Flowers Medical Group has partnered with Pathway Genomics to provide the Pathway Fit® genetic testing to patients interested in taking health to the next level. This innovative science takes the guess work out of finding the weight loss program that works for each person.
Proper weight is essential for optimum health. Good nutrition and physical activity are important to any weight management program; however, science can help patients go further to succeed.
A multi-faceted approach is necessary to achieve the best results for weight loss. Dr. Flowers uses scientifically-based techniques, not fads, gimmicks, or unrealistic diets.
A recent Stanford University study demonstrated that people who follow a genetically appropriate diet can achieve 2.5-fold improvement in weight loss and a 2-fold reduction of waist measurement compared to those who follow a genetically inappropriate diet. Since genetics account for 40-70% of a person’s predisposition to obesity, it is vital to analyze genomes for the best chance of success with weight management. With this in mind, Flowers Medical Group is pleased to offer the Pathway Fit® genetic test. This cutting-edge test examines over 75 genetic markers associated with diet, nutrition and exercise.
By analyzing genetic code, along with answers to a lifestyle questionnaire, the Pathway Fit report helps to understand metabolism, eating behaviors, response to exercise, as well as the best way to reach and maintain a healthy weight and lifestyle. At Flowers Medical Group, each patient receives a customized program based on their individual lab results covering a number of different areas. No two patients are exactly alike.
“Many people have tried so many pills, equipment or programs that haven’t worked over the years,” Dr. Flowers explains, “so they may feel that weight control is simply not possible for them. We want those people to know that there are exciting advancements in how we approach weight management. We offer new ways for you to receive assistance, encouragement...and sustainable results.”
Genome testing is just the latest innovative treatment of many which are part of a functional medicine specialty practice where patients benefit from advanced “medical wellness” therapies. Hormone therapy is another example and an essential consideration for those challenged with maintaining proper weight. Many people experience anguish having failed repeatedly with dieting. Balancing hormones can be a critical step to weight management success when it is a component of a comprehensive program at Flowers Medical Group.
The whole-life approach practiced by Dr. Flowers helps individuals restore and maintain optimal health so they feel better, live longer, and are better equipped to prevent disease.
As a graduate from the Advance Fellowship at the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine, Dr. Flowers is one of an elite group who have learned the latest treatments in these areas where most healthcare providers simply do not have the knowledge or expertise.
Dr. Flowers is Board Certified by the American Board of AntiAging and Regenerative Medicine and has over twenty years of clinical experience.
Flowers Medical Group is also pleased to partner with the nearby Midtown Athletic Club at Windy Hill to guide you on your path to consistent and proper exercise as a way to abundant life at any age.
“Midtown is excited to contribute to this all-encompassing approach by providing guided exercise programs and restorative balance,” Catherine Luciano, Fitness Director, Midtown Athletic Club.
