Medical Weight Loss

AHC offers safe and healthy medical weight loss programs which are administered and supervised by our practitioners.  We first evaluate your needs and goals, then recommend the program we feel will achieve the best results.

Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG)

Our HCG weight loss program rids your body of stored fat while increasing your metabolism. Our bodies store fat reserves to keep the body from starving (not eating actually results in the body storing more fat reserves, which is why it is important to eat at least three balanced meals a day.)  The HCG weight loss program activates your fat reserves for use.  Patients may achieve weight loss of one pound per day if diet plan is followed.

The program is simple and includes:

  • Initial exam
  • Physician monitored medication*
  • Low calorie diet plan
  • Counseling
  • Weekly visits and weigh-ins

*Program does not include the medications, but includes monitoring.

Phentermine

Phentermine is an FDA approved appetite suppressant designed to boost energy while curbing your appetite. If we determine this is the best weight loss option, our physician will prescribe a 4-8 week course of the medication. We will work in conjunction with the medication to adjust your diet and help you determine an activity/exercise program which can be worked into your daily routine.

This program includes:

  • Initial exam
  • 4-8 weeks of physician monitored medication (Phentermine)*
  • Diet plan
  • Activity/exercise plan
  • Counseling
  • Weekly visits and weigh-ins

*Program does not include the medications, but includes monitoring.

Vitamin B12

Vitamin B12 is very successful in weight loss when it is combined with an appropriate diet and activity plan. Low B12 levels can interfere with a number of body systems, making you feel tired and depleted.  Boosting your Vitamin B12 helps increase your activity level and metabolism.
