Westman and Stephen D. To which I laughed and said how funny that was. I went on to explain a point she obviously did not know: That's extremely funny that anyone would brag about that claim as being a badge of honor! Most people have no clue what FDA standards are in place regarding weight loss! Our Simeons patients lose 20 to 40 pounds in a typical 40 day period. When adding up the initial evaluation costs, follow-up visits and follow-up lab tests as well as medication, this 'new' program for 'Qnexa' is about 4 times more expensive and way more time consuming than a 40 day cycle for the Simeons Protocol.
Worse, the weight loss drug does not change a person's relationship to food and will likely cause a person to regain the weight. It also teaches people that 'the pill' causes the loss.
Our patients lose weight and gain personal insight and stregnth of character. As they'd say down South, the Simeons Protocol is mo' better! Please read our section on: In this section we review: We also discuss a very hopeful treatment for type 2 diabetes. Having treated several diabetics with 'The Main Event' therapy we've had many stop needing medication or needing much less medication after losing 50 or more pounds.
Do some reading of our diabetic section and make a date to bring your man in to see us. Maybe you'll want to shed a few pounds and make it a 'couples' activity. Guys tend to do better when they have support of their mate. On September 15th the Food and Drug Advisory Board met to determine the fate of the 'new' diet pill, sibutramine, brand name Meridia. Only having been approved in , we've had many patients ask for us to prescribe this medication to control hunger.
Meridia is now safely OFF the market due to specific harm it posed. Not once have we prescribed Merida. They plastered ads on TV and magazines telling prople how much they 'need' Meridia. They didn't mention the major problem they discovered in their research study. Once their study passed the FDA approval, they could care less. They also never mention, that to get FDA approval, they had to document a 6 pound weight loss over a 1 year timeframe.
We never prescribed Meridia because we read the studies, and we do care! Our patients typically lose 6 pounds in one week. Simeons treated over , people, safely, with this weight loss protocol. The protocol is simple yet it is VERY exact, and when followed with the precision demanded, patients get safe, wonderful results.
The Simeons Weight Loss Protocol has proven wonderful results typically a 20 to 40 pound weight loss in 40 days and it has proven safe for over 1, patients, month after month, since January at Adobe.
Some people have gained 5 to 10 pounds over the holidays, being 'jolly'. What's really 'jolly' is losing pounds of excess weight and feeling Great! Nothing feels as great as success! Losing pounds is huge! Feeling the weight off your body and looking years younger--Priceless!
Take that first step: In a study, published in the Annals of Internal Medicine, August Most of our patients, following this low carb intake, have better blood sugar readings, better cholesterol levels, better blood pressure and less fatigue, then people on low fat diets and our patients are consistently maintaining loss by avoiding carbs. High fructose corn syrup is the poster child for all that's wrong with carbs and large amounts of artificial carbs and sweeteners, which previously never existed in nature in such large quantity.
This high fructose 'mess'is 'Big Agra' corporate farms at their worst, making money at the expense of American's health and welfare. Living longer and while alive, living healthier- that's the real deal! In a study from September 30th , in the British Medical Journal regarding loss of kidney function, which happens when people become overweight, have high blood pressure, and diabetes a group of , people were looked at.
People who are overweight are much more likely to be or to become diabetic and to develop hypertension. For every 30 pounds a person is overweight they have 50 miles of blood vessels to support that fat. These miles of extra blood vessels require a higher blood pressure to push the blood the extra 50 or or miles to support the 30, 60, or 90 pounds of fat some people carry around.
That brings us to our next point. You have two choices when it comes to your health and wellness: Having your blood presure rise because you're carrying around too much weight: Or you could have a deliberate and smart plan to get yourself in better shape, avoid the heart attack, not have a stroke and never worry about being on dialysis every other day for life!
Our average patient loses 20 to 40 pounds over a 40 day treatment period. Please call and schedule an appointment today: You'll feel and look decades younger! You can do this!
