What is Body Composition?

Body composition is a method of breaking down the body into its core components: fat, protein, minerals, and body water. It describes your weight more accurately and provides a better glimpse into your overall health than traditional methods.

Body composition analysis can accurately show changes in fat mass, muscle mass, and body fat percentage.

 

Why is Body Composition Important for Weight Loss?

Most diet and fitness goals focus on weight loss or gain, overlooking that two people of the same sex and body weight may look completely different from each other because they have a different body composition. Body composition describes the amount of fat, bone, water, and muscle in the body. Measuring your body composition will tell you your own body’s unique makeup and help you identify areas to work on to improve your overall health and wellness.

Body composition analysis is a method of describing what the body is made of, differentiating between fat, protein, minerals, and body water to give you a snapshot of your health. InBody is in the business of body composition analysis, and we’re here to help you reach your health goals from the inside out.

Lipo-Plus Weight Loss Injections

 

In addition to basic B12 injections, we offer Lipotropic injections which help with boosting metabolism, burning fat, and regulating blood sugar to aid in weight loss.  When used as a tool along side diet and exercise, these have the potential to help booster your weight loss results.

About Lipo-Plus

Lipo-Plus is a weekly injection that can be used as short or long term as the patient would like, given it is aiding in their weight loss efforts.

Lipo-Plus works in multiple ways, but the major different between this formula vs. other Lipotropic formulas on the market is the ingredient, Methylated B12.

Methylated B12 is our bodies natural form of cobalamin (vitamin B12).  As compared to synthetic B12 (cyanocobalamin), methylated B12 is more readily absorbed (especially by injection), and your body recognizes this form of B12 more than other forms on the market.

Other Ingredients

Inositol, Riboflavin, Methionine, L-Carnitine, Thiamine, Pyridoxine & Choline

IV Nutrient Therapies

 

IV vitamin therapy delivers nutrients directly to the bloodstream and makes them instantly accessible by the body for use.

Intravenous therapy, or IV therapy, bypasses the digestive tract and transports hydration and nutrients directly to your bloodstream. A nutrients IV is a specific type of IV therapy that efficiently administers vitamins, minerals, hydration, and medications to the body through an IV drip.

Small Intestinal Bacteria Overgrowth (SIBO) Testing

 

What is SIBO?

SIBO is when the bacteria that live in your small intestine are overgrown and the things that normally maintain balance among your gut flora aren’t working. It’s normal and healthy to have bacteria living in your small intestine, but too many can cause problems with your digestion — especially if they’re the wrong kind. The wrong bacteria can overwhelm the beneficial bacteria that you need to be there, and they can upset your digestive system by feeding on products that aren’t meant for them.

How is testing done and what does this test for?

SIBO testing is done at home collecting multiple “breath” samples throughout a 3 hour period.  You will first drink a liquid, which the overgrown bacteria will use to produce hydrogen and methane, which will then be elevated in your breath.  Elevated levels of these two gases rising a falling within that 3 hours indicates you have SIBO.

Food Inflammatory Testing (FIT)

 

What does this test for?

This test tests your blood for “long term” antibodies to 176 different foods.  It also tests for something called Zonulin, which can indicate leaky gut.

When small particles of food are able to cross into your intestinal membrane, these small particles sometimes cause the intestines to respond with inflammation within the GI tract, which can cause troublesome symptoms, such as bloating, diarrhea, abdominal discomfort, acid reflux, and/or excess flatulence.

What is the difference between a food sensitivity and food allergy?

The difference between a food allergy and sensitivity is the body’s response. When you have a food allergy, your immune system causes the reaction. If you have a food sensitivity or intolerance, the reaction is triggered by the digestive system.

  • Symptoms of food intolerance include gas, bloating, diarrhea, constipation, cramping, and nausea.
  • Symptoms of food allergy include hives, swelling, itching, anaphylaxis, and dizziness.

How is testing done and what does this test for?

This test is completed with a quick blood sample. The blood is tested for IgG and immune complexes to 176 different foods.

Adrenal Stress Testing (Cortisol)

 

What is Adrenal Fatigue?

Adrenal fatigue is thought to occur when the adrenals have been overworked to a degree that they can no longer secrete levels of cortisol that are adequate for optimal function.

How is testing done and what does this test for?

This test is collected using Saliva samples. You will collect your saliva and different periods throughout the day, including upon waking up for the morning and then several more time in a 24 hour period.  The sample is then analyzed for Cortisol levels, which low levels during certain parts of the day indicating adrenal fatigue.

Leaky Gut Testing

 

What is Leaky Gut?

Tight openings in the intestinal walls allow water and nutrients to pass through into the bloodstream while keeping harmful substances inside. In Leaky Gut Syndrome, these openings become wider, allowing food particles, bacteria, and toxins to enter directly into the bloodstream.

Leaky gut may cause or contribute to the following symptoms: chronic diarrhea, constipation, or bloating, nutritional deficiencies, fatigue, headaches, confusion, difficulty concentrating, skin problems, such as acne, rashes, or eczema, and/or joint pains.

How is testing done and what does this test for?

Lactulose and mannitol are ingested for this test.  You will then collect urine which will test for the presence of these two markers.  Lactulose and mannitol are substances that should not be able to pass through the intestinal wall into the blood stream.  If they do, they are excreted in urine.  High levels in urine after drinking the lactulose/mannitol beverage indicates leaky gut syndrome.
