One of the strategies used here in order to help you achieve your weight loss goals is prescription strength appetite suppressants. We use combinations of phentermine, topiramate, bupropion, naltrexone, and methyltetrahydrofolate. We also utilize Glucagon-Like Peptides (GLP-1) such as Saxenda and Wegovy as adjunct to diet and exercise for chronic weight management in adults.
Appetite suppressants help to minimize cravings for unhealthy foods while simultaneously teaching your body to remain satisfied and nourished throughout the day without overeating. These medications do not cause weight loss. They are prescribed to help you in reducing your caloric intake by reducing your hunger. Weight loss occurs when your caloric expenditure exceeds your caloric intake.
GLP-1 is an incretin hormone that plays a role in your appetite and digestion. Incretins — hormones released by your small intestine — are sent out by your body after you’ve eaten a meal to help lower your blood sugar by triggering insulin and blocking other sources of sugar. It also slows down how quickly food leaves your stomach (called gastric emptying).
The result of these actions causes you to feel full — lowering your appetite and causing you to lose weight. Medications like GLP-1 agonists are referred to as incretin mimetics since they “mimic” these effects.
As mentioned above, GLP-1 agonists were originally used to treat type 2 diabetes due to their blood sugar-lowering effects. However, the weight loss side effect has been shown to benefit people without type 2 diabetes as well.
While taking prescription weight loss medications, it is important to begin making behavioral and lifestyle changes, such as increasing your amount of daily physical activity, in addition to developing healthy eating choices and reducing your caloric intake. It is also important to ensure your hormones are optimized in order to maintain metabolic processes.
Dubbed the “Weight Loss Shot” or “Skinny Shot”, this safe and effective injection helps burn fat, increase energy, lower stress and anxiety, restore mental clarity and memory loss, and decrease hunger. Shots can be taken safely once a week or as needed when your weight loss is at a standstill.
A lipotropic substance decreases the deposit, or speeds up the removal of fat within the liver. Lipotropic nutrients are a class of agents that plays an important role in the body’s use of fat. They enhance the liver and gallbladder’s role by decreasing fat deposits and by speeding up the metabolism and removal of fats. The liver is the key organ in the control of body fat. Even if you do everything right, if your liver is slow to process fats it will slow your weight loss.
The lipotropic portion of our Lipo B injections is composed of three amino acids: Choline, Methionine, and Inositol. They help your liver process fats at peak efficiency, making your weight loss easier to maintain. For these reasons, we recommend weekly Lipotropic injections to help you lose weight. In most cases, after just 4 weeks of injections, you will look and feel healthier.*

At Sana Vida Wellness Center, we screen all our patients both medically and physically. With routine lab work and an appropriate physical exam we ensure that you receive the best weight loss advice possible. Our clinical testing is effective in diagnosing underlying kidney, heart, liver and thyroid, and hormone disease that may stand in the way of your weight loss goals. Our examinations are collectively used to diagnose certain medical conditions including diabetes, hypothyroidism/hyperthyroidism, hypogonadism, kidney, and liver disease.
We are fully capable of treating or optimizing such conditions if necessary before starting your weight loss program. We also monitor the side effects and long term effects of medication that our patients are taking. In specific patients we may feel the need to further evaluate your heart function with an EKG. If an indication arises we may need to supplement your weight loss program with additional precautions.
For those who qualify, we will prescribe the FDA approved appetite suppressants and/or recommend Lipo B injectables. Please note, Lipo B injectables are not included in the quarterly fee. As long as you follow our expert instructions, you can maximize your weight loss while simultaneously maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
Reach your goal weight quickly, safely, and effectively.
