  • a MIC + injection to kick start your weight loss.
  • an initial semaglutide injection

The cost after the initial evaluation is $350 for 4 weekly visits. Offering the latest in appetite suppression medication ‘Semaglutide’ (brand name Wegovy or Ozempic) is a highly effective FDA approved weight loss drug.

Semaglutide is a once a week injection that has proven results in assisting in fat loss. The FDA approval was based on the results of the STEP (Semaglutide Treatment Effect in People with Obesity) clinical trial program, which included four clinical trials involving approximately 4,500 patients.

The trials demonstrated that patients taking Semaglutide (Wegovy™) achieved an average weight loss of 14.9% of body weight at 68-weeks. Read the article here: Semaglutide Study

Semaglutide is twice as effective as other presricption weight loss drugs on the market. Weight loss results are likened to those with bariatric surgery

Semaglutide is a Glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) produced by the gut.  It is a hormone that lowers blood sugar levels while inhibiting glucagon secretion. This slows down the release of sugar into the blood so that you burn more fat, reduces food intake by lowering appetite, and delays digestion in the stomach, making you feel fuller longer.  

The medication is sent directly to your home for self-administration. We will start you on a low dose of semaglutide injection and increase your dose after 4 weeks. We may increase your dose again after another 4 weeks based on your body’s response to the medication. Side effects are generally mild and decrease over time. These may include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and constipation. 

What are Peptides?

Peptides are made up of small chains of amino acids that tell your body to turn on and/or off its natural functions, safely and with virtually no side effects. Insulin and Iisinopril are peptides! They are very specifically targeted and play a role in telling other cells in the body what to do, effectively replacing or mimicking the functions of naturally occurring peptides.
Some peptides stimulate Human Growth Hormone, like Ipamorelin, which leads to better sleep, muscle gain, and improved joint health. Some peptides support weight loss like semaglutide and AOD. They can also assist in joint and tendon repair and speed up wound healing (BPC-157) and improve erectile function and sex drive (PT-141).

Peptides can assist in your weight loss journey. It’s important to note that no product can overcome bad habits. A person must lead a healthy lifestyle in order for any modality to be effective.

  • WEIGHT LOSS

What is a MIC injection?

We offer MIC injections that contain Methionine, Inositol, Choline, B6, and B12.

This is a fat-burning injection that contains the 3 key lipotropic ingredients: methionine, inositol, and choline, along with B6 and B12.

Lipotropic substances decrease the deposit of fats or speeds up the removal of fat within the liver. B6 is very important in the metabolism of fats and carbohydrates and B12 is excellent in helping increase energy. MIC injections are an effective way to help boost your energy, detox your liver, trim your waistline and metabolize fats and carbohydrates.

- Methionine:

A sulfur-containing amino acid that supports the digestive system by removing heavy metals from the body, breaking down fat deposits in the liver and body with many benefits such as helping to treat depression, inflammation, liver function, relieving pain, preventing excess and promoting, healthy growth and metabolism. Methioninee also works as a potent antioxidant through conversion of L-cysteine which helps neutralize toxins.

- Inositol:

Is a member of the vitamin B complex which benefits you by transforming fat throughout your body. It prevents fat build up in the cells, walls of your heart, arteries and brain by breaking down fatty deposits. Less fat in your arteries means lower cholesterol. It is also known to be very beneficial to one’s mood. Inositol aids in the metabolism of fats as well as helps control mood and appetite.

- Choline:

Essential for the normal function of all the body’s cells, brain and nerve function, liver metabolism and transportation of nutrients throughout the body. Research shows that most people seem to be deficient in choline which can increase weight gain. Choline also supports the nervous system and assists memory.
Boost your metabolism and energy levels with fat burning injections or IV vitamins and amino acids while helping remove fat and eliminating stress and fatigue.

- B Complex Injections (Distributed Via IV)

  • B5 is an essential nutrient to help with energy and the catabolism of fatty acids and amino acids.
  • B6 is a vital part of the enzyme system and very important to the metabolism of fats and carbohydrates. It is also vital to the normal function of the nervous and immune systems.
  • B12 is normally involved in the metabolism of every cell in the body. It helps promote energy and a healthy metabolism.

- L-Carnitine:

Assists with weight loss and muscle recovery can reduce fatigue and suppress appetite, plus increase strength to build more muscle and a healthy metabolism (can also be given with an IV)
