Medical Weight Loss

At Valia Lifestyle, we understand that achieving and maintaining a healthy weight is a fundamental component of overall well-being. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), close to 42% of Americans are living with obesity.

We recognize the impact that excess weight can have on health, and we're dedicated to guiding you on a transformative journey to better health.

Our founder, Dr. Ingrid Edshteyn, is triple-board certified in Preventive, Lifestyle, and Obesity Medicine and specializes in medical weight loss solutions. Dr. Ingrid’s expertise extends to using innovative treatments like semaglutide (Ozempic®/Wegovy®) and tirzepatide (Mounjaro®/Zepbound®), which play an important role in our weight loss program.

Impact of Weight on Health

Excess weight has implications for your health and metabolism. Obesity and overweight conditions are often associated with an increased risk of chronic illnesses such as heart disease, diabetes, and metabolic syndrome. 

At Valia Lifestyle, our approach to weight management goes beyond quick fixes and is grounded in scientific principles. Our focus is on addressing the underlying factors contributing to excess weight, allowing us to tailor a holistic plan designed to optimize your metabolic health.

Our Medical Weight Loss Program™

Whether you're looking to lose a few pounds or make a substantial transformation, we'll work closely with you to create a tailored plan that considers your unique health and metabolic profile. Our medical weight loss program is not just about the numbers on a scale, it's about enhancing your metabolic health. 

Dr. Ingrid Edshteyn’s specialized training and experience in medical weight loss make her the ideal guide on your journey. Our personalized weight loss solutions go beyond quick fixes, providing a comprehensive approach tailored to your unique needs.

Ozempic for Medical Weight Loss

Ozempic® is an injectable prescription medication, also known as semaglutide, that was initially designed to treat type 2 diabetes. However, its unique properties have led to an exciting breakthrough in the field of obesity and metabolic health.

Ozempic® influences several key pathways. It stimulates the areas of the brain linked with appetite and cravings, leading to reduced food intake, thereby helping individuals manage their weight. 

Additionally, Ozempic® can slow the emptying of the stomach, allowing you to feel fuller for longer periods. These combined benefits make Ozempic® a good choice in medical weight loss for those in whom it is appropriate.

At Valia Lifestyle, Dr. Edshteyn's approach combines this innovative treatment with a holistic perspective, addressing not only weight loss but also the broader goals of metabolic health. 

Personalized Holistic Plan and Metabolic Health

While Ozempic® plays a central role in our medical weight loss program, it's not the sole focus. We encourage the optimization of metabolic health, including factors like blood sugar control, lipid profiles, and inflammation levels.

Sometimes, the presence of additional mental health issues, such as depression and anxiety, can make it harder to get to a healthy weight. Those who are struggling with depression face a higher risk of being overweight, making weight loss goals feel even harder. 

Our distinctive approach involves prioritizing mental health, serving as a catalyst for sustained long-term weight loss. Enhancing mood and building good health habits is the central goal of our Ketamine Assisted Lifestyle Medicine (KALM) program.

Coaching & Fitness Support

Our approach also includes coaching and fitness support that takes into account the importance of physical activity in optimizing metabolic health. Ozempic® alone won’t make you more fit and strong. 

So, our plans include ongoing coaching that focuses on your fitness goals and uniquely addresses the key drivers influencing behavior, including stress management and emotional resilience.
