Weight Loss Q & A

Why should I seek medical help with weight loss?

If you’ve ever tried to lose weight on your own, you know how frustrating it can be. There are mixed messages in the media about what diet is “best,” and even if you’re successful at first, you often end up regaining weight once you go back to old habits. 

Medically supported weight loss helps keep you accountable. Plus, you have a professional who can monitor your progress and nutrition and help manage any chronic conditions as you lose pounds.

What are weight loss injections?

Weight loss shots safely and effectively help your body to burn fat, increase energy, lower stress and anxiety, restore mental clarity, and decrease hunger. You may take these injections once a week or as needed when your weight loss is at a standstill. 

The team at Babcock Health and Wellness customizes the injection to your needs. The compounds included in injections are:

Vitamin B12 

Your body easily absorbs vitamin B12, using it to form red blood cells and aid in the maintenance of a healthy nervous and cardiovascular system. 

When injected, vitamin B-12 increases your energy, helps you sleep better, and improves alertness. This supports physical activity so you can burn more calories and lose weight. 

Vitamin B5

Vitamin B5, or pantothenic acid, supports your adrenal gland function and thus is important to hormone production. These hormones assist your metabolism, boost immunity, and help you maintain healthy skin, muscles, and nerves.

Pantothenic acid is also used in the release of energy as well as the metabolism of fat, protein, and carbohydrates. 

Vitamin B6

Vitamin B6 reduces homocysteine levels, lowering your risk of stroke, heart disease, cancer, Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's disease, and many degenerative diseases. 

The vitamin also supports the health of your nervous system, the creation of red blood cells, and may help reduce your risk of developing cancer. 

Vitamin B3

The body uses vitamin B3 in the process of releasing energy from carbohydrates. It’s needed to form fat from carbohydrates and to process alcohol. 

L-Carnitine

Carnitine, also known as L-Carnitine, is a naturally occurring nutrient that helps convert fat into energy, making it a natural weight loss supplement. 

M.I.C. Lipotropic

Lipotropic agents help promote your body’s ability to burn fat. 

How does body contouring complement weight loss?

Babcock Health and Wellness Clinic uses advanced BTL Cellutone™ technology to burn inches of fat off of your body. This non-invasive procedure is a valid alternative to liposuction or other surgical weight-loss interventions. 

BTL Cellutone uses therapeutic vibrations to contribute to improved lymphatic drainage and waste elimination as well as enhanced blood flow. The technology can help sculpt areas like your abdomen, buttocks, bra area, calves, love handles, thighs, triceps, and biceps.
