There is mounting evidence that healthy, long-term weight loss can be acheived with pharmacology, in tandem with diet and exercise. At Kelly's Clinic we understand the importance of a healthy body weight on a person's overall wellness. When nutrition and exercise alone do not reap the results patients are looking for, or if a patient needs a "jump start," Kelly's Clinic will work with you to create a custom patient plan to address total health, hormonal imbalances, sluggish metabolism, detoxification and stubborn fat deposits.
Naltrexone and Bupropion: A proven combination for weight loss. Naltrexone is an opioid receptor agonist, and buproprion is a dopamine and norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor. Together these two medications activate a part of the brain that controls hunger.
Oxytocin Nasal Spray: Reduces cravings and increases satiety. Oxytocin is a peptide hormone produced in the hypothalmus. Studies have revealed that boosting oxytocin levels dampens the brain's response to stress, reducing anxiety, decreases craving for high-calorie foods, as well as increasing the activity of muscle stem cells, potentially increasing calorie-burning muscle cells.
Metaformin and Topiramate: Metaformin is used to treat type 2 diabetes. Studies has shown its effectiveness in weight loss by regulating hunger in the brain, reversing changes associated with aging, or altering the microbiome in the gut. The weight loss side effects of Topiramate were recognized when it was used to treat seizures.
Vitamin B12 Boosts: Vitamin B12 has been linked to weight loss, and deficiencies may increase the risk of obesity. Several studies have determined a link between low Vitamin B12 levels and type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, obesity, and metabolic syndrome.
Liportropic Injections: Lipotropic injections containing Methionine, Inositol, Choline, and B Vitamins have been used successfully in combination to promote weight loss. The nutrients in MIC injectables assist the body by decreasing fat deposits and speeding up metabolism. Mehtionine is an amino acid that removes heavy metals from the body while breaking down fat deposits. Inositol is a nutrient that reduces blood cholesterol and participates in serotonin production. Choline controls cholestorol levels in the blood and supports cell membranes.
Other well studied oral supplements used: Lipotropic nutrients, DHEA, Green Tea, 5-HTP, Berberine, Brown Seaweed.
