Lifestyle Medicine And Wellness Practice
Meet Dr. Edelita Jamis
Internal Medicine & Lifestyle Medicine physician
I am Edelita Remegoso-Jamis, a practicing Internal Medicine physician and also certified in Lifestyle Medicine. While my career took off pretty well, my health turned for the worse as I became diabetic at 38. As a primary care physician, I know how this silent disease becomes a gateway to other chronic diseases. Then I discovered the reversal of chronic diseases with a whole food plant-based diet. I became intrigued because I have never heard about this in medical school or in my medical training. I tried it myself and became well again. Now, it's my turn and duty to spread this life-changing discovery to others.
What is Lifestyle Medicine?
It is an evidence-based lifestyle approach to prevent, treat, and oftentimes reverse lifestyle-related chronic diseases such as hypertension, type 2 diabetes, high cholesterol, gout, obesity, autoimmune disease, cancer, etc. It focuses on self-care and self-management by understanding the root cause of the disease which delivers the total package of all positive health effects.
My approach is predominantly a whole food plant-based diet, regular physical activity, adequate sleep, stress management, and avoidance of risky substances --- the only prescription that is 100% free of side effects.
