Weight Control

woman-exercise-heartrateWe live in a paradigm where a woman is thought to be beautiful and sexy if she has big breasts, a small waist, and a tight curvy bottom. Have you seen a lot of real women who fit this mold – especially after they have had life’s most incredible experience of giving birth to new life? Real women have curves and curves are beautiful! However, being severely overweight or obese puts you at increased risk for the following health conditions:

  • Cancers (endometrial, breast, and colon)
  • Cardiometabolic syndrome (metabolic abnormalities that increase the risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD) and type 2 diabetes)
  • Coronary heart disease
  • Dyslipidemia
  • Gall bladder disease
  • Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD)
  • Hypertension
  • Obstructive sleep apnea
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Stroke
  • Type 2 diabetes

Therefore, rather than having a goal of being skinny, the goal is to be healthy and fit. At the Health and Healing Center, we help you learn lifestyle and eating habits to promote health with the following side effects: vibrant energy, restful sleep, beautiful complexion and normal body composition – without starvation and deprivation.

As most women can attest, attaining and maintaining a health body weight is no easy task! And, to add insult to injury, as our bodies age our metabolism slows, making it even more difficult to burn more calories than we take in. After menopause, women face a whole new set of issues with the loss of estrogen and serotonin and the predominance of testosterone, which can encourage insulin resistance and abdominal weight gain. We all know we can burn fat tissue with increased exercise, but there are few of us who have the time to devote to traditional exercise regimes that guarantee success. In addition to sedentary lifestyles, a myriad of conditions cause our bodies to gain body fat. These include:

  • Hormonal imbalance (including thyroid dysfunction and insulin resistance)
  • Adrenal imbalance (chronic stress)
  • Neurotransmitter imbalance
  • Impaired detoxification
  • Digestive imbalance
  • Systemic inflammation

AWOL (A Way Of Life) Weight Management Program

I’ve tried many diets that I didn’t follow through with; taking this class taught me how certain foods affect my mind and body. Instead of not eating something because it’s not on my diet, which many times is not a powerful motivator for me, I now decide on what I eat by how it affects me physically and mentally. This is a much more powerful motivator to eat well. I lost 35 lbs. over a 6 month period and am continuing to lose weight eating good food.*


My AWOL experience was truly a life changing experience!  In the eight weeks that I attended the meetings I learned so much about foods and how they interact with our bodies.  I thought I had a good understanding about the “good foods and “bad foods” because I had been a dieter all my life, but was I ever mistaken!  Dr. Hamilton takes this to a whole different level and you begin to see how our bodies are made any how they utilize what we put into them.  Unless we take charge of our health, we will not stand a chance for healthy  aging.  The incredible weight loss was a wonderful by product for all the knowledge gained.  Yes, I was hesitant thinking – is this one more diet craze but I am truly grateful that I signed up for this wonderful program.  The individualized attention from Dr. Hamilton and her staff always made me feel appreciated and that I was so important to all of them.  Uncovering some of the other medical issues was just a by-product to this program because of the personal attention the doctor takes with each participant.  AWOL is the way to go!!!*


I attended AWOL from August to November 2015 and was skeptical when I began the classes.  Dr. Hamilton provided education regarding the impact of different foods and how they were processed (or not processed) by our bodies.  The information was so enlightening that it led me to change the way I was eating, which led to a significant weight loss.  I appreciate Dr. Hamilton’s passion for educating people, particularly women.    Once I knew what I was really doing to my body – I then made a decision to change my lifestyle and don’t regret that choice.  Thank you to Dr. Hamilton for all her help!!
I would recommend participating in Dr. Hamilton’s AWOL program to anyone who is tired of not being able to lose weight and really is open to being educated.*
