Reform Health, Not Healthcare
September 23, 2009
As the debate over U.S. healthcare continues to rise in intensity and complexity, Dr. Posner and his Serotonin-Plus Weight Loss Program are focused on reducing the need for healthcare. Obesity has been linked to serious health problems, including heart disease and diabetes; such issues are growing in number as the waistline of Americans steadily increases and thus, more dollars are needed for healthcare. Overweight individuals can attain significant health benefits and can avoid the high costs of added healthcare simply by reforming their health by losing weight.
Dr. Posner’s highly effective Serotonin-Plus Weight Loss Program averages a weight loss of 35 pounds in 12 weeks. The program utilizes the patented Serotonin-Plus formula, which has been proven to reduce carbohydrate cravings and aid in weight loss. The Serotonin-Plus program focuses on lifestyle changes, where patients are taught how to lose weight effectively through a transitional diet plan that helps to modify behavior and teach portion control. Aside from having a 100% safety profile, the Serotonin-Plus Weight Loss program is 99% effective; the program has helped over 9,000 patients achieve their weight loss and the pursuit of a healthier lifestyle.
In keeping with Dr. Posner’s initiative to reform health, Serotonin-Plus will now offer the highly praised Serotonin-Plus Weight Loss Program free to two adults within the community each month. Individuals can nominate themselves or someone they know that is in need of this worthwhile program. Qualified candidates are those that have a BMI greater than 30, have health problems related to excess weight and those that are affected daily by their weight. Consideration will first be given to those who are unable to afford the cost of a medically supervised weight loss program. Nominations can be made on the Serotonin-Plus Weight Loss website, http://www.spdiet.com, by following the “Adam Katz Memorial Weight Loss Program” link.
Dr. Posner and Serotonin-Plus are committed to giving back to the community; by offering the FREE Community Program, the first steps are being taken to fight obesity and the need for costly healthcare.

DC Doctor Presents Breakthrough Serotonin Research at The American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine 17th Annual Congress. Research is being included in the Academy’s 2009 Medicine Textbook
April 2, 2009
Doctor says lack of serotonin results in an increase in appetite and carb cravings. Since men and women can’t absorb serotonin from food, a patented, scientifically formulated natural oral serotonin supplementation is an answer to weight loss failure.
Dr. Robert Posner is a pioneer in serotonin research and the adverse effects of disruptions in serotonin levels resulting in carb cravings and an increase in appetite. “Everyone has been hearing how a cortisol imbalance leads to belly fat,” said Dr. Posner, “Comparatively speaking, a serotonin imbalance leads to carb carvings and an increase in appetite. Fluctuating serotonin levels are often the culprit of weight loss failure.” Posner is presenting his groundbreaking research for the second time to hundreds of doctors attending The American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine 17th Annual Congress April 23rd in Orlando, Florida. Posner last spoke to the group in December, 2008 In Las Vegas. Posner has summarized his research in a chapter which will be included in The American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine Textbook 2009, currently in production.
“I consider it to be an honor to be invited back to speak at the conference and am excited to continue presenting my research on serotonin,” said Dr. Posner, “Although serotonin can be found naturally in foods like bananas and nuts, you cannot increase serotonin levels in the body by ingesting food. The total body content of serotonin is 10 to 12 milligrams, which is about one thirtieth of an aspirin, and that amount has a profound effect on appetite, carb cravings, mood, memory, learning, sleep and other cardiovascular functions. Any disruption in levels causes a huge disruption to normal body functioning.”
“People think they are weak if they give in to food cravings, when actually an imbalance in serotonin levels can make it next to impossible to lose weight,” said Dr. Posner, “Nearly everyone knows what it’s like to have carb cravings under stress and nearly every woman has experienced mood and appetite changes during certain stress periods of her cycle.”
Dr. Posner has been in private practice in the Northern Virginia area for 20 years as an internal medicine physician. Dr. Posner developed the Serotonin-Plus Weight Loss Program and the Serotonin Weight Management System™ as a result of his groundbreaking research into the effects of oral serotonin supplementation on weight loss. During the last seven years, nearly 8,000 patients have lost extraordinary amounts of weight through his program which has a 99% success rate and 100% safety record. Dr. Robert Posner developed and patented the Serotonin Formula™, a unique oral serotonin supplement. The United States Patent and Trademark Office issued a patent for this invention in January, 2000 (U.S. Patent Number 6,017,946). He has also researched the concept of serotonin replacement for serotonin imbalance conditions, such as depression, chronic fatigue, migraine headaches, premenstrual syndrome, fibromyalgia and myofascial pain syndrome. He has been invited to present Medical Grand Rounds to the medical staff at the Naval Hospital, Portsmouth, Virginia in September, 2009. Dr. Posner’s book, “Doctor, I have a Chemical Imbalance” – The Serotonin Story, was released in June 2002 and gives in-depth analysis of his research. His second book “Stress Eater Diet” released in 2008, is an easy to read pocket guide designed to help woman everywhere with weight issues and is being promoted in Women’s Health Magazine April 2009 edition. Posner’s diet plan was featured on the cover of Woman’s World Magazine January 2009 and he has been interviewed as a weight loss expert on local television.

Dr. Robert Posner, founder of the Serotonin-Plus Weight Loss Program, the largest medically supervised weight loss program in the region, has opened a satellite office in National Harbor.
“For years enthusiastic patients have been traveling from all over the metro area to take part in my program. It just makes sense to open a satellite office in National Harbor for travel convenience.” Posner has partnered with Michael Chiaramonte, M.D., Medical Director of the Bella Cosmetic Surgery Center. Locally, Posner has four locations: Burke, Chantilly, Bethesda and now National Harbor.
Nationally, Posner has licensed his program to board certified doctors in New Jersey, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Southern Maryland and soon New York City. “Thousands of Washingtonians have shrunk their waistlines over the past 7 years. On average, patients lose 30 pounds in 12 weeks. We have a 99% success rate and a 100% safety record. It’s only natural that I expand nationally so people across the country can benefit from this one-of-a-kind weight loss program.” said Dr. Posner.
The business expansion comes on the heels of national exposure, both in the media and medical community. The January 12th, 2009 edition of Woman’s World Magazine featured Dr. Posner’s weight loss program in a cover story. And Posner just published his second book “Stress Eater’s Diet” which is an easy to read guide for women on tips to avoid stress eating during stressful times, like a recession. Woman’s Health Magazine introduces the book in an upcoming edition.
In December, Posner spoke to hundreds of doctors at the The American Academy on Anti-Aging Medicine 16th Annual Congress in Las Vegas, where he is regarded as one of the top experts in the world on serotonin and how imbalances increase appetite and carb cravings. “Everyone has been hearing how a cortisol imbalance leads to belly fat,” said Dr. Posner, “Comparatively speaking, a serotonin imbalance leads to carb carvings and an increase in appetite.
