Just as no two people are alike, neither is a weight management program!  We will design an effective plan to meet your medical, physical, and lifestyle needs using one or more of the following:  
 
Detoxification - toxin excess can be a cause of weight gain. We are constantly being exposed to a wide variety of fat soluble toxins. The body stores these in our fat to get them out of circulation where they can damage our vital organs and disrupt our metabolism. By utilizing a detox program at the beginning of your weight loss journey (or even in the middle of it)you eliminate toxins so your body no longer needs the fat cells you have accumulated to store those toxins, thus facilitating weight loss.Ask about our 14 day cleanse program.

Contrave -is a prescription medicine that contains 2 medicines (naltrexone HCl and bupropion HCl) that may help some adults with a body mass index (BMI) of 30 kg/m
or greater (obese), or adults with a BMI of 27 kg/m or greater (overweight) with at least one weight-related medical problem such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or type 2 diabetes, lose weight and keep the weight off. It should be used with diet and exercise. While taking Contrave you canget free access to a personalized weight management support program called Scale Down.



HCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin) -A naturally produced human hormone that aides in the breakdown of unwanted body fat while protecting the body's good fat and muscle. It keeps metabolism elevated and unlocks fat stores. In combination with a specific low calorie meal plan and exercise, HCG has been shown to aid in weight loss without the usual hunger, cravings, weakness, or irritability. HCG has been used in European countries for over thirty years for weight loss and is thought to reset the hypothalamus. 
 
Saxenda - is a glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonist. GLP-1 is a physiological regulator of appetite and calorie intake, and the GLP-1 receptor is present in several areas of the brain involved in appetite regulation.  Saxenda is specifically indicated as an adjunct to a reduced-calorie diet and increased physical activity for chronic weight management in adult patients with an initial body mass index (BMI) of 30 kg/m2 or greater (obese), or 27 kg/m2 or greater (overweight) in the presence of at least one weight-related comorbid condition (e.g.,hypertension, type 2 diabetes mellitus, or dyslipidemia). Saxenda is supplied as a solution for subcutaneous administration that can be administered at any time of day, without regard to the timing of meals.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
BALANCE
Balance has an enduring, medically-proven track record of success in helping you reach the prime of your life. Based on the patented, clinically proven Bios Life formula, taking Balance correctly and consistently will help:
  • Curb hunger so you eat less and feel full longer
  • Promote optimal fat loss
  • Slow glucose absorption into the blood stream
  • Offset the carbohydrates you eat
  • Support healthy cholesterol and triglyceride levels
These benefits will empower you to live the prime life and reach your highest aspirations.

How It Works
Glucose is the primary source of energy for the body. As you eat, your body sees a sharp increase in glucose levels. To manage this influx of energy, your body must produce a significant amount of insulin. When it does so, your glucose levels are reduced relatively quickly, but your insulin levels stay high. This, unfortunately, eliminates the need for the body to tap into its fat reserves for energy.
When taken before a meal, Balance combats this issue by providing a more mild release of both glucose and insulin into your system. Then, as those levels reduce, your body can finally use its fats cells for energy—burning away those fat reserves.


"Buck Shot"
3 in 1 injection containing Vitamin B-12, B-Complex, L-Carnitine and Lipoden.
 
Vitamin B12 - Known as the "energy vitamin" it speeds metabolism, suppresses appetite, and fights depression and stress which are often associated with weight gain.
 
L-Carnitine - is a naturally occurring substance found in the human body which is essential for energy production and fat metabolism. Deficiencies can increase the risk of muscle weakness, mental confusion, weight gain. L-Carnitine burns fat rapidly and provides that fat as a source of energy.
 
Lipotropics - are compounds of amino acids that enhance the removal of fat by acting on fat metabolism. It helps to decrease fat storage in the liver. Low levels of amino acids predispose people to be overweight by causing fewer calories to be burned and more fat to be stored.

 Testimonials
 
"I started the weight loss program at the end of March 2009 and after losing 74 pounds I am a new woman!!!! Thanks to all the great staff!!!! If I can do this.....
EVERYONE CAN!!!!!"  Amy R. - Katy, TX
 
"I came to Wellness Associates of Katy due to high blood pressure and because I had gestational diabetes.  I started their weight loss program on April 27, 2009. After 1 week of  following their program, my blood pressure dropped to within the normal range without blood pressure medication. Also after the first week, I had so much energy! I hadn't felt that good in years!  After a couple of months, they did a diabetes screening for me and I fell in the 2% range of becoming diabetic. In a little less than 5 months following their program, I lost 46 pounds and 12 inches off my waist. I went from a 16/18 (X Large) to a 4/6 (Small). I went on  maintenance in mid-September and have been able to maintain my target weight. The other benefit of going to Wellness Associates of Katy is the wonderful staff that works there. You are so much more than a patient, you feel like you're with friends and family! I would like to thank each and every one of them for helping me to change my life for the better!"   Renee K - Katy, TX
