How Does Medical Weight Loss Work?
Our medical weight loss services start by helping patients identify the root cause of why weight gain has become a problem and then developing a customized program designed for you as an individual. We start with a comprehensive blood panel that helps identify specific markers that might be contributing to weight gain. This often can identify chronic disease in its earliest stages or hormone imbalances that may make it more difficult for you to lose weight. We combine personalized testing with nutritional counseling, weight loss therapies, that can help increase your energy and fuel your weight loss efforts so that you can achieve your goals.

How Do Hormones Help With Weight?
Hormones are responsible for delivering messages to the body to perform many functions including those responsible for managing your metabolism. As you age, the hormone levels decline or may become imbalanced. This can result in systemic inflammation, insulin resistance, and poor thyroid function. In turn, this can lead to a slowed metabolism, a decrease in energy, and weight gain. There are many hormones that can affect your weight including testosterone, estradiol, estrone, progesterone, cortisol, thyroid-stimulating hormones, HGH, and insulin. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) replenishes and rebalances these hormones allowing you to achieve your weight loss goals more easily.

What Peptides Are Used for Weight Loss?
There are a variety of peptides used for weight loss, but one of the most common is semaglutide. Semaglutide is a peptide that works by mimicking a hormone called glucagon-like peptide- (GLP-1) that helps to reduce appetite. Another peptide, BPC-157 can be added to help reduce inflammation which can further help with results. GLP-1 agonists help to control blood sugar, but they also help with weight. Semaglutide slows down how fast your stomach empties food and prevents the liver from releasing stored sugar. These actions help you feel fuller longer and lose weight.
What IV/Nutrients Are Used for Weight Loss?
Nutrient therapy can be combined with other methods to accelerate any weight loss program.
B12 and MIC injections can be added to help with energy and fat burning. Made from methylcobalamin, the most absorbable form of B12 and combined with MIC to help eliminate fat and toxins from the body, these injections can be administered 1-2 times per week to optimize energy and metabolism.
Glutathione is a super antioxidant and can be added to many of our popular IV treatments. Glutathione is produced by every cell in the human body and is important to countless cellular processes. It is responsible for fighting free radical damage, reducing inflammation, strengthening your immune system, flushing out toxins, and breaking down and detoxifying fat.
