What is Lifestyle Medicine?

Lifestyle medicine, also known as holisitic medicine, is the art and science of healing that addresses the whole person – body, mind, and spirit to optimize health. It involves prevention and treatment of disorders caused by lifestyle factors like poor nutrition, chronic stress, and physical inactivity.

Utilizing exercise, nutrition, and stress management consultations, Dr. Gokula develops custom health plans which encourage patients to proactively take care of your health. While providing analysis of physical, nutritional, environmental, emotional, and spiritual elements, we focus on patient education and participation in the healing process.

What is a Yurt?

A Yurt is a portable round bent structure traditionally used by nomads in Central Asia as their home. Originally from a Turkish word referring to the imprint left on the ground by a moved yurt, and by extension, sometimes a person’s homeland, kinsmen or feudal appendage. In Modern Turkey the word “Yurt” is used as the synonym of homeland or dormitory. The translated word in Mongolian, simply means “Home”.
