We provide a realistic approach to weight control management that is both affordable and highly effective. The individually designed weight loss solutions will cater to your individual needs. Additionally, our professionals have hormonal imbalance training that changes your appetite, your metabolism, and your body composition.
Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG) is a hormone manufactured by the placenta during pregnancy and the pituitary gland in non-pregnant women. Combined with a personalized diet plan, HCG can reset your metabolism and help improve eating patterns.
How Does HCG Work?
The hormone performs two tasks. First, HCG releases adipose fat cells, allowing the body to use it as energy. Second, HCG acts as an appetite suppressant. Therefore, you will not have the temptation to cheat on your diet.
Is the HCG Diet Too Few Calories?
An HCG Diet plan typically includes a reduced calorie plan in the range of 500 to 800 calories. Under a typical unsupervised plan, this is a problem. Such calorie restriction can throw your body into “starvation mode”, and your body will hold on to fat. HCG solves this problem, allowing you to use fat stores as energy.
Combined with diet and exercise, phentermine is an effective treatment for obesity. Phentermine is a stimulant and is an FDA approved appetite suppressant. Lipotropic injections and a vitamin B-Complex supplement are recommended during this program.
Lipotropic compounds stimulate the metabolism, specifically of the fat in the liver. A fatty liver impacts your metabolism, digestion, distribution of nutrients, and other essential functions. Our Lipotropic Injections are a cocktail of vitamins, minerals, and lipotropic agents to help burn fat, boost energy, detoxify the liver, improve weight loss and more.
You have successfully reached your weight loss goals, and committed to better lifestyle choices. However, you still have problem areas. Lipo Laser is a non-surgical contouring body treatment to remove pockets of unsightly fat. The energy from our special laser forces fat cells to release their stores and shrink.
One of the newest weight loss medication available is Contrave, approved by the FDA in late 2014. It is the union of two drugs (naltrexone and bupropion) and used for long-term weight management. The drug is an appetite suppressant and used to decrease hunger and food cravings.
Another FDA approved weight management medication approved in 2012 is Belviq. It is not for everyone and will vary depending on every person’s circumstances. A modified diet and exercise program will be required and assigned while taking Belviq. If certain amount of weight has not been lost within the first 12 weeks of treatment, a change will be recommended.
