MEDICAL WEIGHT LOSS

Health4life offers two programs to achieve the most effective weight loss. We offer prescription weight loss programs and pharmaceutical grade supplement weight loss programs....along with eating good and working out! 
 

PLAN A - Prescription Weight Loss Plan - We prescribe prescription drugs that are FDA approved and endorsed as quality weight loss products. Each is designed for a specific type of patient and purpose. We have given a brief description and names of the products we have prescribed to our patients with positive results. Dr. Thomas Alfreda will answer any questions you may have on any products when you schedule you initial consultation.  
 

PLAN B - Pharmaceutical Grade Supplement Weight Loss Plan - We have combined 5 incredible detoxing and weight loss over-the-counter Pharmaceutical Grade products that will cleanse your body and at the same time, fill your body with all the right nutrients to help you lose weight and keep your vitamins and minerals at optimal levels. This is the most successful non-prescription weight loss product combination we have ever used in our clinic. Combining this with professional exercise & a meal plan will optimize your results.

 

PLAN A

Prescription Weight Loss Plan

Eating less and moving more are the basics of weight loss that lasts. For some people, prescription weight loss drugs may help. You'll still need to focus on diet and exercise while taking these drugs, and they're not for everyone.

 

Doctors usually prescribe them only if your BMI is 30 or higher, or if it's at least 27 and you have a condition that may be related to your weight, like type 2 diabetes or high blood pressure. Before you get a weight loss drug prescription, tell our doctor about your medical history. That includes any allergies or other conditions you have; medicines or supplements you take (even if they're herbal or natural); and whether you're pregnant, breastfeeding, or planning to get pregnant soon.
(All must be prescribed in person with Health4life Doctor.)

Phentermine

How it works: Curbs your appetite.Your doctor may prescribe this under the names Adipex or Suprenza. It interacts with the hypothalamus gland, reducing just how hungry you feel. This makes Phentermine effective but it is only designed for short-term use. It provides the small boost that patients often need to cement healthy eating habits and exercise routines.

Approved for long-term use? No. It's approved for short-term use (a few weeks) only. 

HCG Diet

More to come.

Tesofensine

More to come...

Saxenda

Saxenda® is an FDA-approved, prescription injectable medicine that, when used with a low-calorie meal plan and increased physical activity, may help some adults with excess weight and who also have weight-related medical problems (such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or type 2 diabetes), or obesity,b to lose weight and keep it off. Saxenda® is not for the treatment of type 2 diabetes and should not be used with Victoza® or any other GLP-1 receptor agonist or insulin. 

Contrave

How it works: Contrave is a combination of two FDA-approved drugs, naltrexone and bupropion, in an extended-release formula. Naltrexone is approved to treat alcohol and opioid dependence. Bupropion is proved to treat depression, seasonal affective disorder, and help people stop smoking. 
Approved for long-term use? Yes.

 

Qsymia

How it works: Curbs your appetite. Qsymia combines phentermine with the seizure/migraine drug topiramate. Topiramate causes weight loss in several ways, including helping you feel full, making foods taste less appealing, and burning more calories.

Approved for long-term use? Yes. Qsymia has much lower amounts of phentermine and topiramate than when these drugs are given alone.

Belviq

BELVIQ/BELVIQ XR is a FDA-approved prescription weight-loss medication that, when used with diet and exercise, can help some adults (body mass index [BMI]  ≥27 kg/m2) living with extra weight, with a weight-related medical problem, or adults living with obesity (BMI  ≥30 kg/m2), lose weight and keep it off. It is not known if BELVIQ/BELVIQ XR when taken with other prescription, over-the-counter, or herbal weight-loss products is safe and effective. It is not known if BELVIQ/BELVIQ XR changes your risk of heart problems, stroke, or death due to heart problems or stroke.

Approved for long-term use? Yes.

Our DrHealth4life non-prescription/Pharmaceutical Grade Supplement weight loss products are the exact products that all our Health4life staff have used to lose 5-10lbs successfully each time, in a short period of time. Our Pharmaceutical Grade Products are the highest quality on the market! We can guide you on how to combine these products to maximize the best results available to lose weight.

Gastro Cleanser

STEP 1

Gastro Cleanser is a comprehensive, monk-fruit-extract-sweetened, low-allergy–potential dietary supplement designed to support gastrointestinal (GI) function and balanced detoxification. It features Vegan Protein Blend, Health4Life’s proprietary amino acid and pea/rice protein blend; Aminogen®, to facilitate protein absorption; phytonutrients; mineral amino acid chelates; and activated B vitamins, including Quatrefolic® and methylcobalamin. In conjunction with a modified elimination diet, Gastro Cleanser addresses GI and hepatic function as well as eicosanoid balance and cytokine metabolism. This formula is suitable for vegans.*

Optimal Leptin

STEP 2

Optimal Leptin represents an advanced, science-based strategy for positively affecting leptin levels. Leptin is a fat-cell derived hormone that is elevated in some individuals. Healthy leptin activity helps balance energy intake and expenditure by influencing appetite, food cravings, and metabolism.*

Pure Antioxidant

STEP 3

Pure Antioxidant is a whole-body, multifunctional antioxidant that helps to maintain healthy, well-functioning cells. Pure Antioxidant is designed to neutralize free radicals. Pure Antioxidant has the ability to destroy free radicals in both the water-based and lipid-based portion of cells, making it the ideal whole-body antioxidant. In addition, Pure Antioxidant helps the body synthesize glutathione, the body’s own master detoxifier. Pure Antioxidant also “recharges” other important antioxidants, such as vitamins C and E, and CoQ10, giving them the ability to continue fighting free radicals for extended periods of time. Unlike regular alpha-lipoic acid, Pure Antioxidant’s patented, controlled-release formulation provides extended protection. In addition, biotin supports the function of alpha-lipoic acid in regulating glucose metabolism.*

Premium Green Tea

STEP 4

Premium Green Tea is an ultra-pure, water-extracted green tea formula that is rich in polyphenols, a class of phytochemical compounds that supports antioxidant activity. Research has shown that green tea supports natural detoxifying enzymes, normal gene signaling, and the health and function of intestinal flora.*

Bio-Optimized Resveratrol

STEP 5

Bio-Optimized Resveratrol provides a complete bioflavonoid complex with resveratrol, quercetin, and pterostilbene. These three antioxidants work together synergistically. Pterostilbene, a new focus of scientific research, is methylated resveratrol, a bio-optimized form that complements resveratrol and quercetin. These compounds are being extensively studied in the areas of cardiovascular health and aging.*
