Why this program works

Successful weight loss depends on 4 pillars of management: Diet, Physical Activity, Emotional Wellness and Medical Management. The online Rewire curriculum is a 12-week program that guides participants through proper dietary changes, advice on physical activity and behavior modification. Each week participants will learn a new lesson that focuses on one or more of these pillars.

The goal of medical management is to help individuals to achieve weight loss of 5% at 12 weeks. While prescription weight loss can be very effective, the other factors must be addressed to allow for goal achievement and maintenance of weight loss.

 

Add on options:

Peptide Therapy

Peptides are Amino Acids that instruct the body to perform certain tasks. Some peptide regimens can assist with weight loss by increasing the body’s secretion of Growth Hormone which aids in the burning of fat and increased muscle growth.

 

Bioidentical Hormone Optimization

Hormone optimization with bioidentical testosterone can assist in weight reduction by increasing energy and lean muscle which in turn increases metabolism. Thyroid hormone optimization also has a direct impact on metabolism.


Extensive Micronutrient Testing

When on a calorie restricted diet, many individuals can develop imbalances of micronutrients. This extensive test by Genova labs allows your practitioner to identify micronutrient deficits and recommend an individualized supplement plan.

 

Program participants receive discounts on:

Lipo (MIC) and B12 injections

Lipo shots contain Vitamin B12, B complex and the amino acids Methionine, Inositol and Choline. This combination of ingredients is fat burning in nature and increases energy.

B12 shots may be administered separately and may improve metabolism and energy.

 

IV infusions

IV nutrition delivers micronutrients directly into the blood stream. Certain formulas may assist with increased energy and metabolism. The infusions also may help provide nutrients when on a calorie restricted diet.

 

Hypnotherapy

Guided hypnosis can assist with weight loss efforts by reprogramming thinking patterns to allow individuals to achieve success in their plans.

 

*Surgery

Sometimes surgery is the best option for long-term weight loss. Amethyst Wellness has partnered with Dr. Darren Peterson and Panhandle Weight Loss Center. A surgical consult is included for all program participants.

 

Weight Loss Q&A?

What causes unhealthy weight gain?

Several factors contribute to unhealthy weight gain, including genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors. While you can’t control or change your genetic makeup, you can take steps to prevent, manage, or even cure chronic diseases through a healthy lifestyle.

How can I lose excess weight?

Shifting to a healthier diet and more active lifestyle go a long way toward promoting weight control. Helpful dietary strategies may include swapping out refined starches, such as white bread, with whole-grain alternatives, eating more fruits and vegetables, and choosing lean protein sources such as fish and tofu over fatty meats. Eating mindfully, staying well-hydrated, and learning to healthfully control food portions can also help. To stay active and have fun in the process, make activity enjoyable by adding music, walking with a friend, or trying a variety of classes. Managing stress and aiming for sufficient nightly sleep also play important roles in weight control.

How can a food journal help?

Tracking your daily diet in a journal, app, or document on your computer can enhance weight control by increasing awareness. The more aware you are of your behaviors, the more likely you’ll be to address those in need of improving. A food journal also provides a useful tool for nutrition consultations, allowing Amy Coopersmith to assess your habits accurately and provide effective shifts. For best results, aim for honesty and track your food and drink intake throughout the day, rather than trying to remember later.

How do genetic nutrition and fitness tests work?

Amethyst Wellness has partnered with FitnessGenes to offer DNA tests designed to help you understand what nutrition and exercise steps may be most helpful, based on your genetic makeup. You start by ordering a FitnessGenes DNA test kit, then send your submit your saliva sample for testing. Once your results have been analyzed, you’ll receive customized diet and activity advice.
