Important Note About the Nutrition Program
Your nutritional plan during the 2 weeks prior, during treatment and 2 weeks post treatment should also not include grain based foods (bread, bagel, pasta, rice, cereal, cookies, cakes, crackers, tortillas, chips, etc.). Sugar, honey, maple syrup and artificial sweeteners should also be avoided. After your treatment series is complete, Dr. Tim will discuss with you the optimal amount of grain-based foods that you can re-introduce to maintain your fat loss.
Your doctor or Zerona coach will discuss the best nutritional supplementation for you to optimize your results. Targeted supplements will ensure your body has all the essential nutrients required to mobilize and excrete fatty acids, as well as support detoxification. Additional supplementation may also be recommended based on your individual needs to promote you feeling and looking your best during and after treatments. We will arrange for supplementation to shipped directly from the lab to your home or office for your convenience.
Cholesterol Reduction Using Zerona LipoLaser Treatment
In 2010, the American Journal of Cosmetic Surgery published a non-randomized, non-controlled pilot study to assess the efficacy of laser therapy in the noninvasive reduction of cholesterol and triglyceride serum levels. Recent research suggests that Zerona may be an effective method of lowering cholesterol. In a recent pilot study, eighty-four percent of study participants demonstrated an overall reduction in total cholesterol serum levels when comparing baseline and study endpoint levels.
Nineteen individuals were enrolled in the study and treated with a 635nm laser light. A standard lipid panel was studied before the procedure to establish a baseline and at the end of the second procedure week. When the cholesterol and triglyceride levels before and after the laser therapy were compared, 84% demonstrated an overall reduction in total cholesterol when compared to baseline (The American Journal of Cosmetic Surgery, Nov. 2010).
While this preliminary study was too small to recommend the Zerona laser for cholesterol lowering, it does show another promising benefit of the fat loss procedure. Many clients come to us with elevated cholesterol levels. We have seen an amazing correlation related to the reduction of cholesterol while performing Zerona laser treatments.
We work diligently with each client at Optimized Wellness Center to achieve their desired goals. Clients consult with us daily about weight loss, reducing body fat, reducing inches due to body fat, getting into better overall shape while developing a healthier lifestyle.
