Medical Weight Loss
A well-designed individualized medical weight loss program goes far beyond dieting and exercise. A comprehensive medical approach is used to incorporate fat reduction strategies that fit your specific needs. Our successful medically supervised weight loss program typically includes:
- Customized reduction plan
- Nutrition planning
- Body detoxification
- Dietary supplementation
- Vitamin and mineral supplementation
- Hormone replacement
- Healthy exercise
- Trained medical supervision
A healthy diet rich in vitamins and minerals is the best way to nourish your body.
There are instances though, when the body has trouble absorbing these nutrients through natural digestive processes. Conditions such as stress, a medical illness, food intolerances, and prescription medication can inhibit the absorption of important substances such as calcium, magnesium, zinc, selenium, vitamins B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B12, C, folic acid, glutathione, and biotin.
In these cases, intravenous administration of nutrients directly into the bloodstream may be the best option to ensure that your body is getting what it needs. This is the goal of IV nutritional therapy.
Hormone Replacement Therapy
Aging can be a scary prospect. In addition to the general stress and pains of growing old, we go through a number of physical and mental changes. For women, menopause is a major concern while men deal with andropause and low testosterone (Low T).
Many age-related issues are the result of hormonal imbalance. Your body has a complex collection of glands called the endocrine system. Each of these glands generates crucial hormones, such as testosterone, estrogen and progesterone. Excessive or reduced levels of these hormones can wreak havoc on your system.
Is Nutritional Counseling Right for You?
It's often overlooked, but food plays a major role in your hormone health. Making the correct choices of what to eat can improve your overall physical and mental fitness, and can even help mitigate certain hormone related conditions.
What is Nutraceutical Therapy?
Derived from the words "nutrition" and "pharmaceutical," nutraceuticals are believed to aid in the treatment of a variety of illnesses, including addiction and other chronic diseases. Nutraceutical therapy is typically used in conjunction with other forms of therapy to put the body in the best position to heal itself.
Nutraceuticals are foods or products derived from food that have health benefits. There are a wide variety of products that can fall under the term nutraceutical. The following are some examples:
- Amino acids
- Isolated nutrients such as lycopene and beta-carotene
- Dietary supplements such as the B complex vitamins
These products may come in liquid, pill, powder or capsule form. In nutraceutical therapy, a specialist creates individualized treatment recommendations designed to prevent and treat specific health conditions.
