The Roots of This Research

In the early 1990s, union members in Duluth, MN demanded the benefit of medical insurance coverage for obesity treatment. With this, Duluth became the only community in the United States where treatment of obesity (BMI >30 with no other risk factors), was viewed as a medical risk factor and covered by insurance, to include Blue Cross. By 1994, the Morgan Park Medical Clinic was the only clinic-based medical weight loss program reimbursed by all commercial medical insurances in the United States. The other Duluth program we worked closely with, was hospital based.

The Morgan Park Clinic operated as a general medical clinic where obesity was treated just like any other risk. It was common to simultaneously see diverse patients such as a weight patient, a cast removal, and a chest pain that needed stabilization and transfer to the local hospital. After each patient visit, we databased everything possible. Not being hindered by the patient’s financial resources, generated a treasure trove of observations and data not possible with any other approach.

It has been 20 years since treatment of obesity, and other diseases were unified. Success is more than writing a prescription. Patient support and positioning is critical. 

Even if you don’t treat obesity as a risk factor, the techniques taught in this conference are appropriate for all patients suffering from disease relating to serotonin, catecholamines, and thiols deficiencies.

While there is a Saturday segment of the conference dedicated to the management of obesity and associated illnesses, the primary focus of this conference is not exclusively dedicated to obesity or a specific disease. It is dedicated to techniques related to serotonin, dopamine, norepinephrine, epinephrine, and thiol optimization as documented in the peer-reviewed medical literature.
