Family Doctors take a holistic approach to helping people lose weight and keep it off. We analyze people's blood work, consider their family history and lifestyle, and identify factors that are contributing to weight gain.
Dr. Seysan educates patients on Healthy Weight Loss using a holistic approach that considers each human body's chemical makeup, the patient's lifestyle and family history. A personal weight loss consultation can help identify your path to medically safe and healthy weight loss.
Each human body processes food and beverages at a different metabolic rate. The rate of metabolism is regulated by the thyroid gland.
Also contributing to weight gain is the brain/nervous system. The brain sends messages to people letting them know when they are full, how much more they need to eat, etc. Medications can be prescribed to help the brain send the "I am full" message sooner, so that people eat less.
Some people eat too much as a coping mechanism because they are depressed or anxious. Various medications can be prescribed that open pathways in the brain, allowing people to take on more activity. Rather than sit and eat, they go out and do more things.
A third contributing factor to weight gain is the vitamins and nutrients that we consume, our diet. Our bodies need vitamins and enzymes from fruits and vegetables, protein, good fats and carbohydrates. These are found in berries, eggs, beans, nuts, oranges, sweet potatoes, broccoli, tea, spinach, yogurt and other foods.
Our bodies convert carbohydrates to triglycerides, which cause high cholesterol. We need whole grains, but we don't need pasta, rice, white potatoes, breads, processed foods. Patients will see dramatic health benefits from cutting these foods out of their diet.
Family physicians always consider family history when recommending treatments to patients, because patients are at an increased risk of heart disease, diabetes, cancer and other conditions if their parent, brother or sister has been diagnosed.
At the Flower Mound Family Health Center, Dr. Seysan will educate patients on Healthy Weight Loss using a holistic approach that considers each human body's chemical makeup, the patient's lifestyle and family history.
