The subject of this case study was a 34-year old man who presented with 43% body fat and a BMI of 47.1 kg/m2.
Upon reviewing the case history, the doctor decided to treat the subject for a period of 9 months using the Integrated Approach that included nutritional therapy, ayurvedic herb support, vitamins, minerals, dietary supplements, regular exercise and lifestyle modifications.
