Semaglutide at Parker Integrative Health

measuring bellyMaybe you’ve tried every diet imaginable, and you work out religiously but haven’t been able to shed those stubborn pounds. At Parker Integrative Health, we offer an effective weight loss solution: Semaglutide.

What Is It, and What Are Some Benefits?

Semaglutide is a peptide, a short chain of amino acids, offering a natural alternative for those seeking an effective way to lose weight and keep it off. Semaglutide doesn’t contain any additives, unlike other medications.

A major benefit of Semaglutide is its impact on insulin resistance. For many people, traditional weight loss methods may inadvertently lead to insulin resistance, preventing them from making progress. Semaglutide helps reset insulin resistance, making it a valuable tool in overcoming stubborn weight challenges.

Because being overweight or obese is linked to a myriad of health issues such as diabetes, heart disease, and cancer, our practice wanted to be able to offer patients an effective and safer way to lose weight, and be healthier.

What to Expect

Before starting Semaglutide, our nurse practitioner will do a blood panel to assess the functioning of vital organs, particularly the kidneys and liver, to ensure they can withstand the additional load. If you qualify for this peptide, we will schedule you weekly for in-office injections, which will include methylcobalamin (B-12), weigh-ins and overall progress checks.


Is this for long-term use?

No, Semaglutide is not intended for long-term use. Instead, it helps people shed excess weight and reset their metabolism. The ultimate goal is to transition users to a healthier lifestyle through proper nutrition and regular exercise, ensuring they keep the weight off.

Is it safe for those over 18? Are there side effects?

Yes, it is safe for most adults. Some common side effects include nausea, stomach pain, burping and gas. In most cases, these symptoms should subside after a few weeks.

How long does it take to get results?

The timeline for seeing results with Semaglutide varies from person to person. Factors such as individual metabolism and the amount of weight to lose contribute to the different outcomes. While progress may be slow in the initial months, adjustments in dosage over time lead to significant improvements. One of our staff members lost an incredible 65 pounds in nine months!
