  • Maybe you have concerns about your blood pressure, blood sugar, and or cholesterol levels, and maybe have even been told one or all of those things are getting high and that you need to do some lifestyle changes to combat them.

  • Possibly you feel like you're tired too much of the time and just don't feel like you're as full of energy as you think you should be, and want to change this.

  • Or you might feel "okay", but are concerned about your long term health and want to give your body the best opportunity to be healthy and more energetic – so you can pursue all that you enjoy and want to discover.

  • And maybe you've heard that a plant-based diet is a key way to impact all of these issues.

Plant-Based Diet Guide, Dr. Robert CurtisDr. Robert Curtis

Dr. Robert Curtis (D.C., A.C.E. Certified Health Coach and Fitness Nutrition Specialist)

Robert is a graduate of Cleveland Chiropractic College having previously earned his bachelor’s degree in Life Sciences from the New York Institute of Technology. 

In his professional career he served over two decades as the staff chiropractor for a multi-specialty primary care medical group in Los Angeles, All Care Medical Group, of Verity Health Care, through early 2017.

Over the course of his position there he also served as a Qualified Medical Evaluator for the state of California leading to further study and credentialing as a Certified Medical Examiner for the U.S. Department of Transportation.

Seeing the impact diet and lifestyle had on patients' health, and his own health, and the transformative effect of going on a whole-food, plant-based diet, he became drawn to a mission of sharing the plant-based message.

Along the way he became a Certified Health Coach and Fitness Nutrition Specialist with the American Council on Exercise (A.C.E.), and a graduate of the Plant-Based Nutrition Certificate Program through eCornell, and is focusing on plant-based nutrition and well-being related issues to help people transform their health and thus their lives.

Robert notes...

I love to listen and have the conversations that focus on what’s working now and or what worked before, and what the possibilities can be to further your health choices.

All of this by helping in the crafting of better habits for making changes sustainable in your daily life with an orientation towards a plant-based approach.

Also, no judgement here if you're a meat eater.  Every step in a plant-based direction has shown to be correlated to improved health, so my focus is to help you in going down that road, and in going all the way, if you wish – in conjunction with your primary health care provider's support.

Having worked in a multi-specialty medical practice for years in central Los Angeles I got to see the all too many manifestations of lifestyle interrelated illnesses in the forms of diabetes, kidney disease, high blood pressure, strokes and even cancer, along with numerous neurological, muscle and joint issues that to a large, and possibly in many instances, a complete part, were likely preventable simply by eating in a much healthier way.

Looking at this closely for years and its accompanying needless suffering, and my then own declining health from the Standard American Diet (aptly noted as S.A.D.), motivated me more and more to study deeper and spread the word about lifestyle being the baseline counter to this as I began to benefit from the changes myself.

In particular with a whole-food, plant-based approach, as the science has shown it to be a prime starting point, adding in exercise and stress management, along with growing connection with our fellow beings.

Accordingly, I have pursued this whole-food, plant-based eating way since 2012, having reaped tremendous gains in my health including resolving an irritable bowel condition, frequent anxiety, high cholesterol and the then coming onset of diabetes, hypertension, and related reduced circulation, all markedly normalized.

As I continue on this journey it's my honor and privilege to be of service in helping you to go down this path, aiming to optimize your health.

So nice to have you stop by, anytime : )
