Physician’s Guide: Using Blood Test Findings To Safely Induce Weight Loss

Obese Americans now outnumber those who are merely overweight.Overlooked are a plethora of research findings indicating substantial fat-loss effects in response to the proper use of bioidentical hormones, certain prescription drugs, and nutrients, along with lifestyle changes. The reason these proven weight-loss strategies have not caught on is that when used in isolation, they often fail to meet the expectations of corpulent individuals. In this eye-opening report, Life Extension discusses how to interpret blood test results to utilize an armada of medications, natural hormones, and lifestyle alterations that can safely induce substantial and sustainable weight loss.

Here, we introduce a novel multi-modal nutritional approach to removing excess body fat stores, especially in the abdominal region.
