We utilize a variety of medications including appetite suppressants and new drugs that act on dopamine and serotonin receptors in the brain. We also use diabetic medications that help alter poor metabolisms in non-diabetic patients. These drugs have been proven effective and are FDA approved for weight loss.
Semaglutide is a medication that belongs to a class of drugs called glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonists. It works by binding to and activating GLP-1 receptors, which are found on cells in the pancreas that produce insulin, as well as in other parts of the body, including the brain, stomach, and heart. When semaglutide binds to GLP-1 receptors, it triggers the release of insulin from the pancreas, which helps to lower blood sugar levels. It also slows down the emptying of food from the stomach, which can reduce food cravings and help people feel full for longer periods of time. Additionally, semaglutide can stimulate the production of a hormone called glucagon-like peptide-1, which can help to improve insulin sensitivity and reduce glucose production by the liver. Overall, semaglutide works to improve blood sugar control by increasing insulin production, slowing down digestion, and reducing glucose production by the liver. It is often used in the treatment of type 2 diabetes.
Phentermine is an appetite suppressant can be successful in an appropriate patient. It controls appetite allowing you to be more successful with cutting back on calories
Metformin is a medication used to treat type 2 diabetes and off-label for weight loss. It reduces insulin resistance, decreases glucose production in the liver, increases insulin sensitivity, and reduces appetite. However, it should only be used under medical supervision due to potential side effects and interactions with other medications. It is not a substitute for a healthy lifestyle.
HCG is designed for patients who want to be as aggressive as possible with their weight loss efforts. This regimen focuses on doing daily painless injectipons at home while consuming a 500 calorie per day diet. The injection is HCG, a hormone that tells your body to use your stored fat for fuel. Obviously if you only ate 500 calories a day, you would lose weight. But the HCG ensures that the weight you lose is fat, not muscle, and therefore your body doesn't go into startvation mode and your metabolism doesn't slow down. This is a great jump start for patients who are looking for quick results to keep them motivation long term. Patient typically do injections while on the diet for 23-40 days and typically lose 15-25 pounds.
Vitamin B12 and MIC/B-complex Injections
Vitamin B12 is known as the energy vitamin. It plays a vital role in our metabolism and boosts energy, helping to give you the boost you need to workout.
MIC/B-complex injections contain B12 and a variety of other B vitamins to help boost energy and stimulate metabolism. These injections also include three powerful fat burners: methionine, inositol, and choline; which help the body break down fat and use it for energy.
SKINNY SHOTS ARE HERE!!
Castello Wellness now offers the "Skinny Shot" under physician supervision. FDA approved medication from a US licensed compounding pharmacy.
Semaglutide was originally created as a diabetes medication called Ozempic. It was so good for weight loss, that it received FDA approval for weight loss in non-diabetics. It was renamed Wegovy when used for weight loss.
We have the same Semaglutide injections available for hundreds of dollars less than if you bought the brand name medication from the pharmacy.
After physician consultation, your first month of medication is just $100. Then just $200 a month at the lowest dosage. As your dose increases over time, the price also goes up. Most med spas charge $400 a month for the same medication, and you are definitely not supervised by a physician with 30 years of experience like Dr Castello.
