Weight Loss Management

Millions of people worldwide are constantly switching from one quick weight loss plan to another and combining different exercise and nutrition recommendations. For the majority of you, there will be some minor results before the pounds pile back on.

It’s easy to become disheartened when you do not achieve the results promised by magazines, online blogs or trainers. The frustrating thing is that even when you adjust your diet and exercise plan in a very positive way, you simply can’t lose more than a couple of pounds at best.

If this rings familiar to you, book a consultation with our center for medical advice. We can investigate any underlying issues that, without treatment, can cause you to keep gaining weight or stop you from losing weight. At the Young Naturopathic Center For Wellness, we specialize in identifying and fixing such problems so that you can get into the healthy shape you have always dreamed of.

Let us first take a look at some of the most common issues that could be affecting you.
5 Underlying Reasons You’re Gaining Weight Even With Proper Exercise & Diet
If daily diets and exercise changes don’t seem to have any impact, you’re probably questioning what you’re doing wrong. You’ve followed a highly recommended weight loss plan, and nothing is happening. Or it is happening, but in much smaller incremental changes than is normal. It’s time to make your appointment with us.

What many people don’t realize is that there could be a few underlying health issues standing in your way. And unless you fix those, no amount of dieting or exercise will make much of a difference.

1 – Inflammation

Medical studies have shown that chronic inflammation is directly linked to weight gain. If you are suffering from chronic inflammation and it is going untreated or unidentified, there is a strong chance that it is causing those stubborn pounds to stay exactly where they are.

Our natural health clinic can help you identify any inflammation issues, determine what is causing them, and design a personalized strategy to help you reduce inflammation.

This will not only help you to start losing the unwanted pounds but will stop the constant battle with weight gain. You get to lose the excess weight and maintain your target on the scales more easily.

2 – Thyroid Issues

The thyroid gland is an essential part of the body, with its main task being the regulation of your metabolism. By releasing different hormones, it increases and decreases metabolic rates, which are directly responsible for how much weight you gain and lose.

People with abnormal thyroid activity often have an underactive metabolism. When this is left unchecked, your thyroid can wreak havoc on your weight and other areas of your life. We have helped many patients identify and overcome thyroid issues so they can adjust their metabolism and hormones and start leading a healthy, well-balanced life.

3 – Digestive Issues

You may be doing everything you can to eat a balanced and nutritious diet, but if your digestive system has a glitch, it could easily undermine even your best diet efforts.

Digestive issues could be indicative of acid reflux, ulcers, constipation, bacteria overgrowth or a number of other concerns. These issues can lead to other health problems when left untreated for years. Medicine is just beginning to understand how important the digestive system is to overall health — it’s even referred to as the second brain because it determines how many other body functions work.

No matter what your specific issue might be, it is in your best interest to identify and treat whatever might be keeping your digestive system off track. Getting this right will help with not only weight loss but also your overall health and well-being.

4 – Prescription Medication

One of the most common side effects of many prescription drugs is interfering with your metabolism. As a result, you will struggle with any weight loss plans you try out.

If you have been unsuccessful at shedding stubborn pounds despite your best efforts and are on any prescription medications, we encourage you to sign up for a consultation today. During this consultation, we will assess whether your prescriptions are contributing to your undesirable results.

Our doctors can investigate the symptom and cause of what the prescription medication is treating and determine a different treatment that would be more beneficial.

5 – Mental Health

One of today’s most common mental health issues is stress, and in most cases, it goes undiagnosed and untreated for a long time. Stress is a powerful condition that has real biological effects on your body and how it functions, including processes directly related to weight regulation.

Stress isn’t the only culprit; anxiety, depression and other issues could be sabotaging your weight loss dreams, along with making it difficult to live your best possible life. During a consultation with one of our doctors, we will look closely at your psychological health and well-being. This will not only allow you to address your weight loss issue but also help with your overall wellness.

