Semaglutide Weight Loss
Management Program.

Our weight loss program includes a consultation with our Medical Director/Practitioner in office, lab work review to ensure you are a good candidate for this program, a customized treatment plan, and weekly check ins with your Provider.

What is Semaglutide?

Semaglutide is an injectable GLP-1 receptor agonist drug that’s conventionally used to treat type 2 diabetes, but has been proven to aid in weight loss.

How does Semaglutide help you lose weight?

Semaglutide slows down stomach emptying and signals to your brain that your stomach is full. This allows patients to experience less hunger and feel satisfied longer.

Please give us a call if you have any other questions!

FAQ’s

What is Semaglutide?

Semaglutide is a long-acting analog of a naturally occurring hormone in the body (GLP-1) and was FDA approved in 2021 for the treatment of obesity and well as readily prescribed for treatment of diabetes since 2017.

What is GLP-1?-

Glucagon-like peptide-1 (or GLP-1) is a naturally occurring hormone in the body that is secreted in the gut and targets multiple receptors throughout the body related to appetite and hunger.

Who is not a candidate for Semaglutide?

Semaglutide is not recommended for those who have ever had (or have a family history of) a type of thyroid cancer called medullary thyroid carcinoma (MTC) or if you (or a member of your family) have an endocrine system condition called Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia syndrome type 2 (MEN 2). Semaglutide is also not recommended for those who have had a serious allergic reaction to Semaglutide or any of the ingredients in semaglutideTM. Semaglutide is not recommended for those with Type I diabetes.

What Labs do I need to order?

A1c (Hemoglobin) and TSH (Thyroid stimulating Hormone)

How long is the treatment and what does it include?

The length of treatment depends on the amount of weight you desire to lose. We recommend giving this medication 12 weeks to fully start seeing results and after that if you have not lost any weight, to discontinue use.

How fast will I start to lose weight?

While taking Semaglutide, some people begin to see results within the first eight weeks, but most begin to see results within 12 weeks. Clinical trials have shown that study participants taking a weekly dose of Semaglutide had an average reduction in body weight of 5-10 percent.

What are IC Lipolean Injections?

IC Lipolean injections are a type of lipotropic injections that include amino acids and essential nutrients that are considered to assist in fat burning. These amino acids and vitamins gear up the metabolism which leads to using more energy hence the fat burning. This combination of vitamins and amino acids helps the body metabolize fat, detoxifies, and protects cells from aging making it a great option for anyone.

In many cases, IC Lipolean Injectons are used in conjunction with other dietary regimens. Typically, for many patients we recommend weekly injections for 4-6 weeks and then bi-monthly as maintenance.

If you have tried everything to lose weight or want to maintain the weight you are at, lipo injections are a great weight loss supplement that is cost-effective and minimally invasive.  Lipotrpoic injections, although most commonly used for weight loss purposes, have several positive health benefits other than fat burning. Those who are trying to speed up their metabolism or supplement the nutrients and minerals they are deficient in may also benefit from utilizing lipo injections.

What are “MIC Injections”?

GAC (GLUTAMINE, ARGININE, CARNITINE)

”Mic injections”

Glutamine

Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid (building block of protein) in the body. The body can make enough glutamine for its regular needs. But during times of extreme stress (the kind you experience after heavy exercise or an injury), your body may need more glutamine than it can make. Most glutamine is stored in muscles, followed by the lungs where much of the glutamine is made.

Glutamine is important for removing excess ammonia (a common waste product in the body). It also helps your immune system function and may be needed for normal brain function and digestion.

When the body is stressed (from injuries, infections, burns, trauma, or surgical procedures), it releases the hormone cortisol into the bloodstream. High levels of Cortisol can lower your body’s stores of glutamine.

L-Arginine

L-Arginine, like other amino acids, plays a role in building protein. The body can use the protein to help build muscle and rebuild tissue. In addition to building protein, L-Arginine releases nitric oxide in the blood. Nitric oxide causes blood vessels to open wider for improved blood flow.

Increased nitric oxide enhances exercise performance by improving blood flow and oxygenation to the muscles. L-Arginine also stimulates the release of growth hormone, insulin, and other substances in the body.

L-Carnitine

Carnitine is a substance that helps the body turn fat into energy. Your body makes it in the liver and kidneys and stores it in the skeletal muscles, heart, brain, and sperm

L-Carnitine plays a role in most mammals’ energy production function. The body produces it through the synthesis of lysine and Methionine. Carnitine can also be sourced from food, particularly meat.

L-Carnitine facilitates energy production by transporting fat cells to the mitochondria, where they are converted to energy. The rate of fat burn is believed to be proportional to the intake of L-Carnitine.

Because L-Carnitine is seen as a fat burner, it has become a popular supplement to aid in weight management regimens.

Alpha Lipoic Acid Treatment

An ALA IV treatment (alpha-lipoic acid can give your body the nutrients it needs to stay well and for you to feel better. Alpha-lipoic acid is a powerful antioxidant that works with the mitochondria – the body’s energy powerhouses – to boost metabolism, prevent inflammation, eliminate toxins and reverse some of the oxidant (free radical) damage related to aging. It is also used in adjunctive cancer care. Our bodies naturally synthesize this compound but only in small amounts.

Alpha-Lipoic Acid IV Treatments Have Many Benefits

As an antioxidant, alpha-lipoic acid has many wellness benefits, including its ability to protect the body’s cells against free radicals, which are unstable molecules that naturally occur in our body that can damage proteins, DNA and cell membranes. Just a few of the benefits of an alpha-lipoic acid treatment from Neighborhood Naturopathic may include:

  • Eliminates unwanted toxins like metals or mycotoxins
  • Restoration of other antioxidant levels
  • Reduction in blood sugar levels
  • Symptom improvement in diabetic or chemotherapy related peripheral neuropathy\
  • Slow cell damage caused by free radicals and environmental toxins
  • Support energy production(mitochondria)

Why Receive ALA IV?

  • Aids in weight loss management
  • Adiunctive cancer care
  • Mold and heavy metal toxicity
  • Diabetes and insulin resistance
  • Neuropathy and neuropathic pain
  • Lyme disease

IV Infusion of Alpha Lipoic Acid

When delivered via intravenous drip therapy, ALA bypasses the digestive tract and directly enters your bloodstream. From there, it is quickly routed to depleted cells throughout your body for immediate use. For the treatment of serious diseases and health conditions, I therapy is the delivery method of choice.

Many people will do 10-12 weekly ALA infusions and then do a maintenance IV every 3-5 weeks.

IV-ALA can be administered the same day as high dose IC in adjunctive cancer care. IV-ALA is also a common ad-on in other formulas like a Myers for antioxidant and mitochondrial(energy) support.

Additional ALA IV Information

Alpha lipoic acid (ALA) is an antioxidant found in every cell of the human body. Antioxidants are compounds that inhibit cellular oxidation, a process that produces free radicals that can damage cells and undermine their function. ALA is sometimes referred to as the universal antioxidant because it supports other antioxidants like vitamins C and E, and glutathione. ALA is involved in multiple antioxidant functions in virtually all body tissues, protecting your body’s organs and systems from damage so they can keep you fit and healthy.

Role of lipoic acid in human health

In addition to its role as a powerful antioxidant, ALA is critical to mitochondrial health.

Mitochondria are tiny organelles inside human cells that help convert glucose to ATP, the energy molecule, through a series of chemical reactions. Lipoic acid is a highly essential cofactor in the mitochondrial energy production cycle that enables cellular respiration and ATP production. Mitochondrial dysfunction has been linked to aging and disease in humans, and ALA supports mitochondrial health.
