Weight loss can be a challenge, and due to metabolism, body composition, or genetics, it can be much more challenging for some than others. That's why strategically using every tool that is available can make the difference when it comes to seeing real results. Our Carmel Semaglutide can offer an option to help aid and speed up weight loss and can be used alongside other holistic strategies to provide real, long-term weight reduction.
At The Center for Fully Functional Health, we strive each day in all we do to live up to our name. For us, Fully Functional means tackling complex health issues from all sides to help patients improve not only individual symptoms, but their overall health and well-being. The same is true with our medical weight loss treatment plans. We do not just inject patients and walk away; we take a comprehensive approach to address any and all barriers in your weight loss journey to ensure long-term success and a healthier, better quality of life. Results with Semaglutide are dependent on patient compliance with all instructions, and we look forward to working with you to help you achieve your body health goals.
Semaglutide is a protein that can induce substantial weight loss through appetite suppression and the regulation of glucose levels. This medication belongs to the GLP-1 receptor agonist category, which closely resembles the body's natural response when generating its own glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) hormone. By prompting insulin release and inhibiting glucagon production, Semaglutide creates a sustained sensation of fullness following meals and stimulates weight loss. It is administered through weekly self-injections, and the dosage is gradually increased over time.
This treatment is an excellent choice for those seeking weight loss, increased confidence, and an overall health transformation. As a non-surgical, no downtime method, Semaglutide allows patients to avoid the potentially serious risks that surgical interventions might involve. Our Carmel Semaglutide patients enjoy benefits that include:
Candidates for Semaglutide treatment typically have attempted alternative weight loss approaches like dietary changes and physical activity without success. Meeting specific criteria is essential to be an eligible candidate for weight loss treatment using Semaglutide, including taking other relevant health factors into account.
Your holistic Semaglutide journey at The Center for Fully Functional Health begins with an all-inclusive Semaglutide appointment package. This package includes the clinician appointments and baseline testing needed to ensure Semaglutide is a good fit for your body and needs and to identify any additional health concerns. If a thorough health history and labs show that you are a strong candidate for this weight loss therapy, our team will help create a custom package that includes Semaglutide, as well as hands-on diet and lifestyle resources, health coaching, and body composition analysis.
Please note, individuals dealing with severe or chronic gastrointestinal disorders, liver or kidney disease, and certain other medical conditions are likely not good candidates for this particular weight loss method. In addition, patients under 18 or over 75, along with those who are pregnant or nursing, are advised to refrain from using Semaglutide. If that is the case for you, we recommend a Weight Management Focus Appointment package to explore other options to achieve your weight loss goals. If you'd like to find out if you'd be a good candidate for Semaglutide Carmel functional medicine doctors at The Center for Fully Functional Health can address that and answer any other questions you may have.
The administration of Semaglutide injections should always be carried out under the guidance of a healthcare professional. This ensures not only minimized risks but also maximizes the potential outcomes. Given its potent properties, strict adherence to the prescribed dosage regimen and guidelines is crucial when using Semaglutide. As a holistic functional medicine practice, our goal is to also coach you on a healthy lifestyle and diet and work to address any underlying issues that might make sustained weight loss difficult.

Married team, Dr. Ellen Antoine and Dr. Scott Antoine, lead The Center for Fully Functional Health along with their stellar medical staff.

This treatment has been proven to be effective and has helped many patients lose substantial weight throughout their body, including difficult-to-lose belly fat. However, it is up to the individual patient to follow treatment plans as advised to ensure their success.
When used under the guidance and supervision of a medical professional who can properly assess dosage, Semaglutide has minimal associated risks, and any side effects can be easily managed. Our doctors encourage patients to personally assess benefits, risks, and expectations, and we will discuss all of those factors with you thoroughly during your initial Semaglutide appointment.
Since doses must be gradually increased so your body can properly adjust, Semaglutide takes about two weeks to get into your system. Many patients see noticeable results around week eight and a majority by 12 weeks after starting treatment.
The cost of Semaglutide therapy varies depending on how much medication is needed to reach your particular weight loss goals, as well as factors surrounding any additional health concerns you may be experiencing.
