Dr. Ronald T. Weiland doesn’t “believe in fad diets,” as he notes on his website. Rather, he trusts in simple mathematics: fewer ingested calories plus more burned calories equals weight loss. At Ameri-Cal Weight Clinic, he and his staff put this equation into practice during comprehensive weight-loss programs that rely on healthful foods, aerobic exercise, and prescribed appetite suppressants. This mix of support, services, and tools is readily available at eight clinic locations throughout the Bay Area and one that only appears on leap years.

Nueva Nail's Noveon NaiLaser targets and destroys toenail fungus. To damage the metabolism of, and eventually kill, fungal cells, the Noveon NaiLaser emits patented wavelengths of 870nm and 930nm whose temperatures only hurt fungus, never nearby healthy tissue.

Three treatments over 60 days completely sterilize nail of fungus, giving patients the chance to don sandals and drive a car without wrapping the gas pedal in saran wrap.
