Am I At Risk?

Click the tab below to take the AUS-D-RISK and Heart Foundation survey designed to find out your risk of developing type 2 diabetes within the next five years, or to compare your heart age with your actual age.



This is not another weightloss program that measures calories, restricts your diet or drills you physically.
We don’t just tell you what to change going forward, we help you define the barriers that have kept you from succeeding in the past!




Abundant evidence now connects overweight/obesity to a chronic low-grade inflammatory state manifested not only by cells of the immune system but also, notably, by the fat cells (adipocytes).

This process is collectively known as 'Meta-flammation', or “chronic metabolic inflammation” and proves that there is a common cause to our pandemic of modern illnesses like Type 2 Diabetes, Pre-diabetes, heart attacks, 13 types of cancer and dementia, to name a few.

Metaflammation has either NO symptoms, or vague symptoms such as fatigue, sugar cravings, generalized aches, low vitality and low grade mental health issues.

The diagram illustrates how lifestyle and the environment is the CAUSE directly, (or indirectly through obesity)which is the CAUSE of Metaflammationwhich is the CAUSE of our modern chronic diseases.

This is why Lifestyle Medicine addresses the REAL CAUSE of 80% of our modern day medical problems.
