Staying Healthier

We help you achieve a balance between the amount of fat your body stores and the amount of energy you burn. Whether you have type 2 diabetes, prediabetes, high cholesterol, fatty liver disease, hypertension, PCOS, sleep apnea, heartburn, weight management issues, arthritis, or any other chronic health condition, good metabolic health is the key to staying healthier, and maintaining your ideal weight.

What is metabolism?

Metabolism is basically every chemical process in your body necessary for the maintenance of life. It is the biological theory of everything.

Are you metabolically fit?

When you consider that only 12% of Americans (1 out of 8) are considered metabolically healthy, and that every person brings a unique set of metabolic factors that all require individual assessment, it’s no wonder that so many people need help to lead healthier lives. Whether you are focused on achieving your ideal weight, avoiding pre- and type 2 diabetes, or simply reducing your medications, ThreeHealth can be your guide to metabolic health success.

Your metabolism, weight gain, and overall health is directly affected by insulin levels.

If you’ve been told you have insulin resistance, you are not alone. 70% of obese women and 80% of adults with type-2 diabetes are insulin resistant. In addition, insulin resistance accompanies polycystic ovary syndrome, cardiovascular disease, hypertension, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, and has been linked to some cancers, Alzheimer’s disease, and even mental health disorders. At ThreeHealth, we teach our patients how to reduce their insulin resistance, and live healthier lives.

What to do if you are pre-diabetic or have type-2 diabetes?

You’ve received your diagnosis, but now what? You want to improve your overall metabolic health, and of course, you want to lose weight. But maybe you’ve lost weight in the past, and then gained it right back. If that’s happened several times, you’re probably destroying your metabolism in the process. And that just makes it harder to maintain weight loss, and easier to regain the lost weight, and then some. At ThreeHealth, we’ll give you the tools to take better care of yourself.

We’ll teach you how to use food as medicine.

Our approach to metabolic health and weight loss is to decrease body fat and maintain lean muscle mass. A Ketogenic diet can improve insulin sensitivity, and as we pay close attention to not just what and how much you are eating and exercising, we’ll also look at the timing of your meals. And by following several cardio-metabolic markers that regular doctors usually don’t check, we’ll create a customized health plan based on your specific body composition and lab results. Together, we’ll be on a discovery mission to guide you, support you, and help you become the expert of your own body.
