Food is Thy Medicine

Published on January 13, 2014

A note from Dr. Lu-Jean Feng:

The new year 2014 has arrived. Some of us will set new priorities and goals to ensure a better year. As long as I can remember, my mother who is not a physician, always said to me, “health is more important than anything else.” I asked, “but Mom, how can I feel good all the time and not get sick?” Her answer made a profound impression on me, “you must eat the healthiest foods in order to live a long, healthy life.” Today I realize more than ever that you truly are what you eat.

After having studied illness, treated illness, performed surgery on both ill and healthy patients, I am thoroughly convinced that what you eat and what type of exercise you do, not genetics, will determine whether you will stay healthy. We take health for granted when we’re healthy. It is only when we get ill or someone close to us becomes ill that we start to question “how and why does illness begin?” Are there warning signs? Can we do something about them? Every patient that I perform surgery on, be it facelift, tummy tuck, breast reduction or liposuction, knows how much I care about their general health and well-being and how I offer advice on how to improve their odds of not getting heart disease, cancer, or other even the common cold.

For people concerned about the cost of health care, it is much more economical to prevent disease than to treat disease. So what is it going to take to improve your health this year? My staff and I are totally committed not only to practicing healthy living, but also committed to helping you to achieve optimal health, vitality and well-being!
