Our Dupage Health & Wellness in Glen Ellyn, IL Discusses Medical Weight Loss
There are many factors that can affect weight loss. Our Glen Ellyn wellness center family practice understands that each person is an individual, and weight loss methods that work for one person may not work for another. At DuPage Health & Wellness in Glen Ellyn, IL we use integrative health methods to help you use a variety of techniques to meet your weight loss goals.
Traditional Weight Loss Methods
We all know the basics: eat less, move more. Our integrative approach to health recognizes that it's not always this simple. It's important to look at the foods you're eating, explore the possibilities of allergies creating inflammation, and create a nutrition plan that makes sense for your body. We'll also explore types of exercise that make sense for your body and take into consideration any physical injuries or limitations that may restrict how you're able to move your body. We always try to help our patients use traditional methods of weight loss before moving on to trying medical methods.
Medical Weight Loss at Our Wellness Center
If we find that traditional methods are not getting you where you want to be, we may recommend medications that can help you in your journey. The medications we use are FDA approved for weight loss. These may include (but are not limited to) Adipex (appetite suppressant), Belviq (appetite suppressant), Contrave (decreasing cravings, can increase willpower to help you fight cravings), and Saxena (slows the emptying of the stomach). We sometimes also recommend medications that are typically used for people with diabetes, as these medications can sometimes help people without diabetes lose weight.
Injection therapy is another option for help with weight loss. B-12 injections increase energy, making it easier to exercise. We also offer MIC/B-Complex injections, which stimulate the metabolism and boost energy.
