Today’s Americans are the heaviest people to ever exist on the planet Earth. More than 2/3s of all adults in the UDA are overweight or obese. Obesity among youth is also increasing at an alarming rate. There is compelling statistical evidence that being overweight or obese correlates with increased risk or diabetes, high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease, stroke, cancer, degenerative joint disease, chronic pain, loss of energy and vitality and death from all causes. People with above normal body weight suffer more and die younger than do people that maintain a healthy muscular weight. We address achieving and maintaining a healthy weight from a holistic perspective, taking into account hormonal health, gut ecology, immune system, nutritional status and successful and unsuccessful previous efforts and lifestyle factors. We know that there is not one method of weight loss that works for everyone, so we employ a variety of tools and techniques to help you achieve and maintain a healthy weight.
