Fort Lauderdale, FL (PRWEB) March 29, 2006
Obesity is one of the most growing diseases in the world and its psychological element seems to be even harder for people to deal with. Nowadays, this eating disorder is understood as a very complex illness due to different possible reasons such as hormonal disorders, genetics and even lifestyle conditions.
According to recent statistics, 20% of Americans are obese with 6-10% classified as morbidly obese (having a body mass index of 40 or greater, or being more than 100 pounds overweight), a health problem with severe consequences that can include hypertension, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, obstructive sleep apnea, degenerative arthritis, breast and colon cancer, psychosocial problems, and more.
One of the best options for obesity, definitely is the Brazilian former method of Bariatric surgery called Santoro’s technique which not only restricts the amount of food that can be held by the stomach but also reduces the ability of the body to absorb calories by eliminating part of the small intestine from the digestive process. This technique is better than the Gastric Bypass Surgery because allows the patients to ingest food that contains high-fat and high-carbohydrate ingredients when they are already recovered, plus minimum risk providing a less struggling routine for them. This method was created in Brazil approximately 5 years ago and over 5000 people were successfully operated so far. Brazilian doctors have been recently to Cleveland to lecture about this subject, because this technique is just starting in the US while it has a strong practice in Brazil.
Gastric procedures are usually very expensive in places like the US and Europe, so people have a hard time deciding what to do with the obesity issue, sometimes even taking strong medicine drugs that could harm the psychological system.
Therefore, CosmeticVacations.com is a medical tourism company which offers the opportunity of affordable prices in Brazil plus an amazing trip safely taken through one of the most beautiful countries in Latin America, what could provide a much cozier environment for the post surgery recover. We make sure that health and entertainment are our specialties. The quality of the doctors is constantly complemented by our clients -- says Peter Ryan, director and founder of CosmeticVacations.
