Weight loss is such a tricky subject these days. Because it’s become a multi-billion-dollar industry, far too many weight loss products and services, diets and plans, promote and even sell you things that are unproductive at best, one-size-fits-all that don’t suit your individual needs, not medically approved or scientifically based, and often very bad for your health.
Any time you’re trying to make improvements to your body, you should consult an acting physician. This is why I’m starting a new medical weight loss program as part of my Bradenton functional medicine practice.
As I’ve said before, as a functional medicine practitioner, I pride myself on getting to know each individual patient as a person. Only then can I identify potential trouble spots and recommend measures that take into account the whole body’s interlocking physiology.
My Bradenton medical weight loss program follows this practice, too. Here’s what I’m offering.
For Bradenton Individuals with Bradenton Lifestyles
Each person practices their own unique lifestyle, with its stressors, rewards, and support systems. By first asking each patient to fill out a survey, and then meeting with them face-to-face, I get a better picture of where you’re starting from, what you’re aiming for, and what practical, medically sound modifications will work for you.
Here’s how it works:
- Clients will complete a health history and assessment and have labs drawn prior to their initial consultation.
- Once we receive results, they will come in to see the physician (me) to review their health history and discuss their weight loss goals.
- I will provide them with nutrition recommendations and lifestyle modifications based on their health needs. These nutrition guides are researched and backed by the Institute of Functional Medicine.
Bradenton Weight Loss with Medical Support
Of course, I know that anyone who’s tried to lose weight in the past has probably found that lifestyle modifications don’t always work. They can be hard to adhere to, especially if you’re taking the advice of a once-size-fits-all “expert” on the internet.
That’s why I’m supplementing my Bradenton weight loss program with lipotropic medications, available at my recommendation, from your first visit.
“Lipotropic” literally means “using fat.” My lipotropic injections contain a complementary mix of vitamins and supplements that act individually and together to encourage your body to tap into its fat stores.
Here’s what’s in these lipotropic injections and what they do:
- Pyridoxine (B6): Promotes red blood cell production and converts food to energy.
- Methionine: Helps break down sugars and carbohydrates, converting them to energy.
- Inositol: Converts food to energy.
- Choline: Promotes healthy nerve cells, cuts muscle recovery time, helps convert fat to energy.
- Cyanocobalamin: Increases energy, promotes healthy nerve cells.
- Thiamine (B1): Improves the immune system, helps convert fat and carbohydrates into energy.
- Riboflavin (B2): Increases metabolism, supports immune system.
- Carnitine: Improves fat metabolism and energy, reduces recovery times and promotes muscle-building potential.
Bradenton Weight Loss Support, Accountability, and More
Of course, your mind plays a vital part in your health. And any health journey or challenge you choose to undergo must be supported mentally and emotionally.
My Bradenton weight loss program provides a journal to track weekly progress. At our initial visit together, I will help to provide you with a tool kit for using your journal in the most productive way possible.
Also, for the first six weeks of the program, you will follow up with me weekly for support and accountability (and for injections/medication if you choose).
You will then follow up with me again after six weeks to monitor your progress and adjust your program as needed.
These are among the many reason I believe that this weight loss program will be successful for my patients: face-to-face meetings right here in my Bradenton medical office, ongoing support, physician-guided adjustments as needed, and an overall approach that takes you, your body, and your lifestyle into account.
