Why is weight loss such an integral part of wellness? Listen to what the CDC (Centers
for Disease Control) have to say about weight;
- More than one third (35.7%) of the US adults are obese
- Obesity related conditions include heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes and
certain types of cancer, some of the leading causes of preventable death in the
That is the tip of the iceberg, over two-thirds of Americans are overweight.
Being overweight or obese has a tremendous impact on your body, including the joint
and back pain from carrying weight that these joints were not designed to carry,
not to mention stressing the heart and lungs trying to perfuse and oxygenate tissue
loads they were not meant to support. Mentally, this affects one’s quality
of life because one cannot do all the things one would like to do, either from breathlessness
and joint pain or from actual time lost to taking all kinds of medications and spent
in doctor’s offices and hospitals instead of with your loved ones. Often our
patients stop requiring some of their blood pressure medications or diabetic
medications just by losing ten pounds!
At your initial consultation you will receive a complete blood work up including
Complete Blood Count, Comprehensive Metabolic Panel, Cholesterol and Lipids Panel.
An electrocardiogram and blood pressure will be performed and you will be measured
for your body fat index, body mass index, and given a detailed health and medication
history and physical exam. Your lifestyle and nutrition will be assessed and
a diet and exercise program will be designed for you to follow with or without appetite
suppressants as per the doctor’s review and recommendations. You will
be given a one month supply of calcium pyruvate to help you metabolise fat, as well
as B12 injections twice a week to also help enhance your metabolism. You will
meet with Cindy weekly to assess your progress, troubleshoot and target particular
problems. We also assess hormone levels, such as thyroid function as
indicated by other findings.
Avanti also provides Trim products for regulation of metabolism and immune system
as well as a full line of shakes and meal bars to supplement your diet when
your schedule does not permit normal meals.
Don’t wait any longer, let Avanti help you stop missing out on the good things
