In recent decades, our country has seen what has been called an “obesity epidemic.” There has been a corresponding increase in chronic diseases and psychological problems, associated with this increase in excess fat mass. Excess fat mass can raise “bad” (LDL) cholesterol and lower “good” (HDL) cholesterol, and raise triglyceride levels, creating and increased risk for heart disease and stroke. Excess fat mass can also cause increased blood glucose and insulin, leading to a much greater risk for type 2 diabetes. It can increase blood pressure and cortisol levels. Excess fat mass also often leads to hormone dysregulation, such as decreased testosterone, and increased levels of bad estrogens. In short, excess fat mass contributes to poor health, and poor quality of life.
We are here to help! At the Health and Wellness Center, we specialize in not only weight loss, but fat loss. Our goal is to decrease excess fat mass while protecting muscle. As a result, the patient is not only lighter, but has achieved better tone, strength, energy levels, and much better health. We offer options to our patients, so they can find the approach that is right for them. Our nutritional interventions and lifestyle therapy programs teach patients to make positive changes in their day to day life that can have a big impact on their weight and their overall health. We use Bioelectrical Impedance technology to measure the patient’s body composition (fat mass vs. muscle mass, vs. water weight, etc.) to track the patients progress and make program adjustments for the best possible results. For patients with more expansive weight loss goals, or who are looking for a motivating jumpstart into a healthy lifestyle change, we offer the HCG Fat Loss Program. The HCG program is a 40 day diet program, combined with daily injections of the HCG hormone, which allows for safe and effective rapid weight loss. The HCG hormone influences the body’s metabolism to specifically target excess fat mass while protecting essential tissues such as muscle mass. On HCG, most patients lose an average of .5-1 lb per day, amounting to a total loss of anywhere from 20-40 lbs within 40 days!
Our promise is to guide you every step of the way through nutritional counseling, blood tests, and follow up appointments so you can maintain your weight after you reach your goal. We have helped hundreds of patients to reach their weight loss goals, reduce their use of prescription medications, and enjoy dramatic improvements in energy levels and overall wellness.
