Dr. Cate specializes in retraining metabolism to optimize genetic potential using traditional foods. She works with the Los Angeles Lakers and maintains a private practice in Napa, CA.

As a Family Medicine physician practicing in Hawaii, she recognized the limitations of pharmaceutical intervention and created a dietary program based on the culinary traditions shared by all her healthiest, longest-lived patients. These elements, which she calls The Four Pillars of World Cuisine, became the basis of her first book.

In 2010, she spearheaded T.R.I.M. (Treatment to Reverse Inflammatory Metabolism), a 12-week program that uses food as medicine to treat patients with diabetes, overweight, cancer and other aspects of metabolic imbalance. She has lectured across the country and the Pacific and been featured in the (to be released) documentary film Doctored, Consumers Digest, Better Homes and Gardens, Your Health Matters (WKXL), and numerous websites, online, and traditional media radio/TV shows including DrLoRadio, Underground Wellness, The Food Rightʼs Hour and LivinLaVidaLowCarb with Jimmy Moore.

Dr. Cate has authored two books: Deep Nutrition, Why Your Genes Need Traditional Food and Food Rules, A Doctor's Guide to Healthy Eating and she blogs regularly at DrCate.com
