What is Obesity?
o·be·si·ty | /ōˈbēsədē/
a chronic, relapsing, multifactorial, neurobehavioral disease, wherein an increase in body fat promotes adipose tissue or dysfunction and abnormal fat mass physical forces, resulting in adverse metabolic, biomechanical, and psychosocial health consequences.
–Obesity Medical Association
That was our first reaction to the definition of obesity, too.
In a nutshell, obesity is a potentially life-long disease that can and will come back if not properly treated. Obesity affects every individual uniquely, and must be treated that way. One solution does not fit all.
That might sound daunting, but there’s some great news hidden in there! Diseases can be treated, and obesity is no exception! With proper medical treatment, obesity does not need to be a lifelong disease that keeps coming back. With the proper approach, you can achieve the long-term results you want!
Shed the stigma. Treat the disease.
EVIDENCE BASED & INDIVIDUALLY TAILORED
MEDICAL WEIGHT MANAGEMENT
So, how do we treat obesity?
Now that it’s been established that Obesity is a disease that affects each individual uniquely, let’s talk about how we are going to treat it that way. At Vitalis Metabolic Health, our approach is always going to be rooted in evidence based & individually tailored medical weight management. That means we won’t be injecting you with unproven hormones that make you GAIN more weight in the long run. We won’t be putting you on a pill that is falsely advertised as able to fix everything. Why? Because, while other companies will try to tell you these things work, the truth is the evidence proves that they simply don’t!
Study after study (after study) shows that by focusing on four primary areas—what we call our “four pillars of care”—you can, and will, see long-term results.
