The risks of carrying excess body weight are many: Obesity and being overweight are linked to heart disease, stroke, atherosclerosis, Type 2 diabetes, arthritis, high blood pressure, sleep apnea, and more.
Unfortunately, losing weight isn’t easy. Habits are hard to break, especially when they involve veering from your usual routine and avoiding your favorite foods. But with some professional guidance and support, you can turn your life around.
The weight loss experts at Viva Wellness Medical Group, led by Dr. Michael Tachuk, offer supervised weight loss programs that are up to 90% successful.
Why is medical weight loss so successful?
Two words: “customized” and “multifaceted.”
Supervised weight loss programs encourage success from the get-go because these programs are tailored to you and emphasize all of the areas you need to work on. Instead of focusing solely on food, weight loss programs at Viva Wellness Medical Group encompass all of the important factors in successful weight loss:
- Nutrient and hormone balance
What do I get with a medical weight loss program?
All medically supervised weight loss programs differ, but with Viva Wellness Medical Group, you can expect to receive all the tools and support you need to achieve lasting weight loss. Dr. Tachuk offers medical weight loss packages that may include any combination of the following assets:
Professional guidance and support
Weight loss isn’t easy, but it becomes much easier when you have someone to hold you accountable. Your provider at Viva Wellness Medical Group isn’t just a medical specialist — your provider becomes your partner in establishing and maintaining new healthy habits.
Sometimes, we recommend prescription medications to make the weight loss process easier. You’ll find out if you’re a candidate for a weight loss prescription after your consultation.
Supplements can help fill in any gaps in your diet to ensure you meet your daily nutritional requirements. Some supplements can also increase fat burning, help you build muscle, balance hormones, and reduce your appetite.
During a medical weight loss program, you cut down on the amount of calories you eat. In response, you may feel fatigued, drained, or otherwise uncomfortable. Vitamin injections can boost your energy and enhance your metabolism to support weight loss.
Like vitamin injections, IV therapy can ease the discomfort that comes with a calorie cut. Vitamin IVs also keep you hydrated and ensure your nutrient levels stay where they need to be.
Infrared sauna therapy
Who doesn’t love a good sauna session? Not only do infrared saunas relax you, but they increase your heart rate and body temperature, which can lead to increased calorie burning.
Medical weight loss results
Everyone’s weight loss results vary based on their starting point, health conditions, program preferences, and more, but the ultimate factor is you. Only you have the power to start a medical weight loss program and stick to it. We at Viva Wellness Medical Group are here to help along the way.
In general, though, you can expect the following benefits from a medical weight loss program:
- Weight loss and fat loss (obviously!)
- Increased energy
- Improved focus and productivity
- Better sleep
- Happiness and improved mood
- Fewer aches and pains, especially in your joints
- Alleviation of health conditions caused by excess weight (such as hypertension)