From the British medical journal, Lancet, a worldwide study of 3, patients, from 22 countries, from 6 continents; both developing and developed countries included, confirm many long standing wise and safe practices which both prevent stroke and heart attack. In other words, if the blood clot goes to the heart, or if it goes to the brain, tissue damage occurs. It's the same process and involves the same risk factors. Neuroimaging was performed to determine the type of stroke: Modifiable risk factors were identified to prevent stroke: You can, and need to make some very smart choices and take better care of yourself this year.
You deserve to feel better and your family needs you to be around and to be in better shape. Time to come in for that 'check-up' you've wanted to get done! Gout is a genetic disorder whereby a person can not break down a specific protein found in many foods: Typically found in foods such as sardines, liver, and mushrooms, it is also present in many common foods including beer.
In fact, drinking 2 or more beers doubles the risk of developing a painful gout attack. By not being able to break down this protein into urea for elimination into urine and making water from hydrogen atoms H and oxygen atoms O as in H2O: The uric acid will inflame blood vessel walls and greatly increases the chance of heart failure and heart attack.
In a study from the Archives of Internal Medicine, August 9th , an even greater risk of death for persons with Heart Failure was confirmed. It's clear as can be: Uric Acid Gout is a seperate and controllable risk factor for death from heart attack. What's sad is some folks do not seek care for this easy to identify and easy to treat condition.
Part of our work-up for treating people with the Simeons Protocol Weight Loss Program is to check uric acid and to immediately start treatment. Doctor ATW Simeons, seventy years ago, figured out this important risk decades before this study was done. He would treat the condition before and after his program, realizing 7 decades ago the risks the condition posed.
Join us for the Simeons Weight Loss Program: We know there's a higher risk for developing a heart attack and for developing a stroke from having gout. It would be in the best interest of the country, from a health standpoint, to recognize high fructose corn syrup is basically a poison which needs to be taken off the market.
Until we can get FDA regulators to help keep Americans healthier: Vote with your dollars and your hands- don't buy sodas or juices with this toxic sweetener.
Together we can do better! Reported in San Diego, California, at the Obesity Symposium, in a Poster Session, the diabetic drug Victoza showed a consistent weight loss over a 52 week study, extended from the original 26 week study, published earlier in in the journal Lancet.
Victoza is a GLP-1 analog. GLP-1 is a naturally occurring human hormone which helps to maintain normal blood sugar levels. People with Type 2 diabetes have defects in their GLP-1 systems which results in inadequate insulin release, which in turn leads to higher blood sugar levels. Since human GLP-1 is broken down very quickly, the body will not accept a an injected human GLP-1, and continue to receive benefits, for other than a short time.
Early on, in research in diabetics on Victoza, they noticed a significant weight loss in their 26 week trial. The company has finally gotten FDA approval for weight loss! Insurers do not pay for weight loss alone.
The 52 week extension study used double the 1. Currently, on the market, also used as an 'add on' for blood sugar control, and also a very safe agent which does NOT abnormally lower blood sugar is the drug Symlin, a synthetic Amlyin medication.
Symlin showed weight loss of about 30 pounds per month, but required injection before each and every meal. Compared with Symlin, ViSaxenda is not as successful at weight loss, but has a similar high price tag. Insurers have no patience for people who've 'gamed' the system to get them to pay for weight loss and EVERY time saw absurdly low levels of cooperation in losing weight.
On the other hand, in every study where the people pay for the weight loss on their own- those same people are financially motivated to 'get their money's worth' and the level of success in weight loss is better. The study scientists admit the Simeons Protocol beats out what they're doing for less cost and with higher rates of success. It's hard to get a better endorsement than that from two huge pharmaceutical companies! The questions were simple: Respondants were 6 to 8 times more likely to see themselves as overweight or obese, and were 2 to 2.
