Weight Loss Programs

Self-Guided
A 30-day program to help teach you healthy eating habits and guide you to gradual and steady weight loss. This type of change is more successful than quick weight loss programs that often result in gaining the weight back. This program encourages eating REAL food as opposed to processed and artificial foods often associated with other weight loss programs. This program is supported with natural and safe supplements to help curb appetite and support liver and digestive function.

Physician-Guided
The length of this program depends on your individual goals. The basic introductory phase consists of five weeks. You will begin with a consultation to go over goals and answer questions. If the program is determined to be a good fit for you, you will schedule your next appointment to have your blood drawn, take measurements, re-assess goals and review the program. Week 1 consists of reviewing the bloodwork and discussing any risk factors, taking measurements and answering questions. Weeks 3-5 will continue with measurements, answer questions and troubleshoot any problems. Follow up blood work is then done between 6 and 12 months to evaluate changes. For some, this is enough. For others who like the accountability, want to lose more weight or are having difficulties with plateauing, may want to continue with a maintenance program. These are set up for 4 weeks at a time.

Weight loss/wellness services can be purchased in “a la carte” format as well. To find out what’s best for you, call our office to schedule your free initial consultation.

Lab Testing 

Patients frequently ask what supplements he or she should be taking.  Although we can make suggestions, knowing exactly what your body needs is ideal.  We strongly recommend micronutrient testing.  You can read in detail what micronutrient testing is on the lab testing page, but, overall, it gives the doctor an excellent picture of what's going on inside your body.  With that knowledge, she can recommend the right supplementation regiment for you.  This often cuts back the amount of supplements the patient is taking and in turn, saves the patient money.

 

Supplementation

When a patient isn't ready for micronutrient testing, the product that we recommend is Juice Plus+.  What is Juice Plus+?

It is the next best thing to fruits and vegetables.  Juice Plus+ is whole food based nutrition, including juice powder concentrates from 30 different fruits, vegetables and grains. Juice Plus+ helps bridge the gap between what you should eat and what you do eat every day. Not a multivitamin, medicine, treatment or cure for any disease, Juice Plus+ is made from quality ingredients carefully monitored from farm to capsule to provide natural nutrients your body needs to be at its best.

Clinical research has showcased the benefits of adding Juice Plus+ to your diet. More than 30 Juice Plus+ research studies have been conducted in leading hospitals and universities around the world. The clinical research published in peer-reviewed scientific journals show that Juice Plus helps support heart health, a healthier immune system, and more.

We want the best fuel for our bodies and fruits and vegetables are recommended choices. But when papaya, kale, or elderberries don’t make it onto the plate, the next best thing to fruits and vegetables is Juice Plus+.
