Our Story

Transform Institute specializes in Preventive Care and the management of chronic metabolic diseases such as diabetes, hypertension and dyslipidemia. Our integrative and holistic approach is fresh, innovative, evidence-based and outcomes driven. The center of our model is the individual. We strive to bring out the best in each person in terms of health and personal growth and expression. Our approach is community focused with the intention of eliminating health gaps by addressing social, emotional and environmental factors that impact our sense of well-being.

Our mission is to empower patients and health providers to transcend challenges and transform their lives through re-envisioning healthcare towards restoring wholeness.

The current paradigm of healthcare is sickness based. Today’s chronic diseases–hypertension, diabetes, heart disease, strokes–are caused by obesity, which is a direct result of the way we live. Health care providers are more and more aware that we can’t significantly help our patients without addressing their behavior. As an organization, our approach treats diseases at the root cause, rather than treating the end results. Transform Institute steps into a health care vacuum to improve health and lessen the financial costs of health care by treating common chronic diseases through redesigning lifestyle and behavior. As experts in the treatment, prevention and long-term management of root cause conditions such as obesity, we impact health and healthcare at their foundation, saving payers and patients money and, more importantly, saving lives. We do so by addressing lifestyle issues across the entire health care spectrum from patients to caregivers. We acknowledge the fact that public health requires treating individuals and communities.

Transform Institute is a pioneer in wellness-based care that is grounded in science and epigenetics (the interaction between genes and the environment). The simple triad of behaviour, movement and nutrition is the trifecta of Preventive Care and our goal is to empower our patients towards this new paradigm. We do so by providing our patients with emotional/mental health support, education, outcomes-based healthcare, programming, public awareness and research.

Wellness requires that individuals live and function well in body, spirit and community. We support and nurture people to embrace the full strength and complexity of their humanity. In other words, besides helping you physically live longer, we help make life worth living.
