At Bentley Skincare & Wellness & Wellness in Springfield, MO, we know that sometimes losing weight is more complicated than “calories in, calories out.” Sometimes you need outside help: someone who can come alongside you and help create a treatment plan tailored to your needs and goals. That’s where we come in. We offer several different weight loss solutions that can help kickstart the weight loss process in a way that dietary changes and exercise often cannot.
Weight loss can be hard. Trying to make the right diet choices, reducing your calories, drinking enough water, and getting enough exercise can be exhausting, especially if you went from zero to 100, a.k.a., a sedentary lifestyle to a relatively active one. However, sometimes your body needs more than just reduced calories and more exercise to lose weight.
We offer different treatments, pharmaceuticals and peptides, medications, and dietary supplements to help patients like you who need that something extra to not only help you lose the necessary amount of weight but keep it off for good.
At Bentley Skincare & Wellness & Wellness, we’ve chosen to partner with Metagenics. This company has developed an entire product line of dietary supplements and products designed to not only promote health and wellness but also help you achieve your goal weight and live your healthiest lifestyle. This company has been paving the way with health and wellness supplements for over 30 years.
With everything from weight loss supplements to meal replacement powders, this line has something for everyone. These products can help you lose weight safely while nourishing your body and giving it everything it needs to thrive and run smoothly.
Prescription medications can make a difference in helping you lose weight because not only do they make the number on the scale drop, but they reduce your appetite. When you don’t have an appetite, you’ll naturally eat less. You won’t have that desire to eat all the time, nor will you experience cravings.
Reducing Your Appetite
Sometimes, when you start a diet, especially a restrictive one, all you think about is food. We can prescribe medications that help remove that temptation to eat by reducing your appetite, which will help make all of those off-limit foods seem less appealing. Weight loss medications can also help increase your metabolism so that it can run smoothly and effectively, help you burn fat, and lose weight quickly.
These medications are safe, but they aren’t a forever solution. They are designed for use during a very specific window of time during your weight loss journey so that you can reach your goals quickly yet safely.
Peptides can also help you reach your goal weight. If you are a good candidate for peptide therapy, we will prescribe the right peptides for your body. Most peptides activate growth hormones that will help increase your metabolism and help you burn fat, which will help you reach your goal weight.
When administered by a medical professional, peptides provide an effective and safe way to increase your metabolism and enhance your body’s ability to lose weight quickly.
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy
Many people who try to lose weight eat perfectly and exercise daily yet still can’t reach their goals. In some cases, hormone deficiencies are to blame. Both men and women can suffer from hormonal imbalances, which can lead to weight gain and the inability to build or maintain lean muscle mass. The combination of these two symptoms works against your weight loss goals. Sometimes all it takes is the right hormone supplementation for that stubborn weight to fall off.
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy can help you lose weight by balancing your hormones. We can use different methods to administer bioidentical hormones, and we can choose the right one based on your needs and your lifestyle. BHRT treatments are quick and effective, and you’ll begin to notice a difference in your symptoms and your weight within a few weeks to beginning treatment.
How Do I Know if I Have a Hormone Imbalance?
Weight gain is one of the many symptoms indicative of a hormone imbalance. Still, the best way to determine if a hormone deficiency is a primary reason why you can’t lose weight is through a diagnostic test.
We can perform a comprehensive blood panel to test your hormone levels, determine which hormones need adjustment, and then supplement them with bioidentical hormone therapy. We will also monitor your progress throughout the duration of your treatment to ensure that you are receiving the right amount of hormones at the right times so that you feel your best and can reach a healthy weight.
Diet and Exercise Changes
When you seek outside help from our medical professionals to help you initiate a weight loss treatment plan, you will see results. We will create a customized treatment plan that includes one or more of these treatments to help you lose weight. However, you must do your part to achieve the best results and reach your goals as quickly as possible.
Eating a healthy diet, drinking enough water, and making sure that you are getting some form of physical activity each day is the best way to enhance the results of these treatments and reach your goals that much sooner.
A Healthy Weight Is Within Your Reach
If you’ve been considering seeking outside help through a weight management plan but have been putting off taking that first step, we want to let you know that you can begin today. You don’t have to wait until next Monday, next month, or next year to take the steps to reach your goal weight. All it takes is an initial consultation to begin this process. We will choose the right treatments to help you reach your goal weight and maintain that healthy weight long-term.
