Welcome, I am  Patterson Stark and what my life has taught me as a doctor and a patient, is we as individuals have the greatest impact on our health.  This concept - in the context of my life, was lifesaving.  That is where "Stark-Health" started, and the book generated from decades of research, captures this adventure in "Live Now - Die Later, Starkhealth" illustrates​ this  unlikely story.

I now  promote that "real health care" is evidenced-based science - without a monetary agenda. It,  leads us to Lifestyle as our first  medicine of choice the majority to the time, whenever possible. 


I have learned "nature cures"; it is innate, built into the DNA of every living being on the planet!  If nature cannot connect,  or is isolated from the living being, a myriad of illnesses always appear.


Today, nine out of ten of your family will succumb to a chronic degenerative AVOIDABLE diseases.   Using the science of Lifestyle Medicine to stop illness can reverse this trend, gaining  vitality.

In this delicate balance of life,  each living thing is either moving towards or away from nature. Thus we are either moving towards its life-giving essence or away from it -  and all will join together eventually.   


Plant-based foods from vital sunlight, physical activity, diverse soil, good sleep habits, and stimulating/sustaining relationships allow the correct environment for a healthy body and mind beyond the imaginable.  No matter where you are on your health journey - this awareness of connection is powerful. 

When you are faced with life altering health issues -  it is a wake-up call!   Critical positive changes in behaviour and actions can happen;  as personal challenge allows us to be more open to change.

The Science of Lifestyle Medicine can provide the knowledge and understanding required to know which life habits are in need of modification.    


In the last 45+ years of clinical practice, I have seen nothing as powerful as a patient changing behavior to reconnect to the healing powers of the body to chronic degenerative disease; its prevention, reversal, or cure.   You need information contextual to you, support, and a community of health-oriented friends and family to make lasting changes for the better.  


Starkhealth is a start on the  journey to better health..
