Hormone Therapy & Weight Loss
What Do They Do?
As men and women age, our bodies change dramatically. Decreased hormone production can lead to a variety of issues that can have a drastic effect on your health and quality of life. For women, particularly, these hormonal imbalances intensify as they pass through the stages of menopause. As well as unwelcome effects of andropause in men, including muscle loss, fatigue and erectile dysfunction, bioidentical hormones have proven effective.
Every person is different, though: Some many show few signs, while others may feel like a walking time bomb.
A popular form of hormone replacement therapy (HRT), bio-identical hormone treatments provide a synthetic hormone that is chemically identical to the hormones your body produces naturally. They can help anyone—man or woman—suffering from a hormone imbalance, without the side effects of synthetic hormones.
For women, HRT treatments can provide much-needed relief after a hysterectomy or during the menopausal transition.
What Can I Expect?
Using bio-identical HRT helps bring your body back into balance and reduces the discomfort that accompanies many of the symptoms. They typically carry the same results as natural hormones introduced into the body.
Bio-identical hormones may not work the same for everyone, however, so Dr. Falguni Patel recommends trying them on a short-term basis to see how well you do while taking them.
Over time, bio-identical hormone therapy optimizes your hormonal levels, helping you to feel younger and happier, regain energy and muscle strength, improve your ability to lose weight, increase your mental clarity and quality of life, and prevent age-related illnesses.
What Is It?
Many factors—hormones, environmental conditions, and genetics—can affect one’s weight. So, while “eat right and exercise” may be great advice for many, it also ignores the reality for others.
To properly control and maintain your ideal weight, working with a weight-loss professional can make all the difference. The Rejuvenate Center for Medical Aesthetics and Wellness offers a medically-guided, human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) diet which involves daily hormone injections and a strict 800 calorie diet.
HCG is a hormone produced during early pregnancy that stimulates the production of other essential pregnancy hormones. HCG is most often used to treat fertility issues in both men and women, but in conjunction with a special diet, it also boosts metabolism and helps you lose fat without feeling hungry.
What Can I Expect?
The HCG Diet is a medical weight loss program—supervised by Dr. Falguni Patel—that combines hormone therapy with whole food eating. The diet menu is heavy on vegetables and lean proteins, plus fruits and certain grains.
The diet is focused on weight loss, but also teaches healthy eating and portion control to build a sensible relationship with the food you consume.
Dr. Falguni Patel will develop a specific plan in consultation with you, and then guide you through the multi-phase diet protocol to help you not only lose the weight, but also keep it off.
What Do they Do?
If you’ve tried to lose weight, but diet and exercise alone aren’t working, then it might not be your diet or exercise regimen. Many people who are deficient in essential vitamins and nutrients simply can’t lose weight because their body is not functioning properly.
The Lipo-B injection is a combination of methionine, inositol, choline, and vitamin B12 that enhances liver function and optimizes your body’s ability to burn fat.
What Can I Expect?
To help maximize the impacts of a healthy diet and exercise routine, Dr. Falguni Patel administers weekly Lipo-B injections for a period of 8–12 weeks (depending on the patient).
As the treatments progress, you can expect to see not only weight loss results, but also lower cholesterol levels, better liver health, balanced hormone levels, boosted immune system, increased energy, and improved overall health.
