Doctor to start new health and wellness program

Ada — After practicing obstetrics, gynecology and delivering babies for more than 20 years, Dr. John Siegle of Ada’s Women’s Health Center said he is now seeing both male and female patients for health and wellness.

He has stopped doing obstetrics and delivering babies, he said, but he will continue to do gynecology and surgery.

“I was looking to expand the practice and do other things as far as healthcare is concerned,” he said.  “About a year and a half ago, we started into a wellness and weight management practice.”

Siegle said he feels medicine is changing to encourage wellness and more preventative medicine rather than acting after the problem presents itself.  One of these problems, he said, is that 73 percent of Americans are overweight.

“Our approach to healthy lifestyle is not very good.  We need to change our approach with regard to our eating habits and our overall approach to fitness,” Siegle said.

He said some of his patients have lost up to 70 pounds on the program.

“I’ve done surgery for years but if you can get someone to lose weight, you can do them a much bigger favor than what surgery does,” he said.  “It’s been really special to see people take off tremendous amounts of weight.”

He said his health and wellness practice has been as rewarding as any part of medicine he’s practiced.

Siegle’s approach includes natural remedies such as amino acids and herbal supplements, diet pills, and the Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG) Diet Guide.

“We’re also using some wellness products that improve health care.  Some of the products include a high-grade Omega 3 fish oil,” he said.  “In addition to that, we use the enzyme CoQ10, which is an energy enzyme.”

He said he has been giving talks around town at local churches and businesses regarding weight management.  He said he’s interested in talking to any group that wants to learn about wellness and weight loss.

Siegle said he’s also started a free walking program at Wintersmith Park at 6 a.m. on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays.  He said anyone is welcome to show up and join the walkers.  He said his approach is similar to Forrest Gump’s.

“I’m just going to start walking,” he said.
