Medical Weight Loss Q & A

How can losing weight improve my health?

Overweight and obesity are risk factors for many common health conditions, including heart disease, diabetes, and sleep apnea. Getting to and maintaining a healthy weight may reduce your risk of developing a chronic health condition. 

Losing weight also offers many other health benefits, such as:

  • Lowering blood pressure, blood sugar, and cholesterol
  • Reducing stress on your joints
  • Improving your sleep
  • Boosting self-confidence and self-esteem

You may also experience an improvement in energy, mobility, and your mood.

Focused on preventive care, Mrs. Moncada offers a medical weight loss program so you can lose weight, improve your health and wellness, and reduce your risk of developing weight-related health conditions. 

How can a medical weight-loss plan help me?

Despite what many commercial diet plans may have you believe, losing weight isn’t easy. And it’s even harder when you don’t have the right tools and support you need to succeed. 

With her medical weight-loss plan, Mrs. Moncada provides you with the support, knowledge, and plans that can help you reach your weight goals. 

Her program includes prescribed medication and lipotropic fat-burning supplements that provide the additional help needed to improve your chances of success. She also provides ongoing support and supervision throughout your entire weight-loss journey.

Mrs. Moncada offers food sensitivity analysis to determine if your food choices are contributing to your weight and health issues. 

What can I expect during the medical weight-loss program?

The medical weight-loss program at Copper Valley Integrative Medicine is a comprehensive plan that utilizes the HCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) diet. 

This weight-loss plan includes a structured diet and daily HCG hormone injections to increase your metabolism and control hunger. 

Mrs. Moncada provides the training you need so you can give yourself the daily HCG injections at home. She also provides you with a list of approved foods, recipes, and a food journal to help you stay on track.

After your initial evaluation, Mrs. Moncada has you return to the office weekly to:

  • Pick up your 7-day supply of HCG injections
  • Receive your weekly vitamin/lipotropic injection
  • Check your weight
  • Review your overall health

She also spends time going over your questions and concerns in detail and helps you navigate through the challenges you may face as you lose the weight.
