Dear Patients and Friends,
It’s hot outside. At least it is to me. I was thinking about what I was going to write about today in this newsletter, and finally, after some sleepless nights, I finally came up with this winning thought. How about telling you how to celebrate August, the whole month long with a few of the offbeat holidays. Here’s a friendly list I’ve come up with:
August 1: Girlfriend’s Day. …
August 2: National Mustard Day. …
August 3: Sisters Day. …
August 4: Single Working Women’s Day. …
August 5: National Underwear Day. …
August 8: Happiness Happens Day. …
August 9: VIP Day. …
August 12: Vinyl Record Day.
Last month I reviewed some of our special products to support your health and assist in weight loss. This month, I will concentrate on some very special anti-aging crèmes to help “turn the clock back” on aging. After 35, your body starts to change. Both men and women experience a change in their hormone production and levels. We see our bodies shift from lean and muscular to rounder with more fat deposits on our hips, thighs, arms and worst of all, our belly. Belly fat is especially dangerous because that is a major risk factor in heart attacks and obesity related diseases, such as diabetes and cancer. Remember when you could eat anything and not gain a pound? Women start to experience peri- menopausal symptoms such as hot flashes, changes in their periods, headaches, etc. Men see their muscles start o change from more well defined to less toned and see their waistline expand. Even losing weight doesn’t particularly eliminate that stubborn belly fat.
These natural hormone crèmes are plant based and bio-identical to your own body hormones. They are completely natural, paraben and fragrance free and never tested on animals. Since they are low level and used externally, they are much safer than medical prescription hormones and do not have the side effects seen with artificial, medical hormones.
Women’s Youth Enhancement Crèmes: DHEA is the most abundant hormone in the body and peaks around the age of 20. Studies show it decreases by as much as 50% by age 40 and DHEA loss can result in wide reaching hormone imbalances. This specific formula of DHEA crème includes homeopathic and herbal extract ingredients for the most powerful synergistic complex available.
Men’s Youth Enhancement Crèmes: Testosterone is required for a strong libido, regulating and burning fat, maintaining good muscle mass, increased energy, good bone density, regulation of blood sugar and blood pressure as well as preventing depression. This specific formula includes homeopathic ingredients combined with triple strength herbal extracts for the most powerful synergistic complex available in this concentration.
HGH Crème: HGH (Somatropin) is secreted by the pituitary gland, affecting almost every living tissue and is directly responsible for stimulating tissue repair, cell replacement and brain function. HGH promotes fat burning while increasing muscle mass, restoring skin thickness, elasticity, smoothing wrinkles, rejuvenating hair, promoting better seep and improving sexual performance. HGH has homeopathic ingredients combined with triple strength herbal extracts for the most synergistic complex available. Paraben and fragrance free.
Progesterone Crème: This is a 2% micronized all natural progesterone crème. Soy free progesterone which helps relieve PMS, protection from benign growths and preventing blood clots, and many other peri and post menopausal symptoms. Paraben and fragrance free.
B12 Crème: Absorption of B12 orally is very poor. Through a topical liposome carrier, 600mcg of B12 (methylcobalamin) provides a highly absorbable B12 which is equivalent to taking 5000mcg of oral B12. Paraben and fragrance free.
Vit D3 Crème: There are several forms of vitamin D. However, vitamin D3 is the only natural form and preferred form. It is also more absorbable in a crème form. Vitamin D deficiency, especially in the Northeast, is very common. Deficiency can lead to everything from balance issues to frequent sinus infections. Each ½ pump delivers 2,000 IU of vitamin D3.
The #1 Reason People Fail to Lose Weight
by Josh Marion
I write this to you today as I sit here eating a sandwich. You see, I respect my waistline and I don’t want to expand it rapidly with the likes of heavily breaded, sugar laden sandwiches, okay? (I use high protein, low carbohydrate wraps made with quinoa and other low gluten wheat alternative grains). Unfortunately, 49% of Americans eat at least one sandwich per day, and believe it or not, many good folks in this great country are consuming MULTIPLE sandwiches per day… nothing short of a travesty.
Fact is, sandwiches are really bad news for your fat loss efforts and for two primary reasons:
1. Processed wheat. Processed wheat is probably the biggest dietary contributor to America’s obesity problem and the contents of a sandwich lies between two grand slices of it.
But what about “healthy” whole wheat bread? That HAS to be good for you. Nope, think again. Despite having more fiber than its “white” counterpart, 2 slices of whole wheat bread raise blood sugar far higher than a sugar-sweetened soda or even a sugary candy bar. This is because the wheat of today is nothing like the wheat of generations ago, having been genetically modified by the food industry, mutated, and exposed to the likes of industrial toxins and radiation to force an unnatural higher yield at the expense of your health.
