Weight Loss Q&A

How can I safely achieve weight loss?

The best way to lose weight is steadily and sustainably. Though crash diets can be tempting, they often simply don’t work, or if they do help you lose weight at first, you can end up quickly gaining back all or more of that weight. 

Jelena Petkovic, PAC, MMS, DHSc, helps patients achieve their goal, whether it’s to lose a few stubborn pounds or many more, with a weight loss program that optimizes metabolism, regulates your mood, and burns fat as an ideal energy source.

How do I start my weight loss journey?

When you come to Dr. Jelena to discuss your desired weight loss, she begins by getting to know you better. She performs a physical exam, reviews your medical history, including your weight history, then talks to you about you.

Specifically, she asks about your previous barriers to weight loss, your weight loss goals, and your mental and emotional relationship with food. By getting to know your physical, mental, and emotional health, she can better create a weight loss plan that will work for you.

Dr. Jelena offers safe, efficient, sustainable weight loss programs that include custom combinations of services like:

  • Lifestyle and behavior modification
  • Therapeutic doses of supplements
  • Nutritional coaching
  • Injectable vitamin therapies (including MIC and vitamin B12 injections)
  • Hormone replacement therapy
  • Intermittent fasting

With Dr. Jelena at the helm, you can expect to shed up to 10 pounds a month as you address the root cause of your weight struggles.

How do injectable vitamin therapies support weight loss?

Injectable vitamin therapies support weight loss in a variety of ways. For example, MIC injections are composed of methionine, inositol, and choline. Each component helps you lose weight in a different way:

Methionine

Methionine breaks down fat deposits that could otherwise build up in the arteries, and it supports digestion by removing heavy metals from the body. Your body can also convert methionine into cytosine, an essential substance for detoxifying the liver.

Inositol

Inositol supports nutrient transfers at the cellular level. It also helps establish healthy cell membranes and converts fats into various forms of useful energy.

Choline

The final essential ingredient of MIC, choline helps control blood cholesterol levels. It also assists in keeping weight gain at bay by maintaining healthy cell membranes.

Injectable vitamin therapies can also promote weight loss by metabolizing carbohydrates and fats, breaking down nutrients to release energy, and more.

There’s no shame in needing help losing weight. Take back your power and schedule your weight loss consultation with Dr. Jelena online or over the phone today.
