MEDICAL WEIGHT LOSS MANAGEMENT
Get Your Health Back on Track With Our Medical Weight Loss Management Program.
Let The Alchemy Clinic providers jumpstart your weight loss journey and help you successfully meet your weight loss goals.
You can achieve healthy and sustainable weight management with the right tools. The Alchemy Clinic offers these tools you need to lose weight – and keep it off for good. Our medically supervised programs are an ideal option for people who have not been able to lose weight and who may need to get at least one weight-related medical problem under control.
You may be a candidate for our medically supervised program if you:
- Have a BMI (body mass index) of 30 or more
- Have a BMI of 27 or more with more than one weight-related medical condition, such as diabetes, high blood pressure, or sleep apnea
- Have not been able to maintain weight loss on your own
We provide personalized support and promote positive change. We are committed to helping you achieve your goal weight — and are here to help you avoid setbacks and celebrate your success along the way.
At your first appointment, your Nurse Practitioner will discuss with you the following:
- Your medical history
- Your weight loss goals
- What your day-to-day routine looks like (diet and exercise)
- Your prior weight loss diets/programs and journey
At times it can be challenging to achieve your target weight through just dieting and exercise alone. But with our health and weight management clinicians, you can receive weight loss advice and get treatments that can effectively remove your excess pounds and help you reach your personal weight and fitness goals.
We offer safe and effective medical weight loss treatments that include:
- Semaglutide injections
- Naltrexone SR/Bupropion SR
- Peptides (coming soon)
WHAT IS SEMAGLUTIDE?
Semaglutide is a type of drug called a GLP-1 agonist. GLP-1 stands for glucagon-like peptide 1, a hormone produced in the intestine and pancreas that increases insulin secretion when glucose levels are low. This also makes muscles more sensitive to insulin so they can absorb glucose faster from the bloodstream.
Simply, a GLP-1 agonist is a type of diabetes medication that assists individuals with diabetes control their blood sugar levels by stimulating insulin production or making it easier for cells to absorb glucose from the bloodstream. Reducing how much food you eat and increasing how quickly your body uses fat for energy aids in weight loss.
Although Semaglutide was initially created for those with diabetes, it has been approved for weight loss in obese individuals.
Semaglutide is not the only option available. The providers at The Alchemy Clinic will review the different options and determine which one is the best and safest option for you.
Prescriptions used for medical weight loss work in different ways, from lowering your set point (the amount of weight you may lose before your body starts to fight back) to enhancing your metabolism and helping you curb cravings by feeling full longer. When these medications are paired with a customized supplement regimen, we can ensure that the body gets everything it needs to burn fat while protecting muscle.
Our goal is to help you find the best treatment to lose weight and keep it off in the long term.
Your Nurse Practitioner will talk with you to determine whether you’d benefit from treatments like:
- Simple diet and exercise
- Weight loss medications
- Referral more permanent treatments like bariatric or weight-loss surgery.
Your first appointment will last for about 60 minutes and your follow-up appointments will last for about 15 minutes.
When you leave your appointment, you will have the following:
- A medical treatment plan
- Orders for any lab tests (if needed)
- Access to our online portal
- Clinical support, if needed
