From the Founder

“COVID-19 has taught me the importance of a human’s immune system. No matter how much expensive medication we give our patients, the body itself still has to fight and heal from the virus. Above all else, choosing to be happy and healthy is the first foundation that needs to be established.”
– Thu

Our Mission

Our mission is simple. We want to give you the tools to lose weight the realistic way. Through education and a non-judgmental, compassionate coaching style, our intention is for you to be well-informed about your own health so you can take control of it and be independent.
The purpose for this mission came from Thu witnessing how uninformed patients were about their health and how dependent they were on their medical providers — to the point that they were willing to do anything their medical providers told them without question.

“As a Nurse at heart, for many years one of my main roles was to teach patients about their treatment plan. Naturally, as a Nurse Practitioner I emphasize a lot of teaching and education for my patients.”
– Thu
