Dr. Seltzer's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Seltzer "There's a reason so many people have trusted Dr. Charlie Seltzer to help them meet their weight loss and fitness goals. It's because Dr. Seltzer (or "Charlie" as he's known to his patients and clients) understands first-hand what they're going through. For years, Dr. Seltzer struggled with his own weight and lack of fitness before realizing that fad diets and quick fixes simply don't work in the long run. He then began using the very methods and approaches he uses in his practice today to finally gain control over his weight and life. With his personal passion and commitment to helping others, Dr. Seltzer launched Lean4Life to share his approach to health and wellbeing. Through medically supervised nutrition, exercise, medication and supplementation, and lifestyle modification, Dr. Seltzer's program has helped countless individuals regain their health, increase their vitality and slow the aging process."

Patient Comments (1)
Charlie has been the only doctor to give thyroid medication a chance to see if it would help and it did! His program for weight loss isn't like anything you've experienced and after many past failed attempts this program has been a huge success! I am half my size in clothing, feel great, have energy and lost 60lbs so far! Charlie is very supportive and is on your side! He will help you with your goals! It will require your commitment and time but the reward is better health for you.
This makes me incredibly happy. I just wish I knew who wrote it.
