SLP | Synchronised Lifestyle Modification Program
After about 10yrs of clinical practice Dr. Feroz started realizing that there are many missing keys for disease reversal in conventional medical system. Over a period of few years, she started to find the link between poor eating habits, sleep deprivation and stress in the causation of a chronic disease and speedy ageing. For 5-7 years She kept analyzing the relationship between the individual components of a lifestyle and their impact on various human systems, which lead to the birth of Synchronized Lifestyle Modification Program—SLP.
Over time SLP turned into a fully developed Lifestyle Modifying Program with six pillars which are,
1-SLP–8-Rules of Correct Eating
2-Nocturnal Sleep regulation
3-Personalised Physical activity
4-Personalised stress management
5-Management of various Addictions
Using her 8 rules of correct eating, she converts table foods into a medicine customized for the patient to heal.
SLP focuses on the restoration of the immunity, Microbiome health, circadian rhythms and homeostasis, by synching the external routine of that person with the ongoing internal biorhythms through an individualized SLP food plan.
The beauty of SLP is that is can be benefitted by the rich and poor alike, simply by optimizing intake of kitchen foods. It is found helpful for positive/preventive health, disease management and reversal of a disease process. In 2014 she realized that she was on the scientific tract of a new medical specialty called Lifestyle Medicine. Since 2015 she started following American College of Lifestyle Medicine. In 2017 Dr. Feroz appeared in first IBLM examination by ABLM in Tucson Arizona.
