Weight Management

At Focused Women’s Healthcare we believe medicine is trending from a “downstream” model which involved curing problems and treating chronic disease to an “upstream” approach that focuses on disease prevention and health restoration through lifestyle modification.

We want to empower our patients to look, live, and feel their best in addition to preventing chronic disease.  Focused Women’s Healthcare has many offerings to assist with weight management including nutritional counseling, exercise programs, supporting supplements, and effective diets.  We begin with a consultation to create your individualized strategy to achieve sustainable results.

FWH’s individualized wellness programs will develop a customized training plan to help you target symptoms and address specific needs.

In addition to healthy eating plans, work-out options, and lifestyle modifications, Focused Women’s Healthcare provides a variety of program options to suit your needs.  Call for a consultation with Lori Beaver, our Certified Nutrition and Wellness Consultant (AFPA certified) to see what program is best for you.  Some of our most popular options include Phentermine + 7 Keto DHEA and the HCG Diet.  All programs come with support in the form of written nutrition plans and frequent check-ins with our nutrition specialist.

FWH is working with GPS Pharmacy to bring you an amazing weight-loss product.  We are combining Phentermine with 7 Keto DHEA in tablet form along with prescribed lifestyle changes to help you control and manage your desired weight-loss.

What are Phentermine and 7 Keto DHEA?

Phentermine is an appetite suppressant that works in the brain.  It is prescribed for short-term weight loss therapy and should be advised for those with chronic weight management issues.  It is meant to be used in conjunction with a lifestyle therapy regimen that involves reduced calorie intake and increased physical activity.  Phentermine is a controlled substance and will be prescribed for short term use, typically between 2-3 months.

7 Keto DHEA is a by-product of dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) which is a natural chemical formed in the body.  7 Keto DHEA speeds up metabolism and thermogenesis (heat production) to promote weight loss.  It also improves lean body mass and helps build muscle, increases the activity of the thyroid gland, boosts the immune system, enhances memory, and slows aging.  It serves as a great complement to the traditional weight-loss therapy of phentermine only.

HCG Diet

The hCG diet originated decades ago and has gotten a great deal of attention over the last several years.

Dr. A.T.W Simeons published a study in the 1950s that claimed patients using hCG and a restricted calorie diet lost an incredible amount of weight quickly.

HCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin) is a hormone of the female reproductive system and increases in pregnancy.  While it is not FDA approved for weight loss it is legal with a doctor’s prescription and has been used effectively across the country.  The hCG diet injections allow the body to distribute its effect on fat cells rather than lean muscle.  This causes the body to take energy from excess fat stores, enabling weight loss while on a calorie restricted diet.

Focused Women’s Healthcare is prepared to educate you on the hCG diet and help you determine if it is a good choice to help you jump start your weight loss program.  Our main goal is lifestyle modification that will lead to sustainable weight loss and a healthier you.
