The physicians at Advanced Medical Weight Loss & Wellness Centers guide patients toward fitter physiques and long-term health during a four-week weight-loss program. Doctors begin with a 30-minute exam to assess metabolism, eating habits, and blinks-per-minute rate to tailor the program to individual needs and goals. After an initial menu counseling session, patients will be asked to attend weekly 20- to 30-minute follow-up appointments to gauge their progress. Throughout the program, foes of fat stop by once a week for a fat-burning Lipoplex injection and a joyous fat-cell funeral service. Brimming with B5, B6, and B12 vitamins, the Lipoplex shots melt away layers of flab by speeding up sluggish metabolisms. Once the four-week program is over, patients can use a $150 gift certificate toward any of Advanced Medical Weight Loss & Wellness Centers' weight-loss programs that run 12 weeks or longer.

The IACT-approved colon therapists at Healing Waters Institute help patients to flush impurities and roadblocks from inner highways with gentle LIBBE open-system hydrotherapy technology. During the private one-hour treatment, the colon owner dons a modesty gown and painlessly introduces a very small tube about a half-inch into the foyer of the rectum. Using the gentle power of gravity, warm water flows in, irrigating the ascending and descending colon to ferry away fecal matter, toxins, and mistakenly consumed artificial fruit. Colonics may help relieve ailments such as constipation, diverticulitis, and hemorrhoids, but they should not be practiced by pregnant women in their first trimester, sufferers of Crohn's disease, or those with suede bowels that have not been waterproofed.
Healing the structural, chemical, and emotional ailments of one person can be as difficult as completing a puzzle with your kid brother who likes to eat the pieces. But at Renaissance Health Centre, doctors Pfau, Mongie, and Davidson address this trio of wellness factors, personalizing health-care plans that heal the whole person. The practice helps put bodies back into balance through a range of services including the NUCCA chiropractic technique. The technique uses gentle, low force to align the body without the sounds of popping and cracking. Adding even more comfort to the chiropractic experience, the center's garden invites patients to stroll amongst flourishing palm trees, blossoming roses, and a stone-lined pond that trades wishes for updates on its favorite soap operas.
Miracle Image's board-certified physicians and medically trained staff rejuvenate tired visages with soothing spa treatments. In a 40-minute session, an IPL photofacial's rays can smooth out fine lines and reduce discoloration from sun damage, aging, or paintball accidents (a $400 value). Then satisfied skin sacks can return three to four weeks later for a follow-up alpha-beta peel which whisks away upper layers of epidermis to reveal suppler skin lurking just beneath the surface, like a freshly exfoliated tiger shark (an $85 value). The second treatment builds on the success of the first, multiplying softness dividends for a refreshing moisture payoff.
