Olivera Health + Wellness is excited to announce the most recent addition to our clinical and administrative team: Dr. Eva Dec! Dr. Dec will serve in the capacity of the Director of Lifestyle Medicine, a Lifestyle Medicine Physician and a Holistic Health Coach here at Olivera, all in a concerted effort to expand our Lifestyle Medicine services.
Dr. Eva Dec is the founder of a private concierge natural health practice in the southwest suburbs of Chicago specializing in helping individuals balance their lifestyles and recover from chronic illness. Trained in naturopathic medicine, chiropractic care, functional medicine, holistic health coaching and public communication, Dr. Dec possesses a diverse set of skills needed to care for patients in the most natural and gentle manner possible. Dr. Dec believes that true health-care cannot exist without regular life-care, and it’s her mission to empower individuals with simple and sustainable lifestyle solutions on their journey to lasting health.
Dr. Dec’s own healing journey began in college when she came down with a chronic case of fatigue along with many other mysterious health issues. At the same time, her mother was also suffering greatly from pain brought on by two autoimmune conditions. After consulting with a natural medicine practitioner and implementing several simple recommendations, Dr. Dec saw a drastic improvement in not only her own health, but also in her mother’s painful symptoms. Impressed and inspired by these results, she vowed there and then to make holistic medicine her life’s work.
Dr. Dec received her bachelor’s degree in Public Communications from DePaul University in Chicago. Shortly after graduating from DePaul, she enrolled in the renowned Institute for Integrative Nutrition in New York, affiliated with Columbia University, where she studied under some of the most highly regarded experts in the natural health field and received her board certification in Holistic Health Counseling. Dr. Dec’s interest in functional nutrition and integrative health only grew stronger with time and eventually led her to obtain two doctorates in complementary and lifestyle medicines (Chiropractic and Naturopathy) from the well-recognized National University of Health Sciences in Lombard, IL.
Dr. Dec is continually committed to learning about the newest advances in healthcare, and has spent hundreds of hours outside of the classroom expanding her knowledge on lifestyle medicine, nutritional science, neurology, complex illness and functional testing. In her free time, she enjoys plant-based cooking, dancing, meditating and spending time with her fiancé and their cuddly Shih Tzu, Wally.
