About Medical Weight Loss

The Medical Science Behind Weight Management

The way the body manages weight gain and loss is complex. In addition to the intricate relationship of eight different hormones that impact the weight management process, the process also must take into account other physiological factors presented by patients, as well as pharmaceutical elements that are introduced into the equation.


Treating Overweight & Obesity Effectively

While there are common misconceptions about what medical weight loss means, in the CMWL lexicon, there is no confusion. It is not weight loss surgery and it is not simply prescribing pharmaceuticals. It is viewing overweight and obesity as serious disease states – conditions that cause damage and increase a patient’s overall risks for developing chronic conditions such as hypertension, diabetes, high cholesterol and over fifty more illnesses, including cancer.

Because of its impact on overall health and well-being, and its complex medical nature, we strongly believe that the most qualified person to address overweight and obesity is you – the medical provider. You already have the medical training, hands-on patient experience, and clinical expertise to be able to effectively take on your patients’ challenges with weight management. And all you are missing is the more in-depth training and skills required to bring your overweight patients back to good health – and keep them there.

Once you gain the basic knowledge about the CMWL medical weight loss approach, you can begin to implement the CMWL program in your own practice.
