About the Author
Dr. Amber French grew up on a farm in northern Illinois. She attended undergrad at Augustana College in Rock Island, Illinois, and medical school at the Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine in Kirksville, Missouri. After graduating from medical school, she moved to suburban Philadelphia where she did her residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology. She moved to Dahlonega, Georgia, in 2004 and began private practice as an OB/GYN. In 2013, Dr. French became part of NGPG Lakeside OB/GYN and now practices gynecology only in her Dahlonega and Dawsonville locations.
It was at a conference on antiaging and regenerative medicine that she first became interested in nutrition and weight loss. After developing a program for herself, she formalized the information and began helping her patients achieve lasting weight loss in a manner that was healthy and beneficial to their bodies. She completed the fellowship and board certification in antiaging and regenerative medicine in 2010 and was looking for another project to take up all her spare time when friend and fellow food enthusiast Kari Morris approached her about writing a book together. Over 250 research articles and a year later, the book was finished.
She integrates antiaging principles into her general gynecology practice with an emphasis on bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, nutrition, and natural therapies. When she is not seeing patients in the office, doing surgery, researching, or writing, she enjoys traveling with her husband Kevin.
Amber is a regular contributor, along with co-author Kari Morris, to the Dig In! column in I Dig Dahlonega.
Dr. French recently authored an article for Wellness Times called “Diet Drugs: Long-Term Risks for Short-Term Weight Loss.”
