While traveling the world working these amazing athletes, Dr. McAlees started the Charlotte Health Center in 2010 to help patients looking to improve their health using a functional medicine approach. It quickly grew to become one of the most prominent health clinics in North America. Using the same principles and techniques developed during his time with the athletes, Dr. McAlees developed The Align Weight Loss and Body Balancing Program™ and has helped thousands of patients improve their health, live pain free, get off prescription medications while achieving a healthy weight.
Dr. McAlees works with patients all over the world to improve their quality of life by taking a fresh approach to healthcare. He does this by not just figuring out what is wrong but in his words, “far more importantly, WHY it is wrong. Only once you know why something isn’t working properly can you then fix it.” Dr. McAlees' approach does not include pharmaceuticals because he does not want to cover up the problem or kick the can down the road while it develops into a larger problem later. If you are ready to maximize your personal success and biological performance, Dr. McAlees and his team look forward to helping you reach your goals.
