Is your child overweight? Are you tired of their tears, your concern and everyone’s frustration about the confusing information published on weight loss?
At Progressive Medical Center, we don’t promote fad diets, harmful supplements, or unrealistic calorie-restriction diets for adults, and they certainly are not appropriate for children. Instead, we test, we teach and we follow your child’s progress and share their success!
We are interested in balancing all the systems in the body to optimize metabolism. With skyrocketing rates of type 2 diabetes, obesity, heart disease, and high blood pressure, now is the time to thwart a life heavy with the threat of chronic disease.
The reason your child may be struggling to lose weight may be tied to more than just their diet or exercise patterns. Progressive Medical Center uses a comprehensive approach to address the underlying causes of weight gain. We design a specialized program that ensures your child’s optimal nutrition, respects upcoming adolescent hormones and builds a firm foundation for a healthy metabolism.
We see many of the following reasons that people are unable to shed unhealthy pounds:
Since not all people experience weight gain for the same reasons, that’s why we run sophisticated diagnostic testing to help us understand a child’s unique biochemistry. Comprehensive laboratory evaluations at the cellular and metabolic level allow us to see inside the body- more so than other common laboratory tests. These test results, in conjunction with details of your child’s health and lifestyle history, help your practitioner design an effective, customized treatment plan.
But what is the optimum healthy diet for your child? You might be surprised. Progressive Medical Center practitioners have science-based and health-based recommendations about healthy food choices that may not match up with advice you’ve heard in magazines or on television. Progressive Medical Center has experienced registered dietitians who tailor the correct combination of foods that will be most beneficial to your growing child.
If your child is struggling with obesity, let us help you help them get on the road toward a healthier future!
