We’re happy to offer our Lapex LipoLaser weight loss program, which features 12 Lapex LipLaser treatments, for a special price of $1,700 for the first six people who sign up.
In addition to the 12 Lapex LipoLaser treatments for one area of the body, this complete program normally priced at $3,500 also includes nutrition supplements at a 20% off discount during the program, one-on-one consultations and group training for healthy eating.
About the program
The Lapex weight loss program is safe and there is no surgery, no pain, no down time and no side effects.
Here’s a video explanation of the technology:
How it works:
Laser energy safely penetrates the patient’s skin at a specific wavelength (658nm) targeted for adipose (fat) cells.
Adipose cells are permeated, releasing free fatty acids (FFA’s), water and glycerol. Together these compounds are also known as triglycerides.
Triglycerides are normally released from fat cells when the body needs energy. Once released, the glycerol and free fatty acids are used by the body as an energy source.
Adipose cells “shrink” significantly, resulting in “inch-loss” for patients. Exercise or a 10 minutes Whole Body Vibration session is recommended immediately post LipoLaser treatment to burn FFA’s within the body and help stimulate the lymphatic system.
We’re happy to bring you a powerful story from one of our patients who has lost an impressive 35 pounds in the past six months.
In her first ever experience with the Traditional Chinese Medicine approach, she was able to make great progress in healing her body and experienced a variety of health benefits.
She credits her treatments at our clinic for helping her, including acupuncture for weight loss, a 3-week detoxification program and yeast cleansing protocol.
We’d like to congratulate Karen, from Sacramento, on her accomplishment and thank her for sharing her story with us on our website. Here’s her story in her own words:
Working with Jennifer, these past 6 months, has been my first experiences with a Traditional Chinese Medicine approach. I came to her for a hormone imbalance, expecting she’d use needles once or twice, some herbs and I’d be back to normal, lickity split. Well, what I discovered was she was willing to not just fix the symptom, but give me an opportunity to heal my body. I have had to trust her and have an open mind and patience. It takes us years to get into our current physical state, why shouldn’t it take some months to heal ourselves?
The last couple of months she’s guided me to detoxify my body using a variety of methods, such as vitamin, herbal powdered drinks, food selection and elimination, mineral supplements, acupuncture and something called, moxibustion. (Come see her to find out about that!)
The beginning of the process, I experienced the surprising side effects of easily awakening in the morning alert and energetic, a significant decrease in my hay fever, and my excess 50 pounds of weight slowly shedding. (With only walking 20 minutes a few days a month, I’ve lost 35 lbs.) It’s been challenging along the way, but Jennifer has been there to answer my many questions, provide support and encouragement, as well as tweak the treatment plan so the side effects are minimal. We are now addressing the hormone imbalance and in time, I’ll be fine, I’m sure of that! I’ve also learned that I can follow thru and delay, gratification, to aid my healing. This experience has boosted my self confidence! It’s a journey well taken.
A little over a week ago, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced statistics that show as many as 1 in 3 U.S. adults could have diabetes by 2050 if current trends continue.
The report predicts that the number of new diabetes cases each year will increase from 8 per 1,000 people in 2008, to 15 per 1,000 in 2050.
One of the main factors behind the projected increase in cases is an aging population susceptible to developing type 2 diabetes.
How to prevent type 2 diabetes
Proper diet and exercise can help prevent diabetes, and also help control the condition for those who already have it.
Dr. Judith Fradkin, Director of Diabetes Division at NIH, told a news station that an NIH study showed that just losing 15 pounds can reduce your risk for developing type 2 diabetes over the next three years by 58 percent. Check out the video with the interview below.
Risk factors for type 2 diabetes include older age, obesity, family history, having diabetes while pregnant, a sedentary lifestyle.
Certain racial/ethnic groups also more commonly develop type 2 diabetes, according to the CD, identifying the groups as African-Americans, Hispanics, American Indians/Alaska Natives, and some Asian-Americans and Pacific Islanders.
A Diabetes Prevention Program clinical trial, led by the National Institutes of Health, reduced the risk of developing type 2 diabetes by 58 percent in people at higher risk of the disease.
While these types of government programs show promise, they also show the need for personal preventative action.

A healthy gastrointestinal (GI) system is integral to the health of the entire body. One of the first steps in regaining health, as it relates to nutritional balances is to support the gastrointestinal system with targeted nutrients at specific doses.
ClearVite is a doctor-designed, hypoallergenic rice protein formula intended to support the detoxification mechanisms in the body. This multi-faceted formula contains specially selected herbs and nutrients that also support healthy blood sugar balance.
The ClearVite program allows the rebuilding and nutritional support that the body needs for optimum health and allows the body to pinpoint certain food sensitivities. Many people have experienced benefits such as increased energy and focus, feeling healthier and happier, and even losing 5 to 10 lbs after the initial 21 days of detox.
Scientists are calling the chemicals “obesogens” because of the way they “may promote weight gain and obesity.”
In the human body, the endocrine system and its hormones are crucial for regulating systems that control body weight, such as metabolism.
Because obesogens disrupt the endocrine system, they also disrupt these important weight-controlling functions.
This means that even if you make corrections in your diet to lose weight, you will be unable to completely control your weight if you remain exposed to these harmful chemicals.
Nine of the ten most commonly used pesticides are obesity-promoting chemicals, according to this article on Yahoo! Shine, so eating healthy foods like fruits and vegetables may actually work against your efforts to lose weight if they contain obesogens.
How to reduce your exposure to obesogens One of the best ways is to eat organic–but most importantly, to avoid products that contain the most pesticides.
The Environmental Working Group (EWG) identified 12 fruits and vegetables that account for about 80 percent of peoples’ exposure to pesticides: celery, peaches, strawberries, apples, blueberries (domestic), nectarines, sweet bell peppers, spinach, kale/collard greens, cherries, potatoes and grapes (imported).
If you do choose to purchase these fruits and vegetables, buying organic versions will help you reduce your exposure to harmful obesity-promoting chemicals.
The EWG also identified 15 fruits and vegetables that contain very low levels of pesticides: onions, avocado, sweet corn (frozen), pineapples, mango, sweet peas (frozen), asparagus, kiwi fruit, cabbage, eggplant, cantaloupe (domestic), watermelon, grapefruit, sweet potatoes and honeydew melon.
Selecting these foods instead of those containing higher levels of pesticides can also help reduce your obesogen exposure while not necessarily requiring you to buy expensive organic versions.
Another way you can avoid obesogens is by reducing plastics and canned food from your diet.
For example, many plastics used to package food at supermarkets contain synthetic compounds like BPA that resemble estrogen, a hormone in the human body that stores fat and reduces muscle.
Avoid heating food in plastic containers or heating sports water bottles. Heat can cause damage to the plastic and make it leak the chemicals into food and drinks.
Also, avoid fatty meats. Conventional meat may have higher levels of chemicals stored in the fat, so if you’re at the supermarket and planning to buy conventional meat, buy leaner cuts.
Finally, filter your drinking water with an activated carbon water filter, which will remove most pesticides and industrial pollutants.
