Legacy Health and New Legacy Farms...
A radically different approach
After working for years in conventional medicine, Dr. Jerby realized the need for a drastic change for the improvement of healthcare--a change that takes the necessary time to focus on the whole person: mind, body, and spirit. Legacy Health is the product of that change and is the culmination of years of study with the gradual integration of natural healing therapies with 21st century scientific data. The result is a whole person approach to health and healing that is not tainted by the demands of a corporate "healthcare" system, third party payors, or pharmaceutical companies. This holistic, functional medicine model is centered on the belief that, given the proper nutrients and environment, our minds and bodies are designed to move toward healing and health. Since every person is unique, Dr. Jerby combines the best of conventional medicine with the best of natural medicine to design a personalized treatment plan for each individual.
Functional medicine focuses on the root cause of diseases and seeks to "get to the root of the problem." Once these roots are exposed, a treatment plan can be accurately prescribed. This is a far cry from conventional medicine which has a tendency to take a "one size fits all" approach that is heavy on pharmaceutical products. We believe that the functional medicine approach leads to true healing but true healing requires time and determination. Our dedicated staff includes the collective expertise of medical doctor, nurse, and health coach as well as other professionals to help you along every step of your healing journey. Since many imbalances and health problems begin in the gut, Dr. Jerby's expertise in gastrointestinal health and disease is a perfect fit to get you started on your journey to healing and health.
While your treatment may include a pharmaceutical medication, it most certainly will incorporate fresh fruits and vegetables from reputable local sources such as New Legacy Farms. Here is where Legacy Health becomes truly unique. In response to mounting data showing that many diseases are related to environmental toxins, Dr. Jerby and his family established this fully functional farm in 2011 to provide highly nutritious food that is free of industrial pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, and other toxic chemicals. Seasonal produce is available year-round and farm tours may be arranged upon request. Where else could your doctor also be your farmer? Come visit the"Farmacy"at Legacy Health!
