Dr. Myrdalis Diaz-Ramirez
Have you been feeling tired and unable to concentrate, and all that’s been prescribed is a sleeping pill or an antidepressant? Maybe you have inflammation. You’re not sure what’s wrong, but your body doesn’t feel right. Perhaps you’ve heard about the healing power of resetting your microbiome, replenishing your hormones, how peptides can give you a fresh perspective, or how to prevent and reverse disease.
Medicine is much more than treating symptoms and employing a one-size-fits-all approach dictated by a system based on volume rather than the quality of care you deserve.
I understand what it’s like to know there are solutions that can dramatically improve one’s quality of life but be denied access to them.
I’ve discovered the best solutions in functional and regenerative medicine to prevent, treat, and reverse the health of my family, patients, and even myself.
There are FIVE principles I now strive to follow in order to provide patients with the best chance of thriving and living the healthiest lives possible.
Many patients inquire, “What would you do for your mother?” They want to know if I’m giving them the best advice possible. Yes, I adore my mother. Because of this relationship, I recommend the same therapies that I now offer to our patients to her.
With regenerative therapy, I’ve seen her lung condition significantly improve. I’ve also seen how she heals much faster from injuries and has beautiful skin, in addition to reversing kidney disease with specific strategies to reduce inflammation and the power of peptides.
I treat my mother the same way I would treat you.
These are the FIVE principles I follow to ensure that you receive the best care possible so that you can feel and look your best on the inside and outside:
- I’m your guide so you can make the best decisions as you retake control of your health.
- You and I consider and plan together those factors that influence your state of mind, body, and overall health.
- We bridge the best that alternative, conventional, and cutting edge therapies medicine has to offer.
- Conservative care guides us while being effective in looking for prompt and sustainable changes.
- We don’t stop until we have done everything possible to find the answer.
I’ve been a physician for over 20 years after training as an anesthesiologist and interventional pain management physician. After seeing many patients come into my office with lists of medications that only covered symptoms rather than getting to the root cause of their problem, and after experiencing symptoms that were simply caused by the normal deficiencies our bodies experience, I decided to make it my mission to help others avoid these issues.
This is something I’ve done successfully for myself, loved ones, and friends.
Now, I assist patients like you in living the best life possible by not only normalizing their lab results, but also optimizing your function down to the cellular level. We no longer regard aging as a weak period in our lives. We redefine aging so that you can live the best years of your life.
Consider who you will be next year if you don’t put off taking control of your health any longer.
Schedule an appointment with me today to be brave and
make your dream of becoming your ideal self a reality.
Dr. Miranda Phillips
Do you ever feel like you are destined to have your parents’ health problems? Have you ever found yourself worried about getting diseases that run in your family? Maybe you’re already seeing things in yourself that confirm your theory or make you fear the idea of getting older!
The breakthroughs in medical research over the past few years have revolutionized how we approach disease and aging.
Your genes do not have to be your destiny!
80-90% of chronic disease can be prevented by 7 specific things that are within our control.
Not only that, but these 7 things also help turn back the age of our cells so that they behave like ‘younger’ cells instead of ‘older’ cells.
I grew up watching my brother battle cancer, watching my mom struggle with weight and high blood pressure, watching my dad and one of my grandparents struggle with an autoimmune disorder, watching one grandmother battle cancer for the 3rd time while my other grandmother gave herself insulin shots for her type 2 diabetes.
I watched as one cousin after another fell victim to one or more of these diseases.
Needless to say, it was no surprise to me as a teenager when someone would tell me to enjoy my health while I have it because in a few years I would be having the same issues.
Over 25 years later, I have none of these and have never been healthier or more fit than I am right now. In fact, I have even reversed my own cellular/biological age and continue to look and feel younger as I get chronologically older!

Well, you’re in luck, because we can incorporate changes into your life based on YOUR schedule, based on YOUR diet, and in a way that enhances your quality of life now!
Okay, so let’s be honest, very few people make changes in their life without anyone’s help and I’m no different!!
BUT, I have found great success in having personal mentors who have done what I’m trying to do, accountability partners that I have to keep reporting to, and a community of resources to help me when I need it.
This is one of the reasons we have created SahaVida Institute!!
We are a community that speaks the same language and has the same goals for ourselves and our clients.
I don’t ask anyone to do anything I haven’t already done myself; my daily habits today are nothing like they were 5 years ago – and my health reflects that.
It didn’t come easy, and some things took much more work than others but here I am today. My goal is for YOU to reach YOUR health goals despite your genetics!
Together, as a team, you and I will optimize your body’s ability to perform mentally and physically day in and day out. We will take inventory of where you are at with your health and performance and what your current facts are regarding your lifestyle.
