What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Our doctors specialize in a radically new approach to safe, natural and permanent weight loss. Traditional weight loss focuses on yo-yo diets, extreme exercise, dangerous drugs and risky surgery which has failed miserably over the past 40 years as evidenced by the fact that metabolic syndrome, insulin resistance, obesity and diabetes are WORSE today than two generations ago! Instead, we apply principles in the emerging field of Functional medicine, also known as Lifestyle or Nutritional Medicine - which answers the question "What are the underlying CAUSES of your body's systems being out of balance?" To answer that question, we use advanced metabolic testing that NO OTHER doctors use to discover these hidden causes of the obesity epidemic, namely, TOXICITY, INFLAMMATION, NUTRITIONAL DEFICIENCIES, HORMONAL IMBALANCES AND STRESS.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Our passion is teaching people the principles of health and wellness. So when we discovered the life-changing principles of Functional Medicine we knew we had the information to help our community with one of the leading causes of morbidity and mortality in the United States, the epidemic of stubborn weight loss resistance, obesity and diabetes. More importantly, we knew that it was our responsibility to teach these lifestyle solutions because almost no other healthcare practitioner in our area was doing so. Knowing that we had advanced technology to get to the ROOT CAUSES of the problem, instead of merely treating the symptoms of stubborn fat was the inspiration we needed to launch our wellness center.
What do you love most about your job?
We are perceived as health and wellness experts and we love being the trusted authority in our community. We love the creativity that comes with being a "disease detective" and creating personalized, doctor-supervised programs USING TOOLS THAT OTHER DOCTORS DO NOT HAVE, namely advanced laboratory testing such as ADVANCED blood work, STRESS HORMONE (CORTISOL- THE BELLY FAT HORMONE) panels and other METABOLIC evaluations. Helping people on their healing journey, especially when everything else has failed, is a privilege and a source of both great pride and humility.
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer?
Our patients lose weight, AVERAGING 20-35 POUNDS THE FIRST 6-8 WEEKS, usually without exercise. They increase their energy levels, reduce and eliminate their need for medications, enjoy deep, restful sleep for the first time in years, and experience greater self-esteem. Therefore, the best, and most common, response we've received from our clients is simply, "You have totally transformed my life - I am happier and healthier than I ever imagined I could be!"
