We understand that a woman’s weight not only plays a critical role in her physical health, but it also influences her emotional wellbeing. Some struggle to lose weight, and others struggle to gain it. Either way, you don’t have to struggle alone. Our weight management specialists collaborate with you to put a plan in place so you can work toward being the best, healthiest version of yourself. Along the way, we celebrate women’s unique bodies and encourage positive body images. Weight management counseling provides the power of medical guidance with nutritional and behavioral support so that you can achieve your best possible health.
The first step in creating your weight management program is to conduct an initial screening. This is a thorough medical exam that includes a review of your medical history, a physical exam with your physician, bloodwork, and often an EKG test. This screening provides a complete clinical work-up, so that we have a full, in-depth understanding of your current state.
Next, we work with you to evaluate and understand your eating behaviors, patterns, and lifestyle habits and how they may be affecting your weight. You’ll work with our nutritional counselors to ensure that your diet includes the right mix of nutrients for you. As you make progress, we will establish a plan for ongoing medical monitoring with your provider so you can reach your goals safely. At some Axia Women’s Health centers, we offer weekly classes and support groups, where you can find perspective and encouragement. By working together, we can create a safe, approachable pathway toward a healthier you.
It only takes a few refreshes of your inbox to marvel at how many weight control options are out there. But not all of them lead down the healthiest path. When you develop a weight management plan with Axia Women’s Health, you can feel good about the fact that you’re taking a safe, effective, non-hormonal, and non-medicinal approach to weight management. You have the support of everyone in our connected, caring, progressive network rooting for the core idea that women deserve more. And we work hard to deliver that to you in every way, especially by surrounding you with more positive, more wholesome, and more approachable support.
Our range of specialists is vast, and our capabilities are wide. We focus on a diversity of needs throughout the women’s healthcare spectrum so that we can provide you with comprehensive, connected support throughout every stage of life.
