At Functional Medicine of Alaska, we take a no band aid approach to weight loss. We focus on the needs of the individual patient rather than a one size fits all diet. We view metabolic, hormonal, immunological, environmental, genetic, and other factors that might be preventing our patient's from losing weight.
If you are frustrated with chronic dieting to lose little to no weight, desire improvement in chronic diseases, or would simply like to prevent disease, this program is for you. At Functional Medicine of Alaska we take a functional medicine approach to weight loss.
In addition to our weight loss program, we are also available to offer nutrigentics for personalized nutrition. We also provide support to pre and post bariatric surgical patients in need of care locally.
Each weight loss care plan is based on the individual’s body chemistry and is tailored to restore and prevent many conditions through weight reduction. Unlike other “one size fits all” approaches, this program identifies your imbalances which are likely caused from a lifetime of exposure to stress, denatured or altered foods, environmental toxins, in combination with genetic predispositions that will cause weight gain, and chronic disease.
We often use nutrigenetics when patients have having severe difficulty with weight loss. Utilizing nutrigenetics results allows patients to improve methylation, and detoxification, as well as affecting epigenetic. Nutrigentics is also very helpful for weight reduction. There is nothing like eating for your genes, and tailoring the right diet and supplements to your genes.
Please schedule an initial evaluation with us prior to your initial weight loss visit. It is important for us to know your medical history well prior to creating your personalized weight loss plan.
