Chronic Diseases

Rates of chronic diseases like diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease and others are at all time highs. We can help you prevent and, in some cases, reverse these conditions.

treat the cause


Beyond the common chronic diseases listed below, eating well can improve your immediate quality of life including mental clarity, energy levels, balanced mood and good quality sleep. Some patients even find that they can decrease or eliminate medications that they have been prescribed for existing conditions because their new eating habits have addressed the root cause of these diseases.

Diabetes, Pre-diabetes

The wake-up call for many of our patients is a pre-diabetes or diabetes diagnosis from their primary care provider. We’re here to help you make corrections to live a longer and more active life with improved nutrition and weight loss. Some patients find that with weight loss, nutrition changes and our support, they can reduce medications and bring their Hemoglobin A1c readings back into the normal range.

High Blood Pressure

The root cause of weight gain often overlaps with the root cause of high blood pressure. When you address that root cause you will lose weight AND bring elevated blood pressure nicely down into the normal range. Lose weight while preventing and reversing disease at the same time. A win-win!

Frequently Asked Questions

Are there any contracts to sign?

No, there is no long term contract to sign. This is a month to month program with lots of flexibility. Each month, you can decide if you want to continue to get support. Typically, people come in for 3-12 months depending on what their goals are and how quickly they meet them. Please note that in order to refill your prescription each month you do need to meet with the doctor.

Does insurance cover the program?

No, we do not accept any insurance nor do we bill insurance. However, in many cases you can use your HSA/FLEX account. Most HSA/FLEX cards are accepted however in some cases it is necessary to submit additional paperwork for reimbursement which we are happy to provide.

Do I have to take the medication to be a part of your program?

No, medication is optional and not everyone is a candidate for a prescription. Many people do the program successfully without the need for medication. You will be able to discuss your options in depth with the doctor during your appointment. Our Free Evaluation is an opportunity to get answers to some basic questions in advance.

If I have high blood pressure or diabetes, can I do your program? or use your medications?

You can absolutely participate in the program. In fact, our services are often very helpful in improving your health and addressing the root cause of these conditions. Many patients have been able to decrease or discontinue medications that they take for high blood pressure or diabetes as they lose weight and get healthy. 
However, we do have to get a healthy blood pressure reading in order to prescribe the appetite suppressant. If you are currently taking medication for high blood pressure you can take the appetite suppressant as long as your blood pressure is well controlled by your medication.

Do you take walk-ins or do I have to have a scheduled appointment?

Walk-ins are always welcome. However, if you intend to see the doctor we do recommend that you make an appointment as there is the potential that the schedule is completely booked. You can always check the doctor's availability that day by looking at our schedule online or calling in advance.

Do I have to see the doctor to get a refill of the prescription weight loss medication?

Yes. In order to refill your prescription each month you do need to meet with the doctor.
