MEDICALLY SUPERVISED WEIGHT MANAGEMENT
The problem with dieting is that not every diet works for everyone. In order for a diet to be effective, it needs to be tailored to each individual. Our program has been a trusted facility for thousands of medical weight loss patients looking for proven and effective science-based weight loss. If you have been struggling to lose weight no matter how much or how little, our programs can help you to stop the rollercoaster of weight gain. A customized weight loss treatment plan will be designed for you based on your specific body and your individual goals.
Our medically supervised diet is specifically designed around each individual. Through a proprietary group of testing, we are able to determine what your specific problem is when it comes to weight. We feature genetic and hormonal testing, metabolic measurements, body composition assessment, proprietary fat burning injections, FDA-approved pharmacotherapy, food sensitivity testing and customized meal plans and to help optimize your outcomes and achieve your weight- and health-related goals.
As part of our team work, your progress on our program will be monitored and evaluated on an ongoing basis, consistently measuring your current state versus your goals. We provide easy access to your clinical team including your physician, registered dietitian and exercise physiologist. There will be close monitoring and fine-tuning of your nutrition program to ensure you are getting good results
BODY COMPOSITION ASSESSMENT
The body composition scale sends an imperceptible current through your body (bioelectrical impedance). These measurements tell you about your body fat, muscles, metabolism, bone structure and body water.
RESTING METABOLIC RATE
By measuring your resting metabolic rate or RMR, which is a unique number affected by our weight, age, body composition, hormone levels, and gender, we can get a more precise assessment of how much energy (or fuel) your body burns in a day.
FOOD SENSITIVITY TESTING
Sometimes certain foods can make you feel unwell, regardless if they’re healthy or not. They may trigger any number of food sensitivity symptoms, such as headaches, digestive issues, joint pain or skin problems. To help identify potentially problematic foods I offer food sensitivity tests.
HORMONAL & GENETIC TESTING
A comprehensive report detailing your genotype in seven areas and provides you with diet and exercise strategies that are tailored to your genotype.
Saliva testing is used for measuring hormones such as cortisol, estrogen and testosterone, and its non-invasive collection asks patients to spit into a plastic tube.
