All weight loss plans include individualized diet and exercise counseling.
Hormones and weight management
Hormones regulate every part of the body including: regulating weight, metabolism, blood sugar, insulin levels, and where your body stores fat. If weight gain or lack of weight loss has been a problem, despite careful diet and exercise attempts, you likely have hormonal imbalance. Black Rock Integrative Medicine uses ZRT Laboratory’s Weight Management Hormone Testing kit to precisely identify the individual hormone imbalances that are interfering with your weight goals. This highly specific testing enables us to provide you with a customized treatment plan that will restore optimal hormone balance, and subsequently lead to weight loss.

Weight loss medications

HCG diet (human chorionic gonadotropin hormone)- injections administered daily which allows your hypothalamus to function at a higher capacity and access abnormal fat deposits. This glycoprotein allows you to burn between 2500-4000 calories daily with an intake of only 500 calories per day without hunger, loss of energy, or need for exercise. Average weight loss is 1-2 pounds per day.
