Dr. Paul Rivas Delivers 95% Obesity Cure Rate - Changes The Lives of 10,000 Patents
Controversial Treatment Using Combination of Drug Phentermine and Herbal
Therapies Described in Book, 'Turn Off The Hunger Switch'
PARAMUS, N.J., Dec. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- The following release was issued today by Prentice Hall Press: In agreement with prior research that links obesity to brain chemistry, Dr. Paul Rivas MD, board-certified internist, bariatric specialist since 1994, and member of the American Society of Bariatric Physicians, takes this claim a tremendous leap forward. He, unlike any other MD, has discovered a method of categorizing that identifies four "types" of people all with a predisposition to gain weight. The four types, which he has labeled as S, N, D, and C, are the result of deficiencies in Serotonin, Norepinephrine, or Dopamine or an acute sensitivity to Carbohydrates. Using targeted questions, Dr. Rivas identifies each person's "inner hunger switch" within minutes and assigns them to a distinct "type" based on the S, N, D, or C model. People come away with concrete knowledge of their "type" of brain chemistry problem and are started on the road to recovery. Dr. Rivas states that once he identifies a person's deficiency he is able to prescribe a low dosage of the baseline drug Phentermine either on its own or in conjunction with other drugs including; Prozac(R), Celexa(R), Meridia(R), Zoloft(R), Effexor XR(R), Tenuate(R), Wellbutrin(R) and/or the herbal supplements Ephedra, 5-HTP, Green Tea Extract, and the amino acid Tyrosine. According to Dr. Rivas, the weight loss medications currently on the market do not deliver adequate results. But, when drugs such as Meridia(R), Effexor(R) or Zoloft(R) are combined with the controversial baseline drug Phentermine, results are immediate and long lasting. Dr. Paul Rivas MD, offers his patients a specific description of the detection and treatment of obesity. His book, Turn Of The Hunger Switch - Reset Your Brain To Change Your Weight, (Prentice Hall Press, January 2002, $24.00 ISBN: 0-3752-0300-8.) takes his method public offering millions an incredible explanation for sudden significant weight gain, as well as a cure. For those who may not have the funds or the desire to undergo radical Bariatric surgery (otherwise known as stomach stapling), Rivas' method is clearly a less invasive option. BIG CONTROVERSY Phentermine was one of the "phen's" in " phen/fen," the early 90's weight loss holy-grail that offered millions excellent results. Phen/fen a.k.a. Phentermine/Fenfluramine, was pulled off the market after fenfluramine and its close relative, dexfenfluramine were believed to be connected to serious side effects such as the often-fatal, valvular heart disease. This is why anytime the media and the masses see the term "phen" there is immediate attention and concern. Rivas prescribes low dosages of phentermine and stresses the importance of close medical supervision. Phentermine when combined with other drugs under Rivas' close care offers patients incredible and immediate results with minimal if any side effects. As with any medical prescription, side effects are monitored and dosages are altered to reduce any discomfort. Rivas' mission is to educate the masses about his method and defend his position on including Phentermine in a weight loss regimen. PROGRESS AND RESULTS Numerous studies have shown that the cravings, compulsive eating, and excessive hunger leading to weight gain are a direct result of erroneous brain chemistry messages. In support of that finding, Rivas took things a step further by identifying four specific categories. Further, he has developed a no-diet, weight loss program which has been successfully tested by more than 10,000 patients since 1994 with 90% of those patients keeping the weight off for over 5 years by following a simple maintenance plan. Rivas' unique program uses common, well-tested, doctor prescribed medications, nutrients, and/or natural supplements to bring the hunger and cravings under immediate control. CREDENTIALS Paul Rivas, M.D., is a graduate of the University of Maryland medical and is a board-certified internist. He has specialized in the treatment of obesity since 1994. He has also published clinical papers on obesity, and has given numerous seminars on medical management of the condition to health care providers in the Baltimore area. Dr. Rivas has appeared on Good Morning America and was quoted in The Wall Street Journal.
