Obesity

Overcome Obesity with Weight-Loss Counseling in Lynchburg, Roanoke, and Forest, VA

Modern society has mercifully become more aware of, and sensitive to, the need to respect and honor people of all shapes and sizes -- but that doesn't mean that carrying excess weight is okay from a health perspective. Obesity is a known factor in some terrible diseases and disorders, from chronic joint pain to life-threatening organ problems. But instead of reaching for risky, ineffective fad diets, turn to the safe, medically sound weight loss offerings at Genesis Health Solutions, serving Lynchburg, Forest, Roanoke and surrounding communities.

The Dangers (and Discomforts) of Excess Weight

Obesity is both uncomfortable and dangerous. Extra weight places an extra burden on your weight-bearing joints, which can lead to premature arthritis in your ankles, knees, or hips. It also contributes to chronic muscular strain and nerve impingement syndromes such as sciatica. But even more serious than the aches and pains you may feel are the serious systemic consequences you may face. Obesity has been linked to heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, organ failure, and several types of cancer. That's why shedding the excess pounds isn't just a matter of vanity; it's a potential lifesaver.

Unfortunately, losing weight both safely and in the long term is often easier said than done. The wealth of unhealthy food choices in this modern world can make proper nutrition a huge challenge, and metabolic slowdowns can add to your frustration. Fad diets may offer nothing more than short-term water loss and/or dangerous malnutrition. The secret to genuine weight loss lies in learning how to eat well as part of adopting a whole new healthy lifestyle -- and that's where Genesis Health Solutions can come to your rescue.

Safe Medical Solutions from Our Genesis Health Solutions Team

Our nutritional practitioners will evaluate your baseline health, discuss your weight loss goals with you, and figure out how your current lifestyle may be undermining your efforts. We can then provide personalized nutritional counseling and exercise recommendations. You'll gain invaluable insights into what to eat, how much of it to eat, and how to keep your metabolism operating at full efficiency.

Even the most successful weight loss programs may leave a few stubborn pockets of fat here and there. But we can help you with those, too. Our non-invasive body contouring processes use red light to create tiny pores in fat cells. The fat then

drains out so it can be used or eliminated by the body.
