Anyone who struggles with body issues knows the burden of feeling blamed for your weight gain and how frustrating it is when the old-fashioned “calories in-calories out” weight loss formulas fail. That is not your fault. Weight gain and loss are much more complicated than people get led to believe.
At the Med Spot, Dr. Michelle Reyes and her experienced staff understand that being overweight has a wide range of different causes. A lack of exercise and a poor diet can certainly contribute to these issues. Other physical concerns can play a part, such as sleep, stress, hormone imbalances, and your digestive processes.
At the Med Spot, we will determine the root causes of your unwanted weight and then design a targeted weight loss program to suit your unique needs.
The first step in creating your customized weight loss program is to schedule a consultation and take a blood sample. Analyzing your blood can shine a light on various reasons that you may find it difficult to lose weight or might be gaining weight despite healthy habits.
Bloodwork can reveal problems with insulin, thyroid imbalances, or low levels of sex hormones. All of which remain essential to a healthy metabolism. The Med Spot offers hormone replacement therapy, which can get your body not just looking better but feeling much better as well. The goal is not just to have a well-maintained exterior but to achieve overall wellness.
During your consultation with Dr. Michelle Reyes, you will discuss your lab results and how any imbalances can impact overall health and weight loss efforts. She will ensure you understand your situation and the available treatment options to make an informed decision regarding treatment and goal options.
The Med Spot can also provide patients with prescription medications that suppress the appetite and speed up the metabolism. Your bloodwork results and your personal consultation will reveal if you are a good candidate for this kind of medication.
Journals and Weekly Check-ins
To better understand the direct effects that the program is having, you will get asked to keep a daily journal documenting your experience. That will give Dr. Michelle Reyes and healthcare team members at The Med Spot more insight into what is happening in your everyday life and how that is impacting your desired results. These insights will allow Dr. Michelle Reyes and The Med Spot team to coach you on strategies for weight loss and show her the best way to adjust your treatment plan if needed. All bodies are different, and not everyone reacts to the same nutritional or supplemental approach in the same way.
In addition to monitoring your journal entries, these weekly visits will check up on your weight, pulse, and blood pressure. Periodically, you will also get given further blood tests to re-check your hormone levels or other issues for which you are getting treated. Throughout your weight loss journey, you will get to know what your body needs to look and feel its best.
Dr. Michelle Reyes’ Standard Nutritional Approach for Weight Management
Your weight loss plan at The Med Spot will feature a nutritional approach that not only assists with weight loss but also your overall health and energy levels. Here are a few of the techniques she employs in her five-star medical practice.
A few of the fasting methods that Dr. Michelle Reyes and her team have seen the most dramatic weight loss results from are:
Hormones are critical for all body functions, including growth, digestion, and metabolism. Both men and women lose hormones or experience hormonal imbalances with age, and this can happen at a much younger age for some people. Thankfully, no matter when it begins, this part of the aging process can get reversed by supplementing the body with new, healthy hormones.
Through blood work analysis, we can determine which hormones you are deficient in and how much supplementation will be required to bring you back into balance and optimal functioning. If you have found yourself gaining weight despite healthy eating and a regular exercise routine, or if you have gradually become too tired to exercise the way you used to, insufficient levels of testosterone or another hormone could be the problem. With proper levels restored, some patients find themselves losing weight almost as quickly as they gained it.
The Med Spot specializes in Bioidentical Hormone Therapy, which derives hormones from natural, plant-based sources. Bioidentical hormones replenish your body’s levels in a way that complements its natural processes because they seamlessly fill in where needed. You can choose compounded hormone therapy if your issue is mild or, for more dramatic results, choose BioTe™ Pellet Therapy.
