Millions of Americans struggle with weight issues every day. Excess body weight can lead to a number of unwelcome conditions, some of them medically critical. If you have tried various diets and exercise regimens to no real avail, we may be able to help. With medical weight loss, you can slim down your frame and beef up your health in a safe and regulated way. We encourage you to read about two of the programs we offer and see if one of them might be the answer for you.
Weight Loss With HCG
The HCG approach tackles weight loss at the roots. HCG stands for human chorionic gonadotrophin, a dynamic hormone released by the placenta during pregnancy. This hormone serves as a fat mobilizer, helping to metabolize sizeable fat reserves and resculpt certain stubborn areas such as the abdomen or thighs. HCG stimulates the hypothalamus, which allows the body to rid itself of large amounts of fat; unfortunately, the hypothalamus can get overloaded by excess fuel from many processed food products in the typical American diet. The HCG method combines a low-calorie and low-carb diet with the exact amount of HCG necessary to stimulate the hypothalamus, resetting and helping it function properly. HCG can also serve as a mild appetite suppressant, and when in conjunction with naturopathic stress management and dietary detoxification, it can help pave the way for stalwart and lasting weight loss.
Weight Loss With the Ketogenic Diet
The ketogenic diet encourages the body into its natural metabolic state of ketosis, in which it burns fat over carbohydrates for primary energy. Fat supplies the body with 225% more energy than carbs, as well as a purer source of fuel. This not only provides a wealth of health benefits but can also even aid in the treatment of cancer; a diet low in sugar and high in ketones can deprive cancer cells of the sugar that expedites their progress. Benefits of the ketogenic diet include balanced blood sugar, improved sleep and focus, heightened mood, decreased inflammation, and reduction of free radicals.
