Dr. John Podlaski



“My 37 plus years of experience shows that with a patient’s commitment to an individualized diet/lifestyle plan, a scientifically based whole food supplement program, stress reduction techniques and exercise, a person’s health and well-being can improve dramatically – not only physically, but emotionally as well. With an ongoing wellness supportive plan many health problems can be avoided, such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, obesity and female hormone imbalances. I love working with my patients to find what is interfering with their ability to express their full health potential. We work together as a team and once identified, I help them with a corrective plan so they can regain their health.”
