“Let food be thy medicine, and medicine be thy food.” - Hippocrates, 431 B.C.

Hippocrates is considered to be the ``father of modern medicine``, coining the Hippocratic oath which doctors still recite to this day upon graduating medical school, promising to ``first, do no harm``. This can be quickly forgotten, as well-intentioned physicians tend to prescribe medications that can be harmful to the body and the wallet, before suggesting dietary and lifestyle changes that can cure and prevent chronic conditions.

I am a Dr. Miranda Graham, a general practitioner who takes an integrative approach to medicine and evidence-based nutrition. I work with my patients to teach them how to improve their lives with a plant-based diet so that they can feel better, lose weight and be able to suspend medications they take when and if this is possible.

Where I practice medicine, in Costa Rica, we are all about pure life (pura vida). You can live a pure life too, and I can guide you through the process.

Integrative and Evidence-Based Medicine

Dr. Graham takes an integrative approach to medicine, viewing each individual as a whole, considering nutrition and lifestyle choices as well as medical history before prescribing medications.

Patient-Doctor Relationship

Miranda takes pride in forming a professional rapport with her patients, opening lines of communication between consultations to answer any questions you may have during your journey.
