The initial visit with the doctor includes a medical history, limited exam, blood pressure, weight, body fat, EKG, blood work, injection for cravings and fat burning, a one month supply of fat burner and vitamins and a one week supply of prescription appetite medication for $260. After that, it is $75 per week for blood pressure, weight, and body fat measurements, your injection and a week’s supply of prescription appetite medication.
Dr. Bragg’s program is based on lowering insulin levels. This is accomplished by eating foods that don’t spike your insulin level. When insulin levels are low, fat is burned instead of sugar and hunger is controlled.
4. What if I have diabetes or high blood pressure?
We have a special program for patients with diabetes that dramatically lowers their sugar readings. We monitor your blood pressure every week and blood pressure medication usually has to be tapered off by your physician. We have had many patients that have come off up to five (5) medications for diabetes and blood pressure after losing weight and lowering their insulin level.
Children over 10 can be evaluated to see if they qualify for the weight loss program with parental approval. The FDA requires children to be 16 years old before being prescribed medication for appetite. We do have alternative medication choices for children under 16.
