Currently, 1 in 3 adults are considered obese in the U.S. Studies show that 80% of American adults do not meet physical activity recommendations and over 45% of adults are not sufficiently active to achieve health benefits. Middle-aged adults and seniors have the highest obesity percentages of age groups in the U.S. as well.

Phentermine HCl -
Phentermine, an amphetamine-like prescription medication used to suppress appetite, can aid in weight loss by decreasing hunger and making you feel full longer. If you’re overweight, Phentermine might be a good option for you. Phentermine is intended to be used as part of an overall weight-loss plan including healthy eating and physical activity, much like other weight-loss medications. It has been proven effective for short-term weight loss when used alongside a reduced-calorie diet and exercise.
Qsymia is a prescription medicine that contains phentermine and topiramate extended-release and clinically proven to help patients lose weight and inches off their waist. Qsymia can help you take control of the hunger and cravings you struggle with. It has been proven effective for short-term weight loss when used alongside a reduced-calorie diet and exercise.
GLP-1 Medication – Semaglutide (Ozempic) -
Semaglutide is a glucagon-like peptide (GLP-1) analog approved in 2017 as a treatment method for improving glycemic control in patients with Type 2 diabetes. Semaglutide shows great promise for patients who are having difficulty losing weight. Studies have demonstrated that Semaglutide reduced appetite, improved control of eating, and reduced food cravings in addition to improved glycemic control. The greatest weight loss benefits were observed when Semaglutide is used in combination with lifestyle changes, such as improved diet and consistent exercise.
Sermorelin & Naltrexone
Naltrexone is used to help reduce feelings of hunger, curbs appetite, provides enhanced fat burning and weight loss, and mental clarity. Sermorelin stimulates the body’s own growth hormone levels, aiding in faster recovery from workouts, and helping restore the body’s natural sleep cycle.
• Insulin resistance
• Obstructive sleep apnea
A 5-10% weight loss can reverse pre-diabetes and Type 2 diabetes!
On average, patients lose 6% of their weight, and keep it off 1+ years later.
Strong diabetes medications aim to reduce your Hemoglobin A1c by 0.5 points.
Our patients achieve higher levels of reduction with lifestyle change and little-to-no medication:
Diabetic patients reduce their A1c by 0.6 on average, to near pre-diabetic levels, AND maintain that drop 2 years later.
Pre-diabetic patients reduce their A1c by 0.4 on average, to regular levels, AND maintain that drop 2 years later.
Metabolic Syndrome: Insulin resistance
Patients with elevated insulin levels decrease their levels by 40% on average and maintain that drop 3 months later.
