Functional Weight Loss

How can I lose weight? It’s a question that millions of Americans ask every day.

What is Functional Weight Loss?

Functional Medicine is healing-oriented medicine that takes into account the whole person, including all aspects of lifestyle. It emphasizes the therapeutic relationship between practitioner and patient, is informed by evidence, and makes use of all appropriate therapies.

Functional Weight Loss applies the tenets of functional medicine to the standards of a conventional approach to weight management practices to tailor the most appropriate treatments for a person’s individual health benefits and disease risks.

Why Functional Weight Loss?

In recent decades, obesity has reached epidemic proportions. Have you tried “every diet known to man” and still find you cannot lose weight or maintain your optimal weight over time? Did you know you may have a genetic predisposition to metabolize foods in a certain way that has caused these difficulties? You can actually alter the expression of your genes, which is largely controlled by the microbes in your gut! Did you also know that decreased resiliency to stress and poor-quality sleep make it nearly impossible to lose weight for some people?

Dr. Bargas has stepped outside the conventional approach to weight loss. At Bargas Wellness, she performs in-depth evaluations of multiple factors contributing to weight maintenance issues, offering alternatives you have not tried before.
