about weight loss at The STOP Clinic

There are many weight loss fads such as Keto, Adkins, Paleo, Mediterranean Diet, gastric bypass surgery, Gundry, fasting, etc.  But these are only fads and not sustainable.  Yes, some of these diets cause us to lose weight quickly for the first month.  After that, we often revert to old patterns and regain the weight quickly.  Many of these diets cause harmful effects to our body.

The fastest way to lose weight and keep it off is by learning to eat pure and natural foods and learning healthy eating patterns.  Why reinvent the wheel?  Hypocrates said, “Let thy food be thy medicine”.

But the first questions should be, “Do you actually know why you are overweight?  What is causing you to gain weight and keep it?  Are you tired of having little energy and feeling sick and tired?”

The STOP Clinic opened in 1992 to help people stop smoking.  Friends of the new non-smokers began calling in to join our “weight-loss program”.  “My friend came there to stop smoking and lost 6 pounds!  I want to come into your weight program!”  Within 3 months, we developed a weight loss program to offer the public.

After that, our programs “took a life of their own.”  Thousands have used our programs to stop smoking, lose weight and fight chronic disease and illnesses.  We have served people from all over the United States and several foreign countries… Paris, Canada, Puerto Rico, Cancun, Columbia and Pakistan.

We can make it easy for you to regain your health and energy by detoxing your body from illness and inflammation.

Call or book an appointment today for a consultation and to reserve a time for your program.

The most weight our clients have lost is 1 to 2 pounds per day, 3 to 14 pounds in one week, 28 pounds in one month and as much as 51 pounds in 7 weeks. This is a rapid detox and rapid weight-loss program. After the first month, you can expect to lose weight at the minimum rate of 3 to 5 pounds per week, depending on how aggressive you want to be and how overweight you are.

Our electrical stimulation treatments block the cravings from sugar, carbs, processed foods and junk. Behavior modification techniques help you lose the weight successfully and learn ways to prevent it from coming back! Lose weight naturally by choosing fresh foods from the grocery store or farmers market.

Our treatment protocol is based on an ancient Chinese protocol for rapid drug detoxification. Our goal is to help you get rid of inflammation, the toxic waste buildup stored in your fat cells and colon.

With our weight loss program, you will NOT have to worry about loose and saggy skin !

After detoxing, your body feels cleaner and lighter. Moods and energy improve.  Our treatment allows you to delete unhealthy foods, drugs and stimulants from the diet without having withdrawal symptoms and cravings.

Pure foods give you energy and a strong immune system. Our weight-loss treatment allows you to rapidly lose the unwanted pounds by avoiding processed foods and foods that deprive you of energy by causing inflammation in your gut.

Regardless of what you may have learned early in life, when you lose weight quickly, you gain extreme new energy, feel better than ever, and are excited about your efforts.  As a result of this new image, you will be more likely to maintain your new eating patterns. If you are an emotional eater, we can use energy work or self-hypnosis techniques to help you combat the emotions that may have kept you in trouble in the past.

YOU have the power to take responsibility for your health and WE are here to help you take that lead. Get started today!

What do Belly Fat, Inflammation, Hot Flashes, Impotency and Heart Disease have in common with each other? Inflammation and toxicity are the root cause of all disease.


Is erectile dysfunction a condition of old age or poor diet?  Men as young as 35 years of age struggle with erectile dysfunction. They often cannot have an erection or hold one. Blood is simply not flowing to the penis as designed.


There is a strong relationship between erectile dysfunction, diabetes and cardiovascular disease.  The body is loaded with inflammation. Due to inflammation and malnutrition, the blood is not flowing properly. Most people who are sick with Heart Disease, Diabetes, Cancer, Arthritis and other inflammatory diseases rely on medications, medical doctors and specialists to keep them alive with the “proper” medications. These are the same people who suffer from Erectile Dysfunction and other nutritionally deficient diseases. They have no energy and a lost of excitement for life! Many people become anxious, frustrated and angry. They (both men and women) have simply lost their desire for intimacy by the age of 50.


Do you suffer from any of these maladies:


  • Sleep apnea
  • Joint pain
  • Arthritis
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Mood swings
  • Lethargy
  • Muscle pain
  • Impotency
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Diabetes
  • Hot flashes
  • Heart disease?


