Losing weight can be challenging at the best of times, and some individuals may have a tougher time than others. If you have tried diet programs and exercise routines without success, or would simply like to supplement your existing program, medical weight loss could be the answer. This process creates a comprehensive health profile that can be used to determine the best course of action for you to lose weight! The National Institute of Health indicates that even losing 5% of your current weight can have incredibly profound improvements in your overall health!
The specialists at Nurturing You Women’s Health and Wellness meet with each of our weight loss patients and explore their medical and family history to gain a better understanding of what makes you unique. Our approach is unique because we implement a treatment plan that is based on various aspects of your genetics, lifestyle, and other predispositions.
