      Why is the 5D Body Renewal Diet different from other weight loss programs?

      Read More
      • It is a medical weight loss program which specifically targets abnormal and resistant (dangerous) fat, which results in slimming and shaping of the body.
      • A highly professional team lead by a medical doctor assesses every patient.
      • In this consultation, your medical history will be evaluated.
      • The doctor will then decide whether any blood tests are necessary.
      • Registered nurses support each patient in their weight loss journey to ensure the best results are obtained.

      This 5D diet program is based on improving sensitivity to Leptin and has five components:

      • A carefully formulated low GI diet
      • Weight loss supplements/nutraceuticals to aid in the weight loss process
      • A daily meal replacement, low GI health shake
      • Daily injections of a lipotropic substance (hCG) that targets and releases abnormal fat in the body.
      • Constant medical supervision by registered nurses and doctors

      If the program is strictly adhered to, patients lose between 8 to 10 kilograms a month for women and 10 to 15 kilograms a month for men. Most participants in the diet program generally find it quite easy and feel good with high energy levels. In fact, depressed patients have mood elevation as the Leptin levels "Kick in" 7-10 days into the program. Many of our patients have tried numerous other well-known diets but find this to be the “magic diet” that actually works.

      Why we decided to create our own medical weight loss range...

      Read More

      We decided to embark on a journey of our own range of Medical Weight Loss Products due to the following two main reasons;

      1. We have looked into the safety of hCG diets and the best practices stipulated by the department of health. In order to comply with 100%, we had to develop our own program.
      2. By going directly to a manufacturer to develop our medical weight loss program, we have cut out the middleman and in doing so, we've managed to create cost savings which we have passed on to our patients.

      What makes this weight loss program different from other programs?

      Read More

      The most important reason for this is the fact that almost all other programs address only the symptoms, and not the real cause, for weight gain which is resistance to Leptin. This program helps improve Leptin sensitivity, reduce insulin resistance, high blood pressure and high cholesterol levels. This program offers a stabilisation and maintenance period once patients have reached their goal weight;

      1. Qualified medical doctors to assist you

      • Every patient has a consultation with a medical doctor to exclude contraindications to the program and ensures that any health problems that could hamper your weight loss, such as Obstructive Sleep Apnea OSA, are identified.

      2. We offer a Medical Weight Loss program which uses hCG (human Chorionic Gonadotropin) together with an eating plan to treat these causes of obesity.

      • hCG can only be prescribed by a medical doctor.
      • It is safe and effective.
      • We only use compounded bio-identical injections that have been prepared in a sterile laboratory.
      • Our hCG is prepared according to the Department of Health regulations and sealed in a sterile laboratory by a qualified pharmacist as is required by law.
      • Any vial that is not sealed and kept in refrigeration or pre-filled syringes may not have the correct effect on leptin sensitization and may not have sterile contents
      • You need the authentic, stabilized HCG at the correct daily dosage to release the correct amount of your own fat and calories in order to sustain normal body metabolism.
      • hCG can only be prescribed by a medical doctor.

      3. All patients can be screened for OSA (Obstructive Sleep Apnea), blood sugar levels, hypertension and other important conditions

      • OSA can be the cause of diabetes, metabolic syndrome and hypertension and, if not excluded in your initial examination, may affect your ability to lose weight.
      • In fact, if OSA goes untreated, any long-term success at keeping weight off will be doomed due to the chronic inflammation, chronic cortisol stimulation and systemic effects that OSA has on the body
      • Other important conditions that OSA is associated with are erectile dysfunction, short-term memory loss, daytime sleepiness and fatigue
      • OSA disrupts restorative sleep which is the period when HGH, the anti-aging hormone, is secreted.
      • Other important conditions related to optimal weight loss are also screened for namely: thyroid disease, together with liver and gut conditions which need to be functioning optimally to maintain weight loss.

      4. Registered nurses will support and aid you during this time

      • Initially, your blood glucose and blood pressure will be monitored. A body stat or InBody analysis, your BMI (Body Mass Index) and body measurements are taken as well.
      • When you come in for a check-up they will closely monitor these parameters to make sure you are losing weight as expected.
      • If you are not losing sufficient weight, they will assist you in identifying the problem and help you correct it.

      5. You are not alone!

      • There is an entire professional team of medical doctors, nurses and support staff to help you reach your goals and keep you motivated throughout your journey.

      6. State of the art weight loss devices are available to help you

      • I-lipo™, Velashape™, Exilis, Titania and Accent are centimetre loss devices and a valuable add-on to your program after the initial weight comes off. These can help you deal with any loose, sagging skin or residual fatty deposits left after losing the weight.
      • Cryo-Lipo™ will help reduce those bumps and bulges that are difficult to remove with weight loss and exercise alone and is recommended when you are close to your ideal weight.

      7. An optional five-day cleansing and preparation program before you start your weight loss program

      • The majority of people living in our modern day world have some form of gut dysbiosis/ abnormal microbiota which will dampen any successful weight loss program.
      • To help your body prepare for the journey ahead, this colon/gut cleansing program can help remove unhealthy bacteria and yeast from the body. This colon/gut cleansing will facilitate successful weight loss.
      • Removing toxins from the body will help the gastrointestinal tract function better for optimal weight loss.

