Do you find it harder than ever to lose those stubborn pounds even though you are strict with your diet and working out harder than ever?
Are you feeling totally stressed out because you see the scale increasing steadily... unable to make it stop?
Are you doing all the right things... yet still don't see the results you're expecting – all while your friends look amazing with hardly any effort at all?
Are you starting to feel like your body is broken... and completely discouraged, just wishing you could go back to those days when maintaining your weight was more effortless?
Take this short quiz to find the REAL reason for weight loss resistance and what's holding you back!
Patients rarely associate weight gain or weight loss resistance with poor gut health or an undiagnosed food intolerance – but if your microbiome or gut lining are out of whack, this can derail your metabolism in multiple ways. Gut imbalances like bacterial infections, (such as SIBO), food intolerances and conditions like leaky gut can cause weight gain and block your body's ability to shed those pesky pounds. Gut imbalances can also throw your hormones off, including thyroid and insulin function.
Sometimes, slow thyroid function could actually be to blame for weight gain or inability to lose weight. We always explore if nutrient deficiencies could be slowing down your thyroid – key for your energy levels and metabolism. People think their food choices cover all the bases with their nutrition, but even healthy eaters often suffer from nutritional deficiencies. Addressing nutrient deficiencies correctly is one of the easiest way to restore your metabolism and support your thyroid
Your body's hormone system plays a huge role in weight maintenance, and hormone imbalances are frequently the root cause why diet and exercise alone don't move the needle with your weight loss. This may be the reason why some diet & exercise plans are working for your friends, but not for you! Insulin resistance is a common hormone imbalance that makes weight loss impossible – leaving you feeling exhausted and often "hangry". Stressed out adrenals, low thyroid, progesterone and estrogen levels can also be to blame.
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.
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.
Helping people live a more balanced & healthier life isn't just our job, it's our passion! We take our commitment to lifelong, optimal health + wellness very seriously... incorporating the latest scientific advances and dedicated to the very best care possible.
We focus on giving you the care you need, not the care sanctioned by health insurance – which is why our programs include longer appointment times, more communication, more advanced testing and guidance on lifestyle factors that can truly make or break your health.
We like to think of ourselves as your trusted partner towards a healthier, more resilient life – supporting you every step of the way, because we know what's possible when you have the right guide by your side!
If you haven't found the answers you've been looking for with traditional medicine and still feel unheard, you are in the right place! We're excited to make you our next success story, so let's take the first step with the quiz :)
"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."
