You’re probably already aware that leading a healthy, happy life begins with making savvy lifestyle choices. Our physician, Pamela Merino, MD, is one of the first medical professionals (204 physicians and 43 Ph.D./Masters level health clinicians in 2017), globally to be certified as Diplomate by the American Board of Lifestyle Medicine (ABLM), the American College of Lifestyle Medicine (ACLM), and the International Board of Lifestyle Medicine. Dr. Merino is Board-Certified in Obesity Medicine as well.
According to the ACLM, lifestyle medicine is the use of evidence-based therapeutic approaches including a predominantly whole food, plant-based diet, physical activity, adequate sleep, tobacco cessation, and other non-drug modalities to prevent, treat, and often, reverse chronic disease. Having healthcare providers who look at the underlying cause of disease and not just the symptoms helps patients to be proactive with their health and prevent, arrest, and reverse chronic disease.
Dr. Merino has a demonstrated passion for guiding her patients on the path toward a healthy lifestyle and achieving optimal levels of wellness. When you’re a patient at Integrity Health Spa Miami, you have Dr. Merino as your mentor to set goals and live a healthy lifestyle. Make world-class healthcare part of your self-care.
