The majority of Americans are overweight. If you have come to this page, you most likely have the desire to weigh less than you do right now. If you do indeed possess this desire, you have come to the right place — you have found not just a weight loss solution, but an ongoing partner in long-term weight management.
For several years, Dr. Kane Lai operated a dedicated weight loss facility, and helped thousands of clients to reach their weight loss goals. Helping people achieve a healthier weight is a passion of Dr. Lai’s, and he is committed to your success from the moment he meets you. This is not a silver bullet. Any weight loss answer that is quick and easy will not work — at least, not for very long — not in the long term.
After assessing your current lifestyle, medical history, and dietary habits, we will discuss options for you and best plan of action. We do offer a personalized HCG diet protocol to appropriate patients for a very effective jumpstart to your weight loss plan. We may also encourage a proactive detoxification plan prior to intitiating your HCG diet in order to cleanse the body of toxins and prepare the body for its transformation.
BioViveMD seeks to be a source of support and motivation. We don’t just tell you what to do and send you out the door saying “good luck”. We monitor you closely and have regular scheduled appointments to help you progress. Some clients will need to visit us more frequently than others — we will review this in your initial assessment and planning session.
Our weight loss methodology is for someone who is ready to make a change and who realizes that true and permanent change takes time and effort. However, the good news is that we have at our disposal all of the latest methodologies, supplements and treatments that can support your program. We only use and recommend the highest quality nutritional supplements and pharmaceuticals. Dr. Lai welcomes all of your questions about his weight loss methods and background.
As a clinic dedicated to wellness, we incorporate nutrition and detoxification into the overall wellness plan for any individual. Many of our clients seek our guidance and help in becoming healthier from a dietary and nutritional standpoint, as well as achieving and maintaining a healthy weight. It’s common knowledge that in today’s world, we absorb, breathe in and consume more toxins than any population ever before. Hundreds of chemicals a day enter our system, and our bodies were not designed to process these chemicals. It makes sense to clean these toxic elements from our bodies. This is accomplished by adjusting what foods are eaten to accomplish a typical cleanse for a specific element such as heavy metals or yeast, as well as taking the appropriate supplements in conjunction with the food changes and regimen. These two efforts combined result in a removal of toxic products from the body and an overall better feeling. The majority of those who participate in a nutrition and detoxification program report that they feel good and have more energy than before. Dr. Kane Lai has significant experience in weight management, diet and nutrition, and detoxification. He applies this knowledge with great care for every client, and identify areas for improvement and potential change. At BodyViveMD, you will get a personalized, custom plan that takes your individual needs, body type, weight and lifestyle into account. Not everyone needs a cleanse or a detox. But you can find out once you have completed the initial visit and assessment with Dr. Lai.
Detoxification is an important aspect of weight loss and health. We live in a very toxic world and are exposed to an ever growing quantity of toxins through our everyday lives. There are toxins in our food supply, our water supply, the air we breathe, and the chemicals we use at home. We expose ourselves to chemicals with the products we use to keep ourselves healthy, such as soap or toothpaste. Fortunately, we all were designed with the expectation that bad things would enter our bodies, and we have mechanisms to defend against toxins. On the other hand, many of us become overwhelmed with toxins. We can no longer defend against the load of toxins to which we are exposed, and we have difficulty clearing them from our body. Toxins start to accumulate and interfere with the way we function. It’s as if no one is taking out the garbage at your house. Garbage would build up and your daily activities would become more and more difficult to accomplish. When we accumulate toxins, our immune system becomes less efficient, our metabolism becomes sluggish, and we have trouble producing energy. We need somewhere to put these accumulated toxins, so our body maintains fat to keep them stored. This makes it very difficult to lose weight and can also cause many other problems that will drag your overall health down. A large toxic load can manifest with a variety of symptoms such as fatigue, pain, anxiety, depression, or skin problems, just to name a few. When this happens, we need to actively clear toxins from our body and restore our body’s ability to process and remove toxins. Fasting, juicing, lemon water with maple syrup diets, and colon flushes are a just a few of the “programs” I have heard about through my patients. To design a quality detox program, one must first understand how we naturally detoxify and then try to enhance this process. When toxins enter our body, they are eventually carried to the liver. The liver is a complex organ with a network of enzymes that help to chemically convert toxins into a form the body is able to eliminate. Once the liver completes its chemical conversion of toxins, they can be carried out of the body through the gut (stool), kidneys (urine), skin, or through breathing. This process takes energy, so you need to have good nutrition throughout the process. You also need to stop putting toxins into your body. You can’t put a fire out with water, if you have a gas leak dripping into the flames. While detoxing, you need to limit your exposure to environmental toxins and eat a diet that limits toxic exposures and limits the impact on your immune system and digestion. You also must simultaneously enhance kidney, gut, and skin function. Additionally, targeted supplements must be used to enhance liver function and help mobilize stored toxins. It takes a comprehensive approach to address the entire detox system. It sounds complex but can be done easily with right guidance. Detoxification is a great way to jump start any weight loss or health maintenance program.*
