Medical Weight Loss in Colorado Springs: HCG, Doctor-directed personal training, diet plan, cleanses and more
Thrive Health Systems believe that weight loss is best accomplished when overseen by a weight loss doctor in Colorado Springs, who can control the process form start to completion. Weight loss can be caused by so many things that are medically related, not just diet and exercise related. Weight gain can be caused by food allergies, hormone imbalances, depression and other mental health disorders, stress, and various diseases. Until you get the underlying cause identified by a physician, you may never obtain the results you aim for.
In fact, many of the diet programs in Colorado Springs and nationwide use products that contain substances that are harmful for the weight loss participant, from a health perspective.
At Thrive Health Systems, we perform a thorough physical exam prior to diving into weight management. A properly functioning body properly burns fat. We recently found that one of our patients had a food allergy to wheat, and by going on a gluten-free diet and following an allergenic elimination diet, he has lost 35 lbs in four weeks. He lost 35 lbs in 4 weeks without increasing his exercise routine.
However, the truth is, his story is not your story. At Thrive Health Systems, we individualize your care plan, based on your unique health status. Your solution may include HCG weight loss treatment by one of our medical practitioners, blood tests, allergy tests, hormone tests, an exercise regime overseen onsite by our personal trainer, a diet plan, a cleanse, and more. Of course, it is likely not all of these and it may be just one of these things.
One thing to also consider is that health comes first at Thrive. A healthy person is an active person, at their ideal body weight. Just because you are skinny, that doesn't mean you are healthy. We think "health first."
An example of this that we don't speak in terms of weight loss, we speak in terms of health and body composition. For instance, most men would rather be 225 and shredded with muscle, than 195 and skinny. The problem with most of us is not that we are overweight, but that we are over-fat. This is why we measure body composition, rather than just using scales.

Have you noticed that allergies in Colorado Springs are pretty severe this year? Symptoms can be as simple as itchy eyes, and as severe as puking on a routine basis and asthma. If you are suffering from allergies this year, get to a Colorado Springs allergy doctor. Even as I write this, I'm sneezing:)
Many illnesses that seem to have a vague diagnosis or seem to come and go can be the result of an allergic reaction. Allergies are one of those things that are rarely discussed or brought into the discussion of public health, but they are impacting most of us on a routine basis.
When most people think of allergic reactions, they think of bee stings or maybe Will Smith in the hit movie Hitch, when he ate shell fish and swelled up on his first date with Eva Mendez. The are called IGE reactions. But, more often than not, allergic reactions are much more subtle and chronic causing our runny noses, chronic sinus issues, sneeze attacks, bloating, weight gain and more. These are called IGG reactions.
Consider this: Since you were a kid, you likely ate a similar diet first created by your parents, and then maintained as habit. But, what if various foods in your diet were actually making you sick? I'm sure you've heard of gluten intolerance and a gluten free diet. Most gluten free people are gluten free because they determined that gluten was in fact making them chronically ill. Dr. Molly Kallenbach is one of those people, and she discovered her gluten intolerance (mild allergy) five years ago. Her life changed dramatically for the better, just by ditching gluten from her diet.
Gluten is only one of the common allergies. You may literally be severely allergic to everyday foods that you are not aware of: tomatoes, nuts, cucumbers, etc. Give your body a break, get tested, and find out what may be ailing you.
On years like this one, when we get loads of wonderful rain, allergens that perhaps weren't present in past year are now in full bloom, including molds. Couple these new environmental factors with habitually consuming allergenic foods, and you've got a recipe for severe reactions. The good news is we can help.
Dr. Kallenbach, Dr. Arter, and Dr. Malmgren (DC, PA) or medical physician assistant all test patients for allergies and treat patients by identifying allergenic foods and environmental stimulants, and eliminating exposure to the allergens. Dr. Malmgren also uses medical allergy treatments to diminish the impact of the allergen on the body over time, typically using a series of injections. If you are looking for a Colorado Springs allergy doctor, call 719.476.0873. If for some reason, we cannot help you, we can refer you to further specialists who can.
If you are fed up with sneezing, puking, low energy, runny noses, sinus infections, mood swings, swelling, skin disorders, etc., then give us a call and get tested today to find out what you are allergic to.
From a medical weight loss standpoint, we've helped patients identify allergens in their diet and they have lost 20 lbs in two weeks, just by eliminating a particular food!
Allergies are a big deal, and they rarely identified in a primary care setting as the cause of your symptoms, so you can end up chasing symptoms rather than addressing the cause.
