Weight Loss Programs

Our practice is proudly considered to be among the fastest growing medical weight loss centers in New England due to our unique naturopathic approach to weight management and highly innovative treatment protocols.  We are pleased to be the FIRST practice to bring the extremely effective Simeons Weight Loss Program to New Hampshire.  This weight loss method has been gaining press, and similar protocols have been featured this year on the Dr. Oz Show.  Under medical supervision, our patients are given the support needed to reach their weight loss goals.  We have worked with patients who suffer from all degrees of abnormal weight gain; seeking anywhere from 10+lbs to over 100+ lbs loss, therefore we have several options to meet each individual’s specific needs.

Our most popular weight loss program is the Simeons Weight Loss Protocol, due to the rapid results achieved.  For many of our patients, it is the only program that has worked for them and it can be life-changing. We recommend that you contact our office for a free 15 minute consult to gather more information and learn if this program could work for you.

What makes the Simeons Weight Loss Protocol different than other weight loss programs?

Our protocol involves a combination of various herbal, diet, and naturopathic therapies to mobilize abnormal fat stores.  These combined treatments reduce hunger and food cravings- making it possible for patients to follow a specific low-calorie whole-foods diet for 20, 30, or 40-day cycles at a time.  This combination allows our patients to lose weight at a much faster rate than can be achieved with most other diet programs.

Other Benefits:

  • Many of our patients report that it’s easier than ever to maintain their weight loss and that their metabolism seems renewed upon completion of our program.
  • Weekly sessions combined with our treatment can help to conquer bad habits- including nighttime eating, emotional eating, and overeating.
  • With each medically supervised weight loss round, we must limit the weight loss to 40 lbs maximum per cycle.  We will discontinue treatment at the 40-day mark, or once a patient has reached 40lbs loss; whichever comes first.  Additional cycles can be done with a 6-week break in-between.

How does Simeons Protocol work?

Our therapies will assist with the release of abnormal fat into circulation so it may be burned up for energy.   On this protocol, it has been suggested that up to 4,000 calories of fat can be released into the blood stream daily.  With a constant source of fat and energy circulating in the blood stream, we bypass the hunger response.  In this sense, the brain is tricked into thinking the body has just eaten a full meal, allowing the patient to feel satiated with smaller amounts of food.  We use the combined therapies to target “trouble areas” of the body such as the hard to reach abdominal belly fat and the thighs.  The whole-foods diet is based on proteins, vegetables and fruits, and our patients are often surprised at the level of satisfaction and satiation they feel without eating grains, sugar, cheese, and other foods that we often rely upon to feel full.

What is the hypothalamus?

 The therapies used in our Simeons protocol are thought to positively affect the hypothalamus gland, which is responsible for many functions like controlling hunger, regulation of the rate at which your body burns are stores fat for energy, and regulating hormones.

Is the Simeons Protocol considered safe?

If the patient has been screened properly and is being medically supervised, there are typically little to no side-effects reported with minimal risk involved.  In fact, most patients report feeling much better overall while on the program!  It has been used on many patients since the 1950′s with little risk involved, however the discovery of this weight loss protocol is still fairly recent and there is still more learn.

Will the weight stay off?

You may have experienced the diet failure cycle yourself–the unhealthy yo-yo effect of losing a little bit of weight, only to gain back even more. Simeon’s weight loss plan is helping dieters break this cycle.  We believe it to have a  “resetting effect” on the brain so that the body is more aware of when it is full.  The program is based on the idea that being overweight is a result of the brain not relaying the proper message to the stomach- “I’m full and have enough stored fat to stop eating” combined with a slow metabolism.  Most patients report long-lasting weight loss when following a typical healthy diet and lifestyle plan during maintenance.

Do I need to work out and exercise while on the program?

While patients are on the program, they are asked NOT to exercise until a normal caloric intake has resumed.  Patients are encouraged to resume a workout schedule after the program is complete. Light toning such as Pilates or a 20-minute walks are acceptable. However, with too much exercise, the patient may become uncomfortably hungry which may interfere with their success.

What does the program include?

  • Initial medical clearance examination with the doctor
  • Medical supervision and weight loss coaching throughout the program
  • Program training, workbook, & cookbook
  • Weekly follow-up visits are encouraged, and are included in the program fee
  • Weekly “Slim Shot” injections (in-office vitamin injection used to accelerate fat loss)
  • All of the supplies and training are provided for the patient to perform at-home injections of our natural fat-burning protocol.  This is done with a very small needle the size of an eyelash.  Other forms such as nasal sprays, creams, and oral pills may also be used, however they may not be as effective.  We have the most success with injections and consider them the “gold-standard”.
  • Any laboratory tests or additional supplement/medication recommendations may not be included in cost, however depending on the individual’s insurance or flex spending/health savings account guidelines, patient’s may be reimbursed for our program.  Please contact your insurance or HSA to learn more about your policy guidelines for coverage.

Disclaimer: The FDA has not approved this protocol for weight loss, however an experienced physician may prescribe this protocol for an unapproved medical purpose or “off-label” use.  Allowing physicians professional discretion to prescribe this treatment for obesity or for patient weight loss is not based upon any governmental determination that the treatment is effective for such use. Although the average weight loss has been observed to be between 1/2 and 1 lb per day, weight loss may vary based on a number of individual factors (including but not limited to: patient compliance, interfering substances/medications, and the unique physiology of the person), therefore we offer no set guaranteed results.
