Weight loss is often a long list of attempts and failed diets. We want to help change that! Most people that start a weight loss program do not know how to lose the weight safely or effectively.

The first thing many people do is to try and starve themselves, which never works, or they try the latest fad diets. Some people join a gym, only find out there is too much sweat equity involved, and not as easy as it looks. It takes a lot of time to lose weight this way, and the less results people see, the less committed they are to the regimen.

Medical weight loss at Palmetto Physical Medicine operates on two fronts. First, we focus on identifying if there are any specific barriers to the patient losing weight (hypothyroid, gut imbalance, toxic load) and correcting those through diet and lifestyle.

Secondly, we will work toward changing the biochemistry of the body to convert it to a fat burning state. This is accomplished by providing the body with injections of weight loss nutrients, mobilizing fat stores using the lipo-laser, facilitating the drainage of toxins and excess fluid using the Hypervibe machine, and encouraging the body to build more fat burning cells through the use of resistance exercise.
