I started CardioMender, MD Weight Loss Specialists to help people take back control of their health and reverse their disease.  Last week was a particularly gratifying one.

As always this time of year, many of our patients returned from going on a cruise or vacation. I heard story after story of those who were thrilled because they lost weight. This stands in stark contrast to the average American who goes on a 1-week cruise and gains 7-10 pounds! These results are extremely gratifying because we emphasize to all of our patients, in order to lose the weight and keep it off, “you’ve got to live it!”TM

Vacationers were not the only ones loving our weight loss program.

A weight loss story that particularly touched me is from a middle age male with a 10-year history of Type-2 Diabetes, taking over 150 units of insulin every day – that’s a lot of insulin.

After 5 days on our weight loss program he was totally off insulin. He safely lost over 10 pounds his first week and did not struggle.

We did not add any additional diabetes medications, and his sugars were better controlled than they were before he began the program. The results were so dramatic that even he didn’t believe what had happened!

The reality is that until he came to our weight loss center, the medical profession had failed him. For years he had been followed by an endocrinologist, as well as other physicians. The results: over the years, he was placed on more and more medications, as his health progressively declined.

Despite our medical training, physicians often get caught up without reflecting upon the clinical outcomes of our practice; we simply accept. We fail to crosscheck our clinical outcomes with new ideas or forgotten concepts which, if looked at from an alternative perspective, can lead us down an alternative path.

Additionally, many health insurance companies do not cover medically supervised weight loss, so that option is not considered. Although all the scientific evidence is not available, our center’s results speak for themselves.

Our mission is to empower our patients with simply stated, evidenced based information and nutritional solutions, as well as provide the weight loss support to help achieve a true sustainable ‘cure’ for obesity, Type-2 diabetes, and metabolic syndrome. Our aim is to prevent future medical conditions, not to accept inadequate, archaic practices or medications as ‘solutions’, the likes of which often foster and perpetuate chronic disease states.

Our weight loss program teaches the consequences – addictive, hormonal, metabolic and psychological – of eating certain foods and how to eat in a way that promotes health.

Do you have a friend or a loved one that we can help lose weight and get healthy? Please tell them about your experience at CardioMender, MD or direct them to our website. We are happy to meet with them and if they choose not to join our weight loss program, there will be no charge.

Remember – to lose the weight – YOU’VE GOT TO LIVE IT!
