There are very few people where weight loss, and in some cases weight gain, is not the motivation behind their health endeavors. Typically associated with struggle, it is no wonder that weight management has sparked an industry worth billions. 

Clearly self-esteem and quality of life are on the line.

People of all ages, levels of income, and educational background still hold the belief gimmicks, quick fixes, fad diets, and potentially dangerous supplements are the solution.

There are many reasons why weight management is so elusive. Lack of knowledge: some people are not educated in proper nutrition, cooking methods, and exercise. This can be learned. Lifestyle: some people know what to do, but they choose not implement these skills because of a lack of motivation. Stress: some people adopt healthy habits, but due to anxiety, depression or boredom, they overeat.

Despite noble efforts, the issue of weight is still puzzling. Very few doctors other than practitioners of functional medicine look beneath the surface to determine which factors may be contributing to this frustrating condition.

Ideally, the body is supposed to eat and digest real food for energy. What if the very foods you are consuming are damaging your gut, provoking an autoimmune response, or triggering blood sugar irregularities? Perhaps you are allergic to certain substances and chronic inflammation is keeping on the water weight? Or, has anyone ever considered an underactive thyroid gland, multiple hormonal imbalances, drug interactions, perimenopause, toxic overload, and chronic stress?

While some people do well by simply switching to a clean, anti-inflammatory diet, others require lab testing to determine specific causes that may contribute to their state of poor health.

Dr. Caroline has combined computer-generated body composition assessments, full spectrum lab analysis, specific dietary and lifestyle modification, with cutting edge technology of the BrainCore system for clients who appreciate premium level weight management coaching. You will not find this approach anywhere but at Balance Atlanta.
