First of all let’s find out who Dr Berg is?
Eric Berg, DC, 52 years of age is a chiropractor who specializes in weight loss through nutritional and natural methods. His private practice is located in Alexandria, Virginia.
He has been in practice for 25 years. At his clinic he provides consultation to patients in eating better, how to get nutrition from the foods we eat and using nutrition to improve health. He has taught nutrition part time at Howard University as an associate professor in the Community Health division and delivered many educational seminars to government agencies as well as creating health YouTube videos online.
A chiropractor is a health care professional focused on the diagnosis and treatment of neuromuscular disorders, with an emphasis on treatment through manual adjustment/manipulation o the spine. Chiropractics is generally recognized as an alternative to medicine or complementary medicine.
What made him deviate from his main profession?
Dr Berg at one point of time was himself battling with health issues! When medications could not provide any benefits, he realized that it were his reckless eating habits that led to all the problems!
Thus, during his struggles to combat his deteriorating health, he realized the value of healthy eating! Around the age of 32, Dr Berg started studying nutrition intensely, quit his full-time chiropractic practice, and delved deeply into food therapy, acupressure, and alternative techniques.
He is the author of The 7 Principles of Fat Burning, published by KB Publishing in January 2011.
He says, “It’s getting healthy to lose weight and not lose weight to get healthy!” Thus you can fight obesity, the root cause behind most of the diseases by healthy eating.
So, what he provides is tailored solutions for your body type, exclusively by paying a visit to his clinic!
Apart from this, he provides health education, to average people, thus making them aware of prevalent health problems, answers to queries related to diet, digestion, fat burning, hormones and more. Relevant videos are present on his website and are uploaded on you tube too.
His website serves as an online health and wellness solution, where he provides a variety of services, apart from educational videos. It also provides access to some healthy recipes that you may benefit from. He sells a variety of overpriced health supplements on his website, claiming them to be naturally pure and effective (yet they are not FDA approved and have not undergone any laboratory testing).
A one to one virtual consultation service that operates via skype is also provided such that you may get an overview of your health issues, of course not completely. Thus finally you may end up at his clinic, for therapies that his trained practitioners might prescribe! This can of course be heavy on your budget!
For losing weight, he promises to provide customized eating plans with special nutritional recommendations!
This may sound enticing!
But you should be sure that it’s not possible to have the right diagnosis done without seeing the professionals. So you will need to pay him a visit, or may be visits. Some people’s experiences do owe to the fact that his therapies and advices were wonderful, and changed their lives, while there are some who found it as a useless bargain.
Results may vary individually.
What he offers at his clinic?
Along with dietary advice he uses acupressure techniques, massages etc to destress you, so that cortisol (stress hormone) levels may be lowered. Lower cortisol (stress hormone) levels lead to increased growth hormone and Igf (insulin like growth factor) which that may trigger weight loss!
Finally, we can say that his advises are beneficial and his way of putting things across is simple yet informative. You can benefit from them but we all know if your weight is too much, you need a fully fledged plan to lose pounds and be the dream person we want to be!
