Dr. Henry A Villegas, MD, FAAP, FAWM began his career practicing pediatric critical care medicine and later devoted his time to pediatric emergency medicine in Minnesota, Georgia and Florida. His areas of experience and specialties are lifestyle medicine, wilderness medicine, general pediatrics and pediatric emergency medicine.
Dr. Villegas was a victim of the trend of our modern society and the western diet. Due to his wrong lifestyle choices, including untreated stress of his career, poor quality sleep, nutritional habits and minimal exercise, he ended up with type 2 diabetes, hypertension, fatigue, hyperlipidemia and metabolic syndrome. Furthermore, he had numerous expensive medical interventions, medications, laboratory studies and evaluations that were putting stress on his finances and joy of life. His prognosis was clear. Unless a lifestyle change was made, it was matter of time before he acquired more severe ailments such as chronic heart disease, stroke or heart attack.
Through a fundamental lifestyle change in diet, exercise and stress management, Dr. Villegas reversed his illnesses and eliminated all his pills. He is now a healthy, fit individual due to lifestyle intervention. This passion for personal wellbeing is the reason that Dr. Villegas developed the GreenLagoon Wellbeing Resort. He wants to pass onto you the benefits of his knowledge and experience, so that you may live a better life.
