MEDICALLY SUPERVISED WEIGHT MANAGEMENT
A Comprehensive Approach
For many, weight management is a much more complex issue that runs deeper than just food and behavior modification. As a result, medical intervention is sometimes required to help "normalize" biological imbalances. Through comprehensive testing, Dr. Stefanie Vaimakis, a bariatric surgeon, and I are able to determine what your specific problem is when it comes to weight. We feature genetic and hormonal testing, metabolic measurements, body composition assessment, proprietary fat burning injections, FDA-approved pharmacotherapy, food sensitivity testing and customized meal plans and to help optimize your outcomes and achieve your weight- and health-related goals.
As part of our team work, your progress on our program will be monitored and evaluated on an ongoing basis, consistently measuring your current state versus your goals.
BODY COMPOSITION MEASUREMENT
The body composition scale sends an imperceptible current through your body (bioelectrical impedance). These measurements tell you about your body fat, muscles, metabolism, bone structure and body water.
FOOD SENSITIVITY TESTING
Sometimes certain foods can make you feel unwell, regardless if they’re healthy or not. They may trigger any number of food sensitivity symptoms, such as headaches, digestive issues, joint pain or skin problems. It can be tricky to figure out which foods are the culprits, as food sensitivity reactions are often delayed by a few hours or longer after eating the foods. To help identify potentially problematic foods I offer food sensitivity tests.
RESTING METABOLIC RATE (RMR)
By measuring your resting metabolic rate or RMR, which is a unique number affected by our weight, age, body composition, hormone levels, and gender, we can get a more precise assessment of how much energy (or fuel) your body burns in a day.
HORMONAL & GENETIC TESTING
A comprehensive report detailing your genotype in seven areas and provides you with diet and exercise strategies that are tailored to your genotype.
Saliva testing is used for measuring hormones such as cortisol, estrogen and testosterone, and its non-invasive collection asks patients to spit into a plastic tube.
IV NUTRITION THERAPY
IV therapies and vitamin injections provide a 100% absorption rate and get to work quickly to give your immune system and metabolism a boost, replenish your hydration levels, restore your vitamin and nutrient balance, and help you on your journey to better wellbeing. Other conditions treated with specialty infusion therapies may include cancers, congestive heart failure, Crohn's Disease, hemophilia, immune deficiencies, multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, and more.
