The weight management program at INNERHEALTH does not emphasize diets, calorie reductions, or meal replacements. We do not believe that there is any one way of losing weight and maintaining the weight loss that is correct for everyone. We consider you a unique individual, and we evaluate together with you what would be a promising approach for you. We consider what has worked for you in the past, and why you feel you have previously failed to maintain the weight loss.
The weight loss program at INNERHEALTH is a multimodal treatment program. First, we assist you with counseling to address the above-mentioned issues. Second, we include acupuncture, which has shown to suppress appetite and reduce weight regardless of dietary adherence. Third, we discuss lifestyle issues, including food supplementation, exercise, sleep, and social support. We are committed to assisting you in changing the way you view your weight and the role of food in your life on a long-term basis. We want you to make a change that will allow you to maintain the bodyweight you always wanted.

INNERHEALTH accepts most insurance plans. The length of the program and the associated costs are dependent on several factors, including how much weight you intend to use, and how severe the emotional problems are that you wish to address. Please call for further information; we offer free consultations to help you determine if this approach is right for you.
