Lose Weight

How is it that many of us end up weighing a lot more than we ever intended to?  Dr. Harpe believes that we tend to lose our Intrinsic Power over our weight and health because we are heavily influenced by the Food and Medical Industries.  His experience has shown that:

  • Manufactured foods are addictive and therefore we consume more food than we need to and consume the unhealthiest foods.
  • Manufactured foods are cheap, abundant and the advertisements for them are effective at increasing consumption. This has resulted in an epidemic of obesity.
  • The medical industry leads us to believe that optimal health is complex and intricately related to disease management. A natural, lean body mass is all but forgotten.
  • Boutique hormone clinics (some promoting bio-identical hormones) make people believe that they lack expensive hormone therapies and this is why they cannot reach a desired weight.

A Doctor that Understands-

As an internal medicine doctor, Dr. Harpe is on the front lines of the obesity epidemic and wants to reduce the pain and suffering he sees in his patients on a daily basis. He understands the struggles associated with obesity and knows how difficult it is to lose weight and to keep it off, for he struggled himself with weight gain in his middle age. He can identify with the addictive qualities of processed foods and with the traps and misconceptions that make it difficult to make truly healthy food choices.

You Have the Power to Lose Weight and Feel Great

Dr. Harpe and his specialized team will show you how to lose weight and keep it off with the Naturvore eating plan, which is tailored to you. Our clients learn to choose their weight through natural means. It is that simple.

There is no magic to weight management. Eating a balanced diet of whole, natural foods and performing the right amount of exercise is key. Very lucrative hormone therapy seems to be the newest fad in health and weight loss, but it makes the person dependent on a costly program–often not addressing real lifestyle change. Why not use the hormones you have most efficiently? Our clients have demonstrated great success through the Naturvore plan without fad diets or expensive hormones.

Coaching for Weight Loss and Optimal Health

We show you how to lose weight and keep it off with the Naturvore eating plan. You will feel great, optimize your health, reverse disease, increase vitality and function– all through a simple, balanced, natural, highly nutritious eating plan that is easy to implement and maintain for life. The Naturvore diet plan is low on the glycemic index to decrease insulin spikes and inflammation, high in nutrients and phytonutrients to heal your body and prevent disease, high in quality protein to maintain optimal tissues and muscle mass and is rich in beneficial fats such as those found in olive oil, nuts, seeds, coconuts and avocados.

Never Go Hungry

Our clients eat throughout the day, find they are rarely hungry, they feel better, have better mood, more energy, have more beautiful skin and hair, and the best part – the excess weight just comes off as a side effect. Our focus is on balanced meals of nutritious whole foods that you learn to create yourself.


Weight Loss Made Simple – No Need to Count Calories

There is no need for calorie counting, or points. And no need for risky, expensive hormone therapies or weight loss supplements. We deliver a lifelong method of eating for optimal health, not a fad diet or gimmick.

Sustaining a healthy weight (especially for those of us with food allergies or sensitivities) often requires understanding of which foods are best for your unique needs and learning new skills to incorporate them into your lifestyle. In a holistic fashion, we also address poor sleep habits, high stress, inactivity and prescription medications, which can all hinder weight loss.

Wellness Testimonials

  • “After 34 years in law enforcement I retired – partly due to developing chronic back pain. I was literally in constant pain, with limited mobility.

    For over 7 years my family doctor tried all the traditional medical approaches, but he could not provide relief. I went to a chiropractor, an acupuncturist, and various physical therapists and none of these therapies provided relief either. Desperate, I underwent a series of spinal injections (at the cost of $8,000.00) by an orthopedist and they also failed.

    Then a physical therapist directed me to Dr. Charles Harpe. He reviewed all my medical records and created an innovative program of neuro-muscular manipulations and soft tissue injections that treated the root cause of the pain and inflammation – not just the symptoms. After two months I have diminished pain, greatly increased mobility and am now able get back in the gym three days a week. I highly recommend Dr Harpe because he was able to focus on the cause of my pain and then relieve my pain when other people couldn’t.”

  • I met Dr Harpe in June of 2014 when he became my new primary care doctor. At this point in my life my health was going into a real downward spiral. I could only walk short distances without being winded. I had back and joint pain so severe I had taken to walking with a cane. Also had arthritis, acid reflux, diverticulitis, heart arrhythmia, borderline high blood pressure, migraine headaches and an autoimmune disorder called Relapsing Polychondritis, which attacks cartilage and connective tissues. Also, I was extremely overweight for not just my height, but for just about any height!

  • In October 2013 I began seeing Dr. Harpe because my previous physician retired. At my first appointment,  Dr. Harpe  asked for the reason I was in his office,  I replied that my previous doctor required me to be checked every 6 months for various health problems—high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, gout, cholesterol and some other problems I can’t even recall. At the time I was 68 years of age, 5’9” tall and almost 290 lbs.  Dr. Harpe said I needed to do something about the reason I was in such poor shape, so that I would not have to continue many of the 10 different medications I was taking. Dr. Harpe asked me to read his book, “ Naturvore Power” and come back to see him in one week.

  • In July 2013 I began as a patient with Dr. Charles Harpe and his treatment and patience have changed my life.  I began his recommended Naturvore way of eating about Sept. 1, 2013. I am 70 years old, diabetic, and have been 40 plus pounds over weight for at least the past 10 years.  I have had problems with my weight all my life.  I developed the diabetes about 1993.  Dr. Harpe and his lovely wife Claudia gave me so much time, detailed instruction, and support.  As I began the Naturvore way of eating, along with regular exercise, my blood sugar improved enormously and, as Dr. Harpe had promised, the pounds dropped off.  I have never been so astonished in my life.
