Integrative Medicine Q&A

What is integrative medicine?

Integrative medicine is a focus of health care that addresses more than just your symptoms. This proactive approach to weight loss also looks at the root causes of weight gain and why you may have difficulty losing weight.

The Vitality Weight Loss and Wellness Institute team takes an integrative approach to weight loss to help you understand factors that influence your metabolism and your ability to lose weight.

The experienced dream team includes physicians, counselors, mindset coaches, and personal trainers that all work together on your behalf to help you achieve and maintain a healthy body weight.

How can I benefit from integrative medicine?

The goal of an integrative medicine consultation is to identify all the underlying factors that interfere with successful weight loss.

The integrative medicine services available at Vitality Weight Loss and Wellness Institute focus on uncovering underlying metabolic disorders and other health issues that cause you to gain weight or make it difficult to lose weight, such as:

  • Hormone imbalance
  • Thyroid disorder
  • Chronic inflammation
  • Stress
  • Depression
  • Cushing syndrome
  • Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)

You might also be limited by arthritis or other musculoskeletal conditions that make it difficult for you to stay physically fit and active.

By understanding what’s affecting your metabolism, the team can offer solutions to make your weight loss journey more successful.

What can I expect during an integrative medicine consultation?

The Vitality Weight Loss and Wellness Institute team spends quality time with you reviewing your medical history, your existing health, and your lifestyle.

They offer on-site blood work and other diagnostic testing to identify underlying health issues that cause weight gain or that interfere with weight loss. Based on the results of your testing, they discuss your treatment options for underlying conditions and discuss strategies that support safe and fast weight loss.

These strategies may include:

  • Nutritional counseling
  • Personal fitness training
  • Mindset coaching
  • Psychological counseling

The team also uses Federal Drug Administration (FDA)-approved appetite suppressants to kickstart your weight loss journey and lower your risk for obesity-related health complications.
