What You'll Get
Humans maintain their bodies for the same reasons they maintain their houses: to keep the neighbors friendly and to disguise the fact that an alien lives inside them. Beam a beautiful life force through your exterior with today’s Groupon: for $79, you get four lipotropic B12 injections with a comprehensive weight-loss program at MiBaSo in Bay Harbor Islands (a $285 value).
Guided by acupuncturist Dr. Ahuva Gamliel, MiBaSo’s holistic oasis spruces up lackluster bone casings through natural treatments such as alternative medicine, homeopathy, and cosmetic procedures. Instead of promising an alarmingly swift and unsustainable weight-loss regimen, MiBaSo's weight-loss program is designed to guide patients onto a healthier lifestyle track. An initial consultation (a $129 value) assesses the root of the extra weight—whether from thyroid or appetite problems or the stone-woven sweater grandma knitted for your last birthday—and enables the weight-loss wizards at MiBaSo to tailor a personal plan. Each patient receives individualized instruction on at-home exercise, an ideal eating plan complete with nutritional requirements, and a supplement regimen to steer patients towards a slimmer and holistically healthier body.
As sustained weight loss can be a tiring prospect akin to teaching excitable puppies how to mediate, four energizing B12 injections (a $156 value) supply vivacity and motivation to help keep up with fat-shaving homework and stay physically active. The water-soluble vitamin broadcasts its pep talk throughout the body's circulatory system for about three days. Each injection is delivered via acu-points mapped by the lore of traditional Chinese medicine, such as the inside of the knee, but patients may request other sites. Because the weight-loss program is customized completely to the individual, each person will need a different cadre of supplements not included with this Groupon, usually all blended from natural ingredients and including a fat-suppressing formula.

While working a cruise ship, holistic doctor and acupuncturist Ahuva Gamliel treated a passenger complaining of digestive issues. Impressed by how fast she found relief, the patient said she would send her husband so that Gamliel could treat his shoulder pain. But the woman added, "My husband is not going to tell you this, but he has erectile dysfunction and I want you to treat him for it." Noticing the man didn't mention erectile dysfunction on his intake form, Gamliel proceeded to treat him for it anyway, along with tending to his shoulder. A few days later, the woman stopped by and said, "What did you do to him? I feel like we are on our second honeymoon." Dr. Gamliel thrives on hearing such patient testimonials. Knowing since she was 5 years old that she would become a doctor, Gamliel began working as a phlebotomist in high school. But her first experiences with conventional medicine—which she recalls as "cold, callous, and impersonal"—left her disenchanted. After completing undergraduate study in psychobiology, Gamliel discovered the field of natural medicine and went on to earn a doctorate in naturopathic medicine and acupuncture from Bastyr University. Today, Gamliel pursues her vision of bringing natural healthcare to the masses through MiBaSo, an acronym for mind, body, and soul. Gamliel hopes to turn MiBaSo into a franchised, membership-based practice that increases the visibility, accessibility, and affordability of natural medicine.
