Weight loss is really difficult for most people. People often have a perception that it is easy to lose weight and that they, unlike everyone else, find it hard. Actually, weight loss is very difficult to both achieve and maintain. Recent evidence shows that after weight loss, the body is permanently different, expending less calories with the same number of steps and using less energy when people are at rest. A well-structured approach, that merges focus on weight loss for period of time with strategies that will maintain the weight loss and a permanent change in lifestyle, have a best chance of improving health, decreasing risk of complications, and improving the overall quality of life.
Traditional Weight Loss Therapy: this is a lifestyle program. This program will help you lose weight in a way that improves your health and is helpful for any chronic conditions you already have. A “therapeutic lifestyle” means making choices every day that will enhance your health and help prevent diseases, enabling you to achieve a full, healthy life.

A lifestyle program is now recommended for individuals with many of the chronic conditions above, as well as those with other health problems such as:
- Stress-related factors
- Other hormone-related symptoms
- Conditions related to overweight/obesity
We implement traditional and natural medical treatments:
The path to optimal health begins with:
- Implementation of a healthy lifestyle
- Balancing eating habits and lowering calorie counts
- Regular physical activity, both strength training and aerobic
- Appropriate nutritional intake with condition-specific nutrients outlined
- Stress management for internal balance, including use of yoga and other movement treatments
Sometimes people do not realize that natural medicine requires multiple layers and resolute consistency. It is even more important to be consistent with natural treatments than with medications. Most medications that are FDA approved take at least 50% adherence to work. I would say that natural treatments may take upwards of 80% to work. I want to be your partner in implementing these strategies if they are appropriate for your medical condition.
You don’t have to go out alone when you want to lose weight! Eliminating the Endocrine factors, then focusing on sustainable and responsible weight loss with use of as many tools as necessary, is studied and well understood approach that can provide significant and lasting changes in weight and health.
