The Semaglutide Program
The Hollywood weight loss secret is out in the open and can benefit a wide range of people who wish to slim down. Semaglutide is an injectable medication of a glucagon-like peptide (GLP-1) antagonist that slows gastric emptying and reduces glucose absorption. Semaglutide increases insulin production and triggers a hormone that keeps food in the stomach longer. This decreases the appetite creating a feeling of fullness that lasts longer and results in consumption of fewer calories, resulting in weight loss.
What to expect
It will result in the following:
Semaglutide is delivered in weekly injections. The process starts by completing a comprehensive questionnaire about your medical history. At your first appointment you’ll have your health reviewed to ensure you are a good candidate for Semaglutide. If you are healthy and have an appropriate body mass index you’ll get your first injection then each week return for the next injection. It is important to stay on a very repetitive weekly schedule. If you miss a weekly appointment your dosage may be decreased to minimize side effects.
Your weight loss depends upon a variety of factors. Some studies have shown up to ten percent of weight loss in twelve months. You can maximize your weight loss by adopting a robust diet and exercise program. Semaglutide decreases your appetite, but it does not speed up your metabolism. Your body fat percentage may be a better measure of Semaglutide effectiveness than your total weight.
• Injection site reactions
• Medullary Thyroid Carcinoma (MTC)
• Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia Syndrome Type 2
• Loss of facial fullness (a.k.a. Ozempic face)
The most common side effects are nausea and constipation. Eating smaller meals, avoiding high fat foods, and remaining upright after eating can decrease these side effects. Over the counter medications can be used for these side effects. Some people report not feeling as thirsty as before Semaglutide injections, which may contribute to constipation. Increasing water intake may decrease your risks of constipation.
Our Detox Protocols
Motivated weight loss
There are many reasons why weight loss can be stubborn. One of them is when the body needs to detox. For example having a liver detox can be the perfect kick start that is needed to boost weight loss or to means of maintaining weight loss results. Additionally if there are physical restrictions that make exercise difficult or impossible, this is an excellent solution.
The Core Restore® way
Ortho Molecular Detox products:
Core Restore® is a strategic system designed to safely enhance and promote the primary pathways of detoxification in the liver. The Core Restore® kit provides three active formulas – CORE Support, Alpha Base®, and PhytoCore – which function synergistically to support Phase I and Phase II pathways of liver detoxification to help neutralize environmental pollutants, hormone disruptors, unhealthy estrogen metabolites, xenoestrogens (synthetic compounds that imitate estrogen), and other harmful toxins. This powerful trio of specialized formulas provides essential micronutrients, phytonutrients, and a source of easily digested, low-allergen protein that purifies the liver and fuel optimal biotransformation.
The Core Restore® kit is an easy-to-follow, 7- or 14-day program, complete with an in-depth Patient Handbook, designed to reduce the incoming burden of toxins and help restore optimal health.
CORE Support powder enhances Phase II detoxification by providing clean protein, gentle fiber, and specific nutrients which help eliminate toxins during the seven-day detoxification program. CORE Support provides nutrients needed for Phase II detox including N-acetyl cysteine, glycine, taurine, lipoic acid, green tea extract, ellagic acid, and a unique blend of vegetable phytonutrients. The antioxidant activity of this unique blend of nutrients is protective against cell damage by free radicals and helps induce Phase II enzymes which facilitate the removal of toxins from the body and scavenge free radicals. Research has shown that glutathione and the amino acid cysteine help to regulate Phase II conjugation reactions and epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG), the major polyphenol in green tea, has also been shown to induce expression of glutathione S-transferase and glutathione peroxidase. CORE Support provides brown rice protein as a satisfying and hypoallergenic energy source, as well as 6 g of fiber per serving, essential for binding toxins for elimination.
