Our PHC nutrition program is offered at most of our clinic locations and is managed by our Director of Clinical Nutrition Dr. Alex Eckert and his team.

Having seen so many diets that may cause a temporary weight loss, Dr. Eckert became inspired to create a program that causes a permanent health change. Most diets use a strategy that does not consider the individual, enforcing that they start from scratch and eliminate all “bad foods.” Instead, the PHC nutrition program starts by learning your dietary habits and works with you to develop a healthy lifestyle by implementing small changes that take place over the course of 6 months. Dr. Eckert believes the key to long term health is a series of subtle, effortless changes that sustain a benefit over one’s life and not just the season.

Dr. Eckert graduated Magna Cum Laude with a Doctorate in Chiropractic from the University of Bridgeport. In addition to taking academic courses in clinical nutrition, he is a certified Weight Management Specialist with training from the American Council on Exercise and has also dedicated many years to independently studying spanning from bodybuilding nutrition to dietary changes for medical conditions. It is this accumulation of knowledge that has allowed him to create a dietary program that is effective for any individual.
