I'm Dr. Cheng Ruan, MD

After graduating medical school in 2009, I was unpleasantly met with how medicine is truly delievered in the United States. It was not exactly the way I expected to start my physician career! Texas Center for Lifestyle Medicine is a model to show the country that there is a better way to improve health, outside of just regluar doctor's visits with prescriptions in hand out the door. We have to involve the community! Ever since 2017, we have been building and evolving on how to improve and even reverse chronic illnesses.  Now I am using what I've learned to help people just like you transform your health and quality of life no matter what diseases or disorders you've been challenged with. My team and I will show you that by involving you in our community, we can guide you in working smarter to improve your health!


"I always thought I had to live with pain. Now that I know there is a better way. I wish I did this sooner!"

- Mary. Woodlands, TX

"I can't believe how close I was to changing my mindset about life. My family and I are forever grateful."

- William. Houston, TX

"I honestly over researched and Google'd on my own for years since doctors didn't have an answer. It really took coaching for me to realize it was in me all along to heal!"

- Susan. Houston, TX

The truth is most people with chronic illnesses feel alone, uncertain and unsupported in their healing journey.

But healing can be tricky.

You may feel...

  • There is no trusted guidance or have information overload.
  • Alone in a perpetual health journey.
  • Lacking in guidance on how to heal.
  • Distracted by marketed fads on social media.
  • Defeated from others who do not understand how difficult your healing path can be.

No one should have to go on their health journey alone, unsupported and confused.
