Pat Tokuyama, Pharm.D., BCPS is a pharmacist by training and also a board certified pharmacotherapy specialist.
After working over 18 years in the healthcare industry, he’s come to understand the impact of food can have on health.
It’s this background that’s led him to where he is today. With several Japanese cookbooks and cooking programs created to empower you to eat a healthier more balanced diet with Japanese food.
He believes that with a balanced diet AND regular exercise, it IS possible to get off or reduce reliance on certain prescription medications or avoid taking them all together.
Having significant family history of cancer, diabetes, and heart disease, it’s a personal goal he himself sets out to accomplish each day – to never have to take prescription medications for chronic diseases like high blood pressure, high cholesterol or diabetes.
If he can do it, you can do it too!
Pat continues to regularly create videos and share his love of Japanese cuisine through his Youtube channel. He began to focus on video to help demystify Japanese food and make it simple and more accessible for home cooks and foodies to recreate in their own kitchen.
The one thing that was missing?
And so the Japanese Cooking Club was born!
He enjoys bringing people of different backgrounds together with food. And he believes that when together, we can all learn something from each other.
So this Cooking Club isn’t so much just about showing people a new way of cooking Japanese food, but also having a good time and a safe space where like-minded people can go to for support and connect with each other.
The Japanese Cooking club is the newest way that he helps to empower you to take more control of your health, while also combining two of his passions – food and helping you learn, grow and ensure your longevity!
