Medically Supervised Weight Loss

Excess weight is a complex problem that affects many aspects of one’s health and quality of life. The causes of weight gain are multi-faceted and our customized weight loss programs are tailored to each individual’s needs.

A biochemical nutrition assessment is an in-depth evaluation of both objective and subjective data related to an individual’s food and nutrient intake, lifestyle and medical history. Functional nutritional testing identifies biochemical imbalances through laboratory analysis, and is useful when standard medical tests have not identified the underlying cause of a health issue.

Our non-surgical nutritional and medical weight loss clinic begins with a thorough initial medical and lifestyle consultation so that specific individualized plans can be developed and implemented. Programs include nutritional assessments and education; metabolic testing; behavioral analysis; a review of individual medical conditions that cause or affect weight and exercise/physical activity prescriptions.

Learn effective strategies to keep weight off using real food, improve eating behaviors, balance stress and incorporate exercise and activities.

Rapid Weight Loss HCG Diet: Lose up to 1 to 2 lbs. per day

Based on Dr. Simeons’ Protocol: “Pounds and Inches” (as seen on Dr Oz)

The HCG treatment consists of a very low calorie diet (VLCD) in combination with HCG hormone treatments. HCG helps to burn the “mobile fat” that is the fat that is stored around the hips, thighs, belly and upper arms. It will, however, leave the so-called “structural fat” untouched, which can be found in the muscles and protects the organs. This way the excess fat will disappear even faster and the problem areas will be dealt with more efficiently.

During the treatment, you will take a small amount of HCG daily. Be aware that the HCG itself does not cause weight loss; it modifies your eating behavior. We will give you the details of a low calorie, low fat and practically starch-free diet to obtain optimum results.

What is HCG and how does it work? Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG)is the “natural” hormone the body makes during pregnancy. HCG can “reset your metabolism” so you lose as much as a pound a day without feeling hungry or weak.

HCG Treatment Program Guidelines:

The duration of our program is 35- 70 days, and includes 1 weekly visit to the health care provider’s office.

Expected average weight loss for women during the plan is 15-20 pounds; men can expect to lose an average of 20-25 pounds for the same 30-day period. A six-week transitional phase should follow the 30-day program. Patients are encouraged to continue the good eating habits and lifestyle changes they have made during the 35 – 70 day plan.

The very nature of this diet provides for some quick and dramatic results. Early success – supported by monitoring and education – helps patients maintain their commitment and adherence to the program.

Check your schedule. Try to plan the diet to avoid vacations or other family events which strain your ability to follow the program.

We hope to have the privilege of helping you safely, naturally and effectively lose weight and gain optimal health.

Strawberry Laser Lipo Body Contouring

Strawberry Laser Lipo treatments can be added to any weight loss package

A revolution in non-invasive inch loss, the Strawberry laser lipo breaks down stored triglycerides into free fatty acids and glycerol, releasing them via the channels in the cell membranes. The process of fatty acid release is how the body uses the stored energy reserves, thus making the Strawberry treatment a natural process.

The Strawberry is a low-level laser that stimulates the adipocyte cells. In addition, this process will not harm surrounding structures, vessels, or nerves. The expelled fat and fluids are released into the interstitial space and transported to the body’s lymphatic system. It is highly recommended that physical exercise follow to ensure the disposal of the fat efficiently and preventing re-absorption. Proper nutrition and exercise will both enhance results and prolong them long-term. The Strawberry Laser does not destroy cells. The process shrinks cells, causing inch loss in a more natural, non-invasive approach.

Cold Laser Lipo: Freeze Your Fat Away

Cold laser lipo permanently destroys fat cells. Clinical studies have shown non-surgical cold laser (cryogenic) liposuction treatments to be effective on between 20% -40% of the fat cells in the treated area in just one session. Cold laser lipo, also known as cryo lipo, cools the fat in the treated area of your body, when cooled to a controlled temperature, the fat cells crystalize and die. It is heralded as an non-invasive alternative to liposuction and a futuristic body sculpting treatment that celebrities no longer can keep secret!

Personalized Diet Plans/Biochemical Nutritional Assessment

We will individualize your diet based on several factors, including your weight loss goal, your metabolic rate (your body’s ability to burn calories), your medical conditions, your biochemical nutritional assessment, as well as your dietary preferences. After your weight goal is achieved, we will convert you to a maintenance program to keep the weight off. If you desire to lose weight more rapidly, we can utilize a very low calorie diet program. We will ensure your safety by close monitoring of your health and providing proper nutrition during this period.

A blood micronutrient test provides an innovative assessment of a patient’s nutritional status. Vitamins, minerals, amino acids and antioxidants are all evaluated. By testing for vitamins, minerals and antioxidant levels, we are able to identify deficiencies and supplementation that can help in the management of chronic and immune diseases as well as provide valuable information for early detection and prevention for the proactive patient.

Overwhelming scientific evidence confirms that vitamin deficiencies are associated with disease processes and the overall condition of one’s health. Vitamin, mineral and antioxidant deficiencies have been shown to suppress immune function and contribute to chronic degenerative processes such as arthritis, cancer, Alzheimer’s, cardiovascular disease and diabetes.
