Medical Cannabis and Certification Q & A

Why can’t I lose weight?

It’s common to struggle to lose excess weight, and it’s often because you’re not giving your body what it needs. Following fad diets and other crash courses will only leave your body confused and can potentially cause you to gain more weight.

Losing weight is about more than just diet and exercise — it’s about understanding what your body needs to become its absolute best. This can’t be accomplished by fad diets. This is something that you and the team at Integrative Family Medicine can explore together. When your body gets the fuel it needs, not only does the weight come off, but you feel better than you ever have before.

What is medical weight loss?

Medical weight loss services at Integrative Family Medicine are comprehensive and successful. The caring staff assesses your current health to create the best possible weight loss plan based on your specific needs.

A member of the medical team gets to know you, your likes, your dislikes, and your daily routine. They work with you to better understand your weight loss goals and start developing a natural, personalized diet plan. Plans include a comprehensive list of foods that you should integrate into your diet, along with meal suggestions and cooking tips for a healthier lifestyle.

After your diet plan is developed and delivered, a series of follow up appointments that act as check-in points in your weight loss journey are scheduled. If at any point you’re unhappy with your results or plan, the staff at Integrative Family Medicine is happy to make adjustments.

Are there any other treatments that can help me lose weight?

Integrative Family Medicine offers a few treatments that can help you shed even the most stubborn weight. Some of these services include:

  • B12 injections for weight loss
  • Lipotropic (fat burning) injections
  • Bioidentical hormone therapy
  • Glutathione

These treatments are designed to give the body a little bit of extra help when losing weight. They can target areas of your body that are clinging on to excess weight and help it release the specific hormones it needs to properly manage your weight.

Struggling with weight loss can be one of the most discouraging times in a person's life. The friendly and caring staff at Integrative Family Medicine are excited to help you restore confidence in yourself and your body with natural weight loss treatments.

Medical Marijuana

Medical Marijuana has certainly become a buzzword in recent times. Almost everyone has heard of it, but how much do we know about the benefits? We at Integrative Family Medicine (IFM) want you to know that we offer Medical Cannabis Cards for qualified patients, and here's why:

Medical Marijuana can help with:

  • Anxiety
  • Insomnia
  • Pain Relief
  • Ease side effects from cancer treatments
  • Stimulate appetite
  • Seizures
  • Digestive disorders
  • Glaucoma
  • PTSD
  • Parkinson's and more!

It's important to point out that the benefits of Medical Marijuana are best realized when the two primary ingredients are present; CBD and THC. CBD and THC are the Yin and Yang of the Cannabis plant. In the State of Maryland, to be able to legally get access to THC in a cannabis product you need to have a Medical Cannabis Card. So to get a superior product, and superior care come to IFM!
