Wellness Program

Welcome to Huron Gastro’s Wellness Program. Our specialized team of gastroenterologists, nutritional experts, and clinical staff are eager to help you achieve and maintain a healthy weight.

As you may know, in losing weight, you will significantly reduce your risk of diabetes, heart disease, and cancer, as well as optimize your digestive health and wellbeing. Losing weight can be a frustrating and emotional experience, but our aim is to partner with you on your weight-loss journey—providing guidance, support, and encouragement every step of the way.

Our Wellness Program is designed for people who have found it challenging to lose weight through diet and exercise alone. It is a one-year program, which offers a strategy that blends a physician-supervised diet (which includes the OPTIFAST meal-replacement program), personalized fitness and nutrition, and a weekly support-group clinic.
