The International Academy


Prevention, Performance and Longevity


Prevention is the Cure - Lifestyle is our Medicine


We want to show you a model of healthcare delivery that will change your life and the quality of it for the betterment of you, your family and patients.

IAPPL Certified Providers  have the utmost integrity."  The first primary concerns are logically:

  • Do you have a high level of health assurance - 'are you a inhospitable place for disease to occur?' 
  • Are you as a provider a credible picture of health?
  •  Are you confident you walk the walk of personal health - so to better teach it?
  • Do you know how to screen, examine, educate and have a financially stress free Lifestyle Medicine practice?

Your approach to Healthcare and Lifestyle will change when you explore with us, the implications of a new way to practice outlined below.


An objective, quantifiable method of patient care that carefully evaluates a patient's future health - also identifying pathology years in advance of normal medical detection.

When you have the practice tools, insights and guidance protocols all backed by solid evidence-backed science, to alter a patient's future - you have less stress and more enjoyment in practice.

Improving the risk profiles of those already afflicted with chronic degeneration by the application of the Lifestyle Medicine is possibble from the arsenal of Lifestyle Medicine.

By you yourself  being in your best possible shape of your life (mental, physical and metabolic) you have confidence in what you do and how you live.

NO ADVERTISING NECESSARY.  In our business,  professional influence from being authintic insures a lifetime of rewarding work. Word of mouth travels fast when people grasp the foundation of what you do and practice.

This is what Dr Patterson Stark has been doing for the last thirty-eight years and for the last four, teaching individual practitioners -one at a time, the healing arts of how to be personally healthy, financially secure and ultimately helping others by leaving a legacy of health and vitality to their clients.
