Medical Weight Loss | Santa Fe
Weight loss. Wow, are there any more stressful words in the English language? (Do you want to jump to our adrenal stress page first?) Don’t we all need to lose a few pounds … or twenty? At Live Well Functional Medicine in Santa Fe, NM have been working with weight loss patients for over 10 years and have developed a successful strategy of lifestyle modification, along with appetite suppressants, to help you jump-start your weight loss. We know that weight loss is confusing and that there are so many weight-loss programs and differing opinions regarding optimal weight loss approaches and we will help you find the right one for you!
Why do you want to lose weight? For most patients, the answer is to feel better and have more energy. Another reason is improving or avoiding health issues such as heart disease, diabetes, and hypertension. We all want to be healthy and energized to attain our personal life goals.
Our Functional Medicine Program is a deeper dive into the reasons you may not be able to lose weight easily. Adrenal dysfunction due to stress with elevated cortisol leads to blood sugar imbalance, inflammation, leaky gut, and thyroid issues that impair carbohydrate and fat metabolism and impact your ability to maintain a healthy weight. And, as you work through your weight loss program, if you have ongoing difficulty losing weight, we will discuss testing options to evaluate adrenal and gastrointestinal dysfunction that may be hindering your weight loss efforts.
If you would like to finally lose weight – and keep it off – in order to look better, restore health, increase energy, enhance intimacy, and improve your quality of life, schedule a consultation with medical weight loss specialist Nurse Practitioner Rebecca Fredman at Live Well Functional Medicine in Santa Fe, NM today.
