Lufkin Health and Wellness Clinic offers medically supervised weight loss wellness programs, customized to fit each person's unique needs. Our expert weight loss Dr. Alexander Orlov, D.O., P.A. – Medical Director work with each patient individually to reach their specific weight loss goals.
Do you ever notice how some people have no trouble with weight loss, while others simply cannot seem to lose weight? Each person has a different propensity to gain or lose weight, and as such, Austin Wellness Clinic treats each case on an individual basis to address the factors that are specifically affecting a person's weight issues.
At Lufkin Health and Wellness Clinic, our goal is to help you reach optimal health and lose weight in the process. We take a whole person approach to weight loss. Being overweight is simply a symptom of an underlying problem. With that in mind, our doctors work to eliminate the cause of weight gain through medical testing and lifestyle improvements, and thus alleviate your symptoms, producing weight loss as a byproduct of optimal health.
When a person's weight fluctuates or they become obese, and unable to lose weight, it is important to look at all of the underlying issues contributing to the condition. Often, weight gain can be attributed to a multitude of factors, including hormone imbalance, food allergies, thyroid imbalance, toxicity, nutritional deficiency, maladaptive lifestyle, undiagnosed disease, and many more. Weight is a biomarker of health – an outer symptom that indicates an underlying imbalance.
Lufkin Health and Wellness Clinic works with you to get to the root of the problem in a medically supervised environment, which will not only facilitate weight loss, but create a more vital and healthy you.
First, Lufkin Health and Wellness Clinic invites you to come in for a free consultation. During this time you will meet with one of the doctors to review your symptoms, answer any questions about our programs, and outline an action plan based on your weight loss goals and individual needs.
Unlike many weight loss programs out there, Austin Wellness Clinic offers entirely medically supervised programs. This means that every time you come in, you will visit with either one of our doctors, or our physicians' assistant, to ensure that your goals are being met.
One of the greatest reasons our weight loss programs are so much more effective than others is our partnership with our patients. During the course of your program, you will see one of our practitioners between nine and twelve times to check your progress, and make adjustments as needed. We listen to your goals and work hand in hand with you to help you lose weight fast, and most importantly, safely.
At Lufkin Health and Wellness Clinic, we help people learn how to lose weight fast and keep it off. That's why our programs include nutritional counseling to help you discover the best habits for your health. Classes are taught by Dr. Vincent Bellonzi, DC, who is a Certified Clinical Nutritionist, and has been helping people improve their lifestyles for over 20 years.
Lufkin Health and Wellness Clinic 's weight loss programs include an array of advanced testing including metabolic testing, blood chemistry evaluation, nutrient balance testing, nutrigenomic testing, food allergy testing, solaris, and more. The types of testing you receive will be based on the program that best fits your specific needs.
Find out more about each of these tests.
Hormones play a key factor in weight gain, and Lufkin Health and Wellness Clinic works to balance your hormones by testing thyroid function, and levels of progesterone, estrodiol, testosterone, vitamin D, and more. Based on your symptoms and initial test results, additional testing may be performed along with more in depth bioidentical hormone replacement therapy.
In addition to the hCG shots, patients receive amino acid and Vitamin B12 injections to help mobilize fat and accelerate weight loss.
All patients are recommended to do a guided cleanse to help jumpstart the body's natural detoxification mechanisms. Many people experience rapid weight loss before they even begin the hCG shots
