Weight Loss

Weight LossWeight Loss is an ever growing problem for many individuals.  At the Natural Medicine Clinic in Spartanburg, we know that weight loss is a very real issue and a real struggle for many individuals.  The problem of overweight and obesity today is now a national epidemic. Today in the United States, 67% of adults aged 20 years and over are overweight or obese. Of that figure, at least 34% are obese. At least 18% of children ages 12-19 are overweight, and 15% of children ages 6 – 11 years are overweight. Fully 11% of children ages 2-5 are overweight. These are astounding statistics, and unfortunately, are only getting worse.

At the Natural Medicine Clinic, we realize that weight and obesity are the results of negative eating habits, stress, and lifestyle patterns advanced and reinforced by massive marketing from the food industry, poor quality processed foods, further reinforced by a sedentary lifestyle. This condition now plagues millions of Americans from one end of the nation to the other, the result of which is multiple disease entities like cardiovascular disease, hypertension, stroke, cancer and diabetes.

No one wants to talk about the REAL causes of weight gain and obesity. Nor do they know the science based solutions to weight loss.

Our Philosophy
Our aim at the Natural Medicine Clinic here in Spartanburg and the surrounding Upstate in South Carolina is to address weight loss by looking at the clinical needs of those affected by this unnatural process. We do this through the use of natural measures: lifestyle changes, counseling, natural therapies, clinical nutrition, and exercise. We will also effect positive changes by inculcating awareness, behavioral modification, and education. In doing so, we can impact the lives of adults and children affected by this social disorder of overweight and obesity, now a public health problem manifesting in epidemic proportions. It is our hope to transform America from its present state of ill health due to the causes mentioned above, not only in this generation but in generations to come – to achieve a greater state of health and well-being and thus a higher quality of life.

Our Solution
In order to address weight loss, we utilize a scientific medical system from which we determine diet, exercise, stress reduction and balancing biochemistry to address your physiological imbalance and manifestation of overweight or obesity. As part of this process, we perform various forms of testing such as physical examination, body composition analysis and blood chemistries.

We look at your bio-individuality, physiology, and more specifically your endocrine system, and their effects on your metabolism. As a result, diet, exercise, stress reduction and nutraceuticals are determined based on your specific metabolic body type. This process is monitored and directed by a health care professional.
