Medical Weight Loss

In the realm of healthcare, one of the most profound journeys I embark upon with my patients is the path to achieving a healthy weight. Obesity, often accompanied by a host of related health challenges, is a formidable adversary. At Better Health Primary Care, our weight loss clinic is more than a set of guidelines—it’s a shared commitment to your well-being. It’s about reclaiming vitality, embracing lasting change, and discovering the joy of a healthier life.

What is Medical Weight Loss?

Technically speaking, medical weight loss is defined as the process of losing weight under the guidance of a physician, who uses their knowledge and medical experience to help someone struggling to lose weight to create a realistic plan that meets their unique circumstances.

However, our Medical Weight Loss Program is so much more than just a list of do’s and don’ts.

Understanding the Journey: Embarking on a weight loss journey is a deeply personal experience, and it’s my privilege to walk alongside my patients as they navigate this path. Understanding the challenges and emotions that come with excess weight is the first step.

Comprehensive Health Assessment: Our medical weight loss program begins with a thorough health assessment. We delve into your medical history, lifestyle, and individual goals. This comprehensive understanding allows us to tailor a personalized weight loss plan that aligns with both your health needs and your unique preferences.

Nutritional Guidance with a Personal Touch: Nutrition is the cornerstone of our program. Together, we explore balanced and sustainable dietary choices that suit your lifestyle. No crash diets or extreme measures—just a realistic and gradual transformation that ensures you enjoy the journey and the benefits it brings.

Physical Activity as a Joyful Pursuit: Exercise is not just a means to an end; it’s a celebration of what our bodies can achieve. We work together to find physical activities that bring you joy, ensuring that staying active becomes an integral part of your routine.

Mindful Eating and Emotional Wellness: Understanding the connection between emotions and eating habits is crucial. We explore mindful eating techniques and strategies to foster emotional wellness, nurturing a positive relationship with food.

Medication Support when Needed: For some, the journey may involve medication support. This decision is made collaboratively, considering individual health factors and goals. We aim to make every step of the process as safe and effective as possible.

Regular Check-Ins and Celebrating Milestones: Regular check-ins are crucial. These moments allow us to evaluate progress, adjust our course if needed, and celebrate every milestone, no matter how small. Your achievements are a testament to your dedication, and each one is a cause for celebration.

The Challenges of Weight Loss

The journey to weight loss can be challenging, as many individuals face biological and environmental factors that make it difficult to shed excess pounds. Resisting permanent weight loss is a complex interplay of hormones and neurons in the hypothalamus, affecting appetite and food consumption. Additionally, the modern lifestyle, characterized by increased screen time, inadequate sleep, and heightened stress levels, makes it more challenging to adopt a healthy lifestyle.

Our mission is to help you overcome these hurdles and provide a personalized, effective medical weight loss solution. We are dedicated to supporting your journey toward a healthier, happier you.
