  • Can NMH be my Primary Care?
    This is not a Primary Care Practice, nor do we manage routine sick visits or annual health screenings and vaccinations. Our program is NOT a substitute for the care provided by your Primary Care Physician or Specialist. We strongly recommend you consult your Primary Care Physician or Specialist before joining our program.
  • What makes NMH different from others?
    Unlike traditional diabetes management, our program is designed to uncover and treat the root cause of disease by applying evidence-based, whole-person, prescriptive lifestyle changes to manage and treat illness. Our program is carefully designed to fill the gap in the current transitional care model by providing a structured team-based multidisciplinary setting powered by many objective tools and technologies for better patient education, engagement, and empowerment that are vital for their health behavior change and lasting success. Our state-of-the-art RPM and CGM technologies provide real-time objective feedback to our patients and help change their lifestyles with ease.
  • What Do I Need To Do In Order To Be Successful In This Program?
    Transforming your life and regaining control of your health is not easy. If it were, you likely wouldn’t need our support. Our intensive program requires patients to be consistent, which is why we require a 6-month commitment. Making big lifestyle changes takes time, and forming new and lasting habits doesn’t happen overnight. The program teaches practices that are meant to be implemented for life. While our team of experts is here to teach and support you, ultimately, this program starts and ends with you.

    - No. - Even though we do NOT actively prescribe them, patients join our program with those medications started by their doctors, and we can help them get the best out of them and teach them to improve their lifestyle to have them keep the benefits for life even after they stop those medications.
  • Do I need to give up all Meat, Poultry, Eggs, and Dairy products if I join your program?
    - To get the best results and lifelong benefits, our ultimate Nutrition Prescription includes a "Whole-food Plant-based" Lifestyle. Meaning STOPPING all animal-based foods (Meat, Poultry, Eggs, and Dairy products i.e., milk, cheese, butter, etc.) and Processed food (including plant-based) - BUT we understand the struggle and practical challenges the majority are concerned about. That's why we offer a strategically designed 6-month program (NOT a 6-week) to make that switch (transition) seamless, enjoyable, and sustainable for lasting benefits.

    No. Even Keto diet has a lot of short-term benefits, as a lifestyle medicine center we do neither advocate nor prescribe keto diet (animal-based and plant-based keto diets) for many reasons including: it’s not a sustainable path in the long-run and also concerning for many long-term consequences such as increased heart disease, cancers, all-cause-mortality, etc.
  • Does your program guarantee all the results you promise?
    Yes, if you follow all our recommendations consistently as prescribed in a timely manner with full commitment and accountability - But we’re also mindful of the real-life challenges and limitations. We don’t expect every single patient to have the same physiology, body or disease conditions, beliefs, and behavioral patterns. Results and benefit vary from patient to patient depending on their level of engagement, commitment, accountability, and how effectively they are improving their lifestyle.
  • Will your program replace my Primary Care Physician (PCP) and/or Endocrinologist?
    No, this is ‘supplemental program’ to manage your diabetes but not a ‘substitute’ to the routine care by your PCP or diabetes specialist. - In fact, you MUST continue your care with them before, during, and after you participate in our program - Goal of our program is to help you improve your Insulin Resistance so you can improve our glucose levels, rely less on medications if not stop them completely, prevent complications, and have better quality of life!

Chronic disease is so common that more than half of U.S. adults have at least one condition, accounting for 90% of healthcare spending.
  • Do you believe that people benefit from only vegan or vegetarian lifestyles?
    ACLM believes in the adoption of a predominantly whole food, plant-based dietary lifestyle. That stance recognizes that a range of dietary practices have evidence showing healthy benefits. The common thread appears to be the intake of a large proportion of whole plant foods.

    - Yes! Insulin Resistance is the underlying cause of Type-2 Diabetes and by reversing Insulin Resistance we can absolutely put your Type-2 Diabetes in remission - Type-1 Diabetes is a permanent/irreversible condition that requires a life-long Insulin administration, majority of the Type-1 patients develop Insulin Resistance over time. We did and can help Type-1 patients improve their diet, exercise, and other lifestyle factors and significantly reduce the need for the total daily insulin need, make their glucose levels predictable and prevent many complications.