Too much belly fat can affect your energy, mood, self confidence, sleep, blood sugar and can be a sign of something much worse. It can kill your health and take many years off your life.

There is only one disease …  the disease of Toxicity. [The China Study, by Drs. Campbell and Campbell]. 


Personally, after working with thousands of people with addictions for over 25+ years, I know this to be true.  I have witnessed each person detox, change their behavior patterns and food choices to heal their bodies.


If we want to feel better and prevent or reverse disease, we have to avoid the processed foods.  These foods are causing depression, anxiety, anger, aggressiveness, lethargy, "brain fog," pain, illness, and eventually the “Popular Big Three” of diabetes, cancer, and heart disease.


Scientific researchers identify a new viral strand for a disease daily and create a new name for this disease. Big Pharma invents a new drug to treat this new disease.


Americans are killing themselves by relying on pharmaceutical drugs to keep them alive. Look around: You can see it. A shot, a pill, a drug, a chemical is not going to cure a disease; not even obesity.


One must detox the body to remain disease free. By choosing foods that are safe and pure, we can nourish the body, build the immune system, and create an environment of alkalinity to protect the body against disease.

Do you have a hereditary risk (best known as “tendency”) for any of the following health issues? 


  • Heart Disease
  • Diabetes
  • High Cholesterol
  • High Blood Pressure
  • Obesity

Weight loss is a side benefit of detoxing the body and eating foods that are energizing, rather than “poisonous.” Many people “inherit” their parents' illnesses by “inheriting” their parents' diet. Over a period of decades this repeated diet causes repeated illnesses and diseases.


You do NOT have to “inherit” your relatives’ disease!


We believe in a diet rich in plant foods, pure and unadulterated. By consuming these foods, millions of people have reversed many illnesses, even with diagnoses and predictions of termination of life.


Diseases such as obesity, heart disease, diabetes,  and many blood and food-related illnesses have been reversed or annihilated by changing to a pure diet.

As we start the detox process, we teach you how to detox your body on a daily basis. Your cholesterol, triglyceride, blood pressure and weight numbers begin decreasing, immediately. Anywhere from 3 weeks to 2 months, your medical doctor will begin paying attention to your new lifestyle changes and suggest that you may begin decreasing certain medications. 


Most patients remark after the first week, “This was really easy. I didn’t feel hungry, deprived, or irritable. The program is so natural that I don’t feel like I have to sacrifice anything”.

In Europe, where Genetically Modified (GMO) foods are illegal, patients dealing with maladies such as high blood pressure, cholesterol, diabetes and other food-related illnesses are given a one-month prescription and are told, “Go home and get your numbers back in control with diet and exercise!”  They are encouraged to change the lifestyle issue that is causing the problem.  


In America, many people are placed on medications and told, “You will be on these medications for the rest of your life!” Diet, nutrition and exercise are rarely mentioned. Medical professionals prescribe the drugs to patients to prevent strokes, heart attacks and death. Medical professionals know that most people are not willing to make the necessary dietary changes to reverse their illnesses. When your medical professional puts you on these drugs, she or he is saving your life. However, by putting you on these drugs long term, they are giving you less incentive to actually correct the habits that caused the issues in the first place.


Obesity, diabetes, cancer, chronic fatigue, depression, anxiety, etc. are on the rise in America. Many people are becoming disabled and are experiencing early death from these illnesses.

We teach you how to eat foods that are healing and boost the metabolism, naturally. Your body feels satisfied and you will not feel like you are sacrificing or starving yourself. You feel content as your pounds fall off, naturally. There is no need to yo-yo when the body feels satisfied. 


Comments we receive from our current and former clients are encouraging: “My weight is changing and a lot of my former health problems are disappearing.” The patient usually sees a significant difference in their weight, body functions and energy level in just a few days.

Clients quickly notice problems with ailments such as: 


  • Indigestion
  • Acid reflux
  • Irritable bowel syndrome
  • Diverticulitis
  • Diarrhea
  • Constipation
  • Arrhythmia
  • Body aches
  • Headaches
  • Impotency and erectile dysfunction, disappearing!


Many clients notice diseases such as:


  • Chronic fatigue syndrome
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Diabetes
  • Migraines
  • Chronic arthritis
  • Many other health problems, disappear or remarkably improve.