Whether we're talking about this month or 2 decades ago, people can walk in carrying twice their normal body mass and expect not to have this 'second person' strapped around their mid-section discussed as applying to their: We dare to care! Until a dialogue is opened, people who could have a wonderful and healthy life are condemned to a life of physical pain, fatigue, rejection, and hurt and will continue with psychological and physical problems until somebody who cares and can give them REAL hope intervenes.
We've had people leave the practice rather than deal successfully with getting off the excess weight. Then there's thousands of people we've helped! There's been the 15 year old girl who's 5 ft 4 inches and weights pounds twice her ideal body weight who gets no invitations to the dance. She's never asked out for a date, or if she is she's treated badly. But life is about more than dances and dates.
Many people are unaware that companies pay higher fees in unemployment insurance when workers claim they were 'hurt' on the job. One of the leading causes for injuries: Some companies have had to close due to worker injury claims.
She's also more likely to be the last hired, and the first fired. Worse, why would they not want to help their child? Some of your children are 'only' 60 or 70 pounds overweight. Please read about our very successful Simeons Weight Loss Program. While we mainly treat people in their 50's's with stubborn, resistant weight, we also treat people in their teens to their 40's. Please read about our Simeons Weight Loss Program and become one of our many 'success' stories.
Obesity is a separate risk factor for heart failure. For every 30 pounds a person is overweight, they have 50 miles of blood vessels to support that fat. People 60 pounds overweight have miles of blood vessels. That's alot of pumping! Next, all people, including overweight people have two pumps for heir blood: When a person gains weight and becomes inactive, all of the pumping work is forced onto the heart.
All those extra miles of blood vessel tire out the heart and weaken it. Fat does not just 'sit there' it has one very rich blood supply!
There is hope for people with even the worst conditions. That 'hope' requires certain exact interventions to fully evaluate and treat the whole person while reducing weight as rapidly and as safely as possible. This is one more study which shows even people in their 70's who take appropriate actions can improve the quality and legnth of their lives! It's never to late to do the right thing! Getting to ideal body weight and staying active for minutes of non-stop activity on most days walking, swimming, biking was a main goal.
The science behind the recomendations: Next, there are only 2 pumps to move blood: Finally, smoking and alcohol consumption: The body prefers to pick-up from the lungs, molecules on toxic poisonous carbon monoxide gas before it will pick up a single molecule of oxygen. Alcohol molecules break down into sugar. If you sat up for hours each night eating anything sugary and did no activity, that 'sugar energy' will not be burned.
Where does unburned sugar energy go? It all turns into fat. The new guidelines talk also about limiting sodium consumption. For decades a 'certain group' of cardiac experts have condemned sodium consumption.
The latest study puts those claims to rest and should eventually lead to a revised goal not to limit sodium. Do those smart things you know you need to do to get better health: You need to do this Program for yourself and for your family. Many people experience pain as they get older. The 'avoidance' behavior begets additional 'avoidance' behaviors which cones down a persons world to exclude more and more forms of activity.
Eventually, a person falls to the 'least' possible activity, and begins 'jumping to conclusions' as their major form of activity and exercise! National statistics show the 'average' American sitting, eating, and watching television for 40 hours a week!
It's time for Americans to get off the couch, turn off the television, and reengage in life. What have you done lately? Really- what activity have you done? What are your 10 most recent accomplishements in the past month? If you're a person, who because of pain has began to avoid activity, then you need to come in and get seen, get evaluated, and get treated.
There are many treatable conditions that can cause pain and fatigue. At Adobe we're expert at evaluating and treating these conditions. We'll also help you to set life goals and get you reengaged in having a life worth living.
Our Simeons Weight Loss Program is great at getting people reengaged in life and having way less weight pulling them down and causing foot, ankle, knee, hip and back pain.
