CONTRAVE® is a prescription-only, FDA-approved weight-loss medication that may help adults who are overweight or struggle with obesity lose weight and keep it off. CONTRAVE is believed to work on two important areas of the brain—your hunger center and your reward system—to reduce hunger and help control cravings.2 By adding CONTRAVE to your weight-loss plan for a full year, you could lose approximately 2-4x more weight than with diet and exercise alone.
A B12 deficiency can create problems even before anemia develops. It has serious, pervasive symptoms including tiredness, weakness, dizziness, shortness of breath, constipation, and more. It can also sabotage body systems responsible for weight management.
During aerobic exercise, which contributes to fat loss, the body relies strongly upon its respiratory and circulatory systems. Both of these are hindered by low B12 levels. In that case, exercise may produce fewer results, and fatigue means sufferers will be incapable of prolonged exercise.
B12 deficiency can lead to long-term weight control problems. When the body’s natural balance is disrupted, it typically responds by slowing down your metabolism, conserving fat stores, and burning fewer calories throughout the day.
Like many vitamin deficiencies, B12 problems are easily treatable. While it’s a good idea to change dietary habits to include more B12, injections are often the best way to return to a healthy and more energetic lifestyle. Nusbaum Weight Loss Centers of New Jersey offers a range of quick, easy nutrient injections which include methylcobalamin (the most easily absorbable form of B12) when you are feeling symptomatic.
Our experienced weight loss physicians design a personalized treatment plan customized to each patient. Through comprehensive testing, we can diagnose vitamin deficiencies and then develop a strategy to restore health quickly and naturally.
Adrenal & Cortisol Stress Test — a simple blood test that can detect issues associated with the adrenal gland. Weight gain is often a survival response. Our bodies are under attack from all directions: too many processed foods, too many environmental toxins, and too many pressures of daily life- not to mention the heavy use of caffeine that we sometimes need to get through the day, especially when we have not had enough sleep.
Genetic testing — helps in identifying your genetic makeup, allowing us to design a diet and exercise program customized to your body’s specific needs.
Micronutrient analysis — a blood test that may reveal deficiencies in select vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and other essential compounds
