Dr Eva Orsmond is probably best known for her role as RTE’s hugely popular Operation Transformation diet and nutrition expert. Her battle to re-educate people on health and fitness is changing hundreds of people’s lives every day.
The Orsmond Clinics, run by Dr Orsmond, is a private specialist service offering a medically supervised professional approach to the treatment of overweight and obesity, and one of the few clinics that also offers weight loss programmes for children and patients with diabetes. “Obesity is still not too often not treated as a disease in medical practice, but rather its symptoms, eg, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, type 2 diabetes,” she said. “In reality numerous medical conditions can be cured through lifestyle change, of which weight reduction and a balanced healthy diet form a fundamental part.”
There are currently six clinics located throughout the country with plans to open in Gorey, Co Wexford, and Limerick in 2011.
Dr Orsmond believes that with the right support, education, and motivation, anyone can achieve weight loss and live a healthier life.
Orsmond Clinics are located in Athlone, Baggot Street and Loughlinstown in Dublin, Oranmore in Galway, Newbridge, and Portlaoise.
