Your Healthy Treatment Plan Options

Anti-aging Diet

The anti-aging diet contains a variety of nutritional foods that help slow down the aging process, enhance stem cell growth, and improve the body’s overall health. This diet can also reduce inflammation and prolong your lifespan by approximately 16 to 20 years.

Caloric Restriction Techniques

Our caloric restriction techniques can permanently help reduce the amount of food you consume daily without feeling deprived so you can easily lose weight and prevent certain illnesses like obesity, type 2 diabetes, and heart disease.

Fasting Mimicking Diet (FMD)

The fast mimicking diet (FMD) involves “fasting” for five consecutive days every month, where you consume a plant-based diet of 800 calories per day for those five days. This fasting phase allows your stem cells to regenerate and reduces the risk of many degenerative diseases, and an FMD can also help you lose up to 10 pounds in three months.

Intermittent Fasting Techniques

Intermittent fasting is known to help lose a significant amount of weight and improve mental clarity by restricting your eating times to a certain period each day. Sticking to a nutritious diet that contains fresh vegetables, fruits, nuts, and lean meats when you do eat is also beneficial. Intermittent fasting can improve your health and prevent issues such as ischemic heart disease, stroke, cancer, and kidney failure.

Medical Weight Loss

Whether you want to lose 10 pounds or over 50, our medical weight loss plans can help you safely do so. We can identify potential medical issues that may be affecting your weight, monitor your caloric intake and body mass index (BMI), and develop a diet and activity plan that meets your specific needs. Our team will also help you identify and adjust behaviors that affect your weight and provide you the support needed to create a healthy lifestyle.


OPTIFAST® is a meal replacement method that comes in the form of liquids, bars, and soups. Substituting your meals with these products will reduce your intake of sugar and processed carbohydrates, allowing you to lose up to 50 pounds within four to six months.

Weight Loss Medications

Our FDA-approved weight loss medications suppress your appetite and help you achieve the figure you have always wanted. When combined with a healthy diet plan, these medications can help you lose 30 percent of your body weight in the span of 12 to 18 months.
