The second part of the program is a lifestyle behavioral therapy and nutritional coaching. Program participants will immediately begin working with a coach to develop a roadmap for success.

His practice is based in bio identical hormone therapy; BodyLogicMD of Greenville and Greenville Rejuvenation, Dr. Orbeck dedicates his practice to helping women and men find relief from hormonal imbalances such as menopause, andropause (the male menopause), adrenal fatigue and thyroid disorders by using a personal functional approach to wellness, combining customized nutrition and fitness regimens with bio identical hormone therapy.

Dr. Orbeck utilizes advanced hormonal application through subcutaneous pellet therapy and is a national speaker on advanced hormone and pellet therapy. Dr. Kenneth Orbeck received his undergraduate degree from Calvin College in 1983 and completed his Doctorate in Osteopathic Medicine at the University of Osteopathic Medicine and Health Sciences in 1987, where he served as student chairman for the American College of General Practitioners.

Dr. Orbeck is a fellow in Anti-aging, Regenerative Medicine (FAAFM), and is certified by the American board of Anti-aging and Regenerative Medicine (ABAARM).

Dr. Kenneth Orbeck stated, “As a physician working in integrative and functional medicine, I encounter individuals who are seeking optimal health. One of the greatest challenges and concerns of many patients is regarding their weight. Weight abnormalities are complex and require a comprehensive approach to achieve recovery and optimal metabolic health. Although many factors are involved in weight management, caloric intake must be addressed regarding a person’s addiction to food or “need to feed.” Psychological issues play a very important role in oversized individuals as well. In the forefront of addiction medicine is the use of naltrexone, a proven treatment regimen that can curtail the severe cravings often encountered by victims of addiction. Although naltrexone has been proven highly effective, current application methods lack the desired consistent serum levels needed to avoid unnecessary side effects. Cutting edge developments have allowed the use of naltrexone to be inserted through subcutaneous application which ensures constant drug delivery and controlled serum levels avoiding the unnecessary side effects. This exciting development has shown great promise in addiction medicine including weight management. I am very enthusiastic about the potential benefits that can now be offered to individuals suffering from weight and addiction issues.”

Lourdes Felix, CFO, COO and Director, stated, “We are proud to announce launch of our new weight loss program and the addition of Dr. Kenneth Orbeck as Medical Director. We believe Dr. Orbeck will be invaluable to the program and will be instrumental in fulfilling UnCraveRx’s objective to help individuals who have struggled to maintain their weight loss over time, and to help those who would benefit from losing weight and building on their progress. Research has shown, individuals that struggle with excess weight are dealing with multifaceted circumstances of biological, genetic and behavioral factors. Our approach is unique and will be able to address the complexities of losing weight and helping individuals optimize their health and wellness.”
