Understand how serotonin and norepinephrine control the appetite center

Weight loss requires eating less food. There are no pills where patients eat food as before and lose weight. Since 1995, we have refined the ability of nutrients to induce appetite suppression, allowing the patients to eat less food comfortably. While certain reuptake inhibitor drugs may cause appetite suppression, it is well known that they deplete the same neurotransmitters they work with, leaving a state where the drug no longer works.

Database experience documenting over four million patient days is the foundation for this clinical weight loss program. This data documents an average weight loss in the first month is 16.9 pounds.

Success requires attention to detail with five

  • Patient motivation
  • Optimal time between clinic visits
  • Precision monitoring of food intake
  • Taking pill properly
  • Computer-guided performance analysis

You will know that the medical weight loss care you provide is effective if you are stopping more drugs than you are starting.


    Every person with type II diabetes has a very narrow threshold they go through as they lose weight. This is usually about a five-pound weight loss range where the patient needs to be taken off all their diabetes medicines. This leaves the patient who clinically has no detectable diabetes and no need for diabetes drugs.

    ACTUAL CASE: A 39-year-old female patient presented in the clinic weighing 229 pounds. She was a type II diabetic taking 90 units of insulin a day for the past ten years. In the first three weeks, she lost 13 pounds. With effective weight loss, she entered her diabetic weight loss threshold at 222 pounds. When her weight reached 217 pounds her diabetes drugs (insulin, oral hypoglycemics, etc.) were tapered to a stop. Within two months the diabetic neuropathy in her feet had resolved and her previous creatinine of 2.2 at the start of care was now 0.9. For ten years she had given herself insulin shots twice a day. She claimed that no one had ever told her that if I lost 12 pounds, she would no longer have to self-inject insulin twice a day. While this patient required only a 12-pound weight loss for the clinical symptoms of diabetes to resolve some patients may require 60, 80, or more than 100 pounds of weight loss before they enter their diabetic weight loss threshold.

ALL the problems listed above are caused by or exacerbated by eating too much food (obesity).

At the heart of all these diseases is obesity (eating too much food). The only way to lose significant weight is to eat less food (decreased calorie intake). Serotonin and norepinephrine control the appetite center of the brain. The only drugs which control appetite and allow the patient to eat less food comfortably are the anorectic class of drugs in pharmacology. All of these drugs are serotonin and/or norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors.

WHAT TO EXPECT (a sampling)
Adequate weight loss may have a profoundly positive impact on all the diseases listed in the yellow area above.

  • 8 to 12-pound weight loss may require stopping blood pressure medication secondary to hypotension
  • 30-pound weight loss may no longer need cholesterol meds (statins)
  • People with type II diabetes with adequate weight loss may no longer need insulin or oral hypoglycemic medications.
  • With sufficient weight loss, all drugs used with the diseases listed in the yellow area above may require stopping.
