Heart Disease is a Lifestyle Disease
Medicine + Nutrition + Lifestyle
Dr. Millie Lee
Dr. Millie Lee, MD, FACC, MBA, RYT believes that heart disease, like many chronic diseases, is a lifestyle disease and that we all have the potential to prevent disease with the proper guidance. That is why she is dedicated to working with patients with or at risk for heart disease by unearthing the root causes of disease.
After 20 years of practicing Interventional Cardiology in a traditional healthcare setting, Dr. Lee, also a registered yoga teacher, has transitioned her approach to an integrative one, integrating all elements of a persons’ health journey, integrating mind, body, and spirit.
By harnessing the power of Functional Medicine she looks beyond traditional risk factors to identify the real risk of developing heart disease. Armed with the knowledge of the real risk of heart disease, patients are empowered to heal their own bodies, mind and spirit.
Dr. Lee’s Approach – Own Your Health and Life
