weight and obesity affect millions of Americans and increase the risk for
chronic disease. Decreasing excess weight can help prevent disease and enhance
quality of life.
Amethyst Wellness, in Palm Coast, has
partnered with Panhandle Weight Loss Center to provide comprehensive,
multi-disciplinary and individualized weight-loss plans.
Successful weight loss depends on four
pillars: diet, physical activity, emotional wellness and medical management.
Through the Panhandle Weight Loss Center, Amethyst Wellness offers an online
Rewire curriculum, a 12-week program that guides participants through proper
dietary changes, advice on physical activity
and behavior modification. Each week, participants learn a new lesson that focuses
on one or more of these pillars.
Amethyst Wellness also offers medical
management. The goal of medical management is to help individuals achieve
weight loss of 5 percent at 12 weeks. While prescription weight loss can be
very effective, the other factors must be addressed to allow for goal
achievement and maintenance of weight loss.
In the new year, many people are
motivated to institute lifestyle changes to lose weight and get healthy. While
healthy lifestyle impacts many health parameters, when it comes to weight loss,
only 1 percent of clients will achieve sustainable weight loss with lifestyle
Many clients prefer a more natural
approach, rather than traditional medications. Amethyst Wellness offers
peptides, which are amino acids that instruct the body to perform certain
tasks. Some peptide regimens can assist with weight loss by increasing the
body’s secretion of growth hormone, which aids in the burning of fat and
increased muscle growth.
Another more natural option is the
lipo-shot, or MIC shot. Lipo-shots contain vitamins B12 and B complex, and the
amino acids methionine, inositol and choline. This combination of ingredients
is fat burning in nature and increases energy.
Other services complementary to weight
loss that Amethyst Wellness offers include: bioidentical hormone optimization,
extensive micronutrient testing, and hypnotherapy.
Hormone optimization with bioidentical
testosterone can assist in weight reduction by increasing energy and lean
muscle, which in turn, increases metabolism. Thyroid hormone optimization also
has a direct impact on metabolism.
When on a calorie-restricted diet, many
individuals can develop imbalances of micronutrients. The extensive
micronutrient test by Genova labs allows one’s practitioner to identify
micronutrient deficits and recommend an individualized supplement plan.
Intravenous (IV) nutrition delivers micronutrients directly into the blood
stream. Certain formulas may assist with increased energy and metabolism. The
infusions also may help provide nutrients when on a calorie-restricted diet.
hypnosis can assist with weight loss efforts by reprogramming thinking patterns to allow individuals to achieve success in
At Amethyst Wellness, practitioners are
trained in healthy, safe and effective weight-loss strategies.
