We at Family Physicians of St Joseph endorse and recommend the Mediterranean and DASH diets for all of our patients to attain improved health. Both diets have been rigorously studied and reviewed via evidence based medicine with consistent data outcomes demonstrating improved blood pressure, cholesterol, and glucose levels as well as overall reduction in risk for certain cancers, heart disease, diabetes, and metabolic syndrome. These diets also support a healthy weight and often result in significant weight loss.
