“The Lifestyle Medicine program at Rancho La Puerta is a game-changer. They paired highly detailed health results with a personalized workout and nutrition program, and I walked away with a realistic plan to meet my lifestyle goals. The week at The Ranch provided the needed time to have access to experts and kickstart my journey.” – Cory
Lifestyle Medicine starts with the premise that humans thrive in specific circumstances. Modern life can limit many of the very things that make us healthy: clean air, moving our bodies, whole, unprocessed foods, sleep and time spent with others. And while modern medicine takes measure of health parameters like blood pressure and cholesterol, these are merely symptoms of the missing components in our lives.
By putting our medical expertise and recommendations into practice at The Ranch, you are getting a comprehensive prescription in living well-–or Lifestyle Medicine. We call The Ranch a place to practice what we preach. You’ll spend your days immersed in nature, eating a plant-based diet, taking a reprieve from technology, and learning new ways to adopt healthier habits at home to achieve your best health.
Guests participating in the Lifestyle Medicine Program begin their stay at Lifewellness Institute. This half-day comprehensive look at your health starts with curated lab work completed before your appointment. On the day of your visit, we will complete the Foundational Physical, including bone density, body fat, ultrasounds, VO2, and exercise and nutrition assessments by our team of experts. Your visit will conclude with a comprehensive review of your personalized plan with our physician. A simple breakfast, healthy snacks and lunch are available throughout the day.
