About Us

Evercore were founded in 2016 by me and Sam Vandervalk.

I was frustrated with the current healthcare system and I wanted to implement a 21st century solution to an old problem that leads to depression, stress, and anxiety: lower back pain.

Lower back pain is the leading cause of disability in the world. 80% of adults get lower back pain, but the current healthcare system often masksthe problem instead of solving the root cause of the issue.

Here is the common story I hear: “I went to see the doctor, the doctor gave me pain medications, and I was sent home without a clear solution to my back pain.” Not exactly what they were looking for after waiting weeks for their appointmentand taking valuable time off work.

Their pain is masked with pain medications and a temporary Band-Aid is slapped over the real issue. Their lower back pain returns and they are left feeling frustrated, anxious and stressed. In addition, they were not empowered to reduce lower back pain on their own.

Hundreds of people feel empowered to reduce their lower back pain by following the approach I will teach you. Contrary to what most people believe, you can learn how to proactively reduce lower back pain on your own with the right knowledge and mindset.

Our mind-body, self-empowering approach will give you hope and the ability to get back to the things you love. You do not have to give up your favorite activities. We will teach you how to exercise around your pain to get strong, lean and lose weight.

Our medically-supervised weight loss program implements ketogenic and intermittent fasting protocols from the Dr. James Fung, the world’s leading authority on low-carb, ketogenic diets, and intermittent fasting.

Obesity, heart disease, diabetes and fatty liver are rising epidemics in the United States. Many people have a misconception that keteogenic diets are dangerous or damage the kidneys. Listen to Dr. James Fung on YouTube and you will find this information is based on lack of knowledge and poor implementation of ketogenic lifestyles.

Our program is supervised by Dr. Brian Lenzkes, a top-rated medical doctor in San Diego. Dr. Lenzkes triumphed over his own struggles with weight gain by following a ketogenic diet. A ketogenic diet is not for everyone; however, it will help most people. It also requires properly implementation because your insulin levels among other variables need to be monitored.

If you want to lose weight and get your health under control, now is your opportunity to see how a ketogenic lifestyle can help you get the body you want while enjoying delicious foods.

If you are ready to get strong, look good, and turn back your biological clock while avoiding injuries then start our weight-loss program today.

I believe in you. Now, believe in yourself.

To your health,

Dr. Marc

Hi, my name is Sam Vanderwalk. I own several successful businesses and I partnered with Dr. Marc because we are good friends and share a vision to help people get the most out of life.

I love to play hockey two days per week and I’ve dealt with numerous sports injuries throughout the years. Dr. Marc has given me valuable advice to stay active with the things I love.

I spend a couple of months each year traveling the world and meeting new people. During the winter months, I spend my time in San Diego. During the summer, I own and operate the top salmon fishing charter in Vancouver Island, Canada.

I am driven and motivated to become the best version of myself and overcome any negative self-beliefs that limit my personal growth. Through the years, I have learned that we all have the potential for greatness, but we need to proactively take action to see positive changes.
