Medical Weight Loss

Tired of crash diets and extreme exercise programs that don't deliver the results? There is hope in the realm of medical weight loss and a functional wellness approach! By taking a holistic approach that addresses underlying factors blocking your ability to lose weight, together we can break through your weight loss plateau and even improve overall well-being.

What Is Medical Weight Loss? 

Medical weight loss is a professional approach to weight loss that involves working with a healthcare provider to develop a personalized plan based on the individual's specific needs and health status.

Medical weight loss offers a unique and comprehensive approach to tackling weight-related issues.

Unlike fad diets or quick-fix solutions, medical weight loss focuses on scientific, evidence-based strategies personalized to individual needs.

With the guidance of healthcare professionals, patients receive a thorough evaluation, including an assessment of underlying factors that fad diets and "cookie-cutter" diet programs frequently miss – such as gut dysbiosis, food intolerances, hormonal imbalances, sleep issues and more.

This approach can also include medication assistance with GLP-1 agonists (such as semaglutide and tirzepatide) that can interact with various cellular receptors to promote weight loss.

They work by...

  • Suppressing your appetite and cravings
  • Improving your insulin sensitivity and blood sugar control
  • Help keep you feeling fuller longer

When added to a tailored plan that also integrates nutrition, exercise, behavior modification, you can enjoy the benefits of finally losing weight without surgical interventions.

How Do Semaglutide & Tirzepatide Work?

Semaglutide and tirzepatide are two prescription-only medications that can help with weight loss.

In clinical trials, semaglutide and tirzepatide have shown significant weight loss results. People lost an average of 15% and up to 22.5% of their body weight, respectively. For instance, someone weighing 250 pounds could potentially lose about 40-50 pounds with semaglutide or 50-60 pounds with tirzepatide.

They work by mimicking a hormone called GLP-1 (glucagon-like peptide-1) that our bodies naturally produce after eating:

They deal with cravings or overactive appetites by making your stomach empty food slower, which helps you feel fuller for longer. You know that feeling when you're satisfied after a good meal? That's what these medications aim to achieve.

They also help with insulin resistance, a condition where your body doesn't respond well to insulin. By reducing the liver's production of glucose, they lower blood sugar levels and make your body more sensitive to insulin. This helps in using glucose efficiently and burning more calories.

These medications offer an exciting option for individuals looking to manage their weight and improve their overall health. By taking advantage of the effects of semaglutide and tirzepatide, you can work towards your weight loss goals while addressing metabolic factors that contribute to your well-being.
