Weight Management

The Bodhi Clinic Naturopathic Weight Management Program

Dr. Elise Benczkowski is passionate about working with patients on achieving and maintaining optimal weight and recognizes how foundational it is to health and wellness. Excess weight increases the risk of cardiovascular disease, diabetes and cancer. It can also lead to increased pain, reduce sleep quality, and decrease the quality of bones and joints. Obesity is a serious, chronic disease which can negatively affect multiple body systems.

For those of us carrying any amount of extra weight, this can slow us down, leading to lowered energy, mental fog and future health concerns. The causes of weight management concerns are complex, including your genetics, disease state, lifestyle and how your body utilizes energy. Most weight loss programs fail because they do not recognize this complexity, nor do they remove the underlying causes. Naturopathic support for achieving and maintaining a healthy weight treats each patient individually, to look into and address the causes. This support includes a healthy diet and lifestyle program. The natural, safe and effective options promote permanent and sustainable weight loss.

Naturopathic Weight Management Support includes:

  • Identifying and addressing underlying causes:
    • This may involve lab work to evaluate endocrine health, blood work, food sensitivities, gastrointestinal function, nutrigenomics, etc.
    • Naturopathic therapies such as herbs, vitamin/mineral support, homeopathy, hydrotherapy, detoxification and/or counseling
    • Evaluation and improvement of any obstacles that may be preventing successful weight loss
  • Individualized dietary plan
    • Food sensitivities are identified, if necessary
    • Recipe and meal planning resources provided
  • Exercise recommendations and support
  • Lifestyle Counseling
    • To address stress management, sleep support, etc.
