Dr Lana Karpova
Endocrinologist and Certified Lifestyle Medicine Physician
My way to Lifestyle Medicine practice was through my own life experiences. After many years of hard and stressful work, combined with moving to a new country to pursue a new career, along with my then 12 year old son, all caught up with me. Causing me a few years ago to experience some health problems of my own. Lifestyle Medicine has not only enabled me to reverse chronic disease, but it has empowered me to change my life completely in creating a healthier environment for me and my family. I truly believe that I have discovered a new passion.
Lifestyle Medicine is an evidence based practice to help patients engage in a beneficial, healthy life. This new practice proves to and assures our patients that chronic diseases are not a part of a normal aging process. The human body has remarkable resources for recovery. Even a severe chronic disease like diabetes could be reversed and prevented by Lifestyle changes.
Lifestyle Medicine interventions often are not easy to implement. It is hard work to change lifelong habits, behaviours and diet, but not impossible. Therefore, one must focus on the end goal and the long term benefits. I celebrate the positive results and the fruits of our labour together with my patients!
