“My main goal is to treat each of my patients in the most natural way, using real food that gives their body the nutrients it needs to heal itself. Treatment focuses on resetting the metabolism and balancing the body to allow for healthy, science-based weight loss. We eliminate inflammation in the body, the root cause of disease, and as we do this, patients let go of excess fat, water and toxins their bodies are holding onto. Week by week I watch the amazing transformations in my patients, their skin becomes clearer and their pain goes away. They are sleeping better and managing their stress. Their blood pressure becomes normal to a point where they no longer require medications. Type II diabetes and other diseases are reversed, and most importantly they have more energy and finally feel better! My patients end treatment with an education for a lifetime and feel empowered to maintain their new healthy weight because they understand what their bodies’ needs are and WHY. Balance your body, balance your life!”
In Dayna’s spare time you will find her on a yoga mat, mastering healthy food recipes or traveling to a new destination. She is a health practitioner who “practices what she preaches” and knows from personal experience how liberating it is to take charge of your health in a natural way!
“Let thy food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.” – Hippocrates
“I was looking for a team to help me rebuild myself emotionally and physically. At Scarsdale Integrative I found what I was looking for. After meeting Dr. Lee for an initial extremely thorough and imperative visit she referred me to the person who would help me “pour my foundation”- Dayna Arena. Dayna has been my mentor, co-contractor, guide, cheerleader etc.. for the past 4 months and 21lbs. Eating a mostly vegetarian diet with occasional fish I had a challenge ahead of me with losing the weight I needed to but Dayna was so great coming up with fresh new ideas and options for me weekly. She worked with me in a kind and generous way with tons of optimism & patience and zero judgement and I have finally made it to my goal weight after 4 months. Now she is guiding me with lifestyle/maintenance protocol which is so important for someone like me who needs a structured regime to fall back on. I have recommended her services to many of the people in my life and a few have already signed up to have her help them as she has helped me and they are all doing great! I would recommend her to anyone, anytime, anywhere without reservation. A true pro. Thank you Dayna for helping me be myself again. “
