We here at Origin Holistic recognize the complexities that go into a healthy diet and lifestyle that lead to a healthy weight. Losing and maintaining weight is about so much more than just “dieting”. Many factors influence weight gain in the American lifestyle which includes looking at diet, exercise, hormones, stress, and side-effects of medication. When you work with the doctors here we guide you towards a healthier lifestyle using some of the methods listed below.
FOOD SENSITIVITY TESTING
Recognizing that inflammation from food can lead to weight gain is key in maintaining your health and optimal weight. We start with a blood IgG Food Sensitivity panel to see what foods are promoting inflammation in your body. This test looks at 96 common foods that promote inflammation in the body which can lead to weight gain. The foods must be eliminated for 1-3 months and a diet and protocol is given to heal the body and bring down the inflammation that leads to weight gain. During this time other issues with weight are discussed as well.
SPECIAL DIETARY COUNSELING
We recommend that you start tracking your diet and exercise on Myfitnesspal and bring your diet diary in every 2-4 weeks to be reviewed by the doctors. This is the best way to introduce dietary changes in a safe and permanent way to maintain a healthy weight. During this time food and hormone testing may be recommended.
THE HCG PROGRAM AT ORIGIN HOLISTIC
This program is designed to meet the needs of both men and women. It is a strict cleansing diet that can be a jump start to your permanent weight loss goals and most individuals lose 0.5 to 1lb a day!
This unique program combines:
-- NUTRITIONAL COUNSELING
– HCG HORMONE THERAPY
– LIFESTYLE COUNSELING
A medically supervised HCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) weight loss program is a safe alternative to diet pills or bariatric type surgeries. You follow a safe healthy detox diet while on the program. HCG has been used for weight loss since the 1950’s, yet at Origin Holistic this diet is modified for each individual and additional nutritional supplements and testing may be recommended by the doctor. This diet is a combination of a ketogenic diet and is modified with the caloric intake being between 800-1200 calories based on the individual.
One key to losing the weight permanently on the HCG diet is to do a personalized IgG Food Sensitivity Test before starting the diet to identify key inflammatory foods to avoid during and after the diet. Also the participant needs to be committed to working closely with the doctor after the diet in order to follow a maintenance program and identify any triggers for weight gain to keep eveything in balance.
