The Many Benefits of Medical Weight Loss

From celebrities to talk show doctors, everyone seems to have finally figured out the best and quickest way to lose weight. Most times, their plans include crash or restrictive dieting or strenuous workout plans. At Nebben Physical Medicine in Clarksville, Tennessee, we believe that true weight loss shouldn’t involve harmful get-skinny-quick strategies or grueling gym sessions. 

Our team of medical professionals led by Dr. John Bassell specializes in a different, better, and safer kind of weight loss: medical weight loss

Overview of medical weight loss

When you come to us for our medical weight loss program, you can rest assured that we use only the best technologies and safest methods. We walk with you along your journey by providing nutritional guidance, diet plans, and other weight loss technologies like whole-body vibration and Invisa-RED™ lasers. 

Why is losing weight important?

Often, losing weight is focused on looking good on the outside. While it’s true that shedding a few pounds can trim your figure and boost your self-esteem, there are so many other health benefits involved with losing weight. Decreasing your body weight even by 5% can lead to:

People who lose weight also experience improvements in their social lives and can even find themselves taking fewer medications. In short, there’s no downside to losing weight, especially if you choose our medically guided weight loss program. 

Benefits of our medical weight loss program

We offer a comprehensive list of weight loss tactics to ensure that your weight loss is safe and lasts a lifetime. Here are a few of the things we provide:

Nutritional instruction

During your first consultations, Dr. Bassell reviews your current dietary habits. Then, with the heart of a teacher, he provides instruction on how to best feed your body to help you lose weight while keeping you feeling full and fulfilled. We create tailored diet plans that fit your life. We might also recommend adding dietary supplements to either curb your appetite or support your nutrition. 

Lifestyle guidance

Weight loss isn’t always about diet. Sometimes, losing weight lies in adjusting your lifestyle and habits. Dr. Bassell offers the support and guidance you need to manage stress, sleep better, and fit exercise into your life. 

Weight loss technologies

At Nebben Physical Medicine, we’re proud to offer two of the most advanced technologies in weight loss: Invisa-RED and whole-body vibration. Dr. Bassell uses these tools to jump-start your weight loss, help you maintain momentum, and sustain the progress you’ve made. 

Invisa-RED uses infrared lasers to attack and destroy your fat cells. This procedure is noninvasive and virtually painless, making you look more sculpted and boosting your weight loss. 

Whole-body vibration is a great way for you to burn extra calories without a gym membership. During this procedure, you stand or sit on a machine that has a vibrating platform, and this sends energy throughout your body that makes your muscles contract.

Losing weight on your own or with outrageous diets isn’t effective and doesn’t translate to lasting results. If you’re looking to lose weight once and for all, call our office or schedule an appointment online to get started.
