Weight Loss Spa
Your Long Term Weight Loss Plan
Weight loss can be a challenge for many people, often because every piece of the health puzzle is not being addressed. By utilizing therapies that address the whole person and look at the internal physiological and behavioral causes of weight gain, healthy weight loss goals can be achieved and maintained, while overall health and vitality are elevated to new heights.
In many people, diet and exercise is not sufficient to lose weight, why is this? It is because there are often numerous dysfunctional physiological cycles in that person’s body that are keeping it weighed down (no pun intended). Blood sugar, hormone level, toxic load, gut health are all reasons that will thwart weight loss efforts. For most people it is incredibly relevant to begin to explore these as it makes diet, exercise and stress management much more effective.

“A life changing experience”
“VeraVia was truly a life changing experience for me! I learned more in the two weeks I was there than I had reading and listening to all the diet and health information out there for years prior. The key for me was how personal the program is designed to be and how dedicated each and every staff member was to instilling confidence in me. I had so much love and support from the very first day.
I had been suffering from post-menopause symptoms including weight gain, hormonal imbalance, fatigue, and high blood pressure. My high stress job impacted my sleep quality and I struggled with acid reflux for ten years. From my stay at VeraVia I lost 27 pounds and continued to lose another 60 pounds following my take-home plan and implementing everything I learned at VeraVia! I was also able to eliminate my acid reflux for good, and decrease my blood pressure over 25%! After my stay at VeraVia I continued my success by completing my first 10k, I was also able to stop using prescription drugs to treat my hormone imbalance, high blood pressure, and acid reflux. I completely changed the way I eat even with my hectic work schedule.
I simply felt compelled (and still do) to succeed at making the kind of changes that will allow me to live my best and healthiest life. I would go back in a heartbeat!”
