Weight Loss Q & A

Why is weight loss important?

When it comes to health and wellness, getting to and maintaining a healthy weight is one of the most important things you can do. 

Being overweight or obese places extra strain on your body and increases your risk of many chronic diseases, even if you have no other risk factors. Weight loss is important because it:

  • Reduces your risk of heart disease and diabetes
  • Lowers blood pressure, blood sugar, and cholesterol levels
  • Decreases joint pain
  • Improves sleep
  • Boosts your self-esteem
  • Gives you more energy

Dr. Thompson at Southeastern Institute for Restorative Medicine takes a proactive approach to medicine and sees weight loss as a tool to restore your health and reverse the signs of aging. 

He understands the struggles you face when it comes to losing those unwanted pounds, which is why he offers a medical weight-loss program to help you achieve your weight goals and live a healthy, happy, long life. 

Am I a good candidate for a medical weight-loss program?

What can I expect from a medical weight-loss program?

The reason you fail to lose the weight and keep it off following commercial weight-loss programs is that they don’t consider your specific needs.
