The word “doctor” means one who teaches, and teaching is a role the Whitaker Wellness physicians take very seriously. Yes, they are skilled clinicians and expert diagnosticians. But they are also educators and motivators. Their primary goal is to make sure you understand the mechanisms underlying your personal health challenges, to show you how to implement your individualized therapeutic program, and to build enthusiasm for your new and healthier lifestyle.
Intensive patient education is an important part of our Back to Health Program. Every day during your one-, two-, or three-week stay, you will attend lectures presented by our physicians. Topics include heart disease, diabetes, pain, bioidentical hormones, exercise, nutrition, and other areas of interest. Through these educational sessions, you will begin to understand the causes of your health problems as well as the powerful role that nutrition and other natural therapies play in regaining optimal health. Back to Health Program participants are given the complete series of these talks on DVDs to provide reinforcement and motivation after returning home.
In other workshops, you will learn the nuts and bolts of putting your program into practice. Our exercise physiologist will teach you how to start—and stick with—an exercise regimen that ensures optimal benefits. Our certified nutritionist will outline the Whitaker Wellness diet, explaining the role of fats, proteins, and carbohydrates in achieving and maintaining health. In fact, diet is such an important part of the Whitaker Wellness lifestyle that we will cover food from every angle: shopping, preparation, cooking, even dining out. You’ll also receive recipes and menus to help you implement this therapeutic diet once you return home.