By identifying any possible mental health issues, you can take the first step toward treating them and improving your day-to-day life. We have helped many patients reveal the underlying causes of their stress, anxiety and/or depression, ultimately helping them live happier lives without these crippling illnesses.

Take Advantage Of A Naturopathic Weight Loss Approach

Naturopathic medicine takes a unique approach to diagnosing and treating different illnesses. We focus on treating all the physical and mental causes and not just on the symptoms.

During your initial consultation, we will discuss all the options to give you the best possible foundation to kickstart the process to a healthier you.

Weight Loss Services

Genetic Testing

Genetics often plays a part in our patients’ inability to lose weight. With basically every cell in your body determined by your genes, it should come as no surprise that weight loss can be heavily hindered by them. We use the latest technology and most current genetic tests to identify certain markers that can point to an underlying genetic issue stopping you from losing weight.

A research study found that women who went on a diet that was compatible with their genetic makeup lost two to three times more weight than women on diets that were incompatible with their genes.

Once we understand your genetics, it’s a lot easier to create a weight loss plan tailored for you.

Customized Nutritional Diet Plans & Nutritional Counseling

You’ve probably read endless books, blogs and magazines recommending solutions that seem to suit your specific lifestyle and body shape. You’ve increased your vegetable intake and cut out fast food, sugar and all the unhealthy things, but the results are still disappointing.

In reality, all those popular diet plans are too generic.

If your unique makeup doesn’t conform to easy-to-access dietary information, and there aren’t any other underlying conditions preventing you from achieving your results, then a personalized nutritional plan and counseling session is your best option.

Here at the Young Naturopathic Center for Wellness, we take a nutritional weight and wellness approach that considers your overall physical and mental condition. Our Health and Wellness Coach can create a customized weight loss meal plan along with recommendations based on whole natural foods and nutritional supplements that are scientifically proven to benefit your overall health.

Your coaching session will also aim to identify any undiscovered food sensitivities that could be contributing to gut health issues and preventing you from losing weight.

Hormone Management

The human body does an amazing job at sending signals to different organs and glands through hormones. These messengers are critical to the overall functioning of practically every body part. Hormonal imbalances are known to be the causes of many illnesses and general health issues. So, if you’ve made all the right diet and lifestyle choices and are still struggling to look and feel healthy, your hormones are the most likely culprit.

Our comprehensive hormone testing, management and therapy services offer you a deeper understanding of your body’s hormonal activity. This will help to create a customized treatment to regulate your hormones, bringing you closer to your desired weight loss results.

Seasonal Cleansing

Seasonal cleanses are not only beneficial for the body but tend to have positive effects on your mind and spirit as well. A seasonal cleanse empowers you to break free from eating habits that have long held power over you. Such eating habits will keep you from achieving the weight and body you have been dreaming of.

We offer personalized cleanses designed for your body, so you can be on your way to shedding the stubborn pounds you have been longing to say goodbye to. Cleanses work best when you are monitored and coached throughout the process. Our team believes strongly in the benefits of seasonal cleanses and works with you to tailor a custom cleanse plan that will work for you.

HCG Weight Loss Protocol

HCG stands for Human Chorionic Gonadotropin and is the pregnancy hormone that triggers stored fat to be released as fuel for the developing baby. This hormone can be used for weight loss purposes in combination with a low-calorie diet to release anywhere from 1,500 to 4,000 calories a day.

Since your body is releasing stored fat, it will reduce the hunger signals triggered by hormones when there is a lack of energy available. This is most common on low-calorie diets and one of the main reasons people struggle to stick to those diets.

This weight loss method is generally used for six weeks and yields significant results for patients we determine to be ideal candidates.

Book your free consultation today to find out more about this unique approach.

Nutraceutical Supplementation

We will work with you to create an individualized supplement plan of weight loss-stimulating herbs and nutritional products that we determine serve your body’s unique makeup and needs.

Unlike nutritional supplements used to make up for a shortfall in your diet, nutraceutical supplements take specific components from common food sources to prevent common health conditions.
