OPTIMAL HEALTH & WEIGHT LOSS

Medical Weight Loss In Lexington, SC

At Cardinal Wellness and Aesthetics, our medical weight loss program was developed with the medical expertise of our doctors and nutritionists. This program takes each patient through a comprehensive health exam, BMI data, and patient feedback. We develop a custom program to help you set short and long term goals to lose weight.
Many weight loss programs are very successful in the short term but do not lead to a reduction in outcomes. However, our goal is to be successful in the short term and achieve overall optimal health and prevention of chronic disease. We understand the myth that calorie restriction and/or more exercise consistently leads to better health and weight loss. Frequently, our metabolism decreases after calorie restriction leading to the Yo-Yo Effect. The correct combination of losing fat and maintaining muscle mass can be accomplished with the right information and education.

We utilize data from the study of the Blue Zones where these populations rarely get the diseases of aging that we see in our country. This information has led to programs at the prestigious Cleveland Clinic to reverse Coronary Heart Disease. Also at the University of California at San Francisco under Dr. Ornish his predominantly Plant-Based Program has reversed Coronary Stenosis. It is interesting that his team documented the enhancement of good genes and the down-regulation of unfavorable genes.

Dr. Martin and his clinical staff will closely monitor your progress and modify your program if needed. We believe that a clinical Nutritionist/Dietitian should be involved with the execution of the plan to achieve optimal health and weight loss. The program is individualized for each patient. We are here to collaborate with our patients taking into account their cultural, social, and religious beliefs.

“Dr. Martin and staff care like family and at the same time are knowledgeable and at the forefront of wellness care. I came to him for fatigue and wanting to live longer. He has guided me and his staff have supported me toward teaching the goal of good energy, good sleep, better eating habits, balancing me through supplements, and most importantly, teaching me about what and why.”
– Mary C.
“It was good to feel good again! After almost a year of decreased energy, weight gain, and an overall sense of sadness, the hormone therapy Dr. Martin prescribed for me brought me back to feeling normal again. I saw results from workouts and yoga I had not seen in a long time! After only a month or so of hormone therapy, I started sleeping normally again, without waking up in the middle of the night, unable to go back to sleep. My downward spiral stopped and then reversed itself, and the scary path of aging did not seem quite so frightening. Dr. Martin spends quality, unrushed time with me explaining the science behind these treatments. He also provides tons of practical information about nutrition, exercise, and rest. Thank you, Dr. Hank! I am so lucky to have you and your wonderful practice in my life!””

“I had the privilege of shadowing with Dr. Hank a few months ago. It was wonderful to see a doctor take the time to talk to patients and provide a holistic approach to age management, hormonal therapy, & genetic testing. The entire staff at Cardinal is helpful & friendly and the office is beautiful!”

“My wife and I met with Dr. Martin and Monica back in June 2021. Dr. Martin spoke with us about the health benefits from proper diet and exercise. We decided to follow his advice and the results are amazing. When I started seeing him I weighed 193 lbs and was on two blood pressure meds and a statin to control cholesterol. After about two months I am down to 173 (my wife lost 20lbs as well) and have dropped one blood pressure med and the statin. Also he was able to get my testosterone levels up to where it needs to be. He showed us a whole new world as far as diet. This is a way of eating that we can stick with and maintain our weight and fitness goals. Dr. Martin and staff are very personable and knowledgeable on how to live a healthy lifestyle. He and Monica truly care about our health. The appointments are never rushed and all questions are answered.”

“I have known Dr. Hank Martin for years first as a colleague and then as my personal physician. Dr. Martin is a genuinely pleasant, caring and compassionate individual who is extremely knowledgable and always very enthusiastic about learning what is on the cutting edge of medicine so he can apply that to his patients to help them live their life to it’s fullest. Most all physicians are taught how to treat illnesses and manage diseases. What makes Dr. Martin so unique is his sincere focus on prevention of disease, maximizing quality of life and maintaining functionality especially as one ages. His genuine positive, enthusiastic and likable personality, his decades of experience combined with a vast in-depth knowledge base integrated with the most up-to-date medical break-throughs and treatment modalities makes him a rare commodity in today’s healthcare market.”

“What a difference a year makes! A year ago in April I was blessed to learn that our family doctor of many years was beginning a new practice focusing on wellness and age management. I had no idea what a difference I would see in my over all health and wellbeing after beginning Hormone Replacement Therapy as well as personalized instruction in nutrition and exercise. The positive difference physically, mentally and emotionally is incredible. I had heard that HRT was the fountain of youth and I can now testify to that. I feel better, have more energy and know that the steps I am taking through Dr. Martin’s instruction has been and will continue to be life changing for me. Dr. Martin truly cares about my health and takes time to answer all my questions patiently and thoroughly which in this day and age is rare. He is truly a blessing to not only me but my husband as well and we are so grateful to have him by our side through this season in our lives.”
