Natural Weight Management and Support
Eating a nutrient rich diet and getting enough sleep are just two of the many critical components of weight management that are addressed in a holistic approach to weight support. We help you understand your body and find natural solutions to your health.
Our Holistic Approach
For decades now, weight loss has essentially been viewed as the product of two components: limiting your calories and increasing your exercise levels. In fact, for many years there was a belief about weight loss that the key was simply to ingest less calories than you burn throughout the day.
Now we understand that weight management is a complicated issue that has as much to do with stress levels or emotional well-being as it does how many calories or even the types of food you consume. Conversely, however, your stress levels and emotional well-being actually have a profound impact on the foods you crave or the type of diet you are capable of maintaining.
For instance, studies show that not only do we get hungrier when we are tired , but we are also more likely to make poor food choices. A holistic approach to weight support looks at all of the factors that affect weight management, such as how much sleep you get or how much stress you are under in your life.
It is also hard to get any exercise when you are tired all the time. Being tired all the time is not always simply the result of not getting enough sleep. In many cases, even when people set aside enough time for sleep, it doesn’t mean the sleep they are getting is actually restful. In other cases, people can’t sleep at all. The irony is that sometimes, an inability to sleep at night is the result of a poor diet. A holistic approach to weight support works from both sides. It can help you develop a diet that can actually help you get better, more restful sleep and getting better, more restful sleep can in turn help you maintain a healthier diet.
I’ve been going to Dr. V for about 6 months. She told me how she could help me lose weight and get healthier than I was already. And, here I am, 20 pounds lighter…feeling much more positive, energetic, and less stressed.
From my first visit with Dr. V I knew that I wanted and needed her in my life. Within a few short weeks of working with her I was already noticing a difference in how I was feeling. I feel so lucky that our paths have crossed and I look forward to continuing my health journey with her.
I’ve regained my energy and focus, while seeing noticeable improvements. It’s amazing how much little repeatable choices can impact your health and Dr. V and her team have been a catalyst in helping me to achieve real & continued progress.
I was happier every time I visited because of how much better I was feeling. As time went on I only had to see her every month, and now I only see her as needed. She has helped me get through the biggest struggle of my life and she is the most caring and attentive person I know.
We Take a Closer Look at Your Diet
A good diet is not just one that fits within a certain calorie range, either. A healthy diet for weight support needs to also include a number of critical nutrients that are often lacking in many “diet” foods. Food allergies and other sensitivities can also have a significant effect on your attempts to lose or maintain a certain weight.
Many individuals who have spent years yo-yo dieting or jumping from the latest fad diet to fad diet are actually severely lacking in a number of critical nutrients. When you eat a diet filled with foods lacking in critical nutrients, they will often make you more hungry rather than satiating your hunger.
