You Can Actually Have The Beautiful Body You Want!!

November 2, 2018

If you’re like most people, you probably look at yourself in the mirror on occasion and think, “Oh Boy… I need to lose some weight!” Well, you’re not alone. Most people when they look in the mirror see some or many of their own flaws. When you focus on your body and your weight, few people feel perfect. Few of us like our own image and most want to lose weight, get fit and look better.

October 30, 2018

As a physician, women confide in me all the time. Other than their closest friends, women tell their doctors’ things they wouldn’t tell anyone else. I don’t believe I break any confidence in writing here how emotionally and personally painful most women find cellulite.

While it might seem like medical weight loss and the HCG diet are a new fads, the fact is HCG and the accompanying medically supervised plan has been around since the 1950’s. Dr. A.T.W. Simeons developed the diet through over 40 years of research in helping extremely obese patients return to safer weight levels. HCG(Human chorionic gonadotropin) is a natural hormone that your body produces. It’s associated with pregnancy, but also helps to reduce appetite and curb hunger. HCG is FDA approved to treat other health conditions, but many physicians prescribe it as part of a safe, medical weight loss... View Article

September 25, 2018

Stress has always been a part of life. Our adrenal system was designed for extreme survival situations like, being chased by a predator. You’ve probably heard this described as “flight or fight” reactions. These days the kind of stress we experience has changed and occurs more frequently due to our fast-paced lives. Over time, that means we’re responding as if we’re about to be eaten by a wild animal multiple times a day. Adrenal fatigue is thought to be the result of this response.
