Tools for Success

Medication

The proper use of medication can help you lose weight when diet and exercise are not enough, and also when medically indicated. As part of a physician monitored individualized program your supplemental weight loss medication will be carefully selected and your current medical conditions and medications will be taken into account. Physician may use appetite suppressants as powerful tool to help you make lifestyle changes, boost your metabolism, and control your appetite. We may also use “carb-blocker” type medication for partially blocking carbohydrates absorption and colon cleansers to help with bowel movement regulation and speedy body fat elimination.

Injections

We use vitamin B-complex injections with lipotropic factors. These injections are combination of vitamins B5, B6, B12, and lipotropic amino acids. Vitamin B is an essential vitamin used by the body to create energy. In addition, lipotropics are a natural combination of three amino acids which are targeted towards the liver. Since the liver is involved in removing fat from the body. These injections help you to lose weight by boosting energy so that you will burn off more calories and increasing the removal of fat from the body. We do see an average additional weight loss of 2.5% for women and 3.7% for men.

Hence, they are an integral and important part of our comprehensive weight management program and provide patients with high quality (medical grade) lean protein on a daily basis. Therefore meal replacements and nutritional supplements are either our own or are among world’s best and were “hand-picked” by us after comprehensive research.
