Weight Loss


Have you tried all the fad diets without successfully losing weight?  Are you tired and stressed ?

Merle Friedman is a registered dietitian with over 30 years of experience in helping people to get healthier and lose weight.  Merle combines nutrition therapy and chinese medicine (acupuncture, herbs and whole food vitamins) to balance your body chemistry and to enhance metabolism.  She uses the zyto electrodermal screening technology to determine which supplements would be most beneficial for you.  Sometimes an individual needs to receive acupuncture treatments to improve the quality of sleep which can indirectly help with weight loss (adequate sleep maintains growth hormone levels within the desirable range).  Acupuncture can also relieve stress and help lower cortisol levels which are linked to weight gain in the abdomen.  In chinese medicine, obesity is considered to be  “dampness” which can be treated with acupuncture and herbs.  If your diet is lacking in the mineral iodine, you may feel tired and have a slow metabolism.  Merle can guide you in choosing the best detox or purification program .  We also have the biomat far infrared technology which helps to  improve circulation, regulate digestion and enhance the effects of acupuncture.

Some of the local bariatric surgeons refer their clients to Merle for nutrition counseling before and after bariatric surgery.
