LifeWay Health is excited to offer evidence based weight loss program to help you achieve your ideal healthy weight. Our practice will offer many different options to choose from to best meet your needs to help ensure a high success rate.
DNA analysis of genetics can help tailor diet to your genetic composition to facilitate weight loss, increase nutrient absorption, decrease hunger, and increase satiety (sense of feeling full). We can guide you on supplementation if requested. Additionally, we will offer food sensitivity testing to help you identify "healthy" foods you may be eating that your body creates inflammation in response to which could hinder weight loss.
The providers at LifeWay Health will discuss possible medication assisted weight loss if desired including phentermine, B 12 and MIC injections. MIC injections contain:
Methionine: it supports the digestive system by helping to remove heavy metals within the body while breaking down fat deposits thus preventing the possible build-up of fat in arteries. Methionine can also be converted to cytosine, the precursor of glutathione, which is essential in detoxification of the liver.
Inositol: supports the transfer of nutrients at the cellular level and to help maintain proper electrical energy across the cell membrane. In addition, Inositol converts fats into other useful forms of energy and assists in establishing healthy cell membranes thus facilitating nerve impulses.
Choline: assists in controlling cholesterol levels in the blood and in controlling weight gain by maintaining healthy cell membranes. Choline has been linked to and directly associated in the maintenance of the nervous system, assisting memory, and is critical for normal cell membrane structure and function. Choline is the precursor of betaine which is helps in liver function and in the formation of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine.
B vitamins and L-Carnitine are also found in MIC injections which have additional benefits in weight loss and overall well-being. They serve an important role in the metabolism of carbohydrates and breaking down nutrients for energy. Vitamin B3 can help reduce cholesterol levels.
