Is Your Body in an Ideal State of Health?
Hope, an Ideal Health client, who experienced success transforming her body and life.
By Dylan Webb, Clinic Director, CHHC
The day after Thanksgiving, I, along with my wife and two young children, spent the day putting up our tree and decorating for Christmas. Then our family snuggled up to watch a Christmas movie to get into the spirit.
We chose A Boy Called Christmas on Netflix. It tells the story of the very first Christmas, and it begins with a King who offers up a reward for the townsperson who can bring back a message of hope to the impoverished community. It got me thinking about how the last two years have taken a toll on our businesses, sense of community, and our collective spirits. But it also caused me to reflect on how fortunate I am to be in an industry that truly offers a message of hope to everyone who walks through our doors.
I am the owner and Clinic Director of Ideal Health, located in Midtown Anchorage. Our office specializes in health coaching, using a medically designed protocol that uses food as medicine and believes that weight loss is healthcare. This method that we use in our clinic is called the Ideal Protein Protocol. It’s a 3-phase Ketogenic program with 1-on-1 health coaching to reset the body to burn fat while preserving lean body mass. We even do advanced body composition scans weekly, utilizing bioelectrical impedance technology, to ensure that it’s fat that is being burned, not our muscles.
In addition, we meet the micronutrient requirements of the body through doctor-designed supplementation. Possibly the most important factor that sets us apart from other protocols is weekly sessions with your health coach to promote accountability, education, and emotional support, as well as answer any questions that may arise. The end result? Women can expect an average weekly weight loss of 2-5 pounds and men can expect an average of 3-7 pounds.
Most people who come to see us have little hope about being able to turn their health around. Most people have tried everything but have still been unsuccessful in reaching their goals. When we tell them what we can offer them, they are skeptical. After they start, they can’t believe how great they feel, with no major hunger, low energy, or those uncontrollable sugar cravings.
Patricia Zulkosky, who is now one of our team health coaches, lost 135 pounds on our protocol in 2016 and has kept the weight off. With those pounds, she also left behind a plethora of medications for diabetes and other conditions related to metabolic syndrome, a cost savings of thousands of dollars a month. When you meet her, one of the first things she’ll share is that this program saved her life.
Did you know that losing just 10 percent of your body weight can improve your metabolic health? My team and I are currently working with someone who lost 40 pounds and her doctor made the determination that insulin was no longer necessary. Talk about life changing!
Speaking of hope… pictured above, Hope, one of our clients, has experienced tremendous success with transforming her body and life, and her story has been able to motivate and provide hope to others all over Alaska and the Lower 48, after she was featured on a national podcast.
If this sounds like something you would benefit from, register for our free educational seminar in January to learn about the science behind the protocol and to see if it’s the right program for you. Please give us a call or text “seminar” to 907-885-3130 to sign up for the event on Monday, January 10 at 6 p.m. We hope to see you there.
