Going the Distance
Patti Porto ran two marathons, then wanted a new way to test herself physically. So, today, she’s training for her first triathlon.
At 63, she says she feel great. But, that wasn’t always the case.
Patti first visited the UC Irvine Health Susan Samueli Center for Integrative Medicine in Newport Beach, Calif. to resolve issues related to menopause. She remembers feeling awful at the time.
Thanks to the Samueli Center, where conventional Western medicine is integrated with complementary treatments such as acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, and nutritional supplements, it wasn’t long before Patti was 35 pounds lighter and feeling terrific.
