Nutritional Weight Loss Programs
The clinical nutritionists at Cascade Integrative Medicine offer cutting edge and individualized weight loss programs tailored to your specific needs. We focus on anti-inflammatory foods combined with the Mediterranean diet. Our weight loss plans take into account food sensitivities, if they exist, and food sensitivity testing can be performed, if it is appropriate. Our weight loss programs are not calorie-restrictive or “starve-yourself” plans. Rather, our weight loss plans emphasize natural, whole foods, herbs, teas and healthy, wholesome treats to help our patients sustainably shed the unwanted pounds. We strive to design easy weight loss programs that our patients are excited about. Recipes and resources are given to all of our weight loss clients. To help keep our patients on track, our weight loss programs include great accountability options with foods diaries, weigh-ins, measurements such as bioimpedance testing, and new recipes or strategies at each appointment. We also offer supplement and detoxification suggestions to help increase metabolism and energy while helping to balance stress hormones concurrently with weight loss. Finally, to support weight loss and post-weight loss maintenance, we help you find an exercise program that’s right for you.
Medically-Supervised Weight Loss Programs
Weight loss is difficult and can become even more challenging after having children or after hormones start changing. It is important to determine the cause of the weight gain, which may include hypothyroidism, nutrient deficiencies, hormone imbalances, or stress. Once the source of the weight gain is defined, our doctors give the body what it needs to shed the unwanted pounds.
At Cascade Integrative Medicine, we provide options for weight loss, and our doctors and nutritionists will work together to provide a weight loss plan that is achievable and effective. Weight loss plans may focus strictly on nutrition with meal planning, nutritional counseling, and biometric measurements to monitor weight loss progress. We also offer an hCG program for patients who have over 20 pounds to lose. This 42-day injection and nutrition cycle allows you to lose a pound a day safely and not have to deal with hunger or cravings. Moreover, medical supervision makes the hCG weight loss program safe and effective.
