Our Weight Loss & Health Services
Altering your diet should only be part of your weight loss plan and, contrary to popular belief, it does not have to be restrictive. Our programs allow you to eat what you love, but in moderation and paired together with healthy exercise habits.
Clinical Weight Loss
Also known as medical weight loss or Bariatrics, clinical weight loss focuses on lifestyle changes instead of supplements, surgery, or strict diets. The goal is to approach weight loss with the whole being in mind, which includes nutrition, exercise physiology, and even psychology. We also focus on individualization to ensure that each plan offers maximum potential for weight loss and maintenance.
Tailoring each person's program to their own lifestyle and physical makeup makes a noticeable difference in the program's success. Whereas generalized, "one-size-fits-all" plans can work in one area and fail in another, our programs can be altered and adjusted to provide positive results in every area.
What Is Bariatrics?
Bariatric medicine focuses on the study, prevention, and treatment of weight problems and obesity. This includes clinical weight loss, dieting, behavioral therapy, and gastric surgeries. Our clinic focuses on a holistic approach to Bariatrics and could help you lose weight naturally and without the risks involved with harmful medications and surgery.
Some individuals may suffer from food allergies that affect their weight. Subtle allergies could cause the immune system to react, making fat cells around your internal organs swell to protect against the irritating foods. You might also retain water in reaction to these substances. South Denver Wellness could test for these allergies and other sensitivities and help you eliminate them from your diet.
Food Allergy Testing
IgG food allergy testing monitors your body's reaction to 96 different food products, including grains, nuts, fruits, vegetables, dairy, yeasts and more. Undergoing such a test could uncover unknown allergies that affect your health and your ability to lose weight.
Your weight loss goals could even be affected by your intestinal health, which could be upset by food allergies or bacterial imbalance. With our help, you could restore this balance and avoid foods that irritate your digestive system, allowing you to return to a healthy lifestyle so you can start shedding pounds.
A form of food sensitivity, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) involves irregular contractions of muscles along the large intestine or colon. This is often triggered by certain foods and can lead to digestive issues such as bloating, gas, constipation and diarrhea. Allergy testing or a food elimination diet could identify these food triggers. Likewise, gut restoration or the consumption of probiotics could relieve the symptoms of IBS.
A healthy gut and digestive tract includes the presence of microflora, or healthy bacteria. Should the balance of bacteria or yeast in your system become upset, restoration could be achieved through certain diets or the introduction of healthy probiotics.
Your intestinal health depends partly on the existence of healthy bacteria in your gut. Consumption of probiotics could treat digestion issues such as IBS, Candida, or even basic bloating and gas. Probiotics could also assist in weight loss due to the fact that they help break down certain foods, including carbohydrates and fats.
Food Elimination Diet
One way of determining whether or not you are allergic to a food product is through a food elimination diet. You remove a suspected food product from your diet. If your symptoms improve, you reintroduce it to see if your body reacts. This trial-and-error process can be continued with multiple products over a length of time.
