Obesity in our society is at epidemic proportions. We find ourselves overworked and continually stressed out. As a result, exercise and proper diet take a back seat for many of us. Obesity hurts our self-esteem, health and longevity, and zaps our energy. Luckily, Affordable Laser & MedSpa has several solutions to help you look and feel your best.
What is medical weight loss?
Affordable Laser & MedSpa offers two proven ways to help you lose weight and make the most of your health. Our new Weight Loss/Nutrition clinic works in tandem with our other procedures. Our nutritionists offer weight loss packages that work, combining counseling with recommending proven supplements.
Our physician-supervised HCG diet plan works thanks to Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG) – a hormone naturally produced in the body. It has many functions and is used medically to treat a variety of conditions. HCG is the pregnancy hormone that almost completely controls metabolic functions. This hormone allows the body to mobilize fat and use it as energy for both mother and fetus. This acts as a “fail-safe” mechanism when energy is needed immediately. For weight loss, we use small amounts of HCG to capitalize on this same mechanism. Using HCG in this way does NOT mimic pregnancy; in fact, it can be safely used by both adult men and women.
How can medical weight loss help?
Any time you have the help of a physician and a doctor on your side, you’re far more likely to find success. The right advice can help you find the proper foods to eat and the appropriate exercise program. Those two factors alone can propel you to success.
How does medical weight loss work?
Our weight loss/nutrition clinic will develop a customized diet plan that will not only help you lose weight, but lower your cholesterol and improve your energy level. Our physician-supervised HCG program works in 3 distinct ways:
- HCG causes your hypothalamus to mobilize the fat out of the abnormal fat storage locations so that it’s available for use. While you are only consuming 500 calories, your hypothalamus is continually releasing the fat stored in your body. Because of this, your body is actually operating on thousands of calories a day. The result is your body using thousands of calories of fat from your abnormal fat stores each day. This is the reason HCG users lose one to two pounds of fat or more each day.
- Maintains a normal basal metabolic rate.
- Resets the hypothalamus to prevent future regain.
What should I expect during treatment?
You should expect to see real weight loss results with either program. The HCG program helps to increase your metabolism while you maintain a low calorie, healthy diet. Most patients lose 15 to 30 pounds per month on the treatment.
Is this treatment safe?
Absolutely. While HCG hasn’t been approved to treat weight loss, it has been studied in many weight loss patients, and the results have been quite positive.
Who is a good candidate for medical weight loss?
Anyone who is overweight or obese can use either of our programs with excellent results. If you have ongoing health issues like diabetes, we’ll custom-design a program to meet your specific needs.
