Why Can't I Lose Weight?
Many patients come into our office and state that they just can't lose weight on their own. They may blame their age or genetics, but the culprit maybe be a body imbalance. We will do our best to figure out the metabolic block that is causing this plateau or inability to lose weight. There are many disorders and biological factors that can interfere with weight loss including:
- Decreased thyroid hormone levels
- Food sensitivities and allergies
- Unpredictable blood sugar levels
- Elevated cortisol levels
- Unbalanced hormone levels
- Abnormal quantities of fat within the liver
- Inconsistent bowel movements
- Impaired colon health
- Insulin resistance
"Im puzzled by some of the negative reviews. Staff is awesome and I lost 4 pounds overnight the very first day. They do answer the phone and they do return calls. I'm not sure why these treatments did not work for some people because they certainly are working for me. I think this is a great value and plan on buying more treatments. If you follow the directions you should see results"- L.O. / Google / Oct 02, 2016

How Does It Work?
By identifying where a metabolic block exists and correcting it, our patients are able to lose weight like never before, and we reprogram their metabolism to operate as it was intended.
When you come in for a free consultation to discuss your weight loss options, we can help you distinguish if your body is presently capable of losing weight, and assessing the maximum amount of fat you need to lose so that you can realize maximum results. We also perform a body mass index (BMI) to assess body mass and fat percentage. Blood panels and sensitivity testing will be performed on patients expressing the need. Musculoskeletal health will also be examined. Many patients may not be aware that they have metabolic blocks, which interfere in their ability to lose fat or weight. This is the main reason we have the initial medical weight loss and metabolic assessment before beginning a Zerona Laser treatment regimen.
Diet & Supplements
Your Zerona Laser weight loss treatments are maximized with the addition of our body detoxification, rejuvenation program, and Apex Energetics™ Supplements. The detox program is a series of supplements designed to clear your body of toxins and waste buildup, and is designed to stimulate your lymphatic system and promote healthy liver and gallbladder function. It is imperative that the liver is in top working condition before we start your Zerona Laser treatment program. When patients do this detox a week before the laser treatment, it will allow the body to cleanse itself, enabling it to take on the excess fat which will soon be released. Your body will be changing from the inside out.
We believe that the Zerona Laser treatment is the catalyst that most weight loss programs are lacking. The Zerona is low level laser that stimulates fat cells to emulsify (liquefy) the fat within the cell. The liquefied fat moves from inside the cell (through a temporary pore formed in the cell membrane by the laser) to outside the cell to be absorbed by the lymphatic system. This results in millions of fat cells becoming smaller so inches are reduced off the waist, hips, and thighs. The fat cells are not injured in any way by this process. Thus, this treatment leaves the endocrine system intact and healthy.
The Zerona Laser treatment is a completely painless, 40-minute session. The Physician or Medical Technician will position the laser at the desired areas of the body, and then will step out for 20 minutes while the front of your body is treated, and then will return to reset for the backside of your body for an additional 20 minutes. You can then return to your day without any recovery time.
Our weight loss protocol has successfully helped more than 2,000 patients trim off inches, better their health, lose weight, and keep it off. Aside from the supplements, we provide a specially designed diet. As a Zerona Laser patient, you will notice inch loss as well as pound loss. Zerona Laser treatments will shrink your area of concern, and you will see a significant difference on the scale.
One of the ways to get the most out of your Zerona treatment is to follow a sensible diet. We understand the difficulties of dieting, and we offer some alternatives. During your treatment period especially, it is imperative that your diet is as low in fat as possible. You don’t want to be introducing high-fat foods into your body when your liver should be working on the fat that is already there! You will be asking your liver to process 2 – 3 more times the fat than normal while having the Zerona laser performed. For successful weight loss, patient's need to alter their fat intake to aid the liver.
Of course, some fat in your diet is necessary. Mono-unsaturated fat is the best kind because it can actually help keep your arteries clean. Here is a list of our favorite snacks, all of which can be part of a sensible diet:
- Plain organic rice cakes or celery, spread with almond butter
- Carrots dipped in hummus
- Dried apricots or prunes
- Rice chips and salsa, organic guacamole, or lard-free bean dip
- Fresh-popped, unbuttered popcorn sprinkled with sea salt
- Raw almonds, cashews, peanuts
- Trail mixes (gluten and yogurt free)
- Rice crackers spread with all-natural fruit preserves
- Baked sweet potato chips
- Bananas dipped in peanut butter
- Roasted whole chickpeas
- Dairy-free frozen sorbet
Moderation is the name of the game, and these snacks are healthy choices that will help get you from one meal to the next. Following a healthy diet after your Zerona Laser program is key to ensuring you can enjoy your new sculpted body long after your treatment ends.
