Myrtle Beach, SC (prHWY.com) May 17, 2012 - Obesity in our country, and particularly in our state of South Carolina, is not only reaching an epidemic level but is piercing and creeping into (and destroying) our forming offspring from a very young age. America is overweight. Millions of Americans are fighting the "battle of the bulge."
The economic cost of obesity related illnesses were estimated at more than $200 billion! There is a direct correlation between obesity and disease risk: Adipose tissue (fat tissue) is a major site of estrogen synthesis in women. Scientists link a BMI of 28 to 30 with an increase in cancer risk. Obesity leads to elevated levels of estrogen. High unbalanced estrogen level increases cancer risk. Excess estrogen is also linked with reproductive system diseases including heart disease, hypertension, diabetes, osteoarthritis, cancer, sleep apnea, abdominal hernias, varicose veins, gout, gall bladder disease, respiratory problems and liver malfunction.

Our mission at AWAREmed Health and Wellness Resource Center is to timely and effectively address this crisis by raising the public awareness level about obesity the diseases related to obesity and the how to prevent and combat obesity.

Therefore we are offering a health program specific to obesity called Obesity U-Turn! This program is a unique approach to wellness. Our user-friendly program incorporates findings popularized by Drs. Dean Ornish, Caldwell Esselstyn, Jr., and Mike Roizen, who have shown again and again that proper lifestyle management can reverse disease.

Following patients for five years, Dr. Ornish found that those who focused on diet and exercise, along with group support, were able to:
* Reduce their waistlines
* Lower blood pressure
* "Turn off" genes that promote cancer
* Increase sleep quality
* Boost energy
* Reduce LDL ("lethal") cholesterol and raise HDL ("healthy") cholesterol

Using methods that support the body and immune system, Dr. Akoury incorporates natural healing treatments with nutraceutical agents, shown to be effective against a broad spectrum of mood disorders. It is our goal to assist our patients individually, to understand their specific disorder and to create a healing regimen that conquers mood imbalances, and enhances vitality of life!
