Conventional Weight Loss Treatment for Obesity & Overweight

Why Some Weight Loss Programs Fail

Natural Approaches for Permanent Weight Loss

Naturopathic medicine provides natural, safe, and effective options for a healthy diet and lifestyle which promotes permanent weight loss.

Change your Approach to Weight Loss

Identify and Address underlying causes.

Naturopathic physicians specialize in treatment of factors which inhibit weight loss including: specific dietary counseling, promoting proper digestion, restoring compromised liver function, promoting proper thyroid metabolism, identifying nutrient deficiencies, treating food allergies, treating insulin resistance, detoxification of heavy metals, and treatment of intestinal imbalances.

Dietary plan.

Never use a low calorie diet again. This is not a diet. Banish the word from your vocabulary. Replace it with “I choose to live a particular way that includes a moderate amount of good clean food, regular exercise, relaxation, fun, time for myself and caring for myself and others.”

Atkins Diet...Zone Diet…Low Fat Diet… They all share a common flaw: a "one size fits all" approach. Naturopathic physicians can work with you to determine the lifetime eating plan that is right for you which will promote overall health as well as permanent weight loss.

Consult your physician before starting any exercise program.

Stress Management.

If you have hormonal imbalances that are caused by chronic stress, stress management will help with weight loss.

It is often necessary to take a hard look at how one reacts to stress from mental/emotional issues in one’s life and how to resolve/manage/change these responses to be more healthy.


Difficulties losing weight are often related to deficiencies in nutrients which are necessary for proper metabolism. If fats can’t be broken down properly, weight loss is difficult or impossible.

Botanical (Herbal) Medicine

Botanical medicine may be used to promote weight loss in a variety of ways:

Supplement Quality Is Important

Nutritional and botanical supplements used in these treatments are intended to have a physiological effect and clinical benefit, i.e., they are effective and your health improves.

The quality of nutritional supplements in the general marketplace is suspect. In order to get the maximum benefit to your health, be sure you purchase the highest quality nutritional supplements.
