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 whole, anti-inflammatory foods. Our weight loss plans take into account food sensitivities, if they exist, and food sensitivity testing can be performed with our naturopathic doctors, if it is appropriate. Our weight loss programs are not your typical “starve-yourself” diet 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 weight loss programs that our patients are excited about and can stick to for the long term. Recipes and resources are given to all of our weight loss clients.
To help keep our patients on track, our nutritionists offer accountability through review of food logs, taking weigh-ins (if desired) and offering nutritional counseling and habit-building at each appointment. As weight loss can increase the toxic burden on the liver, we also offer food, supplement and other detoxification-promoting suggestions to help support the liver, increase metabolism and energy while losing weight. Recognizing the impact that stress hormones and imbalances in sleep rhythms have on the ability to lose weight, we work holistically with you to help optimize your lifestyle to promote weight loss. Finally, to support healthy metabolism and post-weight loss maintenance, we help you create a movement plan 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.
