Hello, I'm Dr. Eno Nsima-ObotI am happy you are here!


I am passionate about helping people, particularly women over fifty, optimize their health and wellbeing so that they can THRIVE and fulfill their purpose well into their GOLDEN YEARS.


A little bit about me: I was born in London, UK, and was raised in Eastern Nigeria in a coastal town called Calabar. I graduated as one of the youngest and top ten medical students from the University of Calabar in 1987. I relocated to the United States  in 1991 and completed residency training in Brooklyn, NY in 1996. I became board-certified in Internal Medicine in 1996. In 1998 I moved to the Chicagoland area and have since called this home.

I am a lifelong learner and have always been passionate about exploring and sharing ways to create and promote a balanced and healthy lifestyle.

I yearned to spend more time with my patients, explaining their health to them, creating clarity and understanding, and sharing ways to better manage or prevent disease with them. Also, how our state of mind can affect our overall well-being.

Because of this, I completed training as a professional life coach in 2010.

I feel coaching can be transformative tool.

I realized that I needed to broaden my toolbox when it came to offering lifestyle and integrative strategies to optimize health and wellbeing as well as address chronic disease. This personal desire led me to discover the Institute of Functional Medicine (IFM) in 2018.

I still recall sitting in the conference room in San Diego, California, delighted to find my tribe finally. I completed a very intense certification program in 2019.

All these experiences have culminated in creating THRIVE Functional Health.

Our mission at Thrive is to help our clients develop healthy and wholesome lives where we grow, prosper, and flourish. We focus on determining the root cause of dis-ease rather than just treating symptoms.

My particular focus is teaching people how to optimize their metabolic health. Optimal metabolic health is about having ideal levels of blood sugar, triglycerides, high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol, blood pressure, and waist circumference, without using medications.Only 12% of Americans are believed to be metabolically healthy. So that leaves a large number of us who need to work on our metabolic health.

These factors put us at an increased risk for conditions such as type 2 diabetes, stroke, heart disease, chronic kidney disease, fatty liver disease, dementia and certain cancers to name a few.

When I am not working with clients and patients, you can find me on my Peloton® bike or treadmill, strength training. I also enjoy daily outdoor walks with my Morkie -Jake, long walks in nature, power yoga, and spiritual and metaphysical studies.

Here are the ways you can work with me:

As a Certified Functional Medicine Practitioner

-Many of you may have landed on this site because you are seeking a  functional medicine practitioner in order to help you determine the root cause of what it is that is causing dis-ease or imbalances in your life.  I believe that functional medicine is the way that medicine should be practiced. And so I bring it to the center of my interactions with clients.


Online Courses & Membership Programs

You can learn from the comfort of your home. I have created a course that highlights the importance of controlling our blood sugars even before we get diabetes, which you can take advantage of right now.

You can buy my book

- Yes, I am an author. I wrote a book called "Dr. Eno's A-to-Z Guide to Thriving with Type 2 Diabetes". It was specifically for patients diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes. I found that this can be a life-altering diagnosis and that patients instinctively predicted the worst outcomes with a diagnosis of type 2 diabetes. This book was written to give people hope. It is written in an easy-to-understand format using the letter of the alphabet to highlight different aspects of diabetes care.


As you can see there's something for everyone.

I've designed this space as a one-stop shop so you can get a bird' s-eye view of all I have to offer. Peruse at your leisure. Come back again and again.

Thrive on!
