Dr. Fred and Nan Norman, Founders of Myrtle Beach Diet & Regenerative Rx


Dr. Norman opened his practice of Family Medicine in 1975 and was shocked to see the health implications of overweight and over-medicated patients. He and Nan began designing EXERCISE AND DIET PRESCRIPTIONS and thus was the beginning of MYRTLE BEACH DIET.

In 1999 they added the innovation of BIOIDENTICAL HORMONE TESTING AND TREATMENT to fulfill the positive effects of healthy weight loss. DR. NORMAN’S PERSONALIZED APPROACH TO EACH INDIVIDUAL continues to receive great support from the Myrtle Beach community as well as throughout the nation.
