Have you heard the expression, "You are what you eat?"  I'm sure we all have, but for Dr. Elizabeth Morris, it's a cornerstone for her medical practice.  The former Team USA synchronized ice skater practices family medicine and focuses on preventing, treating and reversing chronic disease, in part, by changing our eating habits to a more plant based diet.  Lifestyle medicine, the focus of Dr. Morris's practice, involves more then just nutrition,.  Exercise, sleep habits, stress reduction, smoking cessation and moderating alcohol consumption go hand in hand with eating for a healthier life.
