Medically-Supervised Weight Loss Programs
Nearly two years into the pandemic, the CDC recently released data that shows what we’ve probably been suspecting all along — that the pandemic has made us more obese, as a country. Likely due to quarantines and the resulting decrease in physical activity and all the increased stress and anxiety brought on as a result of the pandemic, obesity is a more significant public health issue than ever before.
Whether you’re looking to lose some of that excess pandemic weight in time for your pictures during the holidays or you’re looking ahead to a new start for the new year, Russell Medical offers medically-supervised weight loss programs that can help you achieve permanent weight loss while helping you reach your short-term and long-term health and wellness goals along the way. Known to improve your mood, energy, blood pressure, cholesterol, blood sugar, and sleep, healthy weight loss also reduces aches and pains and your risk of heart disease.
Because there’s no one-size-fits-all solution for weight loss, the medical professionals at Russell Medical know that success starts with a program that’s as unique as you are. Beginning with a comprehensive physical and laboratory evaluation, the experienced staff at Russell Medical will guide you and support you with proper nutritional counseling, energy supplements, and prescription medications to help you manage your appetite and cravings. In addition, you’ll have access to a personal health coach and prepared meal plans to help you achieve and maintain your success. Because we know that losing weight the healthy way isn’t an easy road when traveling alone, our team of health experts will provide you necessary support and encouragement, while also helping to keep you accountable and motivated every step of the way!
Get Your Flu Shot at Russell Medical
Now more than ever, it’s incredibly important for you and your family to stay healthy this flu season. Not only does a flu shot reduce your risk of contracting the flu, but it also helps to reduce the severity of the illness, should you contract it. In addition, getting a flu shot also helps to reduce the likelihood that you might transmit the flu to someone close to you that might be at high-risk for more severe symptoms, hospitalization, or even worse. An annual flu shot also goes a long way in helping to protect your community by way of herd immunity. When enough people in a community get a flu shot, it lowers the risk of spreading the disease throughout the community, which obviously benefits everybody in the community.
