or other conditions by promoting healthy, practical and sustainable behaviors, such as: 1) Eating a diet rich in whole, plant-based food; 2) Being physically active on a regular, consistent basis; 3) Developing daily strategies to manage stress; 4) Obtaining adequate sleep; 5) Having a strong emotional support system; and 6) Avoiding risky substance use.

Here at Olivera Health + Wellness, we’re committed to making these healthy lifestyle tools accessible to all of our patients. This is why we have enlisted the help of Dr. Eva Dec, a Lifestyle Medicine expert! As a naturopath, chiropractor, and holistic health coach with a diverse background, Dr. Eva is experienced in the management of patients with lifestyle-related conditions including weight issues and obesity, thyroid dysfunction, hormonal imbalances, autoimmune disorders, and other chronic diseases.