Are you interested in a diet that can boost your immune system, prevent cancer, reverse heart and many other food related diseases? 


Many of the food related illnesses are sugar related … or related to foods that easily and quickly convert to sugar.  The body becomes addicted to these processed foods and begins shutting down after a few decades.  The person feels weak and sickly, asks their medical professional for medications and over time, becomes heavily dependent on large doses of medications.


In America, many children choose their own foods at an early age. A poor diet causes irritability, anxiety, lethargy, obesity, depression, trouble with concentration and a feeling of lack of purpose.  A few blood-related illnesses resulting from poor lifetime eating habits are:


  • Obesity 
  • Diabetes
  • High Blood Pressure
  • High Cholesterol
  • Strokes
  • Lupus
  • Heart Attacks 
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
  • Hypoglycemia
  • Hypothyroidism
  • and many more…

The quick, easy (“band-aid”) answer is medication … it becomes a substitute for proper nutrition … outcome: the addiction.


Our electrical stimulation treatment blocks the cravings for sugar and other drugs, resets your appetite control signal, helps the body detox faster, thus, increases the body’s metabolism.


We will teach you how to choose foods and control portions to help you lose the weight faster to help you reach your goals. Within 1 to 3 days, you will begin to lose weight and feel the energy from your new way of eating. Before 3 weeks, your blood composition begins to change.


We will customize the program to fit your needs. It is your program, designed to support you for the rest of your life to achieve a healthy, happy, disease-free life!

When a person stops the drug nicotine, the body becomes so relaxed that the metabolism slows down. At this point, if the person has poor eating patterns or habits, this is the formula for rapid weight gain to the “tune” of 20, 30, 50+ pounds! 


During our smoking cessation program, we give you tools to prevent weight gain. Often clients lose 3 to 6 pounds during their first week of smoking cessation (if they are already overweight).

Gastric bypass surgery has become very popular. Some people do very well with this surgery; some, not so well.

What makes the difference? Some people change their diets; others do not. Losing weight is a lifestyle change. A poor diet lacking in nutrition will cause weight gain in any person, even those with gastric bypass surgery. 


With the weight-loss surgery, many patients put the weight back on after one year! These unfortunate souls are usually the patients who did not change their food choices or eating patterns. Instead of eating the pure foods, the patient is now eating less of the bad foods. Anyone who is morbidly obese would initially lose weight eating very small portions of food, good or bad.


Diet pills, amphetamines, diet drugs such as Adderall are not safe for consumption. Starving one’s self to be skinny is extremely hard for the heart and other organs and can lead to sudden death.

You can actually feel ages younger than you are! 


With our programs, most changes begin during the first week. It takes two weeks to see and notice the larger changes. The first recognizable change is an increased amount of energy!


Did you know that most aches, pains, illnesses can be avoided by changing the diet?  We have witnessed this healing process many times over the past two decades. We can help you lose your aches and many illnesses in an alternative way … i.e.,  without the use of drugs.


We offer you treatments and teach you how to avoid your pain and illnesses in a natural way.


Learn how to easily take responsibility for your own health and wellness. Feel good with more energy and enjoy a real excitement for life!

Here’s what our clients have to say…

Sarah Troxler

I had very persistent and troubling heart palpations. I even visited the top cardiologist in my city, and he could not diagnose my symptoms. Two weeks into practicing Leslie’s eating protocol, the palpations lessened. Within one month, they disappeared entirely. The peace this has given me is invaluable.

Michelle Gurkin

Just completed five weeks with Leslie at The Stop Clinic. I was living overweight and malnourished, resulting in a sluggish lifestyle. After seeing Leslie, following her plan and receiving her treatments my energy skyrocketed! I began losing weight and feeling great after our first appointment.

Kaye Duncan

Prior to my first treatment, my hands would throb, making it difficult for me to go to sleep. The pressure points on my body hurt so badly, when I turned over, the pain would wake me up ! The night of my first treatment, I slept soundly through the night with no pain. When I woke up the next day, I could jump for JOY!

Glen Gullie

Leslie taught me how to make better food choices that energize me and give me strength, as well. I feel a sense of ownership and pride at the foods I am preparing in the kitchen. Prior to my program, I never made anything to eat and never tasted spinach or pineapple! (I love some of Leslie’s recipes!)
