Weight Loss Services

A New Weight Loss Philosophy…

Currently our society views weight loss as a disease and a problem which affects people from all different ethnic groups and all different walks of life. If you go to your physician, many times they recommend solutions which are at opposite ends of the spectrum, usually weight loss classes or possibly gastric bypass or lap band surgery. The consensus you get from every physician is that you need to lose weight and exercise, but many do not know how to get you to that point. At Body BalanceMD, we provide you with the tools to help you get there and the plan on how to go about doing it.

One of the “tools” we provide are FDA approved appetite suppressants, along with an effective plan and strategy for using these medications. By using these medications intelligently and strategically, we can help you achieve your weight loss goals more effectively. The following appetite suppressants and medications are approved for weight loss in conjunction with a nutritional program and exercise. These medications are endorsed by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). In or order for the program and medications to be effective, you must follow a reduced-calorie diet and exercise a minimum of three times per week in conjunction with the medication. In addition, to maintain your weight loss and prevent future weight gain, the changes that you made in your diet and consistent exercise must be continued after the weight has been lost.

Vitamin injections

At Body BalanceMD we utilize pharmacy grade vitamin injections. These vitamin injections are a combination B12, B-complex and amino acids which help optimize many of our body’s functions. People often ask why we do the vitamin injections. The vitamin injections are utilized because many times we do not know if a person is eating what they tell us they are eating, or if they are eating at all. By providing a vitamin injection which contains many important nutrients, we can insure the person is getting nutrients which help optimize their metabolism, nervous system and possibly enhance their mood.

Vitamin B-12 is an essential water-soluble vitamin. It helps maintain healthy nerve cells and red blood cells and is also needed to make DNA, the genetic material in all body cells. Vitamin B-12 is an important cofactor for energy production and plays a role in both a healthy metabolism and immune system. It supports healthy cognitive and nerve functions as well as memory and emotional well being.

The B-Complex vitamins are essential for the proper functioning of the nervous system and are perhaps the most important nutritional factor for healthy nerve cells. The B-Complex vitamins also play a role in the conversion of carbohydrates into energy, the metabolism of fats and proteins as well as maintenance of muscle tone in the G.I. tract.

Methionine, Inositol and Choline – Methionine is an amino acid which acts as a lipotropic agent to speed up removal of fat within the liver and to prevent excess fat build up in the body. Inositol is part of the vitamin B complex and aids in weight loss and the redistribution of body fat by breaking down or emulsifying fats in the body. Choline is also part of the vitamin B family and aids in the utilization of fats in the body and supports weight loss.

HCG Diet Plan

The HCG diet has gained popularity in the United States over the past few years. HCG is a hormone produced during pregnancy which allows the mother to accommodate the load of the fetus on the body, by activating fat cells for use as energy. HCG stands for Human Chorionic Gonadatropin. When injected for weight loss, this hormone functions to control the metabolic functions through the hypothalamus. The hypothalamus is the part of the brain which is in charge of regulating the metabolic rate, the fat storage, and moderates the thyroid and the adrenal glands. The HCG diet requires commitment from the patient as it is a low calorie diet and requires daily injections to be done by the patient. Ask our providers if this weight loss plan would be appropriate for you.
