Medical Weight Loss
For a majority of Americans, losing weight is a frustrating and hard process that does not come easy. While most can admit that maintaining a proper weight is important for health and overall body function, getting to that point can be exhausting, especially if you suffer from conditions such as Weight Loss Resistance, Hypothyroidism, or other Thyroid disorders. Fortunately, these conditions can be treated through a combination of weight loss programs and hormone replacement therapies. At RevitaLifeMD, we specialize in safe and effective weight loss using screening tools, labs and EKGs. Our staff loves what they do, and we want to help you stay on track to achieve all of your weight loss goals.

Our weight loss program is comprehensive and addresses many factors you may face when dealing with losing weight. Our friendly staff takes the time to get to know you as an individual and designs a personalized plan to help you achieve your weight loss goals and maintain them. We will assess your nutritional habits and lifestyle so that we can recommend ways to improve performance. We work hard to provide a relaxed, judgment-free environment from start to finish. We also incorporate advanced screening tool, labs, and EKGs to ensure safety and identify key metabolism issues up front to make your weight loss experience faster and easier to maintain.
We incorporate a variety of weight loss methods including:
- Top of the line meal replacements
- Lipotropic injections
- Appetite suppressants
- Vitamin shots
- HCG diet
- Medications to support metabolism
During your weight loss program, we do advise weekly visits to ensure success, but a monthly option is available for those with busy schedules. Your long term success is our primary goal, so we offer affordable maintenance programs.
The HCG diet is a cutting-edge weight loss system that can help you shed weight quickly and safely. HCG, also known as Human Chorionic Honadotropin, is a hormone that is naturally produced during pregnancy that helps control metabolic functions. It helps to mobilize fat and use it as energy for both the mother and fetus. For weight loss purposes, HCG can be safely used by both men and women to help stabelize their metabolism. At RevitaLifeMD, we utilize HCG as a part of our medical weight loss program to help you achieve your weight loss goals in a safe and effective manner.
The HCG diet consists of taking the HCG hormone and observing a low-calorie diet for up to 40 days. Most people on diets are always hungry, which limits their ability to keep from eating. A diet of only 500 calories will induce weight loss in most people, but supplementing the diet with the HCG hormone helps keep the dieter from feeling hungry. HCG hormones interact directly with your metabolism, helping your body break down stored fat to be used as energy, keeping your body nourished, and preventing any suffering that comes with the side effects of hunger. HCG not only helps to curb hunger by targeting stored body fat for energy, but it also facilitates a sense of positive well-being and helps defend against feelings of depression and anxiety experienced by dieters on low-calorie diets.
Imbalances in vital body hormones, such as estrogen and progesterone, are usually to blame for weight loss resistance. In women, falling levels of estrogen during menopause cause the body to hold onto fat, and low levels of progesterone cause the body to retain water. In men, low testosterone can cause an increase in estrogen, which then leads to slowed metabolism and increased body fat. Both of these hormone imbalances can be treated with Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy and specialized weight loss programs.
This combination can also be used to treat hypothyroidism and other thyroid disorders. The thyroid hormone controls many important functions in the body, and an imbalance of this hormone may cause sudden weight gain, constipation, intolerance to cold, hair loss, irregular periods, cold limbs, and fatigue. Replacing the thyroid hormone with Bioidentical Hormones can help men and women to balance their thyroid gland, improve metabolic functions, lose weight, have more energy, and regulate their body temperature.
Some of our most successful patients were not necessarily obese, nor did they qualify for the controlled medications listed above. At the same time, we also view obesity as a long term, treatable medical condition. There is a medical weight loss program for everyone. We emphasize long term changes in body composition, building muscle mass, and burning fat. We have a strong focus on long term weight loss maintenance, and make it easy and affordable.
There are many benefits to weight loss, including:
