Early in his career, cardiologist Stephen Devries had an epiphany.
When hetreated patients that left feeling great but had to return two, three, even four times for the same invasive heart procedure, he knew he had to change his approach.
"I realized my cardiology training prepared me far better for bailing people out of situations than preventing them," he says. "Pills and procedures are incredibly important, but they only represent a small part of what health care should be."
Nutrition is the top risk factor for death and disability in the country, Devries says. Yet it's not emphasized in medical treatment and care. It was left out of the curriculum when he was in medical school, and it's still not taught today.
Increasingly interested in the subject, he trained in integrative medicine-a combination of alternative and natural approaches balanced with conventional-and updated his practice.
The demand for his services was so great, he had a waiting list. Wanting to do more, he founded the Gaples Institute for Integrative Cardiology. Executive director of the Deerfield-based nonprofit, Devries educates healthcare professionals and the community about the role nutrition, mind-body exercise and physical activity play in preventing disease and promoting health.
