Food is many things. Food is energy. Food is information. Food is connection…and Food is also medicine. What we eat is one of the key pillars of our health. Feeling strong, vibrant and energetic is greatly influenced by what we eat. Unfortunately, we have easy, cheap access to foods that have little value and are key contributors to disease and dysfunction. A plan is crucial for you to start making food create your health, rather than harm it.
The human body is meant to move. Unfortunately for most, we have jobs that keep us in a chair throughout the day, and much of our entertainment or personal time also involves sitting. Movement is a crucial piece of our health puzzle and thankfully there are a wealth of options available to get and keep you moving.
Stress is one of the major contributors to poor health and disease. In our technology-driven world of chronic stimulation and information overload, our bodies struggle to enter rest-and-repair mode. Using methods that fit your life, it's crucial to learn how to decrease stress, improve sleep, and let your bodies innate healing processes take over.
Research has shown that having supportive social connection is more important for health than nutrition, exercise, or even whether you smoke. In fact, the unifying features of ``blue zones,`` where people live the longest and healthiest on Earth, are strong community and relationships. It’s easy to become isolated, even when you see and interact with people daily. It's important to find ways to increase your connection to others and revive the support structure that historically was commonplace.
Dr. Gordon is just as interested in keeping his patients healthy as curing their ills. I have never had or heard of a doctor who has info sessions on exercise and eating properly in conjunction with professionals in those fields. A Doctor who is dedicated to keeping all his patients healthy in as natural a way as possible.
I would like to express my gratitude to Dr. Gordon. I have been a patient to many years. Dr. Gordon has taught me so much about my own health. He has taught me that I always have a choice of what I put into my body. How it will affect my metabolism. He knows what nutrients and supplements my body needs. I have learned how to eat healthy, exercise walk. Basically, that I am responsible for my health. Dr. Gordon listens to all of my concerns. Dr. Gordon explains everything. I trust his decisions.
To me, Dr. Gordon is the best of the 21st century holistic approach: accessible via electronic means (scheduling, email), flexible on appointment lengths depending on your needs, and open to non-traditional Western methods, such as herbal remedies vs. a quick Walgreens prescription. He's also well read and up to date on concerns about medications. He looks at the causes of conditions and illnesses, and is not content to just treat the symptoms by writing out a prescription.
To Dr. Gordon, wellness isn't merely the absence of disease. Rather, it's finding balance and harmony among factors such as nutrition, energy, exercise, and rest. Most importantly, it's working toward prevention of disease.
Dr. David Gordon is the most thorough and professional Doctor I have ever dealt with. He is willing to spend as much time as you need to listen to you concerns and discuss solutions. He thinks outside the typical medical "box". I feel VERY lucky to have him as my primary care physician.
If you are fortunate enough to make it on to Dr. Gordon's limited client list, be prepared to experience an comprehensive and caring level of service you've probably not had before. I believe he limits his patient list so he can spend the time he needs to create a holistic course of treatment for each patient. He's incredibly thorough and methodical, and a nice, kind man as well. I for one, so value that combination. If you just want medication for symptoms, you'll want a different doctor.
Dr. Gordon has a level of skill, knowledge, dedication to his profession and toward his patients that is exemplary. He takes the time to help me work proactively on improving health not just waiting until something goes wrong and medicates it. I went from a heart attack 4 years ago to having the cardiovascular health of a healthy active man 20+ years younger than my age. The professional staff were amazed at the results of my stress treadmill test.
