Weight Loss and Functional Medicine
If you're working to lose weight, it's likely that you've already had a conversation with your doctor about increasing your physical activity and decreasing your overall calories. While these behaviors create progress for some people, it's not a one size fits all solution for long lasting weight loss. At Revitalize Health, we understand that there are a variety of factors at work when it comes to achieving and maintaining a healthy body weight.
Currently, nearly 40% of people in the United States are obese, which suggests that there is more to weight loss than what conventional medicine and advice has to offer. While aesthetics are a concern for many, the health concerns for obese individuals are myriad. From diabetes to heart problems, obesity causes a number of conditions that can result in severe health issues, and even death.
Functional medicine doctors work to discover the underlying causes that contribute to a person's state of being overweight. Rather than focusing on calorie reduction, we work with you to ensure that the majority of your diet comes from whole, unprocessed foods, which give you the energy to stay active throughout the day. We look at your current eating habits to see if you are eating foods that could be creating inflammation in your body, which can contribute to weight gain and cause an overall decline in wellbeing. We also work with you to manage the other areas of your life that contribute to weight loss, such as sleep hygiene, stress management, and prioritizing healthy activities. We understand that the behaviors that kick start your weight loss may not be the same behaviors that help you sustain your weight loss. We work to change your individualized weight loss plan as you make progress toward your goal so that you don't hit a frustrating plateau. We'll be with you every step of the way as you work toward an ideal, healthy weight for your body type.
