Weight Management

Managing your weight can be a challenge that many of us are facing. The truth of the matter is, if it were as simple as diet and exercise, every one of us would get into a healthy body weight and stay there by now. Unfortunately, problems with abnormal weight gain and difficulties losing it are almost always rooted in human physiology. Mental and emotional well-being, physical activity, and dietary habits are important factors that should all be taken into consideration as well.

Current obsessive use of an expensive weight loss injectable medication as a single source of weight loss, prescribed blindly and uncontrollably, is not sufficient in addressing the complex issues associated with the weight loss. Use of any single medication has a short lived effect and is destined to result in weight return worse than it was, leaving people frustrated, unhappy and unhealthy.

Modern pharmacological breakthroughs in weight loss have a great value in skilled hands as a great adjunct therapy. Simultaneous correction of many other contributing factors assures that the weight not only comes off, but also stays off after the therapy has been completed.  When weight loss is addressed and treated as a complex state of health, the outcome would yield the reversal of unhealthy chronic and debilitating diseases.  The goal of successful weight therapy is to reverse risks of chronic diseases and maximize chances of achieving lasting good health.

The most important objective of weight loss therapy is to address and balance the endocrine (HORMONAL) system. Accurate testing to see what is happening in the body during a period of fasting and after eating a meal gives the most precise picture. Most commonly, there is insulin resistance and leptin resistance. Those hormones when elevated drive overeating, night time eating, sugar cravings that a person can not control. It does not matter how much cardio and weight training a person does, until those hormonal problems are addressed, weight will keep coming on.

Often there are several hormonal abnormalities happening all at the same time at different degrees: high leptin, high insulin, suboptimal function of the thyroid gland and or elevated or misfired stress hormones such as cortisol and prolactin, sex hormones when addressed simultaneously, deliver most beneficial and lasting results. 

Most common nutritional efficiency is in protein and vitamin D. Right behind are deficiencies in folate, vitamin B12 and iron. We also test trace minerals as they are important co-factors in all of this. Trace minerals are of a huge importance in proper carbohydrate metabolism and thyroid function.

We offer additional supplementation with powerful blends to assist in fighting food cravings, fatigue, anxiousness, low moods, helping the body to burn unwanted fat and build desirable muscle mass. 

At the Health and Beauty Integrative Center, we take the most physiological approach to weight management, helping patients improve their overall health through targeted weight management therapies. Common recommendations include improving protein intake, taking vitamins and or medications to address problem areas of energy production needs and efficient hormonal functioning.

We use the most safe and effective dosing of several pharmacological and nutraceutical  options. The goal is to achieve a sustainable weight loss process with no or minimal side effects, gain maximum beneficial effects, and keep the weight off for good.  

The human body is the most amazing self regulating and regenerating machinery when given a chance. Body’s adaptation abilities are seen with weight loss and change in body composition.  After staying at the target weight for about 12 months, all body systems adapt and re-calibrate to function properly  at the healthy weight and it becomes natural to maintain this healthy weight going forward. Normalizing body weight greatly affects the cardiovascular system, gastrointestinal system, function of the kidneys and the liver. It is realistic to greatly decrease the number and or dosages of medications that the person was on prior to losing the weight. Often there is no need for blood pressure, colesterol, diabetic medications, pain relievers etc. 

In fact, body weight has far-reaching effects on your health. Obesity is a major cause of inflammation and chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, autoimmune spectrum diseases, and even cancers. It is of paramount importance to keep healthy body weight to lower risks of developing debilitating diseases.

Being overweight can negatively impact your body over time, causing symptoms such as:

  • Chronic pain
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Insomnia
  • Joint and muscle tenderness
  • Edema
  • Bloating
  • Headaches

Fortunately, many of these symptoms can easily be reduced or eliminated through weight loss management, without the need for expensive surgeries. Losing as little as 5% of your total weight can be enough to promote unbelievable changes that can help treat these conditions.
