Weight Loss Programs
First, we want to emphasize that the old adage of “calories in equals calories out” is outdated and does not integrate the latest research in the field of weight loss. The solution to the massive obesity problem that we are facing in adults and children does not simply conform to just eating less and exercising more. That simply does not work for many people who have hormone imbalance, adrenal stress, hypothyroidism, PCOS, insulin resistance, a high toxic burden, and nutritional deficiencies. At OC Whole Family Wellness, we have a more holistic approach to identify the underlying causes of the inability to successfully and healthfully lose the desired weight.
We begin by testing for undiscovered health problems that may have made it difficult for you to lose weight in the past. Your complete blood workup will include a full hormone panel and a myriad of functional tests that help to customize your weight loss solution. We often employ a detoxification program as a jump start to your weight loss as it is well documented that fat cells are the primary storage site for toxins. Therefore, the more fat cells that we have, the more places to store the daily toxins that we encounter. Unfortunately, once the toxins inhabit our fat, this makes it difficult to remove them with regular exercise and calorie restriction. After they have been adequately detoxified, they can be eliminated with the recommended diet that is provided.
