11/20 - Healthy Living - Dr. Nanda, Kaiser Permanente Physician
Dr. Nanda was born and raised in Orange County, and has spent his entire professional career with Kaiser Permanente. He graduated from USC Keck School of Medicine. He practices family medicine 50 percent of my time and, in the other 50, he works hard for you as Southern California's Regional Director of Health Education and Promotion. He believes family medicine is about taking a holistic approach to health. Instead of giving out painkillers, he encourages members to explore the power of the body and mind to heal themselves via both traditional and alternative therapies. Instead of turning to a "magic pill," he encourages optimal health through clean living, healthy relationships, stress management, mindful healthy eating, and daily exercise. He only prescribe medications for quantity or quality of life—the rest of the art of medicine is about helping his patients take control of their own health.
