One of the most exciting additions to the practice using the concepts of functional and integrative medicine with the use of a ketogenic (low carbohydrate, moderate protein and high fat) diet combined with intermittent fasting. Patients are able to reduce weight and lower high blood glucose (sugar). I have personally used these techniques on myself to lose over 65 lbs and bring my blood glucose, liver enzymes and HbA1c to normal levels.
Fasting can prevent or reverse disease, address insulin sensitivity and improve heart health – it can even make your brain better! It’s amazing when you consider all the health benefits that come along with such a simple approach to healthy living.
Fasting is also one of the best tools we have when it comes to weight loss!
We don’t believe in the “eat less, move more” approach. Counting calories just doesn’t add up – ask anyone who has carefully measured everything they’ve eaten and all the hours they’ve spent on the treadmill, only to see little or no results.
The reason is simple. Counting calories doesn’t address the core issue: too much insulin and insulin resistance. In contrast, we adhere to a hormonal theory of obesity that addresses the underlying science.
When you’re fasting, your appetite shrinks and your energy shoots up. You lose weight. It’s an approach that lets your body heal and get healthy – naturally.
Dr. Ozello’s philosophy is not just to lose weight. The goal is to get healthy. Then weight loss follows with further improvement in health. The most common error in weight loss is an INCORRECT SEQUENCE. It’s not “lose weight to get healthy.” It’s “get healthy to lose weight!” This is because losing your “fat” weight is dependent on getting healthy.
We can show you how.
