And On To Stable Ground”


Dear Professional Dieter,

      Do you often feel that you are, truly, a professional dieter?  You have tried them all: the all grapefruit diet, Slim Fast, Cabbage Soup diet, South Beach diet, or maybe even the diet pills (even with all the horrible side-effects).  Maybe you have even done Weight Watchers, the Adkins diet, Jenny Craig, or MediFast with some results, but those results did not last.  You stopped eating or drinking what was part of the ‘program’ and within a few weeks you put back on the weight you had lost and possibly even more!!!! 

      Many different sources indicate that at any given time over 50% of Americans are on a diet.  It is estimated that in 2006 the dieting industry earned over $55 BILLION (that is a “B”). That included diet centers and programs, group and individual weight-loss, diet camps, pre-packaged foods, over the counter and prescription diet drugs, weight-loss books and magazines, and physicians, nurses, nutritionists, other health professionals specializing in weight-loss, commercial and residential exercise clubs with weight-loss programs, sugar-free, fat-free, and reduced calorie (“lite”) food products, imitation fats and sugar substitutes.

      Have you ever thought that being overweight or unable to lose the weight you want to lose is just who you are, that you are destined to be overweight.  Or the thought that it is just your SLOW metabolism. Maybe, it is in your ‘genes’.  Well, there may be some truth to those thoughts, but it does not have to continue to keep you from reaching the goals you have to reach a healthy weight. It is possible that you may be suffering from:  An undiagnosed Thyroid Disorder, Food Intolerances or Sensitivities, Undiagnosed Diabetes, or many other conditions.

              If you’ve been suffering with fatigue and not being able to lose weight regardless of what you do and you’re frustrated with ineffective treatment, then this will be the most important message you’ve read in a very long time.

 It doesn’t have to be that way for you anymore!

     In fact, I’m going to reveal to you a new breakthrough program that, potentially, is the answer you’ve been praying for.  But first, I would like for you to read through the following list of symptoms and circle those that you have experienced or are now experiencing. 

  • Fatigue
  • Weight gain, despite adhering to a low-calorie diet, or difficulty losing weight
  • Morning headaches that wear off as the day progresses
  • Depression
  • Constipation (difficult or infrequent bowel movements)
  • Hypersensitivity to cold weather
  • Poor circulation and numbness in the hands and feet (cold hands and feet)
  • Muscles cramps while at rest
  • Increased susceptibility to colds and other viral or bacterial infections and difficulty recovering from them
  • Slow wound healing
  • Excessive amount of sleep required to function properly
  • Poor memory
  • Chronic digestive problems, such as a lack of stomach acid (hypochlorhydria)
  • Itchy, dry or course skin
  • Dry or brittle hair
  • Hair falls out easily
  • Carpal Tunnel
  • Low auxiliary (body heat) temperature, although this may also be caused by any hormonal imbalance
  • Loss of appetite
  • Edema especially facial swelling (myxedema)
  • Loss of outermost portion of eyebrows
  • Heat Intolerance
  • Diarrhea
  • Excessive bowel frequency
  • Inward trembling
  • Night sweats
  • Insomnia
  • Feelings of nervousness/emotional distress
  • Sweaty palms
  • Increased pulse rate, even at rest

     How many of these do you have?  If you circled more than one or two then you may have an underlying condition that is the root problem to why you are unable to shed those extra pounds.

 Here’s What I Have For You

 … A safe, clinically proven, management program for Weight-loss.  Using the most up-to-date clinical and laboratory testing we create a comprehensive program that’s specific to each patient’s needs.  That’s why I call it, Science Based Weight Loss

This is not the latest fad diet, this is not a quick fix then gain the weight back, this is get your physiology running the way it was meant to and when we do that you will be healthier and those above symptoms will be gone,  and guess what? you will lose weight, the average for our patients is 30lbs,  yes that right 30lbs.

      A little background…

         My name is Dr. Mark A. Scott.  I’m a Chiropractic Physician and have specialized training in functional medicine I am the founder of the Total Health Center and have been in practice for close to 2 decades helping people, just like you, get out of pain, get well and stay well without resorting to dangerous drugs. 

I have studied fitness, diet, and healthy weight management my whole life and I have seen it all and done it all. The Science based Weight loss program is the culmination of my life’s work , and it’s nothing short of amazing. We have helped people who could not previously be helped. There’s something you’ve got to keep in mind.  At the Total Health Center we are dedicated to changing the lives of those who suffer with Metabolic Disorders here in the Hampton Roads Area. This is what we do.  This is our calling!  Because the usual underlying condition for the inability to lose those extra pounds is a thyroid disorder, or a digestive disorder, or a adrenal disorder etc.. I will focus on that condition and how it relates to your weight loss problems. 

 How do we do it

 We use the latest in functional medicine,

  • Blood testing
  • DNA testing
  • Gastrointestinal testing
  • Digestive testing
  • Food allergy testing
  • Thyroid testing
  • Adrenal testing
  • Hormone testing

We find out what your individual issues are and work to restore function, let’s face it you’ve tried other diets and weight loss programs, some work for some people but not others right? With Science Based Weight Loss we take the guesswork out and Taylor a weight loss plan for your body, not a plan that works for some, one that works for you!
