How much weight can I lose on a weight loss program?
80% of Americans find themselves to be classified as overweight. 50% of Americans are obese. These numbers alone are responsible for the skyrocketing health care costs in this country. As we age, our metabolism slows and losing weight becomes more difficult. Although the weight gain may subsequently lead to further health problems like diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, and even stress on joints, traditional insurance based medical practices have not been successful in compensating physicians for incorporating health counseling into their practices. Hence, patients don’t always feel that their providers have the time necessary to adequately meet their needs of health counseling.
As a physician, I want to help you achieve your goals of losing weight and maintaining a healthy lifestyle using a safe natural approach. During an initial consultation, your health information will be reviewed. Suggestions will be made to modify your lifestyle in manners that can contribute to effective weight loss. Dieting refers to restricting one’s food intake and in and of itself has not been proven to provide sustained weight loss. At E’lan Vital Medical Spa, the best practices of nutritional cleansing, intermittent fasting, and detoxification will be used to release fat while maintaining muscle mass and restoring vitality and energy to your life.