2. High-fat and/or high-sugar, high-calorie sauces. Whether its mayonnaise, thousand island dressing, garlic aioli, BBQ sauce, or some other sort of “special sauce”, these high calorie sauces further bombard your blood stream with more sugar and fat, throwing your fat-storing hormone, insulin, into overdrive.
Any way you slice it (pun intended), most sandwiches are your waistline’s worst nightmare. Although convenient, there are much better, just-as-delicious options for your belly, such as a cheese-smothered grass fed beef burger patty topped with a fried egg — yum! Just remember to ditch the bread and you’ll be A-OK.
You’ve heard about the risks of being overweight (Diabetes, Cancer, Heart disease) but you still don’t know what to do???……
So what can you do about it? Try a prepackaged Medi-Fast or Weight Watcher’s type diet? Well you will lose weight. BUT- you will still be eating processed foods, sugars, diet sodas and many other unhealthy things. It isn’t just about weight loss. It is about cleaning out your body toxins and losing fat, not muscle and organ tissue. It is about learning new habits to help maintain your hard won weight loss. Most people will regain their weight and then some, from these so called diets.
Combining the following two programs is an unbeatable combination. Lose weight quickly and efficiently. Lose weight in a healthy way. Lose fat where you decide and need to: Belly, Arms, Buttock, thighs or face.
I have a metabolic weight loss program designed to help you lose weight safely and quickly. Our patient’s routinely lose about a pound per day without starving. It concentrates on fat loss, not muscle or organ loss and increases your energy levels. You are taught to eat real food, not prepackaged meals and you are weaned off the need for “sweet” thus eliminating your addictive need for sugars (a major point of sabotaging permanent weight loss).
Contour Light Therapy
Imagine laying down, spending 30 minutes relaxing, then getting up and finding out you’ve lost an inch or so around your waist. Our patients have done this time and again in their introductory session. The Contour Light Program blends science and physiology to allow you get healthier and lose inches off of those hard to reach places like the waist, belly, chin, thighs and arms. The Contour Light Fat Loss Program treats all the areas on the body that are resistant to diet and exercise. Specific wavelengths of light stimulate fat cells to release their fat. You then metabolize the fat and eliminate fat through the lymphatic system. We have even added whole body vibration to this program to make this easy and immediate.
For current patients we have a special offer: Your intro visit to try the LED FAT LOSS TECNOLOGY is FREE ($125 Value). If you love the results, I have special patient discounted packages just for you! This is an exclusive offer. Only for our regular active patients. Others will have to pay $57 for the introductory session. This has to be a limited offer so first come first serve. It may be withdrawn at anytime.

~ THREE Ways to Stay Healthy ~
Here are 3 healthy behaviors that can go a long way toward improving your health and lowering your risk of heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and osteoporosis. And they’re not as complicated as you might think. Choose one behavior below to start with. Once you’ve got that one down, move on to the others. I have more, but three is a good starting point.
- Maintain a Healthy Weight
Keeping your weight in check is often easier said than done, but a few simple tips can help. First off, if you’re overweight, focus initially on not gaining any more weight. This by itself can improve your health. Then, when you’re ready, try to take off some extra pounds for an even greater health boost, call me at the office.
- Integrate physical activity and movement into your life.
- Eat a diet rich in fruits, vegetables and whole grains.
- Choose smaller portions and eat more slowly.
- Limit children’s TV and computer time.
- Encourage healthy snacking on fruits and vegetables.
- Encourage activity during free time.
- Exercise & Get Adjusted Regularly
Few things are as good for you as regular physical activity and adjustments. While it can be hard to find the time, it’s important to fit in at least 30 minutes of activity every day. More is even better, but any amount is better than none. Make sure you make your appointments here at the office as well.
- Choose activities you enjoy. Many things count as exercise, including walking, gardening and dancing.
- Make exercise a habit by setting aside the same time for it each day. Try going to the gym at lunchtime or taking a walk regularly after dinner.
- Stay motivated by exercising with someone.
- Don’t Smoke
You’ve heard it before: If you smoke, quitting is absolutely the best thing you can do for your health. Yes, it’s hard, but it’s also far from impossible. More than 1,000 Americans stop SMOKING… for good… every day. If you smoke you can do it too.
- Keep trying! It often takes six or seven tries before you quit for good.
- Talk to a health-care provider for help. We think our services should be at the top of your list of health care providers.
- Join a quit-smoking program. Your workplace or health plan may offer one.
- Try to quit as soon as possible. If you smoke, your children will be more likely to smoke.
- Don’t smoke in the house or car. If kids breathe in your smoke, they may have a higher risk of breathing problems and lung cancer.
- When appropriate, talk to your kids about the dangers of smoking and chewing tobacco. A health-care professional or school counselor can help.
Enjoy. Solutions available upon request.
