Unfortunately, due to the diet of most Americans we expose our bodies far too many calories and far too little actual nutrition. Many people are trying to eat healthy and select food from the grocery store that advertises as a healthy alternative but in reality the vast majority of food sold in your grocery store is over-processed and stripped of any nutritional value. This has led to an epidemic of obesity in the United States where more than one out of every three people is clinically obese. Despite continued advancements in modern medicine, obesity is threatening to decrease the average American life expectancy moving forward.
At Meta Pharmacy Services we can help to jump start your weight loss. Often times we start by sending a small sample of your saliva to the laboratory we work with to analyze your stress and sex hormones. Some patients require additional information in which case we can also evaluate your neurotransmitters with an uncomplicated at home urine test. The results from these tests help us to determine which therapy will be most effective for you. Many of us have started and eventually failed at least one diet yet know another person who the same diet was very effective for. This is a perfect example of why your wellness/weight loss plan must be specifically tailored to your body. Some patients require a jumpstart with IV minerals and electrolytes to replenish the depleted cells in their body. Others may require therapy which targets specific hormones that are an integral part of a healthy body. Of course, we also combine medications and natural herbal supplements which directly increase your energy levels, your metabolic rate, and help with food cravings. Of course, it is always extremely important to evaluate underlying issues before treating symptoms otherwise we will be setting ourselves up for failure the same as all the other failed approaches. If you are tired of fad diets and gimmicky exercise programs come in and talk to us about our approach to help you meet your goals.
