What is medical weight loss?

protein, low-calorie meal plans so you don’t feeldeprived during your weight-loss journey.


Why does medical weight loss work?

Having the right tools in place for weight loss, such as nutritional education, accountability from a health professional, and access to medical care, is why medical weight loss is often more effective than other weight-loss programs. 

The experienced team at The Alternative Touch Wellness offer a personalized approach to weight loss. They tailor each diet and nutrition program to your specific body and medical profile in order to help you achieve optimal results. 

You might discover that simply balancing hormone levels allows you to drop weight after years of past failed attempts.


What should I expect during my initial appointment?

When you arrive for your medical weight loss consultation at The Alternative Touch Wellness, you’re greeted by warm, welcoming staff. 

Your provider reviews your medical history, weighs you, and checks your vital signs. They discuss your weight-loss goals and complete a comprehensive health exam.

Your practitioner may recommend blood or imaging tests to detect or rule out an underlying medical condition that affects weight loss, such as a thyroid problem or hormone imbalance. 

If your hormone or nutrient levels aren’t within a healthy range, The Alternative Touch Wellness provider may recommend hormone therapies, vitamin supplements, or medications to get your levels back on track. 

They may also suggest appetite suppressants or meal replacements to keep you from feeling deprived and to prevent nutritional deficiencies.

The Alternative Touch Wellness offers nutritional counseling and helps you create a personalized, reduced-calorie weight-loss meal plan.


How often should I attend weight-loss sessions?

Your practitioner lets you know how often to schedule check-in appointments so they can review your progress, review hormone levels, renew prescription medications, or refine your meal plan when necessary.

Weight loss is about whole body wellness. If you're overweight and don't implement healthy habits now, the odds of gaining more weight are high, which translates to a greater risk of health problems. 

Don’t let being overweight reduce your quality of life. Call The Alternative Touch Wellness to learn more or book an appointment online today.
