Why We Love It
In the medical world, we know that obesity leads to many debilitating and even deadly diseases. From diabetes, to heart disease, strokes, and even some cancers, carrying extra pounds can affect hormones, metabolism, and places a great deal of stress on all cells within the body.
Some of us go to our doctors and are simply told, “try losing some weight,” (easier said than done) leaving many of us feeling hopeless, alone, unheard, and frustrated.
However, with the proper guidance and a team of medical professionals who take the time and care, we will promote a sustainable approach to losing weight AND keeping it off. By looking at the root cause and addressing health imbalances, our goal is to bring the body back to a more coherent state, shedding pounds along the way, working to prevent damaging diseases. We want you to unlock your purest form.
I struggled for years to lose weight and it was really taking a toll on my confidence. Since I started working with Carissa, I’ve lost 30 lbs already! My mood has improved drastically, and I feel so much more balanced and healthy as a whole.
Frequently Asked Questions:
How often do I get to meet with the provider?
Our provider will sit with you once for an initial consultation at the start of your weight loss program, and then will schedule at least two follow-up appointments to monitor your progress. Our health coach will check-in with you once per week.
Can you help me with my diet?
Absolutely! Our experts specialize in making patient-specific diet recommendations based on your symptoms, bloodwork, and the information gathered throughout your consultations. You don’t have to do this alone.
What types of treatments are involved?
From diet, exercise, and lifestyle changes, to cutting-edge treatment modalities, supplements and medications, we have many different resources available. Your provider will work together with you to determine the best treatment plan for your specific needs. There are no cookie-cutter approaches to this.
How do I make sure not to regain weight?
This is one of the most frequently asked questions and often a major concern for patients looking to lose weight long-term. Habits affect every aspect of your life. Together, we will understand and create sustainable habits that will positively shape our attitudes, actions and decisions – in addition to helping you initially take the weight off.
