This report outlines 3 things you may not know about weight loss resistance.
Unfortunately, most medical providers don’t know that weight loss resistance can even be an issue and that it should be addressed! There are also three major causes that aren't on their radar.
Medical providers all over the world are telling patients suffering from weight loss resistance that “your labs are normal” or “you're stressed or just getting older.”
They are unsure how to help patients who just can't lose weight no matter what they do... and people feel unheard when their doctor can't help them find a solution.
WHY common medical advice often fails to address weight loss resistance and why eating less and working out more won't help
HOW to recognize common signs & symptoms of weight loss resistance
HOW to find and choose the right healthcare provider to help you finally lose the weight and keep it off
WHICH testing is best for identifying the root causes of weight loss resistance and what's missing from the testing you may have already had
WHAT you need to know about resetting your metabolism and avoiding weight loss resistance in the future so that you can shed those pounds more effortlessly and keep them off for good
Meet Shilpa Sayana, MD
I became interested in a holistic approach to medicine that attempts to figure out the root cause of illness after I was diagnosed with a tumor that thankfully turned out to be harmless.
Being trained in a western medicine framework I underwent additional training on “root cause medicine” and alternative ways of preventing disease and illness. I love spending time with patients and figuring out what is the true root cause that may have triggered their symptoms.
At Sayana Medical and Wellness Center, we believe in a partnership with our patients , where we can dig deeper and figure out what is happening with their bodies/minds and make better informed choices to improve their health and wellbeing. We provide State-of-the-art tests that can help you understand what your body is saying. We hope to inspire you to make small but important changes to your lifestyle. And we would like to be your guide in helping you decide between what healing tools are best for you both – medicinal and natural options.
Our mission is to find and resolve the root cause of your symptoms so you can get well and love the way you feel.
On top of all the pressures of everyday life, people beat themselves up because they can't lose weight. They feel like "something is wrong with them" just because they can't lose weight even when they are putting in all the effort day in and day out. It's time to change that!
Most people are unaware of gut, nutritional, or hormonal imbalances that are blocking their ability to maintain a healthy weight. They oftentimes experience other symptoms as well... such as low moods, crankiness, sleep issues and cravings that are out of control due to these imbalances.
Something Is Off
It could be a health imbalance that's to blame for their weight loss woes. Unfortunately, they have already seen their doctor who tells them "your labs are fine" or "you're just stressed or getting older" – when in fact their doctor doesn't have the training or know-how to deal with the "less obvious" causes of weight gain.
"I am a holistic dentist, and I started going to Dr. Sayana to optimize my health. I was really impressed with her two hour long consultation, where she went in depth into my medical history, including my family’s history. She is a caring, compassionate doctor, who is extremely knowledgeable, and really knows how to combine Functional Medicine with lifestyle changes and dietary supplements, to achieve the best results in your health. She also offers services like IV nutrition, which I believe are hugely beneficial one I’m feeling drained. I highly recommend her office."
"Dr. Sayana and Nurse Sara have been my health care providers for a few years. They have supported me through Covid (twice!), hormonal changes, and terrible fatigue, all through the use of supplements and being very supportive of a low stress, healthy lifestyle. They are thorough and really listen to your symptoms. They take a holistic approach, and help you identify the root cause of your symptoms. I am very happy to have them as my primary care team"
"At Sayana medical center Doctors are very dedicated, caring and highly educated. They help patients over and beyond expectations. Thank you Dr. Sayana for having such a great healthcare medical center along with other Doctors treating patients like your own family. Also your staff are always courteous and helpful to patients."
