Dr. Franchell Hamilton


A Path Can Be Changed By Just One Person. And It Might Not Even Be Someone You Know.

Dr. Franchell Hamilton’s years of education started at the University of Houston Honors College, where she received her bachelor’s degree in Psychology and Chemistry, summa cum laude. She further pursued her education in Lyon, France, where she completed graduate studies in biochemical engineering. It was not until the chance encounter with an orthopedic surgeon that Dr. Hamilton’s future began to take shape. Upon hearing that Dr. Hamilton was unsure of what to do with her future, he encouraged her to pursue a career in medicine.

In just this brief interaction with a stranger, a new path was formed. The impact of his words inspired Dr. Hamilton to also change the lives of those she meets through practicing medicine, and eventually, consulting. And so, she continued her education at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio to earn her doctorate in medicine. She then attended Eastern Virginia Medical School to complete her residency, and ultimately her fellowship at the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston. The bariatric surgeon she was studying under demonstrated the large impact weight loss alone can have on a person’s health. This realization led her to refine the scope of her medical career by focusing on weight loss and wellness. After completing her bariatric fellowship in 2013, Dr. Hamilton did that just. She founded A Better Weigh Center – a place for her patients to receive treatments ranging from bariatric surgery and medical weight loss to hormone therapy.

The 4 Pillars of Transformation

As her practice grew, she began seeing more and more patients, often with the same recurring issue – maintaining their weight loss. Dr. Hamilton was not in the business of short-term fixes. She wanted to provide results with longevity. And so, she took a step back to look at the facts presented. Her procedures worked. The patients were excited about the results and were willing to do the work. But what gets in the way of their continued success? Addiction, depression, environments, perhaps just staying full with junk food, friends with unrealistic expectations. Though the list went on, she still was able to narrow it down to four key areas that directly affect patients’ success. These four areas, the 4 Pillars, amounted to the mental, environmental, behavioral, and medical state of a patient. In addressing these key areas, Dr. Hamilton was able to better provide a treatment plan for each patient that not only addresses their disease but also the root cause and methods to prevent it from recurring. She reinforced her new treatment methodology with countless hours spent researching and having difficult conversations with each patient until the method was perfected. Soon, she saw lasting results in her patients, eventually reaching thousands of lives changed.

Her success eventually led her to pull back the veil on Western medicine and its over-generalized practice of prescribing medication for the symptom rather than treating the root cause. With over half of the nation’s population belonging to an unhealthy weight category, Dr. Hamilton felt conviction in her heart to spread her new treatment method so that patients not just in her community, but also in the communities of fellow healthcare providers, could benefit from lasting results and remove themselves from this morbid statistic. Thus, the 4 Pillars of Transformation was founded – Dr. Hamilton’s weight loss and wellness system reaches communities where they are. In this program, she provides healthcare providers with a ready-made program that can be easily implemented in their own practice so that their patients can also reap the benefits from Dr. Hamilton’s years of research and experience. A day-long course, one on one consultations, group sessions, and more all come together so that providers nationwide can team up to fight the issue of our worsening health epidemics, including obesity that plagues our country.

Public Speaking

If you were to visit the office of your doctor, you expect to be received with the utmost care, attention, and patience by the professional tasked with improving your condition. Instead, many Americans are met with rushed consultations where the discussion only scratches the surface of the issue. Prescriptions are filled. Symptoms are managed. And the patient continues about their way without really improving. Dr. Hamilton helps alleviate this issue by speaking at public events on ways that patients can get the most out of appointments with their doctors, even under time constraints. 

Through her teachings from the Zig Ziglar foundation, she along with 26 other inspired individuals were taught how to properly construct their philosophies for effective reach and transformation for their audience. Their motto: “you can have everything in life you want if you will just help enough other people get what they want.” Seeing a clear alignment in her mission to radically change the face of healthcare in this country and the Ziglar Legacy motto, she completed the certification course so that she could develop the clearest, most compelling message possible. This group of motivated individuals pushed Dr. Hamilton to the far reaches of her abilities for the optimal benefit of her audience.

She also has talks on motivation, health and wellness. If you or your organization are looking to learn more about achieving your health and wellness goals, book a speaking engagement with Dr. Hamilton.

Your Life Transformed Podcast

As Dr. Hamilton continued to implement the 4 Pillars into her practice, she soon realized that such a treatment would benefit from more time spent in discussion with each patient. But with conflicting patient-provider schedules, coverage battles with insurance companies, and personal barriers that prevent honest conversations from taking place, Dr. Hamilton recognized the need for a platform where she could discuss such issues at length. Never one to settle, Dr. Hamilton created a new podcast to do just that. In Your Life Transformed: The Journey to Becoming a Better You, Dr. Hamilton speaks about the issues that matter most to patients. Through this new platform, she is given the opportunity to extend her in-office discussions to commutes home, during dinner prep, and so on. That pivotal time allows Dr. Hamilton to reinforce the work done in her practice and ensure that it is here to stay. It is through these honest conversations on her podcast that her patients receive supplementary material to continue down the path of lasting results for the life they desire. And Dr. Hamilton walks the path with them. From topics like sugar cravings to addiction, abuse, and self-care, Dr. Hamilton takes us on the journey to living our best life. A life not defined by exorbitance, but enjoyable to its fullest extent because patients are no longer plagued by exhaustion or health conditions that prevent them from creating experiences they never want to forget.

Begin your journey and tune into Your Life Transformed: The Journey to Becoming a Better You, wherever you listen to podcasts.

It is through her 4 Pillars of Transformation, Ziglar Legacy speaking events, private practice, podcast, and books that Dr. Hamilton provides us with the tools necessary to emerge educated, enlightened, and transformed.
