There are many of reasons to lose weight: To be healthier. To feel better. To have increased energy. To decrease cholesterol levels and blood pressure. To decrease the risk of cancer.

No matter what the reason, successful weight loss and healthy weight management depend on sensible goals and expectations. We find that partnering with a physician helps people lose weight more consistently, safely, and permanently. Naturopathic philosophy stresses lifestyle changes in lieu of temporary meal plans and fanatic exercise regimes.

Most overweight individuals should lose weight gradually. For safe and healthy weight loss, we recommend losing no more than two pounds per week. Sometimes, people with serious health problems associated with obesity may have legitimate reasons for losing weight rapidly. If so, a physician’s supervision is required.

For certain individuals, hCG weight loss therapy may be appropriate.
