Lose weight, improve your health, and gain confidence with Optifast®, a medically supervised weight management program. Optifast has a long-standing legacy in clinical nutrition with more than 40 years of experience in weight loss.
Medically Supervised Weight Loss
The Healing Waters medically supervised weight loss program, Optifast, is a customized approach to weight loss, nutritional balance, metabolism support, energy restoration and overall health and well-being. The program, which usually lasts 26 weeks, utilizes a full meal replacement plan that transitions to self-prepared ‘everyday’ meals, in conjunction with comprehensive patient education and support. Adjunct therapies including nutritional IV (intravenous) infusions, vitamin injections and hormone treatment may also be recommended.
All individuals begin with a clinical evaluation with a nurse practitioner for an in-depth health history and discussion of your challenges with weight loss and any other health related issues. Lab tests are utilized to determine your health status and rule out any risk factors. From there, your nurse practitioner will create a personalized weight loss plan based on your specific weight-related health issues and weight loss goals.
If you are interested in the program, but uncertain if it may be right for you, we invite you to start with a complimentary informational consultation with a Healing Waters nurse practitioner.
