Semaglutide Weight Loss Injection Medication

What is Semaglutide and how does it work? 
Semaglutide is in a class of medications called glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1) agonists. GLP-1 agonists work by stimulating the pancreas to increase the release of insulin. This additional insulin causes the stomach to empty over an extended period of time. The slow emptying of the stomach is one of the first steps in a chain reaction that makes semaglutide effective. The GLP-1 receptors that are present in several regions of the brain receive signals of "being Full". This signal is sent throughout the day, even when eating decreased calories. This is known as appetite suppression effect based on the patients' own natural insulin production. Semaglutide will lead to healthier blood sugar levels, leaving the patient feeling more energetic throughout their day. Dedication to healthy lifestyle choices is necessary for long-term weight management.
Why Semaglutide, the modern day "Game Changer"?
  • FDA Approved
  • Decreases Appetite and Cravings
  • Improves Insulin Resistance
  • Real Weight Loss Results
  • Safe and Effective Once Weekly Injection
  • Promotes Success Rates in Weight Loss and Management

Nutritional counseling is a great first step toward weight loss

While there are many different approaches to weight loss, they all depend on consuming fewer calories than your body burns for energy. When you reduce calories, you face the challenge of getting all the nutrients you need from less food. That’s why the nutrition specialists at Southwest Family Medicine Associates have such essential roles in your weight loss success.

Your weight loss program begins with a complete nutrition assessment and medical history, followed by a discussion about your weight loss goals, lifestyle, and how you’ve tried to lose weight in the past. Every weight loss program is individualized to serve your unique needs and to realistically fit your lifestyle. The nutritionists understand that losing weight is a complex challenge, so they work with you to find an appropriate solution.

Long-term maintenance

No matter how you lose weight, keeping it off depends on learning about portion control and choosing healthy foods. On this plan, you learn everything you need to know to maintain your weight loss. Cheri, a clinical nutritionist, works with you to help you modify your diet, with small attainable weekly goals that result in slow, sustainable weight loss.


hCG weight loss protocol

This is a very-low-calorie diet plus treatment with oral or injected human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG), which facilitates rapid weight loss and promotes fat burning.


Skinny Shots / Lipotropic

Skinny Shots are a mixture of B vitamins, amino acids, and lipotropic agents. They are used to help patients with generalized weight loss by boosting energy and metabolism and increasing removal of fat from the body. The Skinny shot is a special formula of liver supporting nutrients that can help with energy, fat metabolism, and hormone balance, which are all key liver functions.

Lipotropic injections

This treatment contains natural substances that help increase metabolism and burn more calories.


Natural supplements

Meal replacements

These products reduce calorie intake while providing balanced nutrition with healthy ingredients.  PaleoMeal® from Designs for Health is a nutrient-rich powdered meal replacement designed to help promote optimal intake of protein, fats, and carbohydrates. It is different from over-the-counter protein meal replacements because it’s sweetened with stevia, so there is no increased sugar. This is a cost-effective program that allows you to lose weight in a controlled, consistent manner.

Herbal supplements

These improve nutrition and boost metabolism. Two supplements to help with natural weight loss that may be incorporated into your program are:

  • EndoTrimTM for fat loss, controlling appetite and cravings, balancing blood sugar, and improving metabolism; you should take it with food
  • Thermo-EFxTM helps increase your body’s metabolism without causing any stimulant-associated side effects; it contains bitter orange extract with green tea extract (decaffeinated)


Detox cleansing program

These individualized plans use elimination diets, nutritional supplements, and cleansing shakes to alleviate fatigue, stress, allergies, headaches, and other long-standing problems.
