My mission is to bring healing and improve the quality of life for those individuals looking to stay fit and healthy, through use of nutrition, fitness, and bio-identical hormone therapy.” Dr. Angie’s own personal journey fueled her desire to help patients. Five years ago she switched to a plant-based lifestyle and adopted regular fitness into her life. She had previously suffered from health problems such as severe eczema, elevated cholesterol, fatigue, and was overweight. She started eating a whole food, plant-based diet, and transformed her health and body amazingly. This allowed her to completely restore her health and even compete and place in a fitness competition. “It was crazy to look at myself in the mirror and look like a fitness model, rather than a typical overweight physician. For this reason, I decided to share my success method with my patients.” Dr. Angie understands that no single approach is right for every individual, so she offers a complete range of services to help individuals with gut problems, obesity, anti-aging, diabetes, heart disease, arthritis, chronic fatigue, chronic pain, and overall disease prevention. Combining evidence based medicine, her expertise in the digestive system, and her passion for physical fitness and plant-based nutrition, Dr. Angie has developed a comprehensive approach to helping patients recover from illness and live a healthy life. Additionally, she is part of a new movement called “The Plantrician Project,” empowering individuals with the knowledge and benefits of a whole food plant-based nutrition.Dr. Angie Sadeghi is a diplomate of the American Board of Internal Medicine and a diplomate of the American Board of Gastroenterology. She has extensive training from the prestigious University of Southern California (USC), and demonstrates exceptional commitment to excellence in treating diseases of digestive tract. Dr. Angie is featured in three documentaries as a leader in the field of plant-based fitness for health and weight loss. Other upcoming projects include a book, Trifecta of Rejuvenation and Health. She was recently published on the cover of Vegan Health and Fitness Magazine, where she shared a health related article on making nutrition and fitness fun! In closing, Dr. Angie would say, “I want to leave a legacy of a doctor who prevented disease in her patients using the mastery of combing integrative medicine, western and eastern medicine, rather than simply using pharmaceuticals.”   Follow Dr. Danielle on social media!
