Medical Weight Loss Management

Gaining health to lose weight.

Weight Loss is a Function of Good Health

The inability to achieve weight loss is a symptom of an underlying health issue. Conscious Medicine helps our patients find and address the root cause so they can get healthy in order to lose weight.

All too often, the underlying conditions preventing weight loss are ignored in favor of scapegoating genetics or wayward hormones. A large number of Americans struggle to lose weight while eating what they think are “healthy foods” and fail fad diets that don’t address the root cause. With this in mind it’s quite reasonable for people to conclude there is just something “unfixable” and wrong with them when it comes to losing weight.

Truthfully genetics plays a minor role in weight loss. The hormonal imbalances that prevent weight loss are actually just symptoms of underlying dysfunctions that can be tackled through natural means, as they are caused by eating food or consuming medicine incompatible with human body chemistry. Take, for example, how our medical weight loss program has helped women reverse the symptoms of the hormonal disorder PCOS entirely while helping them achieve weight loss. 

Medical weight loss is the safest path for a person to lose weight, whether it’s only a few pounds or over 100. We can work with you to design a diet and fitness regimen that will be the key to your weight loss. We’ll monitor your health and your progress so that we can take proactive and responsive steps to stay on track of your tailored regimen. Included in our program is an educational component. This way, you’ll build up your own empowerment toward developing lifestyle habits that promote the life you want. 

Together we will give you all the comprehensive information and options you need to make an informed decision on whether medical weight loss is right for you.

Strengthening systems with natural treatments and nutrients

Conscious Medicine believes that your biochemical make-up is unique to you as an individual and that testing and correcting for nutrient deficiencies can provide critical information that can help you deeply understand your own body.

Functional nutrition gets at the heart of your health, whatever the signs, symptoms, or diagnosis. A functional approach to nutrition creates individualized diet and lifestyle plans. It does so by looking at the functions of biological systems in the body and the ways they interact with each other in their internal environment and how these systems might interact with their external environment.

Functional nutrition leverages the power of food to restore health, energy, and the body’s own capacity to heal itself.

Every person is biochemically unique. We all have different nutritional needs based on hereditary factors, environmental factors, diets, lifestyle choices, and even phases of life. To find out what your individual needs are, getting your nutrient levels tested is critical.
Extensive clinical lab testing allows us to look at your internal environment and which systems are imbalanced, giving us access to objective data that will help us develop an individualized nutritional plan.

Prolon – A fasting mimicking diet

Based upon two decades of research sponsored by the National Institutes of Health and the National Institute of Aging, a division of the NIH, as well as research and clinical trials at the University of Southern California, Conscious Medicine for Humanity offers ProLon, a meal program that mimics fasting.

This fasting-mimicking meal program has proven to be effective in addressing key health factors involved in improving the aging process.

ProLon is a fasting-mimicking and enhancing diet that manages to be low calorie, low protein, low carbohydrate, and high nourishment. ProLon provides you with a combination of foods and ingredients able to reprogram the body into a mode of cellular regeneration and rejuvenation, resetting the body’s natural ability to handle stress. Results include reduced body weight and abdominal fat while preserving lean body mass. Additional results include healthy glucose levels, blood pressure, cholesterol, and triglycerides.

More importantly, people report a remarkable improvement in energy levels, healthier looking skin, and empowerment in creating healthier eating habits.

ProLon is a plant-based 5-day meal program based on clinical studies and a proprietary combination of ingredients. Meals consist of scientifically formulated, highly nourishing soups, bars, snacks, teas, drinks, and supplements that are either ready to eat or easy to prepare. These proprietary preparations are designed to mimic and enhance the effects of fasting while minimizing its inconvenience and potential adverse effects. The meal program provides about 1150 calories on day 1 and about 800 calories on days 2-5.

Only 5 days per month make it a practical meal program and easy to follow. Day-by-day packaging makes it convenient. A great tasting variety of delicious flavors keeps you motivated and satisfied throughout the program.

To implement the program effectively, a nutritional coach will walk you through the program when you are ready to commit to your fasting journey.

The proof is in our patients.
