Dr. Saray Stancic is a board-certified physician and the founder of Stancic Health and Wellness, LLC where she practices Lifestyle Medicine.
She received her M.D. degree from New Jersey Medical School in 1993. Dr. Stancic completed an Internal Medicine residency and served an additional year as Chief Medical resident at University Hospital in Newark, NJ. In response to witnessing the height of the catastrophic HIV epidemic while in medical school in Newark, she became very interested in the field of Infectious Diseases. She wanted to be part of the solution to the AIDS health care crisis, and went on to complete a fellowship in Infectious Diseases.
In the fall of 1995, Dr. Saray Stancic was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis.
By 2003, she walked regularly with a cane, had given up virtually all unnecessary physical activity, and was on numerous medications, all with horrible side effects. After stumbling upon some studies that linked MS outcomes to diet and lifestyle, Dr. Stancic undertook a radically different approach to managing her illness. Within a relatively short time period, she was off all MS medications, walking normally, resumed dancing, and in 2010 she ran a marathon!
Today she lives an active, symptom-free life, and takes no medications for multiple sclerosis.
