by | Aug 21, 2023 | News

At Melamed Weight and Wellness, we understand that weight loss can be a challenging journey. That’s why we’re thrilled to introduce you to our exceptional medical professional, Doctor Julia Melamed. She is not just a doctor; she’s your ally in achieving sustainable, healthy weight loss. Today, we’ll explore why Dr. Melamed is your go-to expert for medical weight loss and how her state-of-the-art medical spa in Deerfield, Illinois, transforms lives.

Weight Loss Expert

Dr. Julia Melamed has been helping her patients lose weight, look their best, and feel their healthiest since 1998. She is a board-certified physician passionate about assisting individuals to reach their weight loss goals. Her extensive medical expertise and dedication to personalized care set her apart as a leading authority in medical weight loss.

Dr. Melamed’s practice is designed around four key areas of wellness:

  1. Medical weight loss
  2. Medical spa services
  3. Anti-aging and wellness
  4. Bioidentical hormone supplementation

 

The Melamed Weight and Wellness Approach to Medical Weight Loss:

Our medical weight loss program is rooted in science and tailored to your unique needs. Dr. Melamed doesn’t believe in one-size-fits-all solutions; she believes in comprehensive, individualized care. Here’s why our approach works:

Medical Expertise:

Dr. Melamed brings years of medical experience to the table. She conducts thorough assessments to create a personalized weight loss plan, considering your medical history and current health. The doctor will work with you to customize a plan that works for you. For some, that may mean diet pills; for others, it could mean a restrictive diet. It is all about you and your lifestyle!

State-of-the-Art Machines:

CoolSculpting: At Melamed Weight and Wellness, we offer CoolSculpting, a non-invasive, FDA-approved body contouring treatment that can help you achieve the sculpted look you desire. CoolSculpting uses advanced cooling technology to target and eliminate stubborn fat cells without surgery or downtime. With CoolSculpting, you can say goodbye to those pesky trouble areas and hello to a more confident you. Experience the future of body sculpting at Melamed Weight and Wellness.

InBody: InBody is a state-of-the-art body composition analyzer that gives you valuable information. For example, it shows how well you’re doing with your chosen diet or how your skeletal body mass is improving. Additionally, it can indicate if your visceral fat content is diminishing, provide information on your hydration status, and more. It’s available in every treatment room. Moreover, you can download the InBody app to compare and track your progress in easy-to-understand data and charts.

RMR Testing: The RMR (resting metabolic rate) test is a simple, non-invasive test that accurately measures how many calories you burn at rest. During the test, a machine captures and analyzes the composition of your breath. As a result, we can determine your oxygen consumption and measure the rate at which you consume energy.

Holistic Care:

We understand that medical weight loss goes beyond shedding pounds; it’s about overall wellness. Dr. Melamed’s approach encompasses nutrition counseling, fitness guidance, and emotional support.

Functional Testing: Understanding the foods, vitamins, and minerals our bodies do and don’t absorb and digest is essential. And because it’s our goal to give you well-rounded support, we offer nutritional consults and RMR (resting metabolic rate) evaluations. We also offer functional laboratory tests for food allergies, colon health, and micronutrient/vitamin deficiencies. After all, your health is our priority.

Diets: Our diet options vary. They can be individualized regular food diets (like rotating or balanced deficit diets), formula diets for rapid weight loss (like OPTIFAST), or partial supplementation diets (like keto and high-protein diets). Additionally, we offer a 10-day detox treatment. Diets are combined with appetite suppressants when appropriate.

Regular Monitoring:

We continue providing a plan. We monitor your progress, adjusting as needed to ensure your success.
