Weight Loss FAQs

At Vitality Health & Wellness, our team is committed to helping you not only achieve your goal weight, but also getting healthy for life. Below, our wellness team has answered the most frequently asked questions about our proven approach to long-term weight loss.

#1: What is medical weight loss?

Today’s sedentary lifestyle and poor eating habits have destroyed the body’s natural ability to regulate weight. Unfortunately, many lose weight quick programs only make these problems worse by starving the body and depriving it of vital nutrients. Medical weight loss is different; our program is dedicated to long-term solutions rather than overnight results that disappear once patients stop “dieting.” Our medical weight loss program is research-based, patient-proven approach to weight loss. Rather than “starving” the body for quick results, we help patients make long-term lifestyle changes that will keep the weight off for years to come.

#2: Why is your medical weight loss program so effective?

Our program is effective because it's medically sound, and a personalized plan is developed for each patient's specific needs.

Controlling hunger is a key factor in weight loss. Together, the pituitary and hypothalamus glands are responsible for that job. The doctors and clinical staff at Vitality use scientifically-based approaches to “reset” the body’s natural ability to control hunger. The use of supplements including herbal formulas, Vitamin B-12 injections and nervous system stimulators helps to immediately reduce cravings and enables the body to begin losing weight at an encouraging rate.

When combined with a personalized diet program, hormone supplementation, cold laser treatments and acupuncture therapy, our medical weight loss program can result in the release of 3500 calories each day—that’s the number of calories in one pound.

#3: Can supplements help me lose weight?

Yes, medical research shows that certain dietary supplements can have a big impact on long-term weight loss. Our advanced, medically-sound supplements include HCG, HGH, antler extract, Lipotropic, Vitamin B-12 injections and herbal formulas. These supplements are specifically chosen to kick-start the body’s metabolism for long-term, sustained weight loss. They help hit the “reset” button and transition the body to a healthier lifestyle.

#4: I’ve seen other HCG programs on the Internet; how is your program different?

While there are many HCG programs offered online, our medical weight loss center combines the benefits of HCG supplements with the resources and expertise of professional medical specialists. All of our patients are evaluated by medical specialists and carefully monitored during the program. Our wellness center provides a supportive, safe environment for weight loss.

#5: What kind of prescription drugs will I have to take?

No prescription medications are needed. Our Milwaukee medical weight loss team can help you lose weight and keep it off without the use of starvation diets, invasive surgeries or prescription drugs. The use of herbal, vitamin and hormone supplements are effective without the need for other medications.

#6: Do you offer acupuncture or cold laser therapy for weight loss?

We offer both treatments as part of our commitment to help patients lose weight and reset their metabolisms. Acupuncture and cold laser treatments reboot the brain and trigger the hypothalamus to burn 3000-3500 calories – up to a pound per day – from the fat banks located in the belly, thighs and buttocks.

#7: I’m unable to perform strenuous exercise. Will this program still work for me?

Our medical weight loss program doesn’t require strenuous exercise for success. Physical activity is an important component of long-term weight management. We encourage patients to start slowly with exercise and gradually increase the types and levels of intensity of their activity. Losing weight helps reduce many of the aches, pains and other obstacles to regular exercise.

#8: Do I have to be extremely overweight or suffering from specific health problems to qualify for your medical weight loss program?

No. The Vitality Health medical weight loss program is designed for everyone who needs to lose weight or maintain weight loss. There is no specific number of pounds you must need to lose in order to benefit from our program.

#9: Besides looking better, what are the benefits of weight loss with Vitality Health and Wellness Center?

First, you’ll work closely with our trained medical staff for whom your health is the number-one priority. We will take the time to educate you on all the components of our medical weight loss program and answer any questions.
