Diet & Nutrition
Permanent weight loss is certainly one of the great problems facing our society. Obesity diminishes health and wellness because of the physical, emotional and mental consequences experienced by those challenged with weight control issues.
All social classes and age groups are challenged by undesired weight gain although most overweight folks suffer this malady in painful silent isolation.
Proper diet and exercise are important, but having tons of information on these topics is not a solution in and of itself. America is steadily becoming fatter. A recent study by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, “predicts that by the year 2020 nearly 75% of the American population will be overweight or obese”.
From a health and wellness perspective, surplus body fat increases the risk of Cancer, Heart disease, Stroke, Diabetes and a major source of low self-esteem.

So what is to be done and how is ideal weight best achieved ?
At the Wills’ Health and Wellness Center, we believe the most important realization one can make is that the weight loss issue is most successfully addressed when patients have a partnership with knowledgeable health care givers who encourage and support changes in the patient's behavior.
Finally, we approach the weight issue from a multi-factorial perspective. We look for issues of chronic toxicity, borderline under functioning hormonal systems, inaccurate information about nutrition, destructive eating habits, including emotional eating and failure to honor the body’s needs.
We believe in the use of diet pills, injections, B-12 injections, as well as herbal products. Dr. Wills has successfully used the Meridian Tapping Technique to remove emotional blocks. These blocks can be responsible for automatic and dysfunctional eating behaviors which are often not recognized by the individual. Even when a patient is aware of these automatic eating behaviors, they need help to begin to control their eating habits. Weight loss and maintaining ideal body weight are very possible; and the rewards to one’s health and wellness are immeasurable!
