Best Drug Free, Doctor Supervised Weight Loss Program in Los Angeles and SFV Area

By: Dr. Ojen Masrour on August 23, 2017

When you want or need to lose weight in the San Fernando Valley, there seems to be a miracle solution everywhere you look. But there are hidden dangers in extreme diets, and there are certainly potential side effects from both over-the-counter diet pills, and even prescription weight loss drugs.

In some cases, prescription weight loss drugs may be appropriate and medically necessary. However, most of men and women in the San Fernando Valley will benefit more from a lifestyle change, which focuses on healthy eating, moderate exercise, stress management, and lifestyle changes.

A sampling of side effects reported from both over-the-counter diet pills including Alli, and prescription weight loss medications such as Xenical, Belviq, Contrave, Saxenda, Adipex, and Qsymia range from moderate to severe. Some of the reported side effects of weight loss drugs are:
  • Abdominal cramping
  • Constipation
  • Cough
  • Diarrhea
  • Dizziness
  • Dry Mouth
  • Fatigue
  • Gallbladder Disease
  • Headache
  • Incontinence
  • Increased Blood Pressure
  • Increased Heart Rate
  • Insomnia
  • Kidney Problems
  • Low Blood Sugar
  • Painful gas
  • Pancreatitis
  • Suicidal Thoughts
  • Vomiting
Although some men and women may experience no side effects, others may have severe reactions to weight loss drugs. That's precisely why First Line Therapy has been designed as a 100% drug free weight loss program. Men and women in the San Fernando Valley and throughout greater Los Angeles who are ready to lose weight under the supervision of a doctor, but without using prescription weight loss drugs, will find First Line Therapy to be a perfect program.

Custom-tailored to each individual, First Line Therapy is available at Healthy Transformations, a Lifestyle Medical Group in West Hills, and combines healthy eating plans with a reasonable exercise program, along with lifestyle coaching. In other words, First Line Therapy is 100% drug-free, doctor supervised, and proven sustainable weight loss plan.

While you're losing weight, it's important to ensure that you're not depleting your body of much needed vitamins and nutrients, so nutritional testing is also included with First Line Therapy. Natural vitamin supplements or injections may be recommended if deficiencies are found. However, First Line Therapy does not require or suggest the purchase of any pre-made diet foods, and does not follow a strict elimination diet.

Men and women looking for a drug-free way to lose weight safely under the supervision of a physician, should consider First Line Therapy offered at Healthy Transformations. As a natural, effective, sustainable, drug-free weight loss program in Los Angeles, First Line Therapy is often covered by insurance.
