Integrative Medicine Treats the Whole Person

Integrative medicine looks at the patient holistically, and may assess a patient in different ways in addition to traditional medical examinations and lab tests. These assessments are useful in telling us how the body is functioning, and in identifying  the root cause of your health issue. Identifying and treating the root cause of illness or imbalance  is a tenet of integrative and functional medicine. We offer more treatment options and therapies for healing mind, body and spirit, not just treating the symptoms.

HCG Weight Loss program will change your life

If you are willing to step out in faith and try something radical, this HCG Weight Loss program will change your life. It changed mine! I lost a total of 61.5lbs over 2 program sessions, including an 8 week transition. I went from a size 14 to a size 4 in 5 months and my waist went from 40” to 27’’. I was most astonished by where I lost the weight. I literally watched my stomach, hips and thighs shrink. I currently have the flattest stomach I have ever had, even though I have been at this weight in the past.

This program changed the way I think about eating and helped me to overcome my addiction to carbohydrates. What is equally amazing is how great I felt from eating an organic and non-processed food diet. This also resulted in my entire family eating healthier!! Furthermore, my allergy symptoms cleared up, and the headaches that I had previously experienced on a monthly basis were gone. I experienced a high level of energy and focus throughout the program and the sheer joy from the weight loss is indescribable! Sometimes I do not even recognize myself in the mirror.

The transition program is critical to long term success on this program. My biggest fear was that I would gain the weight back shortly after the weight loss phase ended. This fear was dissolved when I lost a total of 9 lbs during the 8 week transition period. The transition program is very well laid out and guided and is easy to follow. The consultants were there every step of the way to answer all my questions and give me daily tips and encouragement. Don’t wait, start today. It will be the greatest gift you can give to yourself!