PhytoCore is added on the third day of the Core Restore® program to stimulate Phase I activity once Phase II has been established. The specialized blend of nutrients in PhytoCore has been shown to stimulate Phase I and II biotransformation and support the body’s natural liver cleansing function during detoxification. Each capsule includes silymarin, artichoke extract, curcumin, methionine, choline, inositol, garlic, and dandelion root. These botanicals and plant extracts include phytonutrients, antioxidants and other compounds that protect plants from environmental challenges including exposure to radiation and toxins, and defend them against pests and other agents. In humans, this array of biologically active compounds has been shown to increase cellular defenses, upregulate detoxification, and protect DNA.
Alpha Base® provides a multi-nutrient foundation to ensure the liver has adequate amounts of important trace minerals and vitamins needed for the energy/nutrient intensive process of detoxification. Nutrients such as vitamin C, vitamin E, and the B vitamins are required for cytochrome P450 activity. In addition to vitamins and trace minerals, carotenoids are included to help scavenge free radicals and protect cells while toxins are removed.
Get started with full diagnostics
Before embarking on your weight loss journey we like to check each patient’s medical status. We use the Styku body scan which can perform a 3D scan in seconds using a simple turntable and 3D camera. It extracts millions of measurements with 2mm accuracy to reconstruct the body in 3D. This tool is great for assessing how much inch loss is needed as well as weight management. Styku not only measures body composition, it ranks user based on gender/age and sets suitable weight loss goals for those parameters.
Full bloodwork is also carried out to help narrow down issues and root causes. This includes an Initial Blood Panel for men & women, a Full Comprehensive Panel for men & women and a Hormone Panel for men & women. The latter is an often overlooked reason behind weight loss and gain.

What are peptides?
Peptides are naturally occurring amino acids that help build muscle, repair tissues and regulate hormones. In addition to these benefits, natural peptides can also help you lose weight. Peptide therapy uses custom-made, bio-identical, synthetic peptides to target the metabolism to promote fat loss. This means that the peptides used in treatment are identical to the ones naturally produced in the body and are metabolized as natural peptides. Peptides such as Tesamorelin and AOD – 96O4 / MOTS-C that can be used to boost energy and encourage the body to lose weight.
What it can do:
- Increase IGF – for muscle repair and development
- Decrease visceral fat – for slimmer abdominal area
- Repair & regeneration – in peripheral nerve damage
- Improve cognitive function – in mild cognitive impairment
- Improve liver enzymes – including ALT /AST

Fat burning with energy boost
Fat burning with energy boost
There is a plethora of peptides available for many different uses. They can range from immune boosting to weight loss, increased muscle and stamina to skin and hair care.
Peptides usually yield results within 3-6 months of use. In this time expect to reach the optimum benefits.
Peptide therapy works by boosting the metabolism. Metabolism is the body’s process of burning fat and converting it into energy. Metabolism slows down with age, leading to increased body fat and decreased energy levels. Boosting the metabolism can help burn more fat and control appetite, leading to weight loss. Peptides increase energy levels because they act as carriers that help glucose move quickly through the blood, delivering nutrients necessary for high energy levels.
What is it?
Nutritional counseling is a service we provide at no extra cost to all our weight management and peptide therapy clients.
We begin with bloodwork to identify all possible methods that may be hindering weight loss. Then we assess entire body composition, fat %, BMI, skeletal muscle, visceral fat and inflammation using the Styku body scan machine.
How it works
We analyze your diet and evaluate vitamin deficiencies. The goal is to heal on a cellular level and that starts with food. Three steps follow:
- Week 1: Medically supervised liver detox
- Week 2: Diet & nutrition guidance to correct malnutrition and habits
- Week 3: Continued nutrition, balanced diet and intermittent fasting schedule
Why you need advice
- It is a minefield – there is so much conflicting advice about what to take and how and when to take it
- Not all supplements are made equal – the standards used to make supplements vary and that means quality varies too
- There is misinformation – not everything you read is accurate and getting the real information is essential
- When a good diet is not enough – it is not as easy to get everything that is needed for optimal nutrition, just from food
- Too much of a good thing – can actually be bad for you so knowing your dosages is key
