Functional Medicine Weight Loss

Healthy & Sustainable Weight Loss Transformation

Do you suffer from Fatigue, Digestive Issues, or Brain Fog?

Do you experience Headaches, Allergies, Joint or Muscle Pain?

Excess weight can be associated with a number of symptoms that affect your daily life. When the root cause of your weight gain is determined, these issues can be reduced or eliminated. The goal of our weight loss program is to help you shed those excess pounds and begin feeling better.

Weight Management

Weight Management – The Functional Medicine Approach

From a Functional Medicine perspective, we look to find the root cause of weight gain. Some common reasons include:

Our team of professionals will do a complete medical history, genetic and other laboratory tests to check for any underlying medical conditions preventing you from losing weight. We will check for nutritional deficiencies, discuss your diet and lifestyle choices, issues that may be causing stress and any sleep issues you may be having. Additionally, metabolic testing may be recommended to help determine what changes are needed for weight loss.

If it is determined that you have a hormone imbalance, our integrative physician can help with rebalancing your hormones and with medically approved detoxification processes. Once your hormones are rebalanced, you will begin your journey to weight loss.

Why Is Losing Weight Challenging?

Weight loss can be a stubborn challenge for most people. Weight gain is often a result of poor diet, portion control or insufficient exercise. However, we cannot just exercise our way out of a poor diet. Weight gain can also be due to some underlying medical condition such as:


Hypothyroidism is when the thyroid gland does not produce enough thyroid hormone. Thyroid hormone helps the body  burn stored fat and speeds up your metabolism.

Hormone imbalances

Your hormones are controlled by a number of organs in the body, including your reproductive organs, your thyroid gland, your pituitary gland and your adrenal glands. When any of these organs do not function properly, a hormone imbalance can occur and lead to weight gain or difficulty losing weight.

Malabsorption of nutrients

When you are unable to absorb nutrients from your food, your body may crave foods to help make up for a nutrient  deficiency. Oftentimes, it will be a carbohydrate craving and you may always feel hungry.


Stress can cause the body to make too much cortisol, which can make you store fat around your midsection. Excess weight in your core can increase your risk of health problems.

Cushing’s syndrome

Cushing’s syndrome occurs when the adrenal glands make too much cortisol. With Cushing’s syndrome, you do not need to be under a lot of stress to have high cortisol levels. With this medical condition, fat is stored in the upper back, upper abdomen and face.

Polycystic ovary syndrome

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a hormone imbalance that causes weight gain, thinning hair, irregular periods, excess facial hair, acne and difficulty getting pregnant

Insulin resistance

Insulin resistance is when the body does not properly use insulin. This can lead to higher glucose levels and even type 2 diabetes.

Inadequate sleep

Many hormones are secreted during sleep. Staying up late can cause a hormone imbalance. Additionally, when you are tired, you tend to eat more. On average, staying up late can cause you to eat an average of 500 extra calories

Body Mass Index (BMI)

BMI is an abbreviation for Body Mass Index. Although BMI does not directly measure body fat, it can give a fairly accurate body fat measurement. Your BMI score can help your healthcare provider determine if your weight is a health risk.

Try our Body Mass Index (BMI) calculator to evaluate your weight category. BMI is correlated with various metabolic and disease outcome as these are more direct measures of body fatness.

Ideal BMI Ranges for Men and Women

BMI ranges are the same for both men and women. The BMI range does not change due to body type or age. Everyone over the age of 20 uses the same BMI range table. There are four separate weight ranges –

  • Underweight – BMI is below 18.5
  • Healthy or normal weight – BMI is between 18.5 and 24.9.
  • Overweight – BMI is between 25 and 29.9.
  • Obese – BMI is 30 or more.

Body mass index (BMI) is a person’s weight in kilograms divided by the square of height in meters. BMI is an inexpensive and easy screening method for weight category – underweight, healthy weight, overweight, and obesity. BMI does not measure body fat directly, but BMI is moderately correlated with more direct measures of body fat. Furthermore, BMI appears to be as strongly correlated with various metabolic and disease outcome as are these more direct measures of body fatness.

The above BMI Calculator is based on 2013 AHA/ACC/TOS Guideline for the Management of Overweight and Obesity in Adults

It is important to note that BMI is an estimate of how much body fatness an individual has. Different races, different sexes, and different age groups can have different amounts of body fat at the same BMI. For example, men tend to have less body fat than women do at the same BMI. Older people tend to have more body fat than those who are younger. Athletes have less fat than nonathletes do. Finally, certain races will have more body fat than other races.

Body Composition Testing-Weight Loss

Body Composition Testing with the In Body Analyzer

The InBody Scale is the latest in cutting edge technology for body composition analysis. The human body is composed of four main components: water, proteins, fats and minerals. The InBody Test provides a comprehensive view of body composition balance of these components.

Our InBody 570 uses BIA Technology (bioelectrical impedance analysis) and provides comprehensive muscle and fat diagnosis that are essential in monitoring health. The test results show segmental muscle and fat analysis that allows you to clearly understand the distribution and where you need to focus on muscle and fat development. Most forms of body composition testing are usually aimed at measuring a person’s fat tissue. This can be a very useful tool in guiding fat loss strategies. Some types of body composition testing also assess muscle mass.
