There are very few events in a person’s life that can impact them in such a positive way. Bariatric surgery can dramatically improve the quality of your life, give you new hope for the future and forever end your struggle with excess weight.
People who are overweight have significant quality of life obstacles to overcome and many people in society, including many physicians, have little sympathy or compassion for your struggles. The prejudice against overweight people is widespread and all too often the only help offered is another standard weight loss program, with the same long term results as all the ones you’ve tried before, or more commonly the simple comment “Why don’t you just start to exercise and diet.”
Imagine if the recommendations for treating cancer resulted in the lousy level of success that you’ve gotten following the “diet and exercise” advice that you’ve been offered by everyone. When chronic excess weight reduces the scope of your daily activities and diminishes your thoughts and feelings about yourself, its time you finally did something that works.
The good news is that bariatric surgery has benefits far beyond its most visible result of dramatic weight loss. After surgery, many chronic illnesses markedly improve and most of patients at The N.E.W. Program have discontinued multiple medications previously required due to obesity-induced illnesses. Through our research and numerous other published studies, the connection between obesity, chronic illness and quality of life has become quite clear. One thing is certain, when substantial excess weight is lost, both chronic illnesses and quality of life improve, and The N.E.W. Program can help you reach both of these goals.
