The 4 Pillars of Transformation Story

Our healthcare system has been conditioned to use the same, minimally effective approach when caring for patients – find the problem, treat the problem. Prescribing medication after medication, increasing dosages, changing prescriptions, and so on, I noticed that I was only helping patients manage their condition rather than resolving it.  And so, I was inspired to create the 4 Pillars of Transformation; a program that would result in effective, longer lasting results for my patients. 

With the 4 Pillars of Transformation, we changed the commonly used, minimally effective process into one that works – partner with the patient, identify the root of the problem, and develop a plan to treat it. 

Though a bit more involved than simply listening to a list of symptoms, we find that patient and provider alike profit from this approach to treating medical ailments. In using the 4 Pillars approach, your patient will benefit from a more personalized treatment plan, giving them insight on the actual problem allowing them to participate in the treatment which is why this program works so well. The patient will also receive education on the problem and why certain behaviors may be exacerbating symptoms, enjoy more long-term care and attention from their provider, and experience relief that lasts a lifetime because the knowledge given to them will put them in control. That leaves you with a satisfied and steady clientele likely to give you referrals! Though our program extends a bit past the typical timeline of new-patient-visit to treatment, we find that the increased interaction creates more trust in the patient-to-provider relationship, and more successful results. After implementing the 4 Pillars approach in my own practice and seeing its success, I have now made it available to you. 

The 4 Pillars of Transformation is a turnkey program I designed to help medical providers grow their practice with weight loss and wellness services. I condensed my years of experience into a streamlined program so that you may include these services into your practice without having to navigate the hurdles and stumbles I found along the way.

With This In Mind I’m Sure You’re Wondering.

What Are The 4 Pillars of Transformation?

Mental • Environmental • Behavioral • Medical

The 4 Pillars are the 4 key areas in which you can often pinpoint not what is thought to be the problem but the root of the problem which triggers that result in obesity and/or neglected overall health for our patients. These are the areas we will be focusing on throughout the program as we perfect this new strategy no just to treat our patients but to transform our patients so their medical problems will resolve.

The goal is to think resolution through transformation, not treatment based on medication. By identifying and discussing with the patient when they feel their most vulnerable to making poor choices for their health, we help set them up for lasting success. Does our patient struggle most at night when the tv is on and the kitchen pantry is full of snacks? Or perhaps a stressful day at work is what causes their scale to tip too far to the left? 

With the help of colleagues in the medical industry and my own extensive experience in the field, I have created a streamlined program for healthcare providers looking to expand their practice with weight loss and wellness treatments.

“If My Practice is Already Thriving, Why Should I Add Weight Loss and Wellness Treatments?

For starters, over two thirds of the American population is overweight. This means that more individuals will need treatments for their blood pressure, cholesterol, heart disease, and every other comorbidity that comes with the strain of being overweight. By including weight loss and wellness into your practice, you effectively save the patient from years of medications, expensive sessions with specialists, and other exhausting measures they’ll have to take to manage their health. And in the best cases, you may even help the patient manage their health before things reach these extremes.
Why give blood pressure medicine to a person who is chronically obese? The medical industry is often too guilty of treating the symptoms rather than the cause. I have focused my efforts on weight loss, because through losing, and keeping off, the weight, our patients see a decline in most all the ailments that were previously plaguing them:

  • arthritis in the joints, causing aching knees and backs
  • high blood pressure
  • high cholesterol
  • type 2 diabetes
  • heart disease
  • stroke

The list can continue.

As healthcare providers, it is our duty to effectively treat patients using a holistic approach rather than pacifying each individual ailment that stems from the root problem.

If that wasn’t enough to convince you as to why weight loss is critical to nearly any general health practice, then I will direct you towards some figures.
In 2018, the weight loss industry amassed nearly $73 billion, and is forecasted to grow about another 3% through 2023. The country clearly sees a need for transformative medicines; it is our job to provide it for them.

The 4 Pillars of Transformation was designed to help you successfully grow your practice with weight loss and wellness treatments while avoiding all the bumps and stumbles I experienced while creating my own practice. By participating in this program, you will receive 7 years of experience in the field condensed into a month of coursework.

Throughout the program, you will receive insightful instruction during the day long course, two one-on-one sessions with me to review what you’ve learned, breakdown any specific questions you may have, and build upon the initial knowledge you acquired during the day course. There will also be two group sessions where we can discuss patient scenarios, have group discussions on the material, address new questions and learn from the insights of others participating in the program. You will also have access to a program workbook that you will work through as the course goes on. Consider this your study guide, and the perfect place to continue building and solidifying the program teachings in your mind. I have taken out some of the grunt work in adding new services to your practice by providing you with form templates you can download and edit to fit the needs of your personal practice.
