What is the Soal Wellness?

Soal Wellness is a revolutionary wellness practice that aims to change the way people access, advance, and care for their health.

What Makes Us Different?

At Soal Wellness, we’re not just another medical practice that wants to put a bandaid on your symptoms. Nor are you just another nameless client for us to quickly push through the door.

While traditional medicine and medication have their place, this approach often fails to address the root cause of the health problem and simply masks the symptoms. Instead of quick fixes or one size fits all solutions, we use functional medicine and a root cause approach to optimize health and tackle frustrating weight problems.

We emphasize three pillars of wellness: nutrition, lifestyle, and mindset, to help our clients reach their health goals and stay there.

Let's Do this together

Our goal is simple: to help you achieve yours. Whether your goal is to lose weight, combat illness, increase your sports performance, or improve your overall health and well-being, we’re here to help. We begin with a comprehensive and in-depth evaluation, then customize a sustainable plan to meet your individual needs and goals. Every new client evaluation includes a comprehensive health exam. This exam includes an assessment of your personal and family history, current health concerns and symptoms, genetics, medications, supplements, and nutrition. We consider your current lifestyle and food preference and utilize biometric and body scan technology combined with extensive lab tests, including blood work and hormone testing.” While we treat all conditions, our specialties include medical weight loss, sports nutrition, and functional medicine.

Mediacal Weight loss by Soalwellness

Medical Weight Loss

If you're like so many others we've helped, we know you've probably tried every diet imaginable and likely even tried to sweat out the pounds with countless hours of cardio. Losing weight can be incredibly frustrating, especially as we age. So many men and women get discouraged when their best efforts don't get the desired results. Our medical weight loss programs are customized for your health and nutrition needs. Plans are simple to follow and incorporate our "fear no food" approach to nutrition and weight loss.

Sports Nutrition By Soalwellness

Sports Nutrition

As athletes, we know you have goals to reach. Whether it's your next PR or overall sports performance, how you perform depends on how you fuel your body. If you're looking to level up or hit a new fitness goal. We can help improve endurance, and increase strength and muscle recovery, by providing an individual nutrition plan for you. To customize your plan, we start with a complete health evaluation, including biometric testing, advanced laboratory analysis, and genetic testing. We help our athletes better understand how their body responds to nutrition and training to optimize overall performance training.

Functional Medicine by Soalwellness

Functional Medicine

It is said, "The good physician treats the disease; the great physician treats the patient who has the disease." While conventional medicine focuses on treating disease symptoms with pharmaceutical drugs, our method is to discover the root cause of your illness, and as all systems in the body are interconnected, so the foundation of functional medicine is a holistic approach to wellness. Our patients come to us with myriad symptoms, including difficulty losing weight, pain and inflammation, low energy and fatigue, gut and gastrointestinal issues, stress and anxiety, insomnia, and so much more. How can we help you live a healthier, happier life?

Our Three Pillars of Wellness

When it comes to losing weight, improving sports performance, battling illness, or maintaining a healthy lifestyle, you need to focus on all aspects of your life. At Soal Wellness, we take a multifaceted approach to wellness that focuses on nutrition, lifestyle, and mindset. 

  • Nutrition – Eating a well-balanced diet helps you feel better and reach your goals of living a long, fulfilling life. You can exercise as much as you want, but without fueling your body with the right ingredients, you won’t achieve the body or health you dream of.
  • Lifestyle – Health goes beyond what you put in your body, but also how you spend your time. Exercise and fitness are essential, but so are rest and relaxation because our bodies need adequate sleep to recharge and fight illness and stress. 
  • Mindset – Possibly the most important and overlooked part of overall health is our mindset. It is difficult to feel good and work toward goals if you’re not in a good place mentally. Fighting off that nagging self-doubt that you’re not capable enough to accomplish all you want, can be detrimental to your success.


You deserve to feel great. I’m here to help.

I believe that all people can heal and improve their health and well-being when given the proper tools. The most potent and effective medicines are often not medicine but rather a diet, lifestyle, and environment change that provide the foundation for healing and restoration within the body—allowing a natural and restorative process to occur.

Of course, we do recognize that there is a time for medication and supplements. However, the significant and most noticeable results often are found when a patient finally eats a nutritious diet and improves lifestyle and environmental factors.
