What is the Healthy Transformation Program?

Wellness is more than the simple absence of disease!

The Healthy Transformation Program is designed to focus on the “who” and not the “why” of lifestyle change.

When was the last time you searched for who you are? The “who” you were when your imagination was active and created our world. Do you remember who you dreamed you would be when you were 4 or 5? And while the dreams of astronaut, movie star, paleontologist, doctor, fashion model or millionaire we chose then might not align with the “who” that now shows up each day, the archetypal roles that were important, meaningful and valuable to that 4 or 5-year-old are likely still important motivators for us today. The courageous little girl or boy wanting to excel, conquer the world, to help others, still exists in each of us, though it may be hidden. For many, this personal touchpoint for creating optimal wellness has been lost.

Contemplating these questions may prove helpful in defining what is especially important, meaningful and valuable to you. This exploration might provide insight to the real you, the person you are truly meant to be. Your authentic self is the person you are at your core; the person you can be if nothing holds you back. Imagine the person you believe yourself to be right now. Imagine using all the tools at your disposal to be this authentic you. Using each of your strengths, beliefs and values, create this self.

Your authentic self is the best judge of whether a specific lifestyle change makes sense for you. Is it functional? Does making that change support expressing your true self and allow you to simply be you. The “one” you chose when you were 4-5 years old.

Our Healthy Transformation Program will facilitate this exploration and provide you the tools to make meaningful lifestyle change.

Our clinically-studied program includes:

  • Individual and group visits with experienced practitioners.

  • Personalized low glycemic load, phytonutrient-dense food plans.

  • A program guide with easy-to-follow instructions, menu plans, and recipes.

  • Protein shakes and soups designed to support weight loss.

  • Supplements, probiotics, fiber, and protein bars for advanced nutritional support.

  • A simple exercise prescription.

  • Online support, including FAQs and helpful lifestyle tips.

What can I expect as a program participant?

This 8-session series will meet on Wednesdays at 4 pm in the PLMC waiting room. Each visit will include a brief medical visit and 60 minutes of experiential education. Group visits are led by Dr. Lamb, a recognized leader in Functional Medicine.
