“I passionately believe health is one our most valuable assets,” says Dr. Larsh. “I believe that our very best health is not something that just comes to us. It’s something that we have to work for. But attaining our best health can be fun! That health is the sum total of a web of interconnected factors that include what we eat and how we digest our food, how we move, how we sleep, how we relax, and how we relate to each other. Health is the place where our genetics and our environment come together. It’s my role to provide information based on the latest research and state-of-the-art care, as well as inspiration, toward that end.”
