Medical Weight Loss Management Q&A

by Shera Raisen, MD

What will the weight loss management program entail?

When working to lose excess weight, Dr. Raisen helps patients by developing a program designed to help the body cleanse itself, speed metabolism, and increase fat burning. A weight loss management program can include:weight loss

  • Body Impedance Analysis test - Nutritionist tests what is keeping the body from functioning at its best.
  • Detox dietary plans and treatments - This can include herbs which help the liver burn extra fat and infrared blankets which detox fat, relax muscles, and are also good for the skin. These treatments are conducted in a relaxing, spa-like atmosphere and last about 15 to 45 minutes.
  • B12 injections
  • Green Coffee Extract supplements

What is important about detoxification?

Detoxification is one of the most crucial and metabolically challenging functions of the human physiology. The toxic burden of petrochemical toxins and mercury unloaded into the environment each year, in addition to medications, has put a great deal of stress on the body’s ability to cleanse itself. Dr. Raisen prescribes a detoxification diet in combination with supplemental powdered protein and vitamin drinks, a low-allergy diet, and liver cleansing herbs for the initial 10 or 28 days of the program. The body’s detoxification process is encouraged with enzymes found in phytonutrients, amino acids, vitamins, and minerals which will be incorporated in the diet program. Identifying heavy metal toxicity through advanced testing, especially mercury and lead, is another important aspect of returning the body to a healthy weight.

What is the mind/body balance?

The mind is a part of the body, and when it is functioning better, the body can perform better. Dr. Raisen works with each of her patients to create a self-care and stress management aspect of the program which can help patients remain dedicated to the process and avoid feeling discouraged. Exercise, yoga, meditation, and other balancing activities help patients to learn to trust in the healing process and lessen stress which can have an adverse impact on weight and overall health. By combining detoxification and nutritional adjustments with healthy exercise and mental support, weight loss can be achieved and the body will return to a state where it no longer harbors the chemicals and toxins which lead to weight gain and lasting illness.
