If you are motivated to lose weight now and want results, this is the program for you!
This is a physician-supervised weight-loss program utilizing prescription injections. We use a range of evidenced-based prescription medications to help aid in weight loss.
Specific stress hormones in our bodies cause us to gain visceral fat. This is the fat, most commonly situated around the abdomen surrounding our internal organs, which the body normally stores for use in a “starvation” situation. As we age, these hormone levels decline, and visceral fat tends to accumulate. Excess accumulation of visceral fat is associated with many health issues, including chronic stress, heart disease, stroke, and diabetes.

A medically supervised weight-loss program with our Naturopathic Doctors involves supplemental weekly injections of Lipotropic (MIC and B12) Vitamins to support energy; a tailored healthy nutrition and dietary plan, selected prescribed medications when appropriate and weekly body composition screening (which measures and tracks your muscle percentage, fat percentage, hydration status and basal metabolic rate.
Does this really Work?
We use selective medications and natural substances that help the body in states of sugar dysregulation, insulin resistance and hunger and satiety signalling. some medications influence the hypothalamus in the brain to guide the metabolism of fat via the hormone leptin and its ability to burn fat. The key point here is documented in scientific articles such as in the Journal Of Endocrinology (Aug 2007.) “what we see in clinical practice is the significant stimulation of secretion of the pro-adipogenic factor, leptin, from human adipose tissue”. The interdependence of certain natural agents, leptin, and insulin are undoubtedly at the core of how we store and burn fat.
We recommend alwasy starting with a dietary cleanse for a 2 or 4 week duration, followed by out Medically Supervised Weight Loss program, depending on your individual weight loss goal You will be carefully monitored on a weekly basis. You will also receive weekly visits that include the Lipotropic injections, BioImpedance Analysis (Fat %, muscle %, hydration, etc) progress report review, and support. Many of my patients find their weekly Lipotropic injections incredibly helpful for energy and motivation. Other patients may opt for more support…
Prior to starting on the Medically Supervised Weight Loss Program we will ask you book an initial consultation, conduct a pre-screening assessment, ask you to bring in any recent blood work and order any further tests (if needed) to determine suitability.
