Peak Total Wellness

Unlike conventional medicine that focuses more on the diagnosis and prescription, our team at Peak Total Wellness takes a much more holistic approach. By focusing on why your symptoms manifest the way they do, we seek to identify the root cause behind your chronic disease so that we can craft a personalized plan just for you.

Our Core

Values Of Care


An Integrative Approach

Guided step-by-step by our care team, you will implement an integrative approach to your wellness, drawing from the most up-to-date nutritional science and lifestyle medicine, to significantly improve your health and alleviate symptoms. We arm you with the knowledge to avoid many of the pitfalls that created your illness in the first place.

No matter where you are in your journey, with our expert guidance, you can heal and lead a vibrant life!


Co-Creating Health

Changing your lifestyle may seem daunting, but we teach you how to use mindset tools to overcome stubborn habits that aren't serving you any longer. We make the prospect of becoming healthy "fun" and have a wide range of tools in place to support you during your health transformation and beyond.

We also provide a support and accountability system so your new healing lifestyle practices can become an integral part of your everyday life.


Personalized Care

Not only is each patient biologically unique, their illness is unique too. There are so many factors that may be to blame for your illness – from lifestyle and food choices, allergies and even toxins in your immediate environment. Plus, let's not forget mindset, which plays a big role in your health.

After your initial intake is complete, specialty lab tests may be conducted to get the full picture of your health so that we can come up with a precise "healing prescription."


Dedicated Attention

In your typical 7-minute doctor's visit, there is little time to understand the depth of your illness, let alone the contributing factors that may have caused it.

Our care team takes the time needed, one-on-one, to conduct a thorough review to understand all the potential triggers for your health problems. This review includes your past medical history, your past and present diet, environment, stress levels, and gut issues. Your in-depth health history is the start to unraveling the root causes of your illness.


Root Cause Resolution

Unlike conventionally-trained doctors, our care team always focuses on getting to the root causes of your illness. We also examine the key cellular imbalances that are responsible for virtually all symptoms you’re experiencing right now.

Our functional medicine approach is effective because we focus on finding the catalysts of your illness, including potential food intolerances and allergies, gut & hormonal imbalances, and mindset issues that all impact your overall health.


Innovative Treatments

Did you know that it takes on average 17 years for clinical breakthroughs to make their way into your conventional doctor's office? That means many health care practitioners are dispensing outdated advice and not using the best lab testing available for your case.

At Peak Total Wellness, we are trained in up-to-date medicine – including the best, most advanced testing and we pair that with current nutritional science so that you can finally achieve your health goals .

“I never thought I'd see such a change”

I have been on the program now for almost 4 months; I am now seeing dramatic changes such as an increase in energy throughout the day and a decrease in anxiety. My overall mood is better and I no longer feel depressed. I never thought I'd see such a change but it is happening ... consistently and with each day that passes.

"I am extremely grateful to Steve"

Steve is a professional who looks at the whole picture and cared about my well-being. He provided the necessary tools to move forward by making specific recommendations in terms of supplements, diet type, meditation/stress reduction. I am extremely grateful to Steve for helping me develop and live a healthier lifestyle.

"Here's the real benefits I experienced!"

My chronic achilles tendonitis... gone. My pain level in my right knee - medically attested to be 'degenerative' - went down from an 8-9 to a 1-2 level. I stopped taking my blood pressure meds - high blood pressure runs in my mom's family - and I have now a better blood pressure w/o than with the meds. I fall asleep real easy and have a 'sound, deep, resting' sleep.
