Jennifer Engels, M.D., has opened a new functional and nutritional medicine practice, Maverick Wellness, at Living Well Dallas, offering food sensitivity testing and nutritional counseling that can be very effective in improving all aspects of patients’ overall health. She states, “Proactive health care means trying to prevent disease, rather than reactive healthcare, which is reacting to a disease once you already have it.”
Many people need to know which parts of their diets and lifestyle are preventing them from achieving optimum health. Engels uses different strategies that can result in weight loss, decreased joint pain, resolved irritable bowel issues, improved diabetes and hypertension and decreased risk factors for cancer and heart disease among others.
Engels holds a degree from the Institute of Integrative Nutrition, in New York City, is fellowship trained in women’s imaging and has extensive experience as director of breast imaging at Baylor Medical Center of Garland and assistant professor at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School. She has also been a preventive radiologist in private practice at the world renowned Cooper Clinic, in Dallas.
