Our founding story

Our CEO, Murti Hussain, saw the power of lifestyle medicine when he helped his mother heal her chronic diseases.

We believe that optimal health can be achieved with simple lifestyle changes

Less Medications

While medications are of-course sometimes needed and useful, we generally believe in methods that let the body heal naturally.

Affordable for All

We’re structuring Mora to be available to as many people as possible. It takes an immense amount of work to be in-network with so many insurance companies but we're willing to do it so our services are affordable.


For everything we advocate, we can (and will) point to robust research. We focus on what the research says, not the dogma.
