Our Nurse Practitioner Lisa can utilize a variety of tools to help assess your general health and provide a plan designed to promote quality of life, longevity, and prevent disease. Using a root cause approach, she can work with you to address factors such as environmental exposures, diet, genetics, and existing medical conditions that may be working against you. 

There is no one-size-fits-all formula, but most patients benefit from some up-front lab testing to identify underlying deficiencies, sources of inflammation, or imbalances that can be corrected. Some labs can be accessed through local laboratories via traditional blood draw, while others are available in kits requiring saliva, urine or stool collection that can performed in the privacy of your own home and sent directly to a remote lab for processing. 

Treatment plans vary greatly, and may include suggested changes to medications, adding oral, injectable, or nutritive supplements, or lifestyle changes involving diet, activity, or products that you use that could be inadvertently exposing you to toxins or altering your hormone status. 

Testing costs vary. Some tests may be covered by your medical insurance but many require an out-of-pocket expense which may be as low as $130 or as high as $1500, depending on what is being evaluated.

Integrative medical evaluation requires time and careful consideration, and you may be asked for copies of medical records if relevant to ensure that your care is safe and thorough. This type of evaluation and treatment is very personalized and involved. Your first intake visit will cost $250, and subsequent visits for follow-up planning and check-ins are charged based on length of visit, from $75-$125.  This care is not a substitution for your primary health care, but is designed to promote your overall wellness and help you achieve a happier, healthier, and more comfortable life. 

Weight Loss Management Q&A

What is weight loss management?

Weight loss management is a personalized plan designed by the health care providers at Bright Wellness. With a Nurse Practitioner, certified dietician, personal health coach, and an exercise consultant the team can help identify lifestyle habits, dietary patterns, and underlying medical conditions that may interfere with your ability to lose weight.

The team understands that weight management means more than slimming your waistline. Carrying extra weight can impact your physical, emotional, and cognitive function. An individualized plan can help you stay on track and achieve your weight loss goals.

Why should I consider weight loss management?

If you have a body mass index (BMI) of 24.9 or higher, losing even 5% of your weight can significantly improve your health. Carrying excess weight puts stress on your body, particularly on your cardiovascular system. Modest weight loss offers many health benefits, such as:

  • Lower cholesterol and triglycerides
  • Reduced blood pressure
  • Higher energy levels
  • Improved mobility
  • Reduced joint pain
  • Better sleep quality
  • Boosted mood
  • Lower risk of heart disease
  • Higher libido

While fad diets may be attractive for short-term weight loss, they usually aren’t sustainable. Moderate, consistent weight loss can help you reach a healthy BMI that you can maintain in the long term.

What does weight loss management include?

At Bright Wellness, every weight loss management plan is unique. The nutrition experts work with you to design a plan that helps boost your metabolism and allows you to maintain sustainable weight loss. 

If you’re interested in weight loss management, visit Bright Wellness for a consultation. This initial visit gives the team an opportunity to get to know you and your lifestyle habits. 

After recording your height and weight and checking your vitals (blood pressure, temperature, and respiration rate), the team reviews your medical history. Next, Lisa, the Nurse Practitioner, will perform a comprehensive physical exam. She will order bloodwork, saliva or urine tests to evaluate your hormones and blood sugar levels and to detect signs of underlying diseases. 

Once they have the necessary information, the team can create a step-by-step weight loss plan that focuses on diet and lifestyle changes for long-term success in addition to weekly “skinny shots” and other medications that may help you reach your short-term goals.
