Weight Loss Q & A

When might I need weight loss help?

You might need weight loss help if you’re personally unhappy with your weight or if your weight is a health risk.

Gradual weight gain 

Weight tends to creep on, often over many months and years, so it’s sometimes surprising to look at the scale and see that you’ve gained a significant amount of weight. The weight loss program can find the reasons for your weight gain and provide an evidence-based holistic plan to lose your extra weight and stay healthy going forward.

Health threats

Many patients discover they’re not at a healthy weight during wellness physicals. Excess weight increases your risk of type 2 diabetes, heart disease, some cancers, and many other serious conditions. A weight loss program is an essential part of preventive medicine because it can get you on the right track for optimal overall wellness.

What can I expect in the weight loss program?

Tulsi Wellness Club is unique in everything they do, from an innovative approach to primary care to holistic disease treatments. Weight loss is no exception: The team focuses on finding the factors that led to your weight gain through a detailed medical history, functional medicine testing, and a complete lifestyle review.

Uncovering those factors helps the team create a highly personalized weight loss program that fits into your daily life. Some common factors influencing weight include thyroid dysfunction, low testosterone, and menopause, but in most cases, several factors are involved. 

Your personalized weight loss program focuses on giving your body the nutrients it needs through both diet and supplements. Your eating plan focuses on sustainable changes and learning a new approach to weight maintenance and health in general. 

You might also benefit from supplemental treatments like semaglutide therapy, which is FDA-approved injectable weight loss medication, B12 injections, which increase your metabolism, or NAD+ intravenous (IV) infusions, which restore NAD levels and, in turn, help you burn fat and metabolize food faster. Hormone replacement therapy is another treatment that can make weight loss much easier. 

How can weight loss improve my health?

Losing as little as 10 pounds can improve your whole-body health in many ways, including: 

  • Lower blood sugar
  • Lower blood pressure
  • Lower cholesterol
  • Better heart health
  • Better sleep
  • Less gastrointestinal issues
  • More energy

Alongside the medical benefits, many people feel more self-confident, more motivated, and more productive when they lose weight. 

Join our weight loss program that includes weekly semaglutide and vitamin B12 injections.  An early study of 2,000 obese adults compared people using semaglutide plus a diet and exercise program with people who made the same lifestyle changes without semaglutide. After 68 weeks, half of the participants using semaglutide lost 15% of their body weight, and nearly a third lost 20%. Participants who incorporated only lifestyle changes lost about 2.4% of their weight.