One man who recently lost 60 pouinds, had been told by 2 orthopedic 'experts' he needed knee replacement surgery for both knees. After the 60 pound loss, he confirmed his knees felt 'great' and he's now been more active than he'd been in the last 15 years! The most consistent comment we receive from patients: From an article in the British Medical Journal, November 3rd The numbers cited were unimpressive: Over a 12 week period of 'active protocol', our 'lowest' performers lose 40 pounds: Healthcare and weight loss management should be managed by scientists health care providers and not promoted on television for 'do-it-yourself' weight loss programs, nor done through a 'spa' or a beauty salon.
Hire us as your 'science team' and work with us to make your year to get 'hooked-up' with a medically managed weight loss program! Hypertension high blood pressure , Metabolic Syndrome Diabetes , and Hyperlipidemia high cholesterol.
These three diseases are 'affectionately' described as the cardiometabolic or preventable premature death syndrome. To not die prematurely, the desicions are simple: As we've said before: When we demand more from ourselves and those we care about- we can achieve great goals.
People will rise to the level of expectations placed upon them. So, the question is: The 'bubba' double or triple sized drinks- they have double or triple the calories- to calories per 'cup'.
A 'Big Mac' has about calories by comparison. That's the problem with Americans- many can not and will not do simple math to figure out why they have a problem. America is being destroyed by high fructose corn syrup and fat. In the case of sodas: When we divide the 54, by 3, calories number of calories in a pound of fat , we have BUT the 'average' American under 50 is working on 3 cans of soda each day- or three times the calories , which is So, exactly how is it that we fail to understand why Americans are gaining so much fat?
Meta-analysis and Systematic Review: The 'typical' low activity person only burns 30 grams of carbohydrate at a meal-the rest of the carbs raises blood sugar, then raises triglyceride levels, then changes to cholesterol, then is deposited as fat on the body. Back in the day, when people walked everywhere, they could eat volumes of rice and beans and not gain weight and not develop diabetes.
These same people, back in the day, would also engage in heavy physical labor for 8 to 10 to 12 hours- burning massive amounts of fat and carbs. However, with people taking cars, buses and trains, and few people having heavy physical labor- the risk for diabetes has dramatically increased. That's one reason we say, "jumping to conclusions" has become the number one form of exercise in America. We can and must change this for the better!
We must evolve better habits to stay physically acive and mentally fit, understanding that the 'rules' have changed and we can adapt and avoid obesity, avoid diabetes, avoid cancers which go up dramatically in the obese , and avoid heart attack and stroke which also dramitically increase in the obese.
We can do this together- but we must work together to develop an individualized plan for success! From the Journal Heart, June , a study of 24, participants confirmed that calcium supplements caused a near doubling for the risk for fatal or non-fatal heart attack over the 11 year study period.
There's a reason from other studies: It's ALL about a healthy lifestyle. TV is called an 'idiot box' for a reason-- watch enough and you turn in to a self destructive idiot. As Americans we're able to review research on humans from around the globe who get it 'right' and those who get it 'wrong'.
These same successful people watch virtually no television, and instead engage in activity and conversation with their fellow LIVING, breathing, humans. These healthy and wise humans eat large amounts of vegetables and remain active into their 's. It's time to live again! From the British Medical Journal, July 10th The 'oral fixation' of putting something--anything in one's mouth to feel 'okay' according to Dr Sigmund Freud continues to receive support from human behavior. This small group of successful people were either encourgaed, or 'figured it out' on their own: People 'crave something' to fill themself inside and feel adequate.
Without a 'road-map' people lose direction and are soon lost. Instead of the 'right' thing, people settle for 'anything' and put 'anything' in their mouth while mindlessly watching TV for 40 hours a week. By searching for and accepting 'anything', these people have 'nothing' inside of them and remain empty inside! Except these folks now have developed another set of problems: Look around at the massive obesity epidemic. Everyone craves the same thing- to be 'full' inside. Many people have become confused that the 'thing' they crave is food- since some food 'tastes' good for the moment.
