If you’ve tried and failed to lose weight in the past, the experienced medical team at The Alternative Touch Wellness are here to help.
Lean & Fit is The Alternative Touch’s medically supervised, science-based program that targets the underlying cause of weight gain and obesity: metabolic dysfunction. With metabolic dysfunction, your muscles and liver stop working together to keep your blood sugar from spiking. This causes insulin resistance and puts you at a higher risk of diabetes, heart disease, fatty liver, and Alzheimer’s and dementia.
Lean & Fit enables you to reach and maintain a healthy weight without excessive dieting or exercise. It uses objective data—your personal bloodwork—to measure your improvement and help you feel your best while promoting optimal wellbeing.

Why does medical weight loss work?
Having the right tools in place for weight loss, such as nutritional education, accountability from a health professional, and access to medical care, is why medical weight loss is often more effective than other weight-loss programs.
The experienced team at The Alternative Touch Wellness offer a personalized approach to weight loss. They tailor each diet and nutrition program to your specific body and medical profile in order to help you achieve optimal results.
You might discover that simply balancing hormone levels allows you to drop weight after years of past failed attempts.
What should I expect during my initial appointment?
Your provider reviews your medical history, weighs you, and checks your vital signs. They discuss your weight-loss goals and complete a comprehensive health exam.
Your practitioner may recommend blood or imaging tests to detect or rule out an underlying medical condition that affects weight loss, such as a thyroid problem or hormone imbalance.
If your hormone or nutrient levels aren’t within a healthy range, The Alternative Touch Wellness provider may recommend hormone therapies, vitamin supplements, or medications to get your levels back on track.
They may also suggest appetite suppressants or meal replacements to keep you from feeling deprived and to prevent nutritional deficiencies.
The Alternative Touch Wellness offers nutritional counseling and helps you create a personalized, reduced-calorie weight-loss meal plan.
How often should I attend weight-loss sessions?
Weight loss is about whole body wellness. If you’re overweight and don’t implement healthy habits now, the odds of gaining more weight are high, which translates to a greater risk of health problems.
