It's time to leave birthing babies to the young folk. I'm going to focus on helping my patients lose and keep the weight off
Atlanta, Ga. (PRWEB) December 31, 2008
Dr. Felecia L. Dawson will no longer catch babies. After 18 years of private practice she is retiring from obstetrics. She has opened The Center for Medical Weight loss. "It's time to leave birthing babies to the young folk. I'm going to focus on helping my patients lose and keep the weight off", states Dr. Dawson.
She hopes to bring her holistic framework to weight loss, by offering medical detoxification. Weight loss,via dieting or bariatric surgery, simultaneously burns fat while releasing toxins into the bloodstream. Most toxins are deposited in fat cells. The more overweight a person is, the greater the toxic load.
Cultures around the world have had various methods of cleansing and detoxifying for centuries. Methods have included some combination of water fasts, saunas, enemas, colonics, hydrotherapy, and nutritional modifications. "Unfortunately, we live in a world much more toxic than that of our ancestors", explains Dr. Dawson. "Water or juice fasts are not adequate to handle today's toxic load. The overall detoxification process is very nutrient dependent. Without the proper vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients, and proteins, detoxification cannot occur properly. Molecules, more dangerous than the original toxin, may be produced."
Over the counter detoxification programs may last one to two weeks. A medical detoxification, supervised by a health care provider, typically lasts four weeks. Beginning a weight loss program after detoxification is safer, and results in fewer side effects.
Dr. Dawson specializes in bariatric medicine and holistic gynecology. She is board certified in obstetrics, gynecology, and holistic medicine (http://www.wmn4wmn.com).
