Jens-Christian Holm is an inspiring, energetic and eye-opening lecturer with a great knowledge in regards to children, nutrition, well-being and upbringing. Jens-Christian Holm has instituted a childhood obesity treatment clinic which in the recent years has demonstrated some of the best treatment results in the world and which at the moment is spreading to other departments of Pediatrics and municipalities all across Denmark.
The treatment model is based on the understanding and recognition of obesity as a chronic disease, on the understanding of obesity as being regulated by an extremely effective hormone system that seeks to maintain the fat mass of the body, and on a fundamentally new health pedagogy. In 2014, 8 municipalities showed that their clinics reported weight reductions in 80% of obese children while Department of Pediatrics in Hillerød in 2015 showed that 75 % of their obese patients reduced their degree of obesity which shows that the health pedagogy is working. Jens-Christian Holm is frequently quoted in the media and has appeared in several television programs (for instance “Generation XL” on DR1 and “Fedt, Fup og Flæskesteg” on DR2).
