Weight Management for Women with Hormone Optimization
The struggle to lose weight and stay slim later in life is common, and the trouble with most weight loss programs is that they fail to uncover the real cause. Additionally, those traditional programs don’t recognize the unique roadblocks women face to boost metabolism and burn fat. Many women report regular issues with keeping weight off (even with diet and exercise), feeling constant hunger, intense food cravings, and hitting a plateau after losing 5-10lbs.
Permanent weight loss requires a holistic approach to health.
Losing weight isn’t always as simple as calories consumed and calories burned. Hormonal imbalance, genetic factors, an accumulation of toxins in the body and other health conditions may be to blame.
The Evexias approach to weight loss is based on treating the body as a whole. We specialize in identifying the root cause of each patient’s weight loss struggles and don’t push one-size-fits-all plans. You are unique.
Hormone optimization requires an integrated approach
The Evexias team approach to female hormone optimization is evidence-based and does not involve experimentation or guessing.
We ascribe to a functional medicine model, which focuses on identifying and treating the root cause of each patient’s medical issues. After a proper diagnosis is made we strive to achieve hormone balance (or homeostasis) through a combination of hormone replacement with nutrition and gut health protocols where needed. While some women simply experience a natural decline in hormones, others may have difficulty metabolizing hormones or struggle with low thyroid, leaky gut, toxicity, vitamin deficiencies and other ailments.
Consequently, the practitioner may prescribe thyroid supplements, detoxification protocols, nutritional supplements, weight loss programs and other treatments in conjunction with bio-identical hormone replacement pellet therapy.
During your initial consultation, our team of weight loss experts will perform a thorough exam and analyze your overall physical health and wellness. With this insight in hand, we can customize a plan that addresses your individual weight loss and wellness goals. Your plan may include:
HEALTHY TRANSFORMATION™ WEIGHT LOSS
The Healthy Transformation™ Weight Loss Program was clinically designed to stimulate the metabolism and burn unhealthy fat.
This nutrient-rich program supports overall health, so you look and feel better. The program centers around a unique food plan that controls carbohydrates that can impede weight loss.
The plan also includes a vast selection of key vegetables, rich in phytonutrients – health-promoting compounds, which are loaded with essential vitamins and minerals. Healthy protein options help maintain muscle while you lose fat, leading to a more balanced body composition.
You’ll receive a consultation with a health practitioner, protein, and a phytonutrient-rich food plan, menu plan and recipes, advanced nutritional support: a simple exercise plan, daily supplement packets, probiotics, fiber mix and low glycemic protein bars.
CLEAR CHANGE™ DETOXIFICATION
Each year, more than 4 billion pounds of toxic chemicals are released into the environment; these toxic chemicals can accumulate in the body. While the body usually rids itself of harmful chemicals, sometimes the sheer volume of toxins can overwhelm the body and accumulate in our tissues.
An unhealthy diet lacking in proper nutrients can exacerbate the problem. Over time, the body’s metabolism slows, and physical and mental fatigue can set in.
Clear ChangeTM, is an easy-to-follow, science-based, detoxification program developed by Metagenics®. It enhances the body’s natural metabolic detoxification process and provides fuel for both cleansing and other daily activities. Depending on your individual needs, your practitioner may recommend either a 10-day or 28-day program.
HEALTHY WEIGHT DNA INSIGHT™
According to clinical studies, genetically appropriate diets have helped many people lose more weight and keep it off. By analyzing a sample of your blood, Healthy Weight DNA Insight™ can reveal genetic information to help you overcome roadblocks to weight loss.

Common supplements we recommend include:
ADK: A combination of Vitamins A, D3, and K2 to support bone and cardiovascular health

Iodine: A nutrient to promote hormonal balance and whole body health
IMPORTANT: Before taking any supplement, please consult your healthcare provider.
There are two types of hypothyroidism. With Type I, the thyroid gland doesn’t produce an adequate amount of thyroid hormone, something that is easy to diagnose. Conversely, with Type II hypothyroidism, the thyroid produces sufficient levels of hormones, but the cells are unable to utilize the hormone properly.
Hypothyroidism has been deemed an epidemic by leading physicians and endocrinologists alike. While Type I is typically diagnosed and treated early in life, Type II is NOT, and some experts estimate 50 to 80 percent of the population suffers from the misunderstood and misdiagnosed sister to Type I.
Chronic pain, cancer, sleep apnea, diabetes, heart conditions, gastrointestinal ailments, and reproductive disorders are just a few ailments that can be caused by hypothyroidism. We recommend (and prescribe) natural glandular therapy and iodine to treat the symptoms of thyroid insufficiency because it produces far superior results to synthetic thyroid hormones.
When you’ve hit a plateau, Slim Shots may be the extra kick you need in your weight loss journey. Slim Shots are prescribed for generalized weight loss, and we typically recommend this treatment for patients who need help boosting metabolism and accelerating fat removal from the body.
The Slim Shot formula includes a carefully composed mixture of B vitamins, amino acids, and lipotropic agents.
Vitamin B-12 plays a vital role in the Slim Shot formula because it supports the nervous system, formation of red blood cells, energy production and fatty acid synthesis.
Powerful fat burners, lipotropic agents (choline, inositol, methionine and adenosine monophosphate) facilitate the breakdown and metabolism of fat.
If other diet and exercise programs haven’t worked for you, we can help. Our weight management specialists can explain the options available to you and schedule a confidential consultation for you with our medical team.
“Many patients come to us with symptoms of depression, anxiety, insomnia and mood swings. We focus on identifying the root cause – typically hormone imbalance – instead of band-aiding those symptoms with medication.”
