[BE WELL] Wellness Path + Take Probiotics for many Wellness Benefits

ABOUT My Wellness by Nature Board Member, Derrick DeSilva, Jr. MD

Areas of Expertise:

Internal medicine, functional medicine

As a healer and a physician, I have always believed to extend my knowledge and intentions into the universal care of the patient. One of my favorite expressions is "The best of both worlds." The unity of the worlds of medicine from both the East and the West. Eastern medicine has existed for 5000 years while Western medicine although newborn has a great deal to offer. The essential key is to unite these two cultures and incorporate them in a safe and effective manner for the diagnosis and healing process of the patient. The primary words to this are safe and effective. Each patient is different and has a unique set of needs - in this case, one size does not fit all. As I strive to know my patients and access their individual health concerns and needs, a cooperative plan of care will be formulated. Ideally, each individual must be encouraged to be responsible for one's health. Once this concept is embraced, I will be able to assist each one in their road to better health.

ABOUT Fitness and Lifestyle TV Show Host, Leisa Hart

You likely know me from my Buns of Steel® workouts, and have the impression that my life is all smiles and no stress.

I've been truly blessed by the tremendous success of my career with Warner Brothers and then owning my own Yoga Studio, but it all came with a price.

Along the way, I took on far too much and hit many road blocks that took a hazardous toll on my health - physically and spiritually.

The storm was a mix of a hip fracture, back surgery, an RA (rheumatoid arthritis) diagnosis, chronic pain, sleep deprivation and anxiety.

I had to take a huge step back and reevaluate my my path. I had to slow down. Tremendously. And not even by choice, but rather survival.

Now, I'm proud to say that I've weathered the storm and am stronger than I've ever been.

I've learned SO much along the way and am honored that you're here for me to share my journey of self love, stress & toxin reduction, anti-inflammatory nutrition, simple fitness routines & more!

Dr. DeSilva is one of my favorite doctors to listen to. He is such a warm and caring individual and really cares about the products he recommends to his patients. I have learned so much about my gut health and Hashimoto's from Dr DeSilva. The belly buddies have really helped me to feel better daily, and know that I am helping my body to care for itself. They say the foundation of health is started in the gut and it really makes sense to me now.