True substance is not food, rather it is a deep and abiding knowledge with an inner satisfaction of purpose and a path to permanent growth. There was a time when people looked up to becoming or being a part of something greater than their own being: The sense of truly belonging.
For many, this emptiness is mistranslated into acquiring food to stuff oneself. Empathy, kindness, love, and a concern for greater things above oneself- these greater concepts are rarely spoken of anymore, yet they are the substance which all humans crave. They are the greater substance which we need to return to as a people. Come on by the office. Let us open the window for you to see more than your mere circumstances.
In the growth of understanding there is always great beauty. But how bad is it? While watching TV most people eat- beyond reason. Nielson reports that overall, in , women watched more television than men for all age groups. So, the numbers supplied below reflect the lower male numbers and higher female numbers of hours of television watched per viewer by age:.
Come over to our office and start your Simeons Protocol started to get you into better shape so you can do more, so you can be more, and so you can achieve more. Brief interrputions of prolonged sitting meaningly improve overall health outcomes.
Advising patients who spend most of their day sitting has no downside to getting up and moving around at least every 30 minutes. Brief periods of activity blunted serum glucose and insulin responses to meals. So, a few minutes of physical activity each hour confers metabolic benefit in otherwise "sedentary" people. It's time to regularly get up and take a walk outside with a friend. From the Journal Arthritis and Rheumatology, May So, according to the study, being overweight really is a 'pain in the back'.
But we've concluded this same set of facts from simple observation of pregnant women over the past 4 decades. Nearly every pregnant woman complains of low back pain in the final third trimester of pregnancy. The back pain is relieved when the baby is delivered.
Think of all of the "pregnant appearing" women and men who complain of back pain. After a period, the discs become damaged from the excessive pressure and then pain begins and then worsens without any weight loss.
Your back will be happy you did! From the Annals of Neurology, May 17th In a study looking at 6, women mean age at entry of study was 66 , and looking at detailed food diaries over a 4 year period, two major factors arose which clearly affected memory. High saturated fats think fried foods were assocaited with significantly worse global overall mental functioning. In contract, higher mono-saturated fats were associated with better global memory function. This well researched article proves that a diet rich in vegetables should be selected from those vegetables in the red, yellow, orange, and green groups.
The "brown" food group- things fried and then dipped in more fat suaces will kill the heart it's been known for years that saturated fats are associated with cardiovascular death and it's now shown that mental decline is directly associated with a poorly choosen high fat diet. Let's eat our proteins, our veggies and our fruits as our main sources of energy. We'll have better heart health and better mental health.
Here's to living better! Looking at 5, adults with diabetes, we saw that 'typical calorie expenditures' translate to TV watchers versus folks with more activity. A pound of fat consists of 3, kcal. Translated, that means that every 4 days the 'active group' burned a pound of fat while the inactive group stayed fat.
On the other hand, the inactive group could tell you who won "Dancing with the Stars" contest that week-where the only exercise by the audience at home was 'jumping to conclusions' and 'moving food to mouth'.
The study results show that when diabetics actually venture outside their homes and apartments and walk and breath fresh air-- some engage in additional outdoor activities! By getting people away from their TV they could reengage in life and have better mobility and better health! We can all learn from the study and put down the remote control, turn off the TV for hours a week , quit gorging and regain a 'normal' amount of an hour a day outside enjoying fresh air and seeing other live humans outdoors.
This as one more study that proves you can and should reengage in life! You can do this: Unless there's a storm with lightening, go every day. Get out and 'lighten' up the load you're carrying. Recent studies confirm that metabolites which burn fat are only created when a person walks, jogs, or swims. Let's do this together each day! Come on by and see how lifestyle and the Simeons Protocol can work to get you active once again in losing weight and getting in better health!
You deserve to feel better! From the British Medical Journal, August 7th Population Based Retrospective Cohort Study.
