Founder @Integrative Health Providers
Trey Bennett, Nurse Practitioner established Integrative Health Providers to address the growing chronic disease epidemic in America. Today, over 75% of health care expenditures in the U.S. are spent to treat Heart Disease, Diabetes, Obesity, and Arthritis. These illnesses are by far the most common, most costly, and most preventable diseases in the U.S. (CDC, 2015). These diseases have something else in common that you may not know. The first-line treatment for all of them is Lifestyle Modification (Medscape, 2017). We take a more natural approach to the treatment of chronic diseases.
