If you are looking for a conventionally-trained physician (i.e., real medical doctor) who focuses on lifestyle and not pills, you have come to the right place.
I practice Lifestyle Medicine, encouraging patients to take control of their well-being by making informed, healthy choices.
An innovative branch of medicine that encourages people to utilize a healthy diet, activity, effective stress management, good sleep hygiene, and a support network in order to lower the risk of developing illness.
"Dr. Feiwel saved my life!
When I was 17, I started getting stomach aches. As I got older the stomach aches came more often and at times were incapacitating. Eventually they became an almost daily occurrence, and I was also diagnosed with GERD. For decades I was living on one of the Maalox formulas and accepted all this as part of my life.
When I turned 50 I began having hot flashes and also realized that my health had been changing over the years. I used to get a sinus infection every winter, but it seemed now that a cold most often became a sinus infection, and sometimes a respiratory infection. That last winter before I met Dr. Feiwel, I was sick more often than ever before, and each time I was sicker, and for longer. I was scared! Every doctor I went to (primary care, gastroenterologist, gynecologist, endocrinologist) looked only at my symptoms and did not consider a possible food related issue.
It was around that time that I met Dr. Feiwel and spoke to her about my health. She suggested I do an elimination diet. She gave me information about the elimination diet and helped me prepare, providing the support I needed because I was nervous about all the changes to my diet. Dr. Feiwel was there for me every step of the way! She had patience, answered all my questions, explaining everything to me in a way that helped me better understand how all of these changes would help me heal.
We found that dairy and gluten affected me and had to go. Dr. Feiwel helped me re-do my diet and make it manageable. I am now gluten free, dairy free and even caffeine free!! It took a long time to figure out how to do this and adjust my diet, and now 6 years later I can tell you that I’m doing much better. I was able to stop taking the medication for GERD. The stomach aches have disappeared (unless I eat something I’m not supposed to). Best of all, my health has improved dramatically, as I get colds very infrequently and when I do, it rarely develops into anything more.
I owe it all to Dr. Feiwel, as I could not, would not, have undertaken the elimination diet by myself. And I certainly would not have had the information I had because of her. I am eternally indebted to her for the changes in my health!!"
