NATURAL AND INNOVATIVE

WEIGHT LOSS

LET US SHOW YOU HOW YOU CAN GET TO THE ROOT CAUSE OF YOUR WEIGHT ISSUES, UTILIZING THE POWER OF FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE

Our

Mission

We understand losing weight can be one of the biggest challenges that people face and we are here to help you on your journey. What sets us apart is our view of  weight gain as a sign of a greater underlying health issue, rather than just a symptom. Instead of focusing on losing weight, we concentrate on the root cause of the weight gain. This inevitably leads not only to weight loss, but to feeling better in general, and improvement of overall health.

OUR

APPROACH

We document your health history using the state of the art Living Matrix system and then combine that with comprehensive and innovative, take home, do it yourself, functional medicine lab testing, which utilizes the power of (AI) Artificial Intelligence to interpret the results. This translates as the most accurate and individualized interpretation and treatment plan possible.

Our approach breaks down the health imbalances that lead to weight gain into 3 categories: 1) gut 2) emotions 3) metabolism. With hundreds of patient encounters, we have seen that peak weight loss is best achieved when optimizing all 3 of these parameters.

OUR

MOTIVATION

The motivation to start this center began with the recognition of the failure of other weight loss clinics to educate patients on how to permanently lose weight. They use quick fixes like medication to speed up the metabolism and cut cravings. Although you may lose weight during the treatment period of these quick weight loss programs, the weight eventually returns.

Our approach is dramatically different. We actually reveal the reasons for why you originally began to put on those extra pounds, and currently have difficulty losing them. It puts you in control, helping you to develop new healthy habits. We teach you how to reset your 1) gut 2) emotions and 3) metabolism and keep them in check in the future. And best of all, we exclusively use natural methods to reach your weight loss goals. This path ultimately leads to not only permanent weight loss, but a healthier you. We empower you to achieve optimal wellness!

Our team

Joshua Gothelf, PA-C and Sheera Davis, LCSW are commited to helping you discover your weight loss solution. By combining their knowledge of the physiological and emotional causes of weight gain, they can empower you to achieve your health goals.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

"When my 17 year old daughter was experiencing hair loss, inability to concentrate at school (despite always being a straight A student), and extreme fatigue I took her to the pediatrician and had blood drawn. We were referred to an endocrinologist who drew more labs. The endocrinologist called me a few days later to tell me that my daughter had hypothyroidism and wanted to start her on Synthroid. After doing some research on my own I found out that my daughter actually had Hashimoto’s. The endocrinologist told me I didn’t want to be one of “those moms” when I told her I wanted my daughter on something more natural and not this medication with harmful side effects. After hearing about Ark Wellness Center through a friend, I made an appointment and was introduced to Josh. He sat with us and listened to my daughter's symptoms and my concerns. He answered all of our questions and explained how all of my daughter's symptoms were connected and would be helped a great deal by a natural medicine. After looking over her labs he let us know what the correct dose of Nature-Throid was for her as well as what supplements would be appropriate. My daughter began to feel her symptoms subside almost immediately. I appreciate so much that Josh actually listened to us! The conventional doctors only wanted to look at one item on her labs and hurried to give her the medicine that “everyone else” takes for their hypothyroidism. Josh looked at my daughter as an individual and wanted the treatment to be specific to her needs. We are so thankful to have found Josh!"

FUNCTIONAL 

MEDICINE

IS WORTH IT

By getting to the root cause of your weight gain now, functional medicine will save  you on rising health care costs in the future. The concept of functional medicine is to get to the root cause of disease, and not just view illness as a collection of symptoms.The body is one integrated system, where one process depends on the other. With obesity being a proven risk factor for heart disease, diabetes, hypertension, and some forms of cancer, it is a simple choice to start now.  Let us show you how you can lose weight naturally.

״

Now the springs of the deep and the floodgates of the heavens had been closed, and the rain had stopped falling from the sky.  The water receded steadily from the earth. Noah then removed the covering from the ark and saw that the surface of the ground was dry.

Genesis 8:2-3,13

 

Build the ARK of Wellbeing

Nourish the ROOTS

Revive the ORCHID
Emotions
Ignite the SPARK
Metabolism
The Ark of Noah and its 3 levels provided refuge from the flood waters and brought its passengers to safety on dry land. So too the ark of wellbeing contains 3 levels: The Roots, The Orchid, and The Spark. The flood waters are physical, mental, and spiritual imbalance and the dry land is the mending of one's health. Together these 3 levels can ultimately bring us refuge from our flood and bring us to safety on our dry land.
