We believe big problems such as heart attack, diabetes or even obesity do not just happen overnight. They come about after many years of unhealthy habits, in various combinations, in your life.

At Adventist Lifestyle Centre, our second step of total healing is help you unravel those bad and unhealthy habits one at a time. Remember, our first line of treatment for your health issues are not based on drugs, medications or surgeries. Rather, we want to treat the roots that give rise to those big medical problems in your life. These roots lie in your lifestyle.
