Started as a single Newport Beach clinic in 1971, Lindora was the brainchild of Dr. Marshall Stamper, who was motivated by the unfortunate loss of his mother due to weight-related complications. Now, more than 40 years later, Lindora's weight-loss programs continue to bestow humanoids with a plethora of personalized nutrition plans and private one-on-one health consultations. At more than 40 Southern California locations, medically trained teams of health-care professionals guide patients through lab work, health assessments, and exams to discern the most efficient trajectory into better health. Patients receive encouragement to adjust their lifestyle and behavior, and bellies stay buoyed by nutrition support and menu plans that spotlight fresh, balanced meals.
Long-term weight maintenance is the goal of the clinic's medically-based programs, which means patients needn't worry about extra pounds boomeranging back into their lives like a persistent pet chinchilla. Check the FAQs page here for more information about Lindora's approach to weight loss.

RestoredHealth draws its inspiration from Dr. Weston Price, an early 1900s-era dentist who traversed the globe in search of natural ways to promote health. He found that people who adhere to primitive diets high in proteins, vegetables, and soaked grains live healthier and remain stronger than those who consume lots of manmade products, such as white sugar and refined vegetable oils. It is with this knowledge that RestoredHealth approaches its product line, infusing it with minerals, vitamins, and natural enzymes to help restore the health of its clients.
