Join Dr. Matzner On a 30-Day Journey!

How many doctors do you know that practice what they preach when it comes to their own health and well being? I brought Ideal Protein/JumpStart to our community in 2010 because I 100% support the science behind the Ideal Protein/JumpStart technology.

"I want you to join me as I restart phase 1 to lose the weight, keep it off, and improve my own health."
       -Dr. Matzner
If you (like Dr. M) have taken weight off, but have difficulty keeping it off, please call our office now (217-359-6625).
A multi-year study at Aspiris Healthcare revealed that an astonishing 70% of participants who lost weight using the newly released Ideal Protein stabilization program maintained their weight within 4 pounds of their goal THREE YEARS after they completed phase 1!

Yoga as a Stress Reliever


Yoga has been known for centuries to be an effective method for reducing levels of stress hormones. New research led by Dr. Alan Kristal has found that regular yoga practice may have additional benefits, including the prevention of weight gain in people of normal weight range and weight loss in those who are overweight. The study, published in the Journal of the American Dietetic Association, found that people who ate mindfully, meaning that that were aware of what they ate and stopped eating according to their hunger cues, weighed less. Most importantly, this "mindful eating" approach was found to be strongly associated with yoga.

The theory is that the practice of yoga increases one's awareness of the body and one's sensitivity to hunger and satiety. This is not so much related to the act of physical exercise, but to the increase in awareness that comes from focusing on the breath and the calm of the body during yoga participation. The research used measures of comparison for analyzing mindful eating, including disinhibition (eating even when full), awareness, external hunger cues (such as smell and sight), emotional response, and distraction eating. Results indicated that higher amounts of mindfulness were linked to significantly lower BMI's and also that regular yoga participants had significantly increased mindfulness which allowed them to gain less over a ten-year period than non-yoga participants, regardless of dietary patterns and activity.

Dr Matzner Jump Start Director

For the past 35 years, I have had the honor, privilege, and pleasure to serve the Champaign-Urbana community with multiple services including chiropractic, acupuncture, nutritional support, stress reduction, and a scientifically based FDA labeled weight loss program ~ Ideal Protein/Jumpstart Weight Loss. I want to thank you for your many years of trust. I truly am grateful beyond words!

My calling has always been to provide a wellness journey. I love what I do and to this day it’s still my calling. Unfortunately, the wear and tear of treating literally thousands of patients has caused irreversible damage to my left hand and wrist. As a result, I will now be focusing my wellness efforts on weight loss, maintaining weight loss, improving the quality of life, and community wellness outreach. Clearly, I am not retiring!

 I will be available in the unlikely event that any questions arise.
