We believe that the simplest diagnostic procedure is also the most important: the art of listening, really listening, to you. What symptoms are you experiencing? How are those symptoms affecting your life? What do you hope to achieve? With the benefit of that understanding, we will work to develop a care plan matched to your personal situation and goals.

Metabolism, quite simply, is the conversion of food to energy. Metabolic rate is a measure of how much food, or fat, is converted to energy in a day. Resting metabolic rate (RMR) is the measurement of how much food, or energy, is required to maintain basic body functions such as heartbeat, breathing, and maintenance of body heat while you are in a state of rest. That energy is expressed in calories per day. So an RMR measurement shows how many calories you burn at rest, doing nothing more than sitting in a chair.
