How to Safely Lose Weight with Medical Weight Management
Weight gain tends to occur naturally as we age. Changes in lifestyle, diet, and exercise can quickly influence one’s ability to burn excess fat. While there are countless programs claiming to help people lose weight, not all of them are safe for everyone. Our bodies are unique, and there is no one-size-fits all solution to weight management. It takes a personalized approach to see long-lasting improvements in one’s overall health and wellbeing. We employ customized medical weight management solutions specifically tailored to each patient’s distinct goals and body composition.
What Is Medical Weight Management?
Chronic diseases are the leading cause of death and disability in the United States. Fortunately, many chronic conditions, such as obesity, are preventable through various lifestyle changes. The problem with most weight loss programs is that they don’t consider people as individuals. It’s well-known that each of us is predisposed to different degrees of fat, hormones, and genetic conditions. Medical weight management accounts for these individual differences and provides a clinically proven method for achieving positive results. This approach treats a patient as a whole instead of merely a collection of disparate symptoms. Oftentimes, root causes of disease can be resolved through the balance and regulation of internal healing mechanisms.
Our Weight Loss Process
We know most internal systems, including metabolism, are regulated by hormones. These chemical messengers coordinate many different functions within the body. Therefore, we first aim to gain an understanding of which factors currently influence one’s body weight. This requires a baseline reading of the hormones responsible for stress, appetite, and weight gain. These include cortisol, estrogens, progesterone, and testosterone. With this baseline established, we help our patients adopt a lifestyle that reflects this new, holistic understanding.
Our goal is to support our patients as they work towards improving their habits and body composition. With a patient’s goals and baseline analysis, we customize their strategy alongside our health coach, therapists, and medical physician. We’ll determine which supplements are recommended to resolve any underlying hormone imbalances. Then, we’ll suggest changes in diet and exercise according to our wellness coaches’ advice. This intentional approach to weight loss ensures patients are truly treated as individuals. It combines therapies designed to promote balance, improve nutrition, and reduce chronic stress.
Chronic stress is associated with weight gain in both men and women. By reducing stress and their reactions to it, like emotional eating, our patients tend to see dramatic results. We offer various natural treatments ranging from acupuncture and medical massage to movement and IV therapies. These therapies work together to minimize stress, improve blood flow, and develop flexibility. While many traditional programs are merely short-term solutions, our treatments promote long-term weight loss and health management.
We always prioritize our patients’ education and respect their autonomy. They’re encouraged to take part in selecting treatments which best fit their needs and goals. If a patient doesn’t understand any part of our process, then we gladly walk them through our reasoning. They can rest assured knowing they’re being guided by evidence-based research and licensed medical professionals.
