Meet Our Members: Danee Barnett Image Recovery Center

DaneeBarnettImageRecoveryGive us a brief history of your business/organization.

Danee Barnett Image Recovery Center is the brainchild of Dr. Danee Barnett, a licensed Doctor of Oriental Medicine and homeopathic practitioner. She is also 15-year cancer survivor and trained integrative oncology acupuncturist. Barnett developed a program which helps her patients lose weight while dramatically improving over-all health.

The protocol employs homeopathy to safely ‘rev’ up the body’s metabolism, electro-acupuncture treatments (no needles) proven to conquer food addictions and emotional eating and a custom amino acid compound to help change the body’s composition to burn fat while building and maintaining muscle.

Dr. Barnett’s patients typically lose about 10% of their body weight in a little over 30 days. Since launching the weight program in 2009, she has helped more then 3,000 patients, including MDs, nurses and pharmacists lose over 56,000 pounds. Men typically lose, on average 25-35 pounds, women 15-25 pounds. Metabolic testing and Lipotopic injections insure lasting weight loss, without the common yo-yo effect.

In addition, cholesterol, blood pressure, triglycerides, and blood sugar levels dramatically improve. In many cases, type 2 diabetes can actually be reversed and statin drugs are no longer necessary.

What are your business/organization’s core values, goals, and overall mission?

Our overall mission is to improve each patient’s physical and emotional well-being.

How long have you been in business in the Greater Sarasota Community?

The Danee Barnett Image Recovery Center opened 1998. Originally, most patients were seen to assist in the recovery of pain issues or integrative cancer care. The weight program evolved in 2009, after Dr. Barnett, testing her system, lost 16 pounds in one month while improving blood pressure, cholesterol, triglycerides. Her fat content dropped while lean body mass remained intact. She felt stronger and had more energy than she’d had in years. Her patients saw this dramatic, positive transformation and began to ask for help to do the same.

In a nutshell, what does your business/organization provide its customers/clients?

We provide our patients with personal, loving care and attention. Whether their goal is to lose weight and get off of prescription medications, or to learn a proper diet to help overcome cancer, each individual receives one-on-one, skillful and professional treatment and guidance. All office visits are with a physician, never a technician

Complete this sentence: “When a customer/client walks into my business/office, they can expect…”

…to feel that they are finally home.

What makes your business/organization unique?

There is no other weight loss program like this. Using food as medicine, Dr. Barnett has developed a system that is easy to follow and most find very affordable. With a success rate of over 90% each success story leads for two or three more! in addition to being a finalist in the Sarasota Chamber Small Business Awards, Danee Barnett Image Recovery Center has been voted Best Local Weight Loss Program for five years in a row by the Sarasota Herald Tribune Reader’s Choice Awards.

The atmosphere is our office is fun and uplifting with most patients looking forward to every office visit.

What benefit(s) attracted you to the The Greater Sarasota Chamber of Commerce?

I am excited to be a new member of the Chamber and look forward to helping other members get their mojo back! I am also looking forward to meeting and taking advantage of the services of other business owners in the community. I have already found a new credit card processing company through The Chamber.

Is your company/organization involved in any community/civic activities?

We currently donate 25 cents per pound lost on our weight loss program to The All Faiths Food Bank Sprout Truck, which is their fresh produce program. I know it doesn’t sound like a lot, but with over 56,000 pounds lost in the last 6 years, it will certainly add up! We also provide financial support both by attending fund-raising functions and donating goods and services to silent auctions of charitable organizations including the Sarasota County YMCA, Planned Parenthood and SPARCC.

Where do you see your organization in five years?

In 5 years, I would like to see my weight loss system used in clinics across the country. Obesity is the #1 health problem in America. It leads to diabetes, heart disease and even cancer. We are already beginning to receive calls from outside the state and even from other countries as a result of word-of-mouth.

If your business/organization were a book, song or famous artwork, what would it be and why?

The song that best represents my business is “I Feel Good!” by James Brown. Our patients feel younger than they have in years after completing our program and our maintenance programs keep that vitality going strong!
