At Professional Aesthetics and Wellness Center our goal is to help you lose weight quickly and safely, and keep it off permanently. All weight loss clients receive a detailed Body Composition Profile that outlines Body Mass Index (BMI), Fat Percentage and potential risk for various disease states, including cancer, which is thoroughly discussed during an intensive consultation with our medical professional.
Depending on your medical history, degree of fitness, motivation level and financial preferences; we will help you choose the diet program that is right for you. Each weight loss program is individualized based on your needs and requirements, and includes personal counseling in order to help you achieve on-going success.
The Modified HCG Diet: A Physician-Monitored HCG Diet
HCG is an acronym for Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG) hormone present in both men and women, but which is produced in great amounts in pregnant females. During pregnancy, the substance almost completely controls the woman’s metabolic functions. In the non-pregnant state, research suggests that HCG similarly increases the metabolism similar to a pregnant female. Thousands of calories in stored fat are released and are used by the body or expelled. It can also aid in suppressing appetite for many people. Simply put, what makes the Modified HCG Diet work is the use of the prescription medication HCG which helps control hunger, allowing you to stay on the low calorie Modified HCG diet. The HCG is administered by injection weekly to help you lose weight.
Lipo-B is an injection of vitamins, minerals and amino acids that are essential for your overall well-being and for the health of your liver. Your liver is the organ responsible for removing fat and toxins from your body, so if it is healthier it will work better for you. Lipotropic nutrients are a class of agents that play an important role in the body’s use of fat. They enhance the liver and gallbladder’s role by decreasing fat deposits and by speeding up the metabolism and removal of fats. Through a combination of Lipo-B injections, a nutritious diet program, support and physical monitoring we will guide you to safely reach your weight loss goals, faster and help make it easier to maintain. We recommend bi-weekly injections to help you lose weight.
Appetite Suppressant Diet:
Need help with your hunger and cravings? We prescribe FDA approved appetite suppressants that promote weight loss by tricking the body into believing that it is not hungry or that it is full. Your appetite is decreased by increasing serotonin or catecholamine, two brain chemicals that affect mood and appetite. Combined with a nutritious diet that you will be given to follow, you will lose weight, feel better about your appearance and be on the way to better health!
Whether you are losing weight for cosmetic reasons or serious health concerns, support, guidance and realistic expectations are necessary to keep weight off long-term.
The first step toward a leaner, healthier body is a commitment to a comprehensive program tailored to your personal needs.
“While I was a bit disappointed in myself for the lack of physical health that I was in, Dr. Dittrich absolutely amazed me with the amount of information that was explained during the Medical Weight Loss consultation. Not only was the doctor 110% mindful of the fact that my weight is a touchy subject to discuss, he made me feel comfortable and provided me with a light at the end of the tunnel”. Susan.H.
“I had explained my concerns relating to other weight loss programs that I had previously explored, and Dr. Dittrich reassured me that the Modified HCG Diet was not only safe, but medically proven which made me know that I was making the right choice”. Alan.G.
“During the weight loss consultation, everything that I suspected was explained in detail and I truly felt like I was the only patient at PAWC. The best part about the meeting was that as opposed to feeling like I was on the receiving end of a sales pitch, I knew that Dr. D honestly cared about my health and overall well-being. He asked me a series of questions relating to my eating habits and lifestyle in order to obtain a better understanding of how I reached the weight and level of health that I did”. Robin K
