Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How does your program work?
A: All of our programs are centered on detoxifying your body and turning on your fat burning hormones. Whether you have 10-15 lbs to lose or need to drop 50 to 100 lbs, we have a program that can help you sleep better, have more energy, and lose weight for the long term.
Q: How long before I see results?
A: Most patients start seeing positive results within the first 1-2 weeks. The average is 10-30 lbs per month. Weight loss shouldn't be faster than 1/2 - 1 lb per day. Any faster will not be fat loss but water or loss of lean tissue (your muscles and organs).
Q: What makes your program different?
A: Instead of treating the symptoms (the weight), we focus on identifying and treating the cause (toxicity and hormonal imbalances). Once the metabolism is back in balance, patients have improved health and can lose weight and keep it off.
Q: Do I have to eat certain foods?
A: There aren't prepackaged foods or exchange lists. Of course, there are allowed foods and foods that aren't, which foods are allowed or not are determined by which program is right for you based on your assessment results. We don't have a one size fits all approach.
Q: Do I have to take diet pills?
A: No, we don't use medication. Along with eating the correct foods, patients take high quality herbal supplements and nutrition shakes which help curb cravings, detoxification, and address underlying imbalances in the body.
Q: What is Lipo Light?
A: Lipo Light Advanced Slimming and Toning Program is the latest in non-invasive body contouring treatment. The 1/2 hour treatments deliver immediate and effective results. It's safe, relaxing and totally pain free. The light treatments are FDA approved and are the perfect non-surgical alternative to inch loss on stubborn bulges.
Q: Exactly how does it work?
A: Light emitting panels are placed over the area to be treated. The light dilates pores in the fat cells causing fatty acid, glycerol and water to be released. The body drainage system carries it away for elimination.
Q: What about saggy areas?
A: Lipo Light stimulates fibroblasts, strengthening the collagen and elastin fibers to tone and tighten your skin. We even have a Lipo Light facial mask which is a fantastic, non-surgical alternative to a face lift.
Q: How do I get rid of cellulite?
A: Since cellulite isn't fat but rather toxcity combined with edema and a lack of circulation, we combine internal detoxification with external body wraps. These combine to free and remove waste trapped in the connective tissue.
Q: What can be done for belly fat?
A: We can target specific fat bulges very effectively with a series of Lipo Light sessions combined with inch loss body wraps. This works for other, stubborn areas such as thighs, hips or even arms or chin.
Q: What's included with your program?
A: In addition to all the herbal supplements and nutritional shakes all of our patients enjoy a weekly visit. Most programs include not only one on one consultations but body wraps combined with positive affirmation tapes and music that distress the body as well as retain our brain to eliminate old patterns of failure and your weekly visit also includes negative eating. A short exercise period (20 minutes) and some relaxing sauna time.
Q: I've lost weight on other programs and gained it back. What makes yours better?
A: We aren't a 'lose weight fast' gimmick or the latest fad diet. In fact, we really aren't a diet in the way most of us think of. We offer a comprehensive health improvement process that helps patients lose weight and keep it off. We offer a phenomenal maintenance program once you've reached your goal.
