?Navigating the Complexities of Regenerative Medicine
Originally trained as an internist, Dr. Jake Johnston decided to also do a residency in emergency medicine because he believed that acute care was how he could really help make a difference in the lives of patients. Yet, through the years as an emergency medicine physician, Dr. Johnston saw that many issues he was treating in the ER could be more successfully treated within a system that could provide patients the long-term care and support they needed.
For at the last 25 years, Dr. Johnston has been been exploring ways to better care for patients. He recognizes that traditional medicine does not get to the root cause of diseases or disfunction. As both professional development and a desire to see patients get more personalized care, Dr. Johnston has found ways to understand and apply:
- Electronic medicine
- Enhanced performance and recovery care for athletes
- Regenerative Medicine
Dr. Johnston’s desire is to help people give back to their community, find joy, appreciate and engage with family, and have the energy to just wake up and enjoy the day. These are all of the things that people can’t do when they are bogged down by pain, injury, and disease. Finding ways to treat underlying causes is what has driven Dr. Johnston from the beginning of his medical career.
As both an emergency physician and as a business owner, Dr. Johnston has focused on metabolic, functional, and integrative medicine. He has experience in working with people of all walks of life and all around the United States and the Caribbean.
Jake and his wife have been married for 22 years and have 4 boys. Dr. Johnston’s hobbies include playing the piano, art, windsurfing, kite-boarding, travel, remodeling houses, and child development.
Dr. Johnston has transitioned from a disease-based model of medicine and moved into his passion for health-based patient care. Having started is own regenerative health management office, he is now offering a comprehensive look at patients’ health.
Regenerative medicine is about helping the body heal itself. The way most doctors use regenerative medicine is from a “poke and hope” perspective. Dr. Johnston, however, adheres to the concept of regenerative health management, which is the active, on-going process of helping the body heal itself.
Unfortunately, improving one’s quality of life is often not an easy task. However, as both a physician and a medical advisor, Dr. Johnston develops and implements a health and treatment plan that is specific to each individual.
Through a medical advisory, relationship-driven approach that considers the whole person, Dr. Johnston helps patients become long-term clients, as they focus on achieving a better quality of life, regardless of the person’s starting point.
