Healthy Start MD’s doctors have designed all of their programs around preventative health care, such as extensive cardiac-screening packages and thorough weight-loss initiatives. The cardiac screenings help asymptomatic people learn if they are at risk for developing serious health conditions, such as high cholesterol, diabetes, and strokes.
Led by a team of dietitians and behavioral therapists, the weight-loss program supplies each candidate with a coach who drafts sustainable lifestyle plans that incorporate proper nutrition and daily activity. Included in the program are personalized messages, daily-meal ideas, and visual workout instructions. The corporate-services department keeps your office fit and healthy by doling out preventative screenings and helping teach employees why it's wrong to feed their computer hot dogs.
Chiropractic care helped rehabilitate Dr. Joel Duchon, D.C. when he was in a car accident as a teenager. The experience inspired him to study the practice, earning his Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Texas Chiropractic College after graduating with a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology from University of Maryland, College Park. At Webster Laser Like Lipo, Dr. Duchon taps into his extensive training to administer services including peripheral neuropathy, which addresses numbness and tingling sensations, and spinal decompression therapy, which ameliorates spinal pain better than a WD-40 epidural.

Doctors and nurses at Physicians Weight Loss Centers guide width-whittling in medically supervised weight-loss programs. The programs give clients a jump-start on healthful eating and fitness habits, putting an end to diets composed solely of deep-fried wedding cakes. Diet counselors help clients reinvent their eating habits with the assistance of multivitamins and mineral tablets, which aim to suppress cravings for sugar while boosting metabolism. Vitamin-B12 and Vitamin Cocktail injections seek to increase energy and possible benefits also include strengthened concentration and a more chipper mood.
Some of the more intensive programs include complete doctor's exams, biometrics analyses, lab work, and EKGs. These programs can focus on the reduction of either carbohydrate or fat consumption.
RedCircle Personalized Weight Management, an Amerejuve sister company, uses seven components to help clients lose and keep off unwanted weight. The combination of these elements—a baseline assessment, cardiometabolic profiling, genetic profiling, meal-planning, personal training, metabolic supplements, and e-coaching—results in treatment plans customized to each client's metabolic rate and genetic profile. Rejecting a one-size-fits-all approach to slimming, RedCircle's staff creates detailed meal-plans and training strategies as individualized as the fingerprint of a snowflake.
Amerejuve's board-certified plastic surgeons are experts in an array of cosmetic treatments such as face lifts, tummy tucks, and liposuction. Other treatments include breast augmentation, which is the most popular cosmetic surgical procedure offered at Amerejuve. Prior to surgery, doctors walk each patient though their choices and answer any questions about the procedure, which is performed by a board-certified surgeon. Amerejuve boasts nine Houston-area locations, including a recently opened location on Gray Street.
Dr. Chris Doyle once had a patient come into Planet Health with an aching neck that would not quit. Everyday pain treatments, such as heat pads and ibuprofen, didn't make a difference, and a series of chiropractic adjustments with the doctor brought little relief. Realizing the true problem at hand, Dr. Doyle ordered custom orthotics to correct her flat feet, and within a week, the neck pain was gone.
Dr. Doyle acknowledges that most people see each part of the body in isolation, but people should instead see the body as an interconnected unit. An imbalance in one part affects another seemingly disparate part of the body. The spine is what connects the nervous system to the rest of the body, and when it is misaligned, it can affect the nerve impulses sent from that area, which in turn can affect the function of faraway organs and muscles. The general tenet of chiropractic care, he says, is that the body is fully capable of healing itself. His work just helps speed it along.
To this end, Planet Health’s services all focus on healing without the use of pharmaceuticals. Cold-laser therapy works to ameliorate inflammatory conditions, such as arthritis, tendonitis, and carpal tunnel syndrome. During chiropractic massages, muscles shed tension and toxins to increase circulation and flexibility. Acupuncture sessions reroute bodily energy without the need to implant traffic signals below the skin’s surface.