      8. For your health, additional tests can be ordered to exclude medical conditions that will slow down your weight loss

      • An overnight Sleep Study can be done in the comfort of your home to exclude OSA which has deleterious effects on one's health
      • A multi-gene DNA Health and DNA Diet gene test can be ordered to exclude conditions such as metabolic syndrome, elevated cholesterol levels and others.

      What causes Leptin resistance?

      Read More

      The Leptin resistance increases dramatically with:

      • Cortisone medication
      • Any hormonal shift of progesterone and estrogen. For this reason, some young girls are prone to obesity during puberty, women who are taking contraceptives, pregnant women and those who have had hysterectomies, especially when it goes together with hormone replacement therapy, menopause
      • Stress and anxiety increase Leptin resistance
      • antidepressants increase Leptin resistance
      • viral infections increase Leptin resistance
      • antibiotics increase Leptin resistance
      • Extended anaesthetics, emotional trauma and compulsive eating habits.

    I was feeling very fatigued and burned out everyday. I was working out so hard, 5 days a week, but nothing was happening as I was not getting the results that I wanted and eventually I was frustrated.

    I have been on the HCG programme with Dr Pierce at Skin Renewal morningside and I have never seen such amazing results in my life.

    Dr Pierce introduced me to the programme because I so badly wanted a lifestyle change, I wanted to be healthy from the inside and out. I lost 2kg’s within the first 2 weeks of the programme and thats when I knew that the programme is working for me but more than that my energy levels were improving and thats exactly what I wanted achieve. Dr Pierce has been such an amazing support, he literally held my hand. I’m now 7kgs lighter, super confident, very healthy and I am feeling like I’m on top of the world.

    I would also love to thank the amazing and friendly Staff at Skin renewal morningside for all their support. The environment at Skin renewal morningside is so inviting and so beautiful.

This programme has given me what I have been looking for: a boost in the right direction to get rid of stubborn abnormal fat, without compromising the healthy fat and muscle, and still maintaining my energy levels and functionality at work and home! I've lost 15kgs and 3 dress sizes in 12 weeks, and my hubby is delighted with his happy arm candy! It takes commitment and some serious will power, but it's worth it!

I just love the way they have encouraged and supported me in my journey!

    I've been coming to this branch for over two years. The service I received makes you feel so at home! Staff always treat you with respect and ensure that your health is always their number 1 priority. The three-monthly visit for maintenance check-in is always an experience to remember.

    Body Renewal Diet ook hier by Willowbridge, maar my ervaring van elke keer by iemend anders te weeg was vir my bietjie "demotivating"... maar by Christine sien ek uit om te kom weeg! Sy motiveer my en is altyd opgewek en "excited" om 'n mens aantemoedig! Body Renewal Diet en Christine is 'n wen kombinasie, Dankie baie!

    I am very delighted to say that in my 61 years (most of which was a battle with weight), this is the first therapist that really made me feel important and she's really concerned about my progress. Maybe the product is good, but my therapist is better!

    'n Motiverende sessie wat individuele "esteem" lig deur Willowbridge. Die onderliggende aanname word deurgaans gevolg dat sukses binne jou bereiek is en dat ek 'n wenner kan wees. Christine is die regte "advocate" vir suksesvolle gewigsverlies wat my as persoon "lig" en laat voortbeur om my doel te bereik!

    Review -"One of the wisest choices that I have ever made in my entire life"

    Body Renewal Diet.

    Dr Van der Merwe pulled no punches when explaining to me exactly what this programme entailed. I was then required to take a firm decision as to whether or not I was prepared to go the whole way and to take my weight loss programme seriously. I took the decision to take it very seriously. I was weighed, measured and photographed and then given the opportunity to decide what I felt that I should weigh. I wasn’t too sure about what my weight should be, but decided what clothing size I would like to comfortably fit into. Dr Toni agreed with me that she felt the size I had chosen was probably correct and together we decided on an appropriate weight.

    To cut a long story short, I reached my goal weight within a period of four months. When I had to return for my “after” photographs, Dr Toni was away on leave and I was then seen by Dr Dalize Willemse. Once again, a most pleasant consultation with a real professional, and just on two years later, even though I did have a slight relapse after the first year and gained six kilograms, by returning to the programme, have once again lost the excess weight and I am still on my goal weight.

    The outstanding and professional treatment which I received from all the staff at this outstanding clinic and the results which have been obtained has absolutely turned my life around. I have a zest for life and cope pretty well with my hectic schedule. Even now, when I am in the Western Cape and happen to be at the Willowbridge Centre, I pop in to greet the staff and am greeted by them all by name and as though my presence has just made their day. Real professionals!

    At the beginning of July 2011, after suffering years of pain caused by a condition known as Polymyalgia, I came to hear of research that had been done by medical practitioners which was also being investigated by a clinic group known as Skin Renewal. I made enquiries and was advised to make an appointment with one of the doctors in attendance at one of the clinics in the Cape Town area. I did so and was referred to the clinic situated in the Willowbridge Shopping Centre. This turned out to be one of the wisest choices that I have ever made in my entire life.

    My first appointment was with a most gracious and petite Dr Toni van der Merwe. After a fairly comprehensive question/answer examination, she had to drop the bombshell. This 162cm lump weighing 90kg was going to pose a problem and very kindly she told me that, unless I was prepared to get rid of a fair amount of weight, there would be no point in attempting to start treatment for Polymyalgia. This is where I was introduced to the Body Renewal Diet.
