Obesity is a risk factor for a number of serious medical conditions including heart disease, diabetes mellitus, high blood pressure, and cancers.
In addition to poor dietary habits and lack of physical exercise, a compromised metabolism is often part of the problem especially among middle-aged people. Comfort eating is often a way for people to deal with stress, depression and anxiety.
At the Yang Institute of Integrative Medicine, we regard weight control not as a cosmetic issue but a health issue. Weight loss is really a byproduct of improved metabolism, lifestyle, and emotional, behavioral and spiritual well-being.
Our services provide integrated strategy and treatment for weight control.
