Discover how the next evolution of healthcare can help you achieve your wellness goals

McNab Wellness is on a mission to do something different.

Patient empowerment through lifestyle management and healthy habits is a transformative approach that places individuals at the center of their own healthcare journey.

 

By empowering patients to take an active role in managing their lifestyle, they gain control over factors such as diet, physical activity, stress management, and sleep hygiene. This empowerment is not just about avoiding illness, but also about enhancing quality of life, fostering resilience, and promoting a sense of well-being.  We are improving health outcomes by fostering a proactive attitude towards health, rather than a reactive one.

 

Say goodbye to reactionary medicine that treats symptoms, not causes. Say hello to healthcare where your doctor becomes a partner in better well-being. 

Longevity Medicine takes healthcare a step further by specifically targeting the aging process. The goal is not just to extend life span, but to enhance the health span – the period of life spent in good health.

We are always inspired by the stories our patients share about their health journeys at McNab Wellness. Each testimonial is a powerful testament to the positive changes that can happen when individuals take active steps towards better health in a supportive community. Here's one such story from a valued member of our community, who has experienced remarkable benefits through our lifestyle medicine approach and group events.

My experience under the care and coaching of Dr. McNab and Elizabeth was a breath of fresh air! They are incredible people who truly care, with an undeniable passion to see their patients have optimal health! I believe wholeheartedly in the path they are pioneering in the medical world- bringing people back to health from a wholistic approach- treating the root of the problem rather than just the symptoms! 

Through their strategic guidance, patient coaching, and amazing recipes, I was able to cut my insulin needs in about half! They offered hope in the midst of a new diagnosis that felt very hopeless and scary. I look forward to walking a path of health Dr. McNab carved out for me in order to give me a richer quality of life, and for that I can’t thank him enough!

I highly recommend McNab Wellness, an invaluable investment to your health!

Direct Primary Care with a Focus on a Healthy Lifestyle

Direct Primary Care (DPC) with a lifestyle medicine focus is a healthcare model that combines the personalized and patient-centric approach of DPC with the principles of lifestyle medicine. Let's break down both components for clarity:

Lifestyle Medicine:

This branch of medicine emphasizes the use of evidence-based lifestyle therapeutic approaches, such as a predominantly whole food, plant-based diet, physical activity, adequate sleep, stress management, avoidance of risky substances, and positive social connections as a primary modality to treat, often reverse, and prevent chronic disease.

Direct Primary Care (DPC):

This is a model of healthcare where patients pay a flat, monthly fee directly to their primary care provider instead of using traditional insurance methods. This fee covers most primary care services including consultations, visits, and routine examinations. DPC aims to improve the doctor-patient relationship by reducing the patient load, thus allowing doctors more time with each patient and offering more personalized care.

​When combined, a DPC with a lifestyle medicine focus provides comprehensive care that not only addresses immediate health issues but also integrates long-term preventative strategies through lifestyle changes. This model promotes overall wellness and helps in managing or reversing chronic diseases through natural methods and minimal reliance on medications. It is particularly beneficial for patients with chronic conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, and obesity, where lifestyle modifications are crucial for management and improvement of health outcomes.
