Weight loss is something with which millions of people struggle. As you know, your weight doesn’t just contribute to your physical appearance. Your weight and the amount of fat in your body can help or hurt your body by contributing to either a healthy physique or lead to medical issues such as high blood pressure, diabetes, and heart disease. Weight loss is not just about restricting calories, which is what most people try to do. Weight loss is really about correcting your nutrition, managing your stress, and for some, working with or around chronic diseases and medical conditions.request an appointment

Metabolic Nutritional Deficiency
Metabolic Nutritional Deficiency is caused by a number of different conditions that interfere with the body’s metabolism. This can include diabetes, adrenal fatigue, hormone or vitamin deficiencies, thyroid disorders, lipedema, and many more. Slow metabolisms can also result in deficiency, we provide metabolic rate testing, or RMR, to help assess this. Our bodies can be very sensitive to metabolic deficiencies or changes, so it’s important to address any issues before they become bigger problems.

At Why Weight, LLC, we generally use Botox™ as a non-surgical treatment for wrinkles.(It has been used for over 15 years to treat a variety of medical conditions.) On April 15, 2002, the FDA approved Botox™ as a temporary aesthetic treatment for moderate to severe frown lines in adults. It is commonly used as a preventative treatment to slow down the formation of fine lines and wrinkles. (Wrinkles are caused by your face making the same expressions over and over again. Botox™ limits those expressions to potentially prevent wrinkles). Botox™ blocks the nerve impulses of muscles that cause wrinkles, thereby giving the skin a smoother appearance. It can be used to:
- Treat wrinkles and creases of the forehead, crows feet, & frown lines.
- Elevate the brow area.
- “Flip” your lip upward and outward, giving your lip a fuller appearance.
