Obesity is a global epidemic. The percentage of people who are obese, both in the United States and abroad is growing at alarming rates. Obesity doesn't just take into consideration how we look in the mirror, or how we look in our jeans, but rather our overall state, (physical, mental and social). Obesity leads to many different medical complications such as diabetes, coronary artery disease, hyperlipidemia, hypertension and musculoskeletal issues.
At Oasis Integrative Medicine, we successfully treat obesity by running the proper blood work, looking at adrenal status, food allergies, toxins, hormones, DNA markers for metabolism, detoxification and many other important biological markers. Dr. Dave uses an initial detoxification 2 week program, followed by a customized weight loss program tailored to the individual's needs, social constraints, taste preferences, and overall lifestyle considerations. In addition to lifestyle and dietary guidelines, nutraceuticals, pharmaceuticals, HCG injections, MIC B 12 injections and other fat burning protocols are used. Weight loss is treated with the same level of care as any other medical condition. Patients not only lose weight, but look and feel better, live more vital lifestyles and are able to keep the weight off by following the proper maintenance guidelines
The metabolic complications that create weight gain and obesity are complex, and cannot be treated with fad diets or pills sold on the Internet. The amount of american adults with metabolic disorders, continues to go up, as our food source is diminishing in quality and nutrients.
