“My cardiologist was so impressed with my results. By following Dr. Dunaief ’s advice, I’ve been able to stop all three of my blood pressure medications. My heart palpitations, which were limiting my activities, have dramatically reduced in frequency, my energy levels have increased and I have lost 15 pounds in two months.”

~ Nurse, age 62

Our Philosophy for the Journey to Better Health


Our philosophy is simple.  We believe wellness is derived through nutritional medicine and lifestyle interventions that prevent and treat chronic diseases.  Medications have their place.  However, there’s no medication without side effects.  The goal should be to limit the need for medications – or minimize the number of medications you take on a regular basis.On the road to better health

You are not limited by your genes.  Fortunately, most diseases are based primarily on epigenetics, which are environmental influences, and not on genetics.  Epigenetics literally means above or around the gene.  In epigenetics, lifestyle choices impact gene expression.  Just because your first degree relatives may have had a disease, it does not mean you are predestined to follow suit.   

We are specialists who will partner with your primary care physician.   A standard medical education does not integrate enough nutritional medicine and other lifestyle interventions.  Our goal is to bridge that gap.   As Maimonides, a Spanish philosopher from the 12th century said, “No disease that can be treated by diet should be treated with any other means.”

We use evidence-based medicine to guide our decision-making. The amount of research related to nutrition and other lifestyle issues continues to grow rapidly, with many showing significant beneficial effects on health.  To read more about evidence-based medicine, click here.

We treat each patient as an individual.  We will work with you to develop a plan that allows you to take a proactive role in managing your own health.  The health outcomes are worth the effort.
