Strategies

A healthy weight
can look like lots of things.

But what's important is what it looks like to you.

Though it may have been easier to lose weight when you were younger, that doesn't mean it's impossible now. By taking into account a full understanding of your health and assessing any underlying conditions, we can determine what may be standing in the way between you and your weight goals.

The following are just a few of the ways we can work together to achieve your weight goals:

Dietary guidance

Conventional diets have roughly a 5% success rate because it really is not as simple as calories in must be less than or equal to calories out. With a holistic approach to weight loss, we start by laying down a healthy foundation for successful weight loss and maintenance by addressing any hormonal imbalances, allergies or sensitivities and focus on improving general health.

Then, we look at what you will eat and how you eat it. The diet is based on the use of real foods and is in protein with very minimal carbohydrates. The meals are very sustainable and many people feel great on this type of diet. You will learn how to eat and how to maintain your new weight, unlike many other diets. It is not restrictive and you should NOT feel hungry during the weight-loss period at all. The treatment is really tailored to your individual needs.

Nutrient testing

Hormone balancing

Hormonal health is right up there with diet and exercise when it comes to overall health.

In fact, if you're experiencing hot flashes and/or night sweats, weight gain and bloating, difficulty sleeping, decreased libido, hair loss, mood swings, forgetfulness, foggy brain, muscle aches and pains, breast tenderness, painful periods, migraine headaches, fatigue, anxiety/panic, depression, abnormal hair growth, missed or irregular cycles, infertility, repeat miscarriages, fibroids, endometriosis, or ovarian cysts, these common symptoms may indicate it's worth investigating your hormone levels for answers.

Medication managment

Sometimes we turn to medications to initiate weight loss while working on diet and exercise. Once we get the metabolism moving in the right direction we are able to take you off the medication and maintain loss and continue moving toward a healthy weight.

B12/MIC injections (lipotropic)

Lipo-B is an injection of vitamins and amino acids that are essential for your health and health of your liver. Your liver is the organ responsible for removing fat and toxins from your body, so if it is healthier, you’re healthier.

Lipo-B shots can have a number of other benefits. If you use the Lipo-B shot in conjunction with regular exercise and a healthy diet, the benefits can be substantial.

  • Increase in metabolism
  • Boost Energy
  • Burn fat and maintain muscle tone
  • Support their immune system
  • Increase stamina

Lipo-B shots are designed to aid in your general wellness.

Glutathione IV

Environmental toxins and poor diet can have serious consequences for weight loss and overall wellness.

Research suggests that stubborn belly fat and obesity may be caused by toxins and free radicals produced by the body following the heavy intake of sugar and carbohydrates. The uncontrolled buildup of toxins leads to a condition where the body stores more fat and uses fewer calories making weight loss more difficult. Exercise and a healthy diet may not be sufficient to offset high levels of toxicity. Diet products, diet pills, and artificial sweeteners work against you by adding more toxins into the mix.

Glutathione injections along with lipotropic injections are fat-burning antioxidants that help to clear toxins from the body while enhancing energy, improving cardio function, enhancing metabolism, hormone balancing, and enhanced mental clarity and concentration.

My experience was fantastic.

The appointment was quick and expedient. The Dr. Schulz was kind, courteous, helpful, and down to earth. I would recommend her to all my friends and family.

I have never had a relationship with a doctor like I have with her.

Dr. Alison has been my doctor for about 7 years now. I have never had a relationship with a doctor like I have with her. The amount of attention and support she provides me is unheard of and has made a tremendous difference in my health and quality of life. Dr. Alison’s experience and knowledge always gives me peace of mind and she has given me my health back through some very difficult obstacles ranging from GI issues to thyroid disease and hormone imbalance. I never thought I could have a doctor that cares as much as her and that I can trust so much.

I had another great appointment with Dr. Schulz!

I feel like she really works with you to get to the bottom of what is going on with your body. Also, the set up she has with the patient portal online which allows you to see your lab results is fantastic!

I would highly recommend doctor Allison Schulz.

I had a problem with my legs for almost 4 years. I went to see doctor Allison and within 3 weeks, my issue was gone, I will definitely go back to doctor Schulz for medical issues.
- Paul A.

I always look forward to my appointments with Dr. Alison Schulz.

She is very down to earth. I feel like I could talk to her about anything. She always provides solutions to my problems, and cures for my ailments. I wouldn't go anywhere else.
- Angela J.

I truly enjoyed my appointment.

The location was not difficult to find and the environment was very homey which made my experience comfortable. I experienced very little discomfort with the procedure and the healing process has been amazing thus far. Thanks again! I will definitely be recommending others to come see you.

Having Dr. Alison as my doctor has been very refreshing!

I’ve dealt with chronic pain my entire life and I have never felt like I was being taken seriously. Alison is a great listener and I feel like she’s willing to work with me and try new things that better fit my needs.

- Troy H.

After being used to the Kaiser Permanente system for my health needs, it was so amazingly refreshing to experience a visit with Dr. Alison Schulz.

First, she made me feel very comfortable and relaxed in her presence. Dr. Shultz is a wealth of knowledge and I felt like the health issues I wished to address were given her complete care and attention. There was no rushed atmosphere at all and the time given was very sufficient in discussing each aspect of what was being addressed. It is a wonderful feeling to finally think that I have a doctor who truly cares and has the knowledge to treat me with the highest natural medicine available. After hearing so many good things about Dr. Schultz from a very good friend of mine who has been seeing her for 7 years, I am so thankful I stepped outside my comfort zone and made an appointment with her!
- John H.

Even though the Dr. had been over-booked at my appointment time, she still seemed very concerned about my comfort & needs before, during, & after the appointment.

I was able to have a procedure done that I have been waiting for my whole life, but had not done yet because I couldn't rationalize spending the money for cosmetic purposes, but even without insurance, I didn't break the checkbook with Dr. Shultz. I am very pleased with the results & felt very well-taken care-of while under Dr. Shultz's care.
- Mel R.

I had a super lovely experience.

The whole thing was quick and painless. You were professional and pleasant. Also, I'm happy I found somewhere with affordable prices.
- Josh H.

I really appreciated your open communication style and the time you took to create a treatment plan with me.

I felt genuinely heard and I'm excited to finally have new tools to manage (and hopefully solve) my health issues. Thank you for addressing all my questions!
