What participants say about Pivio

“After beginning the Pivio program, I feel empowered. I feel like I’ve been given the tools to start my new life. In 3 weeks I lost 10 pounds and continue to lose more weight as I maintain the journey at home. This has become my lifestyle, and I am very happy with it”

—Tonya, participant 

“I had high blood pressure….My goal for this program was to learn about food and what makes a healthy diet. What I got is much more.” 

—Deatrice, participant

What clients say about LMI

“Lifestyle—the way we eat and the way we move—has a huge impact on the prevention, arrest and reversal of chronic disease. As a medical innovator it would be remiss of Lee Health to withhold these life—changing programs from our staff and patients.”

-Dr. Lacagnina, former Vice President of Health and Wellness, Lee Health

9,500 Employees

Initial investment of $37,800 with a post lifestyle medicine intervention health expenditure savings of $70,155 in the first 12 months.

“I can’t thank my support team – Dr. Shalz, Charmin and Jeff – enough for giving me the tools and the encouragement to make changes in my lifestyle that are sure to have short-term and long-term benefits.”

“We physicians have many medications we can put patients on for high blood pressure, high blood sugars and high cholesterol, but the LMI’s program often gets better results than our medications. And given the high costs of these medications, physician visits and testing to follow up on treatment, LMI’s program more than pays for itself.” – David C. Pate, MD, JD, RN, FNP-BC

“The evidence that diet and exercise affect health and well-being is irrefutable. An intensive, comprehensive lifestyle program [LMI’s program] is capable of generating measurable savings with a meaningful ROI within a relatively short period of time.” – Dexter Shurney, MD, MBA, MPH

Huntsman Corporation, Worldwide

“The Complete Health Improvement Program at Huntsman has been nothing less than revolutionary! We have graduated over 110 employees through the program so far and the results have been absolutely life-changing!” – Antigoni V. Guevara, RN, FNP-BC
