New Childhood Obesity Op-Ed co-written by Bill Clinton Correctly Emphasizes Prevention in Kids, but Omits the Adult Solution, says Dr. Feiz and Associates

Changes to school lunches will help fight obesity in the long-run, but many currently obese adults need immediate solutions.

A June 30 CNN opinion piece written by former president Bill Clinton and American Heart Association CEO Nancy Brown argues for a variety of ongoing programs aimed at lowering childhood obesity. Los Angeles based weight loss surgery center Dr. Feiz and Associates agrees that initiatives aimed at encouraging more nutritionally sound school lunches and increased fitness are extremely important for lowering the terrifying rates of childhood obesity. However, the center also notes such procedures as the gastric sleeve may be the only way to deal with severe obesity when it comes to individuals for whom preventive efforts have come too late.

Dr. Feiz and Associates agrees that prevention is always preferable to a safe but admittedly aggressive treatment such as a weight loss procedure. At the same time, the clinic adds, the emphasis on prevention and relatively small lifestyle changes such as the #Commit2Ten campaign, encouraging children and adults to add 10 minutes of daily activity to their daily routine, can create a false sense that severely overweight individuals can overcome their obesity simply by taking up a few modest lifestyle changes.

The struggles of a person trying to lose 10 or 20 pounds can be difficult enough, but should not be compared with the battle to lose as much as 100 pounds or more that many severely obese people must wage, notes Dr. Feiz and Associates. Specifically, bariatric surgeon Michael Feiz, M.D., F.A.C.S. has often discussed the importance of the hormonal aspects of obesity. Dr. Feiz often notes that ghrelin, a powerful hunger hormone, appears to be more present in the bodies of obese people, and its presence increases the more weight a patient loses. The doctor adds that procedures such as the sleeve gastrectomy, which significantly reduces the production of ghrelin by removing approximately 80 percent of the stomach, make it far easier for severely obese people to unlearn the bad eating habits they learned in childhood.

People who may have only struggled with a few additional pounds often have a hard time understanding the nature of severe obesity, says Dr. Feiz and Associates. While efforts to encourage children and adults to trim unnecessary calories and exercise are important and extremely laudable, more proactive efforts are needed once preventive efforts have failed and severe obesity has set in, says the weight loss clinic.

Diet Doc Emphasizes the Dangers of Ineffective Homeopathic Online hCG Diet Drops

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) April 07, 2015

Weight loss is a big business in the United States, raking in billions of dollars via the internet by promoting such products as homeopathic online hCG diet drops. To better understand why homeopathic drugs are ineffective, one must first understand the term, “homeopathic”. Homeopathic simply means that the product has been diluted with other ingredients. Sometimes the original drug is so saturated with other ingredients that there is no evidence of any of the original, intended drug in the product, making it entirely ineffective. And, because the ingredients used to dilute the product is not typically disclosed, patients are exposed to health compromise or drug contraindications. Other advertisements that consumers should pay very close attention include:

    “No prescription necessary”. Human chorionic gonadotropin, or hCG, is a prescription drug that is obtainable only through a valid doctor order. Doctors who specialize in hCG treatment will ensure that diet plans that are complemented with human chorionic gonadotropin are compatible with nutritional needs, as well as any underlying medical conditions and prescription medications. Any form of this hormone, dispensed by anyone other than a qualified weight loss physician, is ineffective and illegal.
    Many homeopathic online diet drops distributors advertise “Dramatic weight loss in just 7 days”. Although produced naturally by the body, this hormone is very powerful and, when used under medical supervision and in combination with a compatible meal and snack plan, can be effective in generating weight loss, as well as eliminating dieting side effects. There is no research available, however, validating the effectiveness of homeopathic human chorionic gonadotropin diet drops alone.
    Fraudulent companies can be found advertising “No exercise required”. While dieters who are following a medically supervised hCG diet plan are advised against engaging in rigorous exercise, safe and healthy weight loss does require some form of exercise. The patient’s weight loss physician will recommend the form of exercise that best fits the needs and capabilities of each patient.

Diet Doc has earned its reputation by providing their clients safe, effective and pure prescription diet products, all manufactured in the U.S. in fully licensed, FDA approved pharmacies. Each product is accompanied by a third-party Certificate of Analysis, detailing the quality and quantity of the ingredients. Because Diet Doc offers only pure, prescription diet products, consumers will not find their diet products on store shelves and are made available to qualified patients only after a satisfactory consultation with one of the company’s highly trained physicians. During the consult, the doctor will review past medical history, current health conditions and review the entire system to uncover underlying issues that may be preventing weight loss or causing weight gain. These issues will be addressed prior to the doctor making recommendations for the best solution for weight loss.

Diet Doc stands apart from most weight loss companies by standing behind their services and diet products, providing customized diet plans that are individual to each patient’s personal needs, supervising each patient’s weight loss journey with scheduled weekly checkup calls, incorporating only 100% pure prescription diet products and offering unlimited access to a team of doctors, nurses, nutritionists and coaches throughout each patient’s journey. This level of personal attention and support is unparalleled by the competition and has made Diet Doc a leader in the weight loss industry.

Diet Doc urges those who are desperate to lose unhealthy and embarrassing excess fat, and who are tempted to buy homeopathic online human chorionic gonadotropin diet drops, to call the experts prior to making a decision that could result in serious health compromise.
