Weight Loss Program Specialist

What is Metabolic Code?

Metabolic Code offers a personalized approach to weight loss. It uses a complex computer algorithm to identify areas of your health that may be affecting your weight.

Dr. John was an early user of the Metabolic Code system at his practice and is considered one of the founding members by the makers of the revolutionary health system.

How can Metabolic Code help with weight loss?

The Metabolic Code uses your specific health information to create an individualized weight loss plan.

To begin the weight loss program, Dr. John obtains lab work and has you complete a symptom survey that includes questions about food cravings, sleep quality and other health-related issues. He then conducts a physical examination to obtain biometric information, including height, weight, blood pressure, saliva pH, and heart rate.

All this information is then uploaded to the Metabolic Code to create your individualized health report, which includes a breakdown of your metabolism and lab work. Dr. John uses the information from your report to create your weight loss plan.

Are medications prescribed to assist with weight loss?

Dr. John uses a variety of methods to help you reach your weight loss goals, including medications. If a drug is used, Dr. John monitors you closely for progress and side effects.

Based on the results of your Metabolic Code analysis, he may also recommend supplements, such as herbs and vitamins.

What other tools are available to assist with weight loss?

Dr. John knows that weight loss isn’t a one-size-fits-all undertaking, and so he works with you to identify the best course of action to help you achieve your weight goals.

He offers:

  • Individualized nutrition and exercise plans
  • Behavior modification counseling
  • Support and encouragement

Dr. John is also aware of medical conditions that affect weight loss, including food allergies, and offers testing to see if these factors are affecting your health and weight. He also offers testing and treatment for leaky gut syndrome.
