The people of Bansko have a choice when it comes to their weight loss doctor: Dr. Brisban, or Dr. Zikas. Dr. Zikas is a Greek physician who specializes in an approach known as “holistic medicine.” This approach attempts to balance the mind, body and spirit in order to promote healthy living. Many people find that this holistic approach is preferable to other forms of medicine.
Dr. Zikas uses many of the same techniques and philosophies that Dr. Brisban uses. However, he also believes strongly that diet and exercise are important components to any weight loss program. Because Dr. Zikas is such a strong believer in the holistic approach, many of his patients suffer from both psychological and physical problems. In one case, he had two teens with very severe eating disorders. When they did not follow his recommendations and cancel appointments for meetings at the gym, it resulted in them developing more severe eating disorders.
The next weight loss doctors, we will look at are those in Sofia, Bulgaria. Dr. Demetri Simes is a neurosurgeon. He specializes in head and neck surgery and has treated some of the most unfortunate people in the country. His patients range from elderly dementia victims to former athletes with memory loss.
One of the most unique methods he uses is called Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS). This is done through the use of a portable TENS machine which produces small electrical pulses along the nerves to increase blood circulation. The increased flow of oxygen to the muscles causes them to burn calories more quickly. Dr. Simes believes this increased metabolic rate promotes weight loss.
The last of the weight loss doctors we will discuss is Michael Yalin, M.D. is a nutritionist. In 2021, he co-founded the Center for Obesity Prevention and Policy Research at the University of Maryland Baltimore County. In 2021, he was named one of the “Ten Outstanding Doctors for their Choice in Fitness” by the readers of “azines that matters” (The New England Journal of Medicine). Dr. Yalin’s specialty is hypertension and weight control.
There are many more weight loss doctors Brisbane. Some specialize in a certain area such as cardiologists, surgeons or nutritionists. Others do a more generalized form of medicine such as mental health therapists or psychiatristarians. No matter what kind of doctor you want, make sure that you get all of the information that you can before making your choice. It might save you a lot of money, a lot of stress and a lot of trouble in the long run.
