B12/MIC Shots

Vitamin B12 combined with MIC in an injection is used to facilitate weight loss and boost energy, aiding in the use of food for energy and in the breakdown of fat.

What is MIC stand for?

MIC stands for Methionine, Inositol, and Choline

Methionine: An essential amino acid, meaning that it cannot be synthesized in the body. Methionine helps form SAM (S-adenosyl methionine), which is the “activated” form of methionine. SAM does the following:

Breaks down estrogens Carnitine synthesis (the fat carrier molecule of the body).

  • Choline synthesis.

  • Creatine synthesis.

  • Epinephrine synthesis.

  • Melatonin synthesis (aids in sleep, a powerful antioxidant).

  • Nucleic acid synthesis- a component of DNA Breakdown of histamine.

  • Glutathione synthesis (the major detox antioxidant of the body).

  • Maintains cartilage health.

Inositol: A B vitamin and a primary component of cell membranes. Inositol does the following:

  • Transports fats through the body

  • Helps convert food into energy.

  • Helps neurons communicate better with the body’s nervous system.

  • Vital for hair growth.

  • Inositol combined with choline produces lecithin, aiding in the breakdown of fats such as cholesterol. 

Choline: Similar to the B vitamins but not “officially” a B vitamin, yet often placed in the B vitamin category. It is an essential nutrient which is water soluble. Functions of choline in the body:

  • Normal functioning of all of the body’s cells.

  • Brain and nerve function.

  • Liver metabolism.

  • Transportation of nutrients though out the body.

  • Has been linked to a decreased risk for Alzheimer’s disease and dementia.

  • Decreases the risk for heart disease as it helps break down fat such as cholesterol.

  • Helps prevent accumulation of fat in the liver- often known as Fatty Liver Disease.


Diet-Counseling

  • Meal replacement diet Narrowing your food choices helps you work towards weight loss and management by controlling the amount and types of food you eat.

  • Medical supervision Utilizes the expertise of physicians to help you lose weight safely.

  • Lifestyle education to help you achieve and sustain better health through nutrition, exercise and lifestyle changes.

  • Counseling Individual and group counseling by experts who understand your challenges.

  • Ongoing personalized support Included both during and after weight loss to help you achieve and maintain success.


Vanquish me

The Vanquish system is a non-invasive, non-contact Selective RF Technology that selectively heat adipose tissue to the point of apoptosis, while surrounding tissue remains unaffected. It is the greatest invention for fat burning and also the best treatment in the market so far. Vanquish destroys fats and leaves no pain and side effects. The result is a. safe and natural decrease in the adipose tissue layer.

How does the Vanquish procedure work?

The Vanquish delivers energy based on the impedance of adipose tissue, The devise constantly adjust energy delivery in order to induce and maintain homogeneous heating of the tissue. Once the adipocytes reach therapeutic temperature, the adipocytes will become apoptotic, resulting in the cell death.

How hot is “hot”?

Fat cells have lower conductivity than the surrounding tissue such as skin and muscles. The Vanquish is able to selectively heat the fat cells to the temperature of 44-45 Celsius while the surrounding tissue remains unaffected at 40-41 Celsius.


Infrared Body Wrap

Infrared energy is a form of heat therapy used to treat arthritis, rheumatism, muscle spasms and joint pain. This highly beneficial energy is easily absorbed by the body. Penetrating deep below the surface of the skin, it creates increased blood circulation. Swelling is reduced and pain is relieved. Infrared heat therapy is also used for the successful treatment of Fibromyalgia in many patients. Infrared energy is similar to the energy produced during exercise.

The body releases fat and toxins into the blood stream where it is removed naturally, through perspiration and urine. Reduced inches from targeted areas also results in overall weight loss. When these incredible thermal heat wraps are done several times a week along with control of calorie intake, great results are possible.
