 Pamela Brower, A.R.N.P.

Pamela Brower is a nurse practitioner and is a board-certified adult-gerontology primary care nurse practitioner. She received her undergraduate at Kaplan University and graduated summa cum laude. Her master’s degree in nursing was also from Kaplan University with concentration in adult-gerontology. She has over 20 years of orthopaedic experience through the follow-up care of post-surgical patients after hip, knee, and back surgery at rehabilitation and skilled nursing facilities. She has also managed and treated patients with amputations, orthopaedic injuries, and functional decline in the home care setting.

"For me, being an adult-gerontology primary care nurse practitioner for over 20 years has shown me how much diet and nutrition go hand and hand with a patient's long term health and the development of medical conditions as people age. I work with our patients to ensure they are obtaining their best weight loss results by following the easy 3-Step program to lower medication dosages and, for some, get off medications completely. It truly is a rewarding experience to see so many patients living healthier lifestyles, achieving their goals each day, and able to stop taking certain prescriptions." - Pamela Brower, A.P.R.N

Our ITG Diet Collaborations

Inbody270 Body AnalysisBody Composition is a method of breaking down the body into its core components: fat, protein, minerals, and body water. It describes your weight more accurately and provides a better glimpse into your overall health than traditional methods. Body composition analysis can accurately show changes in fat mass, muscle mass, and body fat percentage.

InBody devices use direct segmental measurement bioelectrical impedance analysis (DSM-BIA) to precisely measure body composition by sending multiple electrical currents through the body, resulting in up to six different impedance readings for the trunk and each of the four limbs.

Heath Trac Mobile Food Tracking- This FREE Health Trac App is a fast and secure way to track your daily foods and drinks consumed to better stay on track with the program!

Walden Farms Condiment's & SaucesWalden Farms kitchens developed the world’s only comprehensive assortment of calorie free products in the first place - with zero calories, fat, net carbs, gluten or sugars of any kind! Their condiments, salad dressings and syrups are a tasty addition to the ITG Diet Plan. 

The Inner Diet - A Psychological Approach To DietingThe Questionnaire focuses on your attitudes, feelings, and thoughts about a variety of topics related to dieting, weight control, and emotional eating. There are no right or wrong answers, only a personal and honest assessment of your feelings and opinions. Your responses to the questionnaire will identify how you score on the six Inner Diet issues.
