PLEASE NOTE: This is NOT a group meeting. Each of your visits is a one-on-one consultation with Dr. Marcantel to review your progress with the program, discuss ongoing weight-related health issues, and plan for future success with weight loss.

Why this program works:

1) Education about natural weight loss-The more knowledgeable a person is about nutrition and how food interacts with our bodies , the better they can understand and control how their body responds to the weight loss program. Be an active participant in your own health plan!
2) A personalized meal plan-Every person has different preferences and will be more compliant with a meal plan that is right for them. At the same time, there are some very definite “good” and “bad” foods for people who struggle with weight issues, and it’s important to know the difference.
3) Nutritional supplements or botanical treatments and IV therapy-Recent studies have shown these alternative therapies to be effective in increasing metabolism, decreasing blood pressure, lowering cholesterol, and decreasing blood sugars, thus reducing potential organ damage.
4) An ongoing monitoring and support program-A key to this natural weight loss program’s success is the accountability factor. We all tend to stick better with programs that hold us accountable to other people. Also, as the body changes in response to the program, it is essential that medications be monitored and adjusted for the patient’s well being.

Dr. Marcantel is committed to helping people who struggle with weight issues lose weight by learning to make healthier choices in their diets and lifestyles. By following the program, patients will get control of their eating habits and learn how to keep them under control through natural means. Many patients have not only lost weight, but significantly reduced or even eliminated medications (such as hypertension drugs) through the diet and lifestyle changes they will learn in this program.
