Weight Management for Your Overall Health

When your weight begins to interfere with your life and the activities you enjoy, it is hard to ignore. However, when a person seeks to lose weight and improve their health, it takes an average of eight tries before this goal is actually accomplished. Couple this with the fact that many of us gain weight due to stress eating, hormonal imbalance, thyroid issues, insulin resistance, deficiency of vitamins & minerals, and a lack of knowledge on what to do to lose and keep the weight off. It’s no wonder why many people feel like they need the support of a weight-loss expert.

However, this is not where we introduce the next fad diet or “lose weight fast” gimmick. It is impossible to address weight gain without examining hormonal, genetic, lifestyle, and other factors, which is where advanced functional medicine provides value.

At the Wisconsin Institute of Functional Medicine, we apply the latest in functional and cellular medicine to address the fundamentals behind your weight loss needs—as opposed to simply treating symptoms. It is our goal to identify why you are burdened by the extra weight and uncover the root cause, so we are able to guide you in losing the weight naturally and through effective and permanent means. We want you to regain your health and stay that way without unending pharmaceuticals or surgical operations, and we are committed to making this weight loss journey the last time you will ever have to lose weight.

Losing Weight for Medical Reasons and Its Benefits

We all know that maintaining a healthy weight is key to achieving optimal health. However, also know that you do not necessarily have to make dramatic drops in weight to truly improve your health and overall wellness. Some studies show that simply decreasing your weight by even 5-10% can significantly change your health and help you experience the following benefits:

  • Lowered blood pressure
  • Improved cholesterol levels
  • Decreased risk of heart disease, diabetes, and certain cancers
  • Enhanced mobility
  • Less joint pain, back pain, and other inflammation
  • Improvement in symptoms associated with sleep apnea, insomnia, and osteoarthritis
  • Better blood sugar levels

Now, in addition to the medical benefits you could experience by losing weight, know that your lifestyle also stands to improve by realizing:

  • An improved and more active social life
  • Enhanced confidence, body image, mood, and vitality
  • Improved sex life, more energy, and better sleep quality
  • Decreased stress, depression, and anxiety levels

These are some pretty significant reasons to pursue medical weight loss and help you achieve whole-body wellness. And that is what we are all about here at the Wisconsin Institute of Functional Medicine. We are not looking to treat a symptom; we want to help you look great, feel great, and attain the health and wellness goals that help you live your best life—today, tomorrow, and well into the future.
