Hormones don't just power puberty—they can also cause weight gain. At The Health & Wellness Center, Dr. Eric Berg helps bring this phenomenon to light by crafting weight loss plans that shift the patient's focus away from small portions and exercise. Instead, Dr. Berg's diets center on what patients eat; some foods encourage fat-burning hormones, while others encourage fat-storing ones.
The best-selling author of The 7 Principles of Fat Burning, Dr. Berg has been featured on CBS, ABC, and in various fitness magazines for his unique and effective approach to weight loss. In practice for 25 years, he not only understands the hormonal mechanisms of weight loss, but also understands that it's personal. He and his team tailor their regimens to each client's body type and stats, which they measure with a high-tech monitor and never with educated guesses. The machine digitally reads the body's fat levels, metabolism rate, and other statistics that are relevant to weight loss and help the team create results for their patients.
Dr. Igor Schwartzman, who has studied and researched holistic medicine at Boston University and the Harvard School of Public Health, works to uphold the six principles of naturopathy at Whole Family Wellness Center. The pillars include embracing the healing power of nature, seeking out the root cause of each ailment, and teaching
patients how to prevent future illness. Though Dr. Schwartzman treats patients of all ages, his specialty lies in women's health, hormone imbalances, and infertility.
The clinic's two licensed acupuncturists, Kendra Ward and Amy Chitwood, have traveled around the globe cultivating a passion for alternative medicine. Their treatments help patients to overcome a variety of ailments and reduce stress after chaperoning bovine field trips to china shops. In the clinic's private rooms, soothed sighs drift amid eastern paper screens, statuettes, and rustling potted plants.
Though he's no stranger to modern medicine, Doctor of Chiropractic Eric Nicastro rarely reaches for pain or fever meds at the first sign of trouble. The doctor runs My Chiropractor PLLC with his wife and their two young sons and has a true enthusiasm for natural health—the Nicastro family even grows their own organic vegetables—so, it's not surprising that some of his personal ideologies carry over to his clinic. Whether treating children or adults, each appointment at My Chiropractor begins with a thorough initial interview and physical exam, which allow Dr. Nicastro to confirm that each patient is, indeed, a vertebrate. Afterward, Dr. Nicastro maps out a suitable treatment plan for their pain and discomfort. From there, he may perform a series of adjustments—something he’s been treating his own children with since birth—or prescribe trigger-point therapy or the HydroMassage bed.
