Dr. Strauss uses a comprehensive approach of pharmaceutical and nutritional sciences to help his patients lose weight safely and effectively. We use natural hormones and nutrients to help direct your body to use up calories from fat. So instead of storing the fat, you are metabolizing the fat stores into energy and by-products of metabolism. The intended result is a safe, effective and rapid method of weight loss.
Dr. Strauss offers specialty injections to help you rid yourself of your fat tissue. The injections are a medically assisted weight loss program that involves taking injections along with following a reduced calorie and carbohydrate diet and increased physical activity. As part of the diet, Dr.Strauss recommends weekly shots to boost your energy and augment weight loss.
Methionine, inositol and choline are the primary compounds in the injection. The injections are taken weekly for a period of about three months to boost weight loss. Methionine, inositol and choline are known as "lipotropic substances" that help you burn fat while maintaining proper liver function.
All of the compounds in the shots are naturally occurring in the body. Methionine is an amino acid that helps prevent excess fat buildup in the body. Inositol, as part of the B-complex of vitamins, is supposed to help redistribute body fat. Choline is another compound that is classified as part of the B-vitamin group and does play a role in the body’s ability to transport fats through the blood. Vitamin B-12 may be administered as a separate injection along with the shots, or a dose of B-12 might be included as part of this medical “cocktail” to boost energy.
