While Dr. Asa Andrew was studying to become a doctor, he was part of a nationally acclaimed motivational strength and athletic speaking team. Being the smallest in stature on the team at 200 lbs, Dr. Asa Andrew was forced to gain weight. Rather than taking the typical shortcuts to gain outstanding physical size and going against his personal message to young people, Dr. Asa Andrew began eating massive amounts of calories. Dr. Asa eventually rose to 300lbs of muscle. Then he noticed his health was failing him. Bouts of fainting, night sweats, and extreme fatigue became the norm. After a visit to a physician, Dr. Asa Andrew found himself facing the beginning stages of a disease called diabetes. However, with the valuable information Dr. Asa Andrew learned in one of his many doctoral programs, he knew this was a lifestyle-related illness. So Dr. Asa Andrew faced a decision to either take medication or take responsibility for his own health and future. Dr. Asa Andrew had lifestyled his way into this health challenge of pre-diabetes, so by radically changing his daily choices, he knew he could lifestyle his way out. Dr. Asa Andrew eventually lost 70 lbs yet remained very strong but now in good health. By learning from this personal health challenge and meeting many around the country who have lifestyled themselves into similar situations, it was the enlightenment Dr. Asa Andrew needed to blaze a trail and work to improve the health of all Americans and teach them the tools to live a life of extraordinary health.
The word "Doctor" literally means "Teacher." Dr. Asa Andrew’s mission has always been to teach and help others achieve the life they desire. After going through much schooling, practicing in the field, and seeing how the traditional health care system worked, Dr. Asa Andrew knew that health had to be more than just surviving. It was more about thriving. So the question became, just how could we really achieve optimal health? Throughout Dr. Asa Andrew’s years of research and patient care he found that we spend more time trying to repair our health than preserve our health. During this time he realized a powerful, yet simple principle. Our health is our greatest wealth. From this concept Dr. Asa Andrew understood what people were constantly searching for. It wasn’t to look like the latest Hollywood star, but it was to live a high quality of life full of energy and vitality for as long as we are here.
So Dr. Asa Andrew formed his company in 2004 to educate, empower, and equip people to take responsibility for their health and their life. Dr. Asa Andrew formed it to help those who were already thriving in their health and to give Hope to those struggling with most health challenges. For years Dr. Asa Andrew had worked with thousands of patients annually helping them find common sense answers for their health and their life. Throughout his research in various areas of health care including: nutrition, naturopathic medicine, conventional medicine, diagnostic testing, osteopathic medicine, acupuncture, chiropractic medicine, and physical therapy has provided the experience and education necessary in understanding most aspects of health and how the body works. It taught Dr. Asa Andrew that there is one promising diagnosis out there - Hope. Dr. Asa Andrew watched his own family members die from cancer and heart disease and the grueling pain that is involved with those health challenges. Yet, he has also seen the victory of overcoming those struggling with their health. So Dr. Asa Andrew developed a new lifestyle coaching system based in natural, lifestyle-based principles that looks at the whole person. It is a wellness approach that blends a common sense natural-style with solid conventional evidence-based science to help many attain extraordinary health. Our bodies are integrative. Therefore, people must be looked at individually. Dr. Asa Andrew realized that all three areas had to be addressed before one could experience the vibrant health they were searching for.
