Holistic Weight loss in one word:  balance

Discovering if you have a systemic imbalance in your body may be the missing piece to your weight loss puzzle. Whether it’s hormonal imbalance, adrenal dysfunction, digestive, inflammatory, or detoxification system imbalance, correcting it is key to natural and lasting weight loss — and to your overall health. Because once your body is restored to its natural balance, excess weight will come off.

Our unique weight loss program consists of:

Acupuncture treatments increase blood circulation, promote sleep, balance hormones, reduce cortisol levels, and de-stress your body (toning down your fight or flight response). Recent studies have shown that acupuncture has a unique ability to influence obesity hormones. Research measuring the effectiveness of acupuncture for weight loss found treatments increased the ghrelin in the body, a hormone that controls meal initiation, and decreased leptin, the hormone that regulates fat storage and metabolism.

Auricular Therapy

Acupuncture points on the ears have been found to be particularly effective for weight loss. A micro-system of points that treat pain, balance emotions, detoxifies the body and balances hormones when stimulated. This therapy is often used in treating food and substance addictions.
The needle or seeds will generally stay in place for a week and can be gently massaged for 10 second intervals if cravings occur.

Most patients report a marked decline in appetite and cravings with acupuncture alone, but herbs, healing foods and exercises can definitely enhance the efficacy of the treatments. The herbs and foods that are selected for you during a weight loss treatment are for promoting a healthy digestion, energizing your body, and improving the elimination of water, toxins and waste products. Foods that are bitter, sour and acrid to taste are especially good for weight loss, while sweet, salty and greasy foods should be greatly reduced.

Your food choices each day affect your health — how you feel today, tomorrow, and in the future. Good nutrition is an important part of leading a healthy lifestyle. Take a small step to better nutrition today, and move toward a healthier you.

The link between good nutrition and healthy weight, reduced chronic disease risk, and overall health is too important to ignore. By taking steps to eat healthy, you’ll be on your way to getting the nutrients your body needs to stay healthy, active, and strong. As with physical activity, making small changes in your diet can go a long way, and it’s easier than you think!

Lipotropic nutrients are a class of agents that play important roles in the body’s use of fat. These compounds enhance the liver and gallbladder’s role by decreasing fat deposits and speeding up metabolism of fat and its removal. Your liver is the organ responsible for removing fat and toxins from your body, so if it is healthier, it will work better for you. The key amino acids used to make these shots are: Choline, Methione, and Inositol. Vitamin B12 is essential for helping to form new, healthy cells in the body. It also boosts energy, helping to increase activity levels. Our Lipo-B injection combines lipotropic agents with a highly absorbable form of Vitamin B12 called Methylcobalamin.

Exercise Counseling

Exercise in any way that feels good to you. Exercise is one of the most effective ways to balance your hormones and lose weight. Exercise burns calories and helps regulate your insulin levels, reversing some of the metabolic imbalances that contribute to weight gain and fertility problems. Furthermore, when you exercise, your body rewards you by releasing a cascade of feel-good hormones (endorphins). These endorphins are Mother Nature’s antidepressants, lowering your stress and boosting your sense of wellbeing.

You can get the positive effects of exercise by just walking for 30 minutes every day. The effect of your workout can be further enhanced by incorporating more activity into your daily routine: try parking your car a few blocks from work or your destination or taking stairs instead of an elevator whenever possible, as well as hiking, biking, or swimming.

Stress Reduction

Chronic stress can lead to elevated cortisol levels which in turn can lead to inflammation, insomnia, irritability, and increased abdominal fat. Practices such as qi gong, yoga, meditation and tai qi are very effective ways to reduce stress and induce deep relaxation.
