Strong Medicine

Aging and becoming frail is not a passive process – you have a choice. By focusing on addressing the sources of your discomfort and dysfunction, we challenge and inspire you to unlock your potential for wellness. Maximizing your health and longevity is a byproduct of that effort.

“We all have the strength to achieve vibrant health and longevity. By identifying the emotional, environmental and psychological barriers to lasting health, we can design personalized action plans and advanced nutrition interventions to make dynamic health the foundation of an exceptional life.”

Dr. Gabrielle Lyon

Our Approach

The Deeper Conversation

We view health as a whole-body, whole-person pursuit, delving into the physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, and social factors that influence your health. By listening carefully to your full health story, we can have deeper conversations to identify the barriers to your health.

Concierge Care

We’re here to help you achieve your best health. Our physicians and wellness experts work with you to personalize your treatment plan and then give you the tools, time, and attention to make you successful at achieving dynamic wellness and lifelong vitality.

Cutting-Edge Testing

We treat you as an individual, not the disease. We exceed the standards of laboratory evaluation by quantifying your unique potential for health with advanced genetic, metabolic, hormonal, and nutrient testing. We then tailor additional specialty lab testing based on the exposures or health events you’ve had throughout your life. We help you understand your total picture of health and function right now, how you got here, and how we will optimize it with a personalized action plan. We’ll work together to ensure your treatment includes foods, nutrients, movement, and mindset to meet your specific needs.

Challenge to Inspire

We challenge you to commit to your best health. Lifestyle changes are difficult but worthwhile, and we aim to inspire you to recognize your wellness potential and clearly pursue it.
