As a naturopathic doctor with special training in obesity medicine and cardiovascular health, Dr. Christine James developed an innovative weight loss program to meet the unique medical needs of her patients. In some cases, prescription appetite suppressants like Qsymia, Contrave, HCG, or Belviq may also be utilized.
The program is whole foods based, and depending on your medical condition, your weight loss doctor will help you select a supervised program that can be modified to fit your needs. The program is focused on nutrient rich foods that support optimal function of your metabolic system.
Our behavioral support program provides encouragement, education and tools to help maximize the success of our patients. Discover common weight loss pitfalls and strategies to help you overcome them. In addition, patients have access to resources, from cooking techniques to fitness plans.
Activity is an integral component of weight loss and maintaining a healthy weight. Whether you need a basic activity plan you can begin at home, referral to a physical therapist, or an individualized exercise program at a gym, we can assess your needs and motivate you with a plan that gets you moving.
The Quantum Medical Weight Loss philosophy is composed of four main components that ensure success for our patients. By approaching weight loss under the care of a physician and combining that level of supervision with whole foods, behavioral support and a fitness component, our patients are achieving sustainable results.
We measure our success based on pounds lost and the resulting health of our patients as they achieve weight loss milestones. We don’t stop there – we measure the success of the program based on the sustained changes over extended periods of time. We are constantly asking – are these lasting results?
The Quantum Medical Weight Loss program is composed of two plans that can be tailored to meet the needs of our patients. The Rapid Plan follows a strict low calorie diet for safe, rapid weight loss. The Accelerated Plan adheres to a reduced calorie diet combined with a fitness component.
Your personal trainer meets you where you are and customizes a three-phase exercise program, according to NASM standards. Beginning with an initial stabilization phase (approximately four weeks), you will establish proper form and create healthy habits. With a solid foundation, you’ll transition to the strength building phase (about six weeks), as your muscles continue to define, tone, and sculpt. Then your trainer will customize the remainder of your program to help you maintain momentum and meet your specific goals with confidence, skill, and mastery.
