Over 60% of adult Americans are considered overweight or obese, so it is not surprising to find that weight-loss is one of the most popular New Year’s resolutions. At the beginning of each new year many attempt to lose weight, but over time very few are successful. Our goal is to help you lose weight and teach you how to keep it off. Our programs work for everyone that follows them.There is no one size fits all medical weight loss program. We perform comprehensive individualized laboratory testing to create a customized plan that will help you lose weight and improve your overall health, wellness and well being. The initial phase of our weight-loss programs include supplements that aid in treating adrenal fatigue, gastrointestinal issues, and detoxification.
It is imperative to have proper digestion. Many of our patients have intestinal permeability (leaky gut), insufficient stomach acid, or digestive enzymes. This precludes proper digestion and assimilation of protein. The brain will then react by down regulating or decreasing the thyroid and adrenal function with the end result of decreased metabolism. This can lead to carbohydrate cravings and excessive weight gain. An over active appetite can be induced from nutritional deficiencies, high cortisol levels which can be induced by stress or chronic disease, and prescription drugs. The lack of pancreatic enzymes can also lead to weight gain.
We also will do the 23 and Me genetic testing that will help tailor a dietary plan for you. We will support your methylation cycle, detoxification pathways, neurotransmitter pathways and correct hormone imbalances and nutritional deficiencies. We will perform food sensitivity and GI testing to determine the best dietary regime, along with advocating proper exercise routines.
Our weight loss program includes:
- Lipotropic injections– lipotropic agents play in important role in the body’s use of fat. They help the body metabolize fatty acids from foods. Methionine inositol and choline have lipotropic properties and help maintain a healthy liver. These lipotropic compounds can accelerate the fat metabolism rate. As a result, the fatty acids are going to be degraded and utilized or excreted by the body as opposed to being stored as fat. Additional vitamins and minerals accelerate this process.
- Nutritional Supplements – The supplements are pharmaceutical grade and individualized based on specialized nutritional, genetic, and GI testing. These supplements will help increase energy, facilitate weight loss, assist in appetite suppression, and repair GI and cellular function.
- Weight Loss Coaching – Our staff is here to help you through your weight loss process. Our doctor and staff are available at all times to answer questions. Our goal is helping you to achieve yours.
